  1. When i do a 12 hours stream, I often get the same questions.
    I would like to be able to send a video like you do with ads but with a custom video for a specific viewer.

  2. To avoid some leak and some troll, I want to selected a list of Twitch users who can see my live broadcast.
    So only those specials users can see it.
    Like a private room in zoom.

  4. I don't have the most stable internet so there are days where a stream will buffer quite a bit. This means that I am viewing the stream later than the rest of chat, and in order to catch back up I need to reload the entire page.

    I would like a button that refreshes just the stream in order to give the the most current stream.

    This would also help people who chose to pause the stream.

  5. It would be nice if the webplayer would adapt to streams other than 16: 9 aspect ratio. As I stream in a 21: 9 aspect ratio, I have black stripes that look bad and are unnecessary

  6. In the Android client, you can slide the left and right screens to control the volume and brightness respectively.

  7. Put a pause button and a close button on the tablet interface. the only way I can stop the stream is by minimising and swiping the video. Is annoying. Clicking a pause button or a close icon like I can on my PC would be very useful.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Allow for playback speed of .25x-2x or higher speed for past streams similar to YouTube videos. This will help viewers who are short on time and watch more videos in less time.

  12. When watching a replay of any Esport game, i.e LoL, you can take an educated guess of how many games have been played by the remaining time left. It would feel nice for a viewer to keep the excitement as if he/she was watching it live.

    I suggest hiding the time remaining bar on replays.

    Just my two cents, cheers
    Jason

  13. Would love to be able to set viewer permissions on different Video Sections.
    This way we can curate content for the public versus for followers or different sub tiers.
    This adds even more value to channel subs in a Patreon-ish fashion and empowers streamers to move away from platforms like YouTube.

  14. 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.

  15. Videos playbacks end at the moment the livestream was when you loaded the page. So if you're watching the video of a stream that is still going on and you reach the end of the video, it auto loads the next video event though the one you're watching still has more content if you just reload the page.
    It would be more user friendly if it just reloaded the video with the updated length when you reach the end.

  16. A lot of us VR Streamers prefer 1:1 format, it looks better on VR streams and it looks better for mobile device viewing too.

  17. 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.

  18. I like watching smaller streamers with around 20-50 average viewers because the chat is more interactive but most of the time it forces me to 1080p60fps which would be fine but when I try playing a game on with the stream on my second monitor, my game drops frames and stutters a lot. I don't see how it would cause any negative effects and it would be a nice feature that would improve my experience a lot.

  19. Right now VODs expire after 60 days. I would like to be able to enter a custom number of days between 1 and 60. (Those whose videos expire in 14 days could do 1 to 14.) I would like to have VODs enabled for my channel, but I don't want them present for the full 60 days. Thanks for the consideration!

  20. Hovering over a followed channel on the sidebar now shows the stream title AND still image preview of the stream. Some may like it but I find it too large and intrusive compared to the precursory, minimalist, title-only preview; would like option to disable/customize what pops up on hover.
