  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Anlık İzlenme sayılarını gizleyebilme seçeneği sunulması gerekli. Küçük yayıncılar devasa rekabet ortamında anlık izlenme sayısının az olmasından dolayı onları keşfedecek olan diğer insanlardan taradından ön yargıyla karşılanıyor. Yayının az izlenmesini gören bir izleyici o yayına gelmek istemiyor. Eğer ki izlenme sayıları gizlenebilirse bu ön yargılar ortadan kalkar ve küçük yayıncılarım rekabet etme şansı, yayıncılıklarını gösterme olasılığı bir nebze dahi olsun artabilir. Çünkü istenidiğiniz kadar eğlenceli olun sizi istatisklere göre yargılıyorlar!

  8. Create a playback rate shortcut, like Youtube.

    For example, when you go to a Youtube video and press: "SHIFT + >", the playback rate increases, and when you press: "SHIFT + <", the playback rate decreases.

  9. For example, streamer mikey123 is at streamer janey789's house, or just participating in her stream. His followers don't have any way currently of knowing that he is there, unless they follow janey789 and see she is online. Showing him as 'online' and maybe something else like 'in another stream' would bring more of his followers to the stream, giving janey789 or whoever else more exposure.

  10. Similar to the new viewer chat window rules pop up; giving streamers the ability to have a new viewer about me pre-roll intro could be useful.

    Lots of times viewers aren't reading the bio a streamer takes a lot of time to craft. Giving the option to run a short video could elevate repeat questions.

  11. hello my name is nicolas i'm 15 years old i'm from brazil and i came to give a suggestion, i follow many streamers who play fps games and always had the problem of ghosting: the person who is on the opposing team can know where you are from your live, delay is a tool that makes it impossible to communicate well with the chat, so I came to give a suggestion: you could add, make a function with which the streamer could block a certain person from seeing your screen, because normally the person's nickname in the game is the…

  15. Currently, the only option for transcoding regardless of a streamer's own setup, is to pray you're lucky.

    This harms a ton of smaller streamers, viewers, and Twitch Profits alike. It forces streamers to prioritise lower quality, which wards off viewers in more economically sound positions in order to get the viewers required to get noticed by the clearly viewer driven promotion algorithm. This is highly self-contradicting, leading to the only chance for twitch to maximise profit being streamers downprioritising the users that would be the most likely to contribute large amounts.

    Opensourcing already existing transcoding service together with something like…

  17. It's known that the pitch-bending of the low latency mode sounds horrible when watching music, but is great for other kinds of streams to keep viewers as close to real-time as possible.

    Instead of just "on" or "off", low latency mode could have 3 options: "always off", "always on", or "on unless watching a stream from the music category"

  18. I'd like to eventually do a live sportscast of live miniature golf, and I would like a frame advance/retreat feature. I know the computer provides the zoom features.

    I need to analyze the previous putt if the difference between a double putt and a botched single putt is very big.

    Also other live "body sports" and human referred e-sports might need it.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
