  1. There are currently whispers that Twitch is planning to remove the rerun feature. I can provide a reasonable case why this feature should remain. I'm sure there are many communities who utilise this feature to come together and watch broadcasts outside of their time-zone, and have seen as much from twitter. I, and many others, view reruns for a different reason. We're a part of Reckful's community, many in our community only interact in chat during the reruns his Editors put on for us from time to time.

    Not only do these reruns facilitate us to remember and celebrate the…

  2. Live vs Reruns

    i think it should be made cleared when a chanel is on a rerun, it shouldn't say "LIVE"
    A way that i think they could help new streamers, or lew viewercount streamers overall is to have two subcategories, Live and Reruns.
    this would let streamers that are live have a chance to grow.

    on the asmr category it's getting out of hands the amount of reruns, youtubecompilations and bots. and we can't do anything about it too. i've reported multiple channels but they are still there, even getting into front page. it's sad to see how the…

  3. Can we please list pre-recorded content as re runs, or create a new catagory as it's wrong to list is as Live, it's doing a diservice to the streamers who make the effort to sit in front of their PC's broadcasting live content and it's killing their channels, especially the ASMR catagory.

  4. Hello, now, in 2022, there is a huge problem in the asmr category, 70% of streamers began to issue pre-recorded videos for real ones and play them for 40 hours, I think it is forbidden to do this! It became difficult for a real streamer to stream because the category is full of records, please stop streaming the recording and pass them off as a real stream.

  5. I would like the idea to schedule reruns to start at specific times. It would make it easier for creators who know they are going to be away from home (for example, at TwitchCon) or when managers of their dashboard can't start a rerun due to other obligations (for example, also at TwitchCon). The old premier feature allowed you to schedule uploaded content, a similar time system could be implemented for scheduling the current rerun feature.
    Could add two buttons to the existing rerun interface:
    - Start the rerun queue later. [Insert Drop-down list for date/time]
    - Start Rerun Now!

  6. Doing daily reruns is a great way to grow. However, sending out notifications daily for reruns will make people turn off their notifications. Which is why this change is important.

  7. The new dashboard doesn't allow to edit the list of reruns while streaming. Therefore, I need to completely stop my rerun, waste some minutes preparing the new list and then start the rerun again. The previous dashboard didn't lock up the rerun list while streaming.

  8. When I travel, I expect that I'm not engaging my audience and that I'll lose viewers/subs/etc. The rerun functionality right now is a way to give viewers a reason to hang out while watching content - but it's too hard to do. Someone has to manually manage each days list of videos, manually start it, manually start it, and frequently communicate in chat that it's not in fact a live stream.

    Here's how I believe it'd be solved and would increase streamer quality of life:

    1) Allow the scheduled start and stop of Re-Run playlists.

    2) When scheduling the stop,…

  9. when you go to the "live" section there are some "repetitions" running, this make no sense,

    maybe them can have its own category as "repetition"

  10. It feels like an oversight that chat replays aren't visible during reruns! My viewers have repeatedly pointed out that it's weird to watch a streamer talk with and react to a chat that isn't there.

    It would be great to have the chat replay as a toggleable button in the chat window, with old replayed chat messages colored grey, so viewers could easily distinguish between the chat replay and the current live chat!

  11. a saved log of the chat during re-runs, a lot of people don't seem to notice it's a re-run and comment in chat anyway, unless I have the browser open I don't see the response, would like to look through to see if there are people to respond to or block

  12. It can confuse viewers that step away for the end of a stream when they come back and a rerun has started, as they have none of the UI saying that a rerun has started. Thanks! <3

  14. There are many issues with reruns that I've inquired about, but most notably, only uploads and past broadcasts can be added to the rerun queue. I have a considerable library of high profile events, and while reruns are very useful, the library is now extremely limited unless I reupload highlights. This is extremely tedious and user unfriendly when the files are gigantic and already exist on the server. Please flick the switch and restore this feature.

    Thanks,
    KombatNetwork Staff

  15. I would like to be able to add videos as the Rerun is going, so I don't have to stop the queue and interrupt the stream. This was possible when it was the Vodcast feature. In addition, being able to rearrange the order. You can click any video in the queue and start fresh from that point, so it should be possible to move them around and confirm the new order at the very least. Sometimes I run an event, or a marathon of a specific game, but the viewers want to see more of a specific game. Being able…

  16. I cannot find where to start a rerun now that the new changes have been implemented. The dashboard spot got removed and it's not in the list anymore to re-add it to the dashboard. The only trace of reruns I can find is the new check box in the stream info manager.

  17. I think something should be done with reruns, like the feature to add overlays on top of it for follows or a chat box, and maybe some game overlay or something to make it not just feel like a VOD with a chatbox

  18. In both the list of suggested streamers and the new "top screen half preview" thing you started doing the past week, the streamers that are showing reruns are shown as "Live" rather than "Rerun". Can the tag be changed to filter for both states?

  19. Ban reruns.

    Seriously, this is the most dishonest thing I ever saw. People who stream 3, 4 hours a day and keeps restreaming reruns over and over for hours and hours. This is really dishonest to people who want to start streaming because reruns are not LIVE and they keep milking viewers and subs with no effort at all, which makes really really hard to grow as streamer if you have to compete with people with +2k subs restreams. Also, what is up with the "i'm sleeping" stuff? I hope twitch can really support people who want to "WORK" as…

  20. It would be helpful for channels especially NON-Affiliates who want to rebroadcast either their past broadcast stream to bring in more people to the channel or even rebroadcast highlighted content. It would expand the viewership of people because sometimes you can have a rerun playing for a different time-zone than when you stream. so if you would allow NON-Affiliated channels to be allowed the rerun feature again
