  1. I'm not able to have the fullscreen mode "saved" so that when I open the app, it starts in fullscreen. It wasn't an issue before Twitch started with all these updates. But now it is...HELP!!!

  4. Enable the view counter and time streamed as a part of the overlay when in full screen. Make these numbers only appear on hover/ mouse over.

  6. It would be a good idea to add a custom Disconnect Protection image to allow channels to keep their branding through a brief disconnect for example a custom image which informs the viewer of a potential issue.

  7. 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.

  8. Twitch doesn't see the games I have installed in my external hard drive. When I try to launch with the shortcut, I get a message that the game is not installed

  9. Hey you ever open the twitch app and UH OH missed your favorite stream by a few weeks so you go to look for it but it's not the latest video any more. "what am I to do????" you think to yourself.
    Welllllllllllll if you look closely there's a button that says "videos" but when you click the button it opens your browser. why?! you built an app to watch twitch and forgot V.O.D. and clips. get them in there.

  10. 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."

  11. Since it appears our game libraries are going to be eventually pushed over to the Amazon Games app, can you please make it so that it detects the games already installed via the Twitch app?

    I don't really care which app we have to use, but I don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall all of my Twitch games on the new application. Until this happens, I refuse to use the new app.

  12. I was wondering why my VODS on twitch had no audio in them, then I see it's a common issue with people who have soundtrack, as a reddit user pointed out: "Seems like it's related to the Twitch Soundtrack plugin which I noticed you use. Its intended to remove music from VODs but a lot of people have been having issues with getting everything routed correctly despite following the exact instructions." https://www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/jw6ovc/no_game_audio_nor_discord_audio_in_vods_but_can/

    Same type of thing on OBS Forums: https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/any-idea-why-my-in-game-sound-is-muted-in-vod-but-works-when-live-mic-works-for-both-twitch.131970/

  14. If I click a Discord link, the Discord app opens.
    If I click a Steam link, the Steam app opens.
    If I click a UPlay link, the Uplay app opens.
    If I click a Twitch link, my browser opens.

    Please add a file type "twitch link" to Windows during the app install so that we can link the app to that file type in the bwoser settings.

  15. What you have right now is a great start but I feel like some important features are missing. As a new user, I find the app confusing, disorienting, and a little overwhelming when you look at it. I don't recall if there was a "Getting started" tutorial when I started Twitch for the first time, but if there isn't - there should be. Also, I'd really love and appreciate a way to view my user profile. As it stands I don't find it easy unless I type in a URL to do so, which is fine, but most programs have…

  17. It is pretty straight forward. Have the ability to create own playlists or favorites on Soundtrack by Twitch.
    Didn't know exactly where to suggest this, so I went here.

  18. Make it where we can use the twitch app to go to our previously downloaded mods and use them while offline. During this pandemic theres no telling how many people lost connection.

  19. Currently, pop-out chat panels exist when watching a channel's livestream, but when watching a past broadcast or video, the pop-out chat option is not available. It'd be great if it could be included, as the feature is there for certain usecases anyway, but not in this case. This is very helpful to those of us who use 2 monitors, and would like to keep the video full-screen on one monitor, and keep just the chat window on a second monitor.

    Thanks in advance!

  20. The full string could be seen in the drop down prior to the UI revamp, but now it is narrower and requires you to open the drop down to see which game version is selected.
