  1. The popout player is bugging out. If you are watching a stream then use the popout feature and then close the popout, you can still hear the stream in the background. You can keep opening the same stream and you will have multiple audio's of that stream even though they are supposedly closed.

  2. I like that i can choose where minecraft should be installed.
    I hate that it always ends up in C/users anyways, ignoring my choice.

  3. Twitch watch parties doesn't work at all in the Windows app. all I get is "Playback error". embedded webbrowser likely needs updating.
    it used to be cute early in July when it, despite working, told me "Your web browser is out of date. Update your browser now to continue watching Prime Video after May 31."

  5. I've been using the Twitch Desktop app for well over a year, and over the past few months its been getting increasingly buggy to the point where I no longer want to use the app unless the following bugs are fixed.

    1. Any time the App loads or changes stream pages, it forcibly minimizes the window. Additionally, the window needs to be selected twice upon a system boot, as trying to maximize the window the first time will forcibly minimize it.

    2. Opening a stream in a new window via a middle click results in stream audio you cannot get rid of…

  6. When given a suggested clip from a streamer on the homepage, with the latest version it does not play that clip, rather it attempts to open then errors, causing a gray box to appear instead.

  7. When i using the app for desktop, if I open (for example) 2 tabs: one with sound and the other with silence, when i close the one with sound i still can listen the stream even if the tab is close. The second tab that is silence when i put it with volume, both sounds mix each other. So i have to fully close the program and re-open it to "fix it". It's a minor problem, but it can be tedious sometimes

  8. When you open a channels 'videos' page and open either a VOD or a Clip, if you then try to switch channels by clicking on a Channel in your follows list on the left side of the window, you are met with the 'Time Machine' error screen. The error persists if you continue trying to change channels. The error is cleared if you return to Twitch's homepage by clicking on the logo in the top left.

  9. As with browser, not only does the popout player in the desktop app not inherit the latency setting of the parent window but additionally (and unlike browser) the latency toggle in the popout appears to have no effect!

    I love the popout miniplayer and use it a lot, it would be awesome to have latency control fixed at some point.

  10. If I pause a broadcast and then leave the room, I don't want a broadcast to be playing when I come back.

    But there often is a broadcast playing when I come back because a raid happened.

    If I'm paused before a raid, I should be paused after the raid too.

  11. The User Account Control (UAC) dialogue should only appear if an update is available or has to be installed etc.

  12. When an update is available during playback/browsing while in full-screen mode (F11), users can't click neither the "update" nor "dismiss" buttons. This works with custom-size and maximized windows, however.
    When a similar bar (in yellow) appears to inform the user about the loss of connection, the button-click area has a vertical offset, also in full-screen mode.

  13. Why am I unable to delete the Twitch folder? Its locked with no user permissions, and icacls can't even read it. Even getting out a linux distro, I can't remove this **** folder. What is going on!?
    I am the administrator of my machine. I should have full access to my system. Even getting a tool called "PSEXEC" (which runs commands at SYSTEM level), I can't change permissions or remove this file. What gives?

    EDIT: I can't even remove the program.
