  2. On the event of a Stream restarting or even needing to switch OBS settings, it’d be nice to be able to let Twitch know that “this stream is part of the previous one that ended (within a certain amount of time) ago.” I think twitch has an automatic version of this, but in the oddball case of it marking two back to back streams as separate, it’d be nice to merge them.
    Why? - During stream fails you don’t have to worry about starting a new “record” on your channel; Viewers of VODS won’t have to switch; Stream Schedule Page…

  3. I want to watch multiple streamers and hear them without the gameplay sounds overlapping so that I have no idea what's happening in any of them. I just want to focus mainly on one, but still hear the other streamers talk.

  4. I would like a way to watch multiple streams at the same time, kind of like multitwitch.
    Twitch has gone out of its way to break sites like that so why not do it instead.

  5. As a twitch user that does not have the best of internet, it's extremely frustrating to not be able to support your friends who have affiliate because their streams have no quality options besides their source selection.

  6. Disable AUTO on video player. Even if you choose 720p after sometime it switches back to auto and freezes the stream.

  7. I would really love to be able to decide how loud the streamers voice and the streamers game is for me.
    Normally Streamers have to decide how loud everything together is.
    Iam not sure if this is possible, but i guess you can have different channels on one audio stream, why not make one for the game and one for voice.
    Then it could be possible for the viewer to decide how loud he wants to hear these channels.
    Thank you :)

  8. I think the navigation of vods is pretty tedious. It would greatly benefit from a more user friendly interaction. The Android app has buttons to revert 10 seconds or skip 30 seconds. This is great, however these buttons aren't accessible enough due to being to small. As Fitts's UI design Law teaches us, the accessibility can be increased by increasing the size of the button. The way YouTube does it is splendid. The left half of the screen is used to navigate backwards and the right to navigate forwards. Then, by simply double tapping in the respective region the user…

  9. I think it would be amazing to have a snappy instant replay option whereby, with the touch of a button we could have a pop-up overlay which could be set to play back the last 5-15 seconds (or however much time deemed optimal by the community) of action with playback control.

    Clips are a great feature and definitely have their place like when a streamer asks us to clip something or we just want to highlight and share something with chat, but they do take us away from live action by opening in a new tab.

    Most of the time…

  11. I have a Galaxy S8 and it has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. With apps such as YouTube and Netflix, I have the option to make the video a fullscreen video instead of the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, Twitch does not allow this. This would not be a problem except for the fact that many devices have OLED screens. Because the 16:9 aspect ratio does not use the full screen, pixels on either side are left turned off. Over time, this leads to reverse burn in and color issues with the screen as the pixels in use will degrade faster…

  12. Watching streams that are not live can be a bit of a pain at times. It’d be nice to feature options such as “jump to” icons like 15 second forward or 15 second backwards. There is also currently a bug whee after pausing a replay stream, the audio cuts out.

  13. With the upcoming feature of local transcoding via OBS, I have a simple request, two fold:

    1. Allow the user to still manage custom settings for quality. The mention of "autoconfig wizard" is worrying, since I work hard to do custom encoding settings to make streams look better for my content.

    2. Allow high bitrate 1080p streams. 1080p still has issues with 6 Mbps and H264. If we are going to have 1440p or 4K streams that are going to probably push 20-30+ Mbps, it would be great to have an option of a "High Bitrate 1080p" stream. It would be the…

  14. I would love to be able to minimize/maximize the different channel categories, specifically the Recommended Channels bunch of channels. I'd rather see more of my followed channels.

  15. As someone who enjoys watching Twitch streams before bedtime, I've encountered the frustration of waking up hours later, only to find that my battery has run out and a different stream is still running due to a raid.

    I wanted a feature that lets me set a timer for the stream to stop playing after a chosen duration, ensuring a peaceful night's sleep without waking up to unintended streams.

  16. Hey Twitch Staff,
    I created something that could completely change YouTube. I created a website called Sivantis.com that is a simple way for streamers to pay content creators for the videos they react to on YouTube I made a 15 minute YouTube video (sorry in advance for the audio) explaining how it works. In this video you will see how it could benefit monetization on Twitch as well.
    Thanks for your time.

  18. It would be a great feature to add for the viewers to be able to control the volume at which we can individually hear the streamers separately from the streaming content. While I think it's important that they be able to monetize their streams in the way they see fit, sometimes I just want to watch the content without hearing the streamers. Especially because their volumes are all different and I want the option to control how much of them I hear versus the gameplay.

  19. Please make it an option to NOT have vods being shown in the channel banner but instead in the MIDDLE of the page. It is annoying having the video obstructing the artwork of the channel.

  20. you could add translated subtitles so like for example im watching a french stream on baldi's basics but i don't speak french i speak english so it would be cool if there were autogenerated subtitles if you dont speak that language and the only reason im watching a french stream is because it is the only baldi's basics stream
