  1. Hey, I watch alot of past broadcasts and I don't quite understand why we're all being forced to use this option. It might be good with short videos like on other platforms, but on here it's more painfull than useful.

    Me and probably many other people watch them while going to sleep. So If you wake up and there are random streams marked (auto play plays random pb's for me), it's hard to remember what you actually watched.
    I also noticed that it doesn't always shows what's going to be played next https://gyazo.com/838517e196f50c6d757a3f6d9b1a9a3d .

    I really hope you implement this…

  3. Popout chat during livestreams is amazing for someone like me with two monitors, I wish I could do the same with VODs. The feature to popout the VOD player already exists, however the ability to popout chat is not there. If you could link the time between the VOD and the chat in the VOD so they sync up It would be such a big quality of life improvement to the rewatchability of live streams. Yes theatre mode exists, however the screen size is sacrificed and there is no way to have the VOD's chat overlayed either. Please add a…

  4. Hi! This past weekend was LOL Worlds, unfortunately I couldn’t watch it live. Something that is fairly common, especially when the event is in another time zone.

    But this is no problem as I can always watch the VOD afterwards. But something that is somewhat ruining the experience for me is that I can see the time left of the video.

    However, in the biggest esports such as LOL, CS:GO, OW, and Dota 2 the big tournaments are usually played out using best of matches, meaning they play until one team reach a certain won matches. Because of this the…

  5. The same as when the streamer is live, we move the mouse over the player and it says... playing: (Game) on the top.

    Not a very big feature but nice.

  6. When a stream is live, you can go to the streamer's past broadcasts to watch the VOD of the current stream. But the time remaining (i.e., the length of the VOD) is obviously only as long as the current point in the live stream.

    The annoyance is that this time is frozen to the point at which you started watching the VOD. It would be nice if this "time remaining" was continuously updated so you could seamlessly watch the stream on a delay (currently you have to refresh to get more of the video once you reach the end).

  7. While I am watching an old broadcast, usually the day or two after it happened, I want to catch up on a few things. I do not watch the entire thing, but usually skip along to key moments. I would appreciate a few different ways to know where to skip along the time track on bottom. For example, if there were markings along the bar that showed where clips were taken. This would let watchers know that something "big" happened there and worth stopping there along the skip. A "Next Clip" button with this could let the user skip along…

  8. In my twitch livestreams I often play multiple games.
    Afterwards I exported the whole VOD to Youtube and split the content in multiple videos by using the Youtube Video Editor; with that I was able to sort the content according to the game in playlists and categories, because on Youtube one video can only be categorized in one category/game.

    Youtube now removed the feature to "split videos to new videos" 😐

    "No one used that and you can still easily download, split and reupload the Videos", Youtube says. 🙄
    That is BS, because Download is limited to 720p and Youtube…

  9. In this most recent age the unpublish feature is really helpful but in order to clip, highlight and even watch the VOD you have to publish it first. Which defeats the purpose

  10. Every streamer runs into a few issues with trolls. Half of the time with trolls or DMCA content, users have to completely delete VODs. Well, unlike Twitch but on other platforms you're able to edit "VODs" a lot more with a lot more detail. That included to making parts quiet, to louder. Replacing or adding music to the vod, or even bluring or blocking unsafe content for the vod and even removing DMCA content from the vod without removing your whole vod to follow through with DMCA.

    These systems have been around for ages and I'm completely flabbergasted about twitch's…

  11. I love playing back recent broadcasts from music streamers and want to "like" them so I know and they know that their broadcast was viewed and enjoyed. I'm already following them, but giving kudos for a recent broadcast would be really nice to have.

  12. Often, streamers have a few minutes of "starting soon" to let viewers join the channel before the actual content starts. This makes sense for live viewers, but becomes frustrating when watching VODs, as the viewer has to click around to find where the actual content starts.

    It would be very helpful if we could trim from the start (and end) of VODs to improve the viewers' experience.

  13. For live videos and vods i tend to put twitch on when going to sleep. A way of setting a timer which pauses the stream would be very helpful so you can continue watching the following day and it's easier to find where you were.

  14. Have markers on the progress bar for VODs showing when in the stream the Category and/or game was switched.

  15. The ability to select multiple videos/highlights/VODS from the Video Producer and export them to YouTube all at once.

    This will save time and makes things easier for users.

  16. When streamers get muted in a VOD, it is really difficult to tell what exactly got the audio muted. If streamers could get information on what they got muted for, they could remove it from a playlist so it doesn't happen again in the future. A good example of this is how I was playing music from a supposed non-copyright playlist, but my audio is muted because of 1-2 songs throughout the VOD. I have no way of telling what those songs are and can't remove them.

  17. I would love a skip 30 seconds forward/backwards button to the vod viewer. could be 15 seconds. It is often difficult to scrub back and forth when the vod length is very long.

  18. When exporting vods to YT, it would be really nice if we could add a thumbnail to the vod like we would if we were on YouTube and if the export function could flag if there are problems with your videos (i.e. this video has < or > in it, so it won't export). It's frustrating trying to carry over past vods then having to do extra steps when the bulk of the functionality already exists, and even more frustrating when I go to export, and get an email an hour later saying 'oh sorry, your export failed' with no…

  19. A feature for creators which allows for any number of options for expiring broadcasts, namely an automatic exporting system to Youtube. In short, an option to have a VOD export to Youtube on its own. We already have the option to set the privacy of a video export to either public or private, even edit the description, so keeping that option seems reasonable.
    Not to speak for everyone, but a large number of streamers have dealt with problems regarding expired broadcasts that, according to some over at Twitch, may or may not be lost to the void.
    Adding this feature…

  20. Please add the "Video preview" feature when hovering through video timeline/progress bar in all "Pasts Broadcasts", "Videos", and "Clips".

    However, It's not necessary to implement this feature in "Live" videos.

    It will help a lot to see the video interesting point instead of watching through the whole video which some streamers take 3-4 hours or longer.

    Best regards,
