  1. Currently, overlay extensions only overlay the video on PC.

    Please allow overlay extensions to overlay the video on mobile too.

  2. Extensions can currently be used to leak IP addresses.

    Currently there is a host of scammers who create follow bots who idle in streamers chat to bait the streamer to visit them, steal their IP address and in turn send blackmail messages that threaten to DDoS the streamer unless they pay a ransom.

    A system needs to be created to prevent this. Something like:
    - An option to disable extensions globally
    - Have viewers approve extensions before they are enabled on streams
    - Have Twitch manually approve developed extensions before they can be added to stream pages

  3. Enabling overlay extension ("Ctrl+ Stream Kit" tested in particular but probably any) currently makes it impossible to pause/unpause livestream in web player with spacebar hotkey until "Pause" icon is clicked with a mouse at lease once since page load.

  4. I seem to have a persistent issue with users who are banned from my chat still being able to use my extensions to troll/harass me, resulting in the deactivation of the extension until the user moves on. Please have extensions check for banned users and disallow them to use the extension on my channel if they are banned. This is a particularly large issue especially with the Sound Alert Extension. Imagine being spammed with a "RIP" alert every thirty seconds just because you banned a 12 year old from your streams. Not Fun.

  6. Probably 95% of Bits are provided through Twitch Chat by typing e.g. Cheer100.

    This way of using Bits is explained and well-known for Twitch viewers. Not allowing Twitch Developers to use the same functionality is a direct limitation and provides an inconsistent user experience.

    For example, let's say we have a game called "Racer". Join the race with bits and race against other viewers. Viewers type racer100 in Twitch chat and join the race.

    Every developer gets a certain code (racer) similar to the extension name, and the amount determines the action. The action list is communicated with !racer, more…

  7. Add the "Extensions" feature to Twitch Studio! Rather irritating that it's not available on the official studio software.

  8. Add it so I can make a comment to the twitch streamer without having to DM them on discord or whisper, please.

    /comment Care for [user] being toxic in chat with [ ] .

    Just would make things easier IMO and helps a lot if the streamer gets issues with running discord or any other issues.

  9. With more and more funny and useful extensions coming out it would be really helpful if the amount of slots could be bumped up by a lot, the 2 overlay, 3 panel is just not cutting it.
    And if the mobile overlay use isn't coming any time soon, make it so that we can place an extension in both the overlay and panel slot at the same time, so that we can cater to both types of viewers.

  10. Allow mobile viewers to seean overlay whiles using the extension Overlay Expert. Seriously this kinda sucks for me because I like checking my own stream or watching a friend’s stream and I can’t see the overlay they have set

  11. When an Extension goes through constant improvement cycles the Extension versions start to pile up on the developer dashboard. There doesn't appear to be a particular order in which the versions are displayed so it becomes a tedious task to find the latest one just by looking through the small semver text on the thumbnail.

  12. Good day.
    I suggest adding add-ons for the chat.
    Namely, translation of the chat in real time into different languages.
    For the convenient use of foreign citizens.
    So that every Twitch member can customize the translation of the chat text they know.
    And also provide the opportunity to select the translation of the chat text separately for the streamer.

    How viewers see the chat :
    nickname1 - Hello!
    nickname2 - Hola!
    nickname3 - Привіт!

    How the streamer and viewers will see the chat by setting up the translator extension:

    nickname1 - Hello! [EU]
    nickname2 - Hello! [ES]
    nickname3 - Hello!…

  13. Today extensions (overlay extensions) are only available on certain web browsers (for PC/MAC).
    Make it available/work on all browsers.

    Today extensions (overlays) don´t work on mobile and tablets (apps).
    Make it available/work on mobile and tablet apps.

    Please also find a way to make extensions synced, be able to be used in replays/VOD´s/Clips.

  15. I have idea for Twitch related service (including extension) and I would love to charge streamers whose using the service, by flat amount or by calculations of number of viewers/subs.

    The project would consist of 4 parts: the Twitch extension, few cloud services, app installed by the streamer and website for promotion and payments. While I don't think I can charge streamer via Twitch for installing the extension on their channels, there is question: Can I charge the streamer for using the associated app/cloud services?

    I imagine the client side app (on the streamer side) in order to work properly…

  16. I really wish those popular streamers add the closed captions to their stream for the viewers who is Deaf including myself. It's 2021 already though. Is there a way you could force them to add it? I would be much appreciate it!

  17. A system similar to what Steam has: Trading Cards that can be unlocked by engaging with the streamer. (Requires the streamer to have such feature enabled; The streamer can design and upload their cards and set conditions such as drop rate, how to get them, say by following, subscribing, donating etc.)

    Each user would have their own trading card menu in their personal dashboard, to check which have been unlocked, from which streamers, etc.
    Viewers can also trade cards with others if they have doubles, etc.
    Collecting all cards from a streamer could also unlock a badge or whatever the…

  18. There is a very large community that makes content for Twitch directly from your PS4 or Xbox console, and we do not have all the advantages that streamers have from PC, developing "exclusive" extensions for streams from console can help this community too much.

  19. I have an issue with every extension on twitch. Somehow I can not use them or see them properly, nor can I edit their overlay. http://i.prntscr.com/6yBRgWI-RoGQF7VgFUJc2w.png

    How can I fix this? I tried new browsers, updating my extensions, reinstall extensions, tried to use twitch app, clearing internet cache and cookies, relog-in, but still the same. Is something wrong with my account? Because everyone else see them properly shown, I just don't see them right.
