  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. Every streamer's volume is a bit different.

    Create a new option to allow the system to retrieve the last volume used for a given channel.

    When viewing a new streamer just keep the volume as is.

  10. Please, put the bar to increase and decrease the volume using the mouse scroll without having to click.
    This avoids the need to click and drag to adjust the volume.
    On youtube it works like this and makes it very easy when you need to change the volume.

  11. If streamer has the option to publish VODs, we need to be able to play VODs which are currently in progress without stopping at the end of the progress bar.

    This will help viewers and moderators watch a cleaner near real-time stream of the VOD, using the streamer selected VOD Track layers in OBS.

    This can be adjusted by the streamer so the VOD contains only the game audio and not the streamer yelling their lungs out, Text-To-Speech, music, or alerts..

  12. I'd love an option in Advanced Video Settings to disable resizing of the video player, so it stays at the resolution I selected and can instead resize the window around it (or adjust the width of chat). The image clarity when viewing at the set resolution (even more if it's the source resolution) is a lot better than whatever random size fits in the space the player has with the browser full screen or however big it is when it's not full screen.

  13. I've been a twitch viewer since the site started, one thing that occurred to me is that I'd like a completely hands off way to watch twitch, which is sort of has now with hosting and when one streamer ends they can shift you to another streamer, it's one of the best things about twitch imo.

    I want to expand on that, I want to be able to personally rate streamers I'm following and opt out of hosting and raiding and instead switch to my preferred next streamer when the stream I'm watching ends, so that I never have to…

  15. It's always fun to re-watch your favorite streamer's reaction to a comment of yours. However, when viewing recent broadcasts, there is no convenient way to JUMP between YOUR comments in the seekbar. The user needs to skim through the seekbar and manually find their comments by trial and error.

  17. So there is already a request of Similar nature that got rejected. I believe it was because of the wording in their request. So I had this idea.

    The TLDR of it is that there should be a setting that allows you to enable or disable watching a Stream on one or 2 Monitors. On one Monitor you watch the Game or Whatever is happening and on the other, you have the Facecam of the given Streamer. I believe this would make for a better watching experience overall. Since most Streamers have good Facecams anyways it's a shame that that…

  18. I'm autistic and the audio for some games that I really like watching can be extremely overstimulating due to the players moving the camera around so much, causing the audio to jump from ear to ear in my headset. Both for people like myself, and for people who are hard of hearing in one ear, it would be extremely helpful for there to be an easy way to turn off stereo audio, making it a mono output.

  19. Basically the idea is top allow the streamer to upload one long video or several short videos that would be used as a placeholder when the streamer is having connection issues. That way the awkward silence for when their connection falters and the lame "Stream Having Issues" could be replaced with actual content to keep viewers around while they wait for the issues to stop.

    Additionally, I'd propose so:
    Partners would get a few more long videos for "Stream Issues" placeholder, as well as considerably more short videos.

    Said videos must NOT be set as "Subscriber Only".

    Their visibility within…

  20. Allow the customer to ignore TTS from certain users or all TTS in a given channel. It takes away from the user experience to have to deal with TTS spam. I'd like to watch and listen to the game and creator, not the annoying TTS spam.
