  1. It would be amazing if you could broadcast directly from your phone using the twitch app into obs so you have your overlays alerts ect. While keeping out 3rd parties like Streamlabs from charging to keep your stream online instead you do that yourself ( I mean actually do it yourself ) using your preferred streaming software. While your connection might be intermittent the stream stays on and maybe has some type of overlay in the background while you're trying to reconnect. I myself really like doing IRL streaming though the only issue with having spotty coverage in some areas…

  2. Seems that the volume control no longer appears on offline streams.

    Please readd it

    Some people will wait for a streamer to go live, but have the volume "remembered" from a different streamer they watched last night and suddenly get blown out speakers

  3. I get that these broadcasters are featured and lots of people are watching them, but if they are going to show up on the home page, the volume should be muted.

    Or, leave it paused, or remove it.

  4. Twitch could have a subtitle feature for live content in English/Portuguese as we could watch it live in our native language or another language, as well as contribute to learning and fun at the same time.

  5. Add a button to the interface labelled "What have I missed?" that when clicked will show a couple of minutes of random video from the current (or previous) live stream so that people who are late to the broadcast can catch up on what has happened before they got into the stream.

  6. There's a major issue with how people interact with the clipping system. Clips are meant to be used to share moments of interest with others. That's not how it's being used a majority of the time. A majority of the time it's being used as a rewind button.

    This is bad because:
    - it creates more work for streamers to find clips to feature
    - it costs twitch a lot to store that data

    This is due to the lack of rewind feature and a common misconception that clips are not public until you name and publish them.

  7. Option to show “Latency to broadcaster” time in the corner Just like FPS counters in games. It’s a pain to always have to open Video Stats up to make sure I’m not 5sec behind. Also please fix the horrible lag every single time I go to @ someone or use emotes.

  8. Playing streams at 60fps leads to lots of short buffers and regular intrerruptions. Having an option to play 60fps streams at 30fps regardless of whether the streamer only offers the source, should be a feature.

  9. Dear Twitch team,

    Could you please add settings to the video player in the Twitch mobile app or web for mobile devices allowing user to increase video speed (1.25, 1.5, 2 times) of past broadcasts (VODs) as it is possible on the web for desktops?

    OR

    Problem on the web for desktops is that it is not possible to jump few seconds forward and backward in the video using tablet or mobile device as these devices do not have arrow keys. Could you add there into the video player an icon allowing the jump forward/backward on a "mouse" click or…

  10. Can we get Chapter Select as a standard feature across all the apps? It's currently only available on the website at the moment and it's such a useful feature.

  11. For times when you need to go to the restroom, get a phone call or anything really. Being able to catch up on what you've missed would be great I feel.

  12. I generally fall asleep watching somebody's past broadcasts and recently twitch added an auto-play feature that you cant turn off and for people who have limited bandwidth it makes it impossbile to do so anymore. So i was wondering if we could get an option to turn off auto-play.

  13. Sometimes I hop through a bunch of different streams and would like to go back but if the browser history doesn't have it, it can be impossible to find. It would be nice if Twitch had a list of the last 20 or so streamers you visited and you could pick from that list.

  14. Edit clips for vertical video formats and share to social media tiktok and reels (facebook and instagram)

    I noticed that this feature was included but only for youtube Shorts, but this integration for tiktok and reels from Facebook/instagram would be great

  16. I hate using Twitch because EVERY TIME I load the page, a video starts playing somewhere in the background, muted. I don't know if you're aware, but many users don't have unlimited internet bandwidth, so having a video start playing when I can't even hear it is just wasting my data. PLEASE stop doing this. I would love it if there was an option to disable autoplay entirely, but if that's not in the cards, then at least stop muting the audio! If I go to watch a VOD, I want it HEAR it in addition to seeing it. Forcing…

  17. In OBS Studio and Streamlabs OBS, the streamer is able to Stream on certain Audio Tracks, and Record on certain Audio Tracks. As more and more integration with the OBS' and Twitch comes alive, this should be something that can be done. To simply put it, as a Streamer, I could put my Microphone on Audio Track 1, my Gameplay on Audio Track 2, my Music on Audio Track 3, my Voice Comms on Audio Track 4, and my OBS Alerts on Audio Track 5. Then, in the Twitch Video Player, give the Viewer the option to select which of…

  18. I’ve noticed that lately all streamers have gotten addons that will disable double-click to fullscreen unless I disable the addon. This is actually extremely annoying, as you have to be pretty precise to hit the small full-screen button in the lower right, or I have to go and disable the addon every time. I never use it anyways, so maybe either enable doubleclick to fullscreen again, have the addon disabled by default (but I guess you have more stats of who are actually using it) or best of all, add some setting so I can disable it by default. It’s…
