  1. Crowdsourced Timestamping

    The majority of YouTube's content is fairly short, in the <1 hour range. By contrast, Twitch's content is largely uncurated and long-form, running >3 hours. It would be immensely helpful to have an official Timestamp system for each video where you can mark points of interest in uploaded videos. Viewers could review the full list of timestamps and click them to jump to the relevant points of the video. This would be difficult for streamers to maintain alone, so opening it up to viewers (specifically Channel Editors) to timestamp videos would be very helpful.

    Let's Players could use this to…

    • Upload to Youtube problems

      This is made to be feedback, but I did not see that listed in the drop-down menu. This is probably because it is open beta, but every time I have exported an uploaded video from Twitch to Youtube, it has automatically failed. If I need to give more details, please tell me. This does not happen with videos streamed to Youtube; rather, the success rate exists.

      • Sorting options/ability to set recommended sorts

        Right now Uploads are sorted along with other videos by # Views only. Over time this will cause older videos to naturally rise to the top and will make it very difficult for new uploads to compete. Having additional sorting options will help mitigate this issue in the Games Browser. It would be helpful if individual channels could specify a recommended default sort for their own uploads (If for example, I'd rather my viewers see my VODs in order of their upload date instead of # views).

        • Character count for Description/Tag Creation

          A feature that allows you to view how many characters are allowed and used while typing up both your description and tags.

          As suggested in another idea, tags at the moment are rather restrictive on just how long individual tags can be, but in my experience it seems like there is also a rather low tag limit (i.e., I enter a lot of tags and it seems that the first few will be removed in favor of the last ones that I entered)

          Some plugins/addons for sites such as YouTube (vidIQ, TubeBuddy) or Reddit (RES) have similar functions when creating…

            Thanks for the feedback! We are working on this. How many characters do your typical tags have?

          • Tag Suggestions Based on Type of Videos

            Back in the day you'd start making tags on a Youtube video and than Youtube would suggest tags based on what's popular/what tags you've already made.

            I would love if they implemented something like that on Twitch uploads!

            • Change the description size or spot

              At the moment the description underneath a video looks pretty big for the amount of information that is in it. I think it would fit better on the right side of the page so it could make place for other video's or other new features.

                Our new channel page is constantly being improved and your feedback is appreciated! Do you currently fill out the description field in your videos, and typically how long is it?

                • Unable to Upload anything from my PC

                  The share feature on my playstation 4 was able to save and upload a video onto Twitch but I have yet to be able to upload anything with my PC. I'm not sure what is wrong or why it refuses to accept the videos that meet every requirement. If I'm missing something I've got to know
