  1. Ability to select certain videos or collections that can be accessed by subscribers

    Would be great if we could select either collections or individual videos that were subscriber only videos and default the rest to public view. Or have a way to schedule out when they go from private (subs only) to public. As of right now we do that between YouTube and Twitch, YouTube being the public channel and Twitch VOD's being the subs only viewing. Having Twitch be both would be more than nice.

    • Video Processing Que Clear

      I have like 15 Videos stuck in the Processing Video Producer tab on my Twitch. Why isn't this Fixed yet Twitch? (At least let me delete these failed attempts or Invent a clear Que Button that just Force Quits all processes in the Que?) There is no 3 dots at the side that allows me to delete these eyesores. I tried uploading a .mov today. 4GB and 2 times it failed so now my Que is even larger. Stuck in infinite processing.

      I feel like this problem started when they changed the processing so that only affiliates could Publish a…

      • FLAC support

        While I understand the initial limitation with bandwidth required AAC limited to 160kbps when Twitch first started out along with a lack of native support initially, I fail to see why FLAC audio streaming, as per what Tidal offer for their premium service, can't be offered as an option, particularly for the entertainment and arts streams where audio quality is more crucial than for gaming streams where visual quality takes precedence.

        Computationally, particularly with multicore CPUs with hyperthreading, it should be relatively easy to enable encoding on the fly without a degradation in streaming quality and not impact much on…

        • Searching a video within a channel

          For now, the video section of a channel only highlight the latest ones or show them all depending on some filters.

          What about having a search engine? In my case, I'm syncing over 1700 videos from a Youtube channel et on the frontend or backend of the channel there's no way to search for a specific video to, for example, modify things, check stats, etc.

          Thanks for your attention

          • bulk delete

            I wish there was a way to delete videos in bulk. For someone like myself who uploads a LOT of vids and not have to go through deleting one video at a time if that time comes.

            • Watch Later Queue

              It'd be great to be able to add content to a queue that I can then watch later, in the order it was added, at my convenience.

                under review  ·  Catherine Hsiao responded

                Great idea, we definitely want to work on making the viewing experience better. How often would you say you add things to watch later, and when do you usually return to watch things that you have saved?

              • Channel-Specific Games Browser

                With Uploads, streamers can keep their VOD archive forever. It is finally possible to see a record of every game an individual streamer has played in their career by reviewing their Uploads page. It would be cool to add a "Games Browser" for each channel that mirrors the existing site-wide Games Browser. You would get a searchable view of all of the games represented in a channel's Uploads sorted by total # Views for each game. Streamers could use this to link to archives for specific games they've played on Twitch the way we can currently link to specific games…

                • Show Processing progress as percentage

                  The progress (in percentage) shows when uploading a video, but when Processing that video, no percentage is shown. I've uploaded long (3.5 hours) videos that just show a simple spinning graphic, but eventually successfully finish. For everyday users without patience, it's unclear if the Processing is working or not.

                  • Hide/unlist videos/highlights/uploads on your channel.

                    Making highlight clips for downloading from Past Broadcasts, but not publish clips on your video feed. Can download different clips and but them together as one to upload video section. (with video editing software/site video editor not needed)

                    • Add a scrollbar or search function to the "Add to Collections" list on uploads page

                      If you have a lot of active or semi-active collections, it's currently fairly difficult to add new videos to collections that have moved off the screen in the collection list. Outside of the video info screen you have to scroll the entire page to find the collection you're looking for.

                      It would be nice, if something was done about it.

                      • Allow video uploads without first premiering them

                        Twitch removed the ability to upload prerecorded videos via the Video Manager without first premiering them. Please reintroduce this function. I would like to upload a highlight reel to Twitch instead of using YouTube for that function. Thank you.

                        • Own video platform for Twitch

                          This is originally written in german, because that's my mother language and writing a wall of text in english is not my best property. I used Google Translator for the english version. Maybe there are some weird parts because of the translation, please ask me if you don't understand some sentences. Here we go:

                          I think Twitch needs its own video sharing platform, like YouTu **, to get users more connected to their website and away from the competitors. The current form of video uploading is not user and streamer friendly due to several factors.

                          From the user's point of…

                          • Vodcast like Twitch TV Show

                            Vodcast like Twitch TV Show with planning for the week, so we can create playlist for the whole week and interactive schedule with notification on specific programs (vods/shows) on this schedule. If you ask for what reason? For those who create content besides live streaming and uploading it to youtube, for those who want to share it's content on night time(different time zones) with more structure/feedback to it, and just as an Garage band like system but for Shows: cooking, traveling, forging, tasting etc

                            • When a Collection is clicked, the page should lead to a list of all videos within that collection, not the first video of the collection.

                              It would be easier to find newer content for collections that span over a long period of time.

                              It would also increase visibility for older videos within that collection.

                                • Twitch Video Upload Desktop App

                                  YouTube's largest fail is that fact that they do not have a simple desktop app for the people who upload a ton of content. This app features should contain the ability to put in the information about each video. If you loose connection or site goes down there should be a "resume" button to continue the upload. Make it easier on the user & this and it will encourage everyone to upload more. aka a "Desktop Upload Manager app". Keep hitting those home runs Twitch! :)

                                  • Twitch upload requirements for joining Twitch Affiliate

                                    I've noticed some of the content creators (Like gamers for example) are moving to twitch due to censorship & demonetization against inappropriate videos. (Like gameplay videos with FPS stuff) And like me, there are some content creators who don't broadcast that much but rather upload videos/clips to twitch. So I was wondering if you can be fair to twitch uploaders by adding a second option to join twitch affiliates or partnerships for twitch uploaders. Plz add this, the twitch uploaders depend on you!

                                      Some streamers have to delete a whole VOD just because of something that breaks TOS or because they leak something.

                                      Maybe a command that the broadcaster can type in his chat to censor the last couple of minutes of the vod making it impossible to be clipped or re watched.
                                      For Example:
                                      a stream leaks his address.
                                      he can type something like /VC5 and can blackout the last 5 mins of his vod and any clips created within that time rather then go offline and delete the whole thing.

                                      Dont know if such a thing is possible but it would…

                                        • VODcast schedule

                                          The ability to set when your VODcast goes live would really help with managing your schedule. As a group or individual videos.

                                          If you stream a game at a specific time but you won't be available at that time, to have the VODcast to schedule to go at that time slot would make it alot better.
