  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Ability to move the mini player window around and resize it when you scroll down the screen. It's current positioning gets in the way of some panels.

  4. Some streamers currently feel that there isn't enough incentive for people to sub. I think that streamers should be able to have a stream that is only visible to subs, similar to the sub-only feature for VoDs. This could allow creators to reward their subs for supporting them and to give non-subs more incentive to sub. I understand that some streamers might begin to only do sub-only streams, but I think that should be their decision, and that they will almost certainly lose viewers by doing so. They need to decide whether or not the few gained subs would be…

  5. This is more specific than adding a fancy video editor. The main issue is whether to delete short stream saves when your server starts lagging and you quit the stream and search for a new one. If we could combine them into one video then at least we could save this content and attach it to a larger save, so we wouldn't lose the continuity.

    I realize that you can download both vids and stitch 'em together and reupload them, but this is not the point.

    I don't really think we need a video studio but it would be nice…

  6. could you change, cinema mode so that it becomes fullscreen with chat instead on having top and bottom bar visible. It kind of ruins the whole cinema feeling.

  7. Add a snooze feature, like most TVs have. I, like many people, fall asleep watching a twitch channel at times, but in many areas of the world like South Africa, we have to watch our data usage.

    I'm not suggesting that it be automatic but rather just a Snooze Timer I can set that will stop the stream. Something like 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, etc.

  8. 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.

  9. Some streamers have to delete a whole VOD just because of something that breaks TOS or because they leak something.

    Maybe a command that the broadcaster can type in his chat to censor the last couple of minutes of the vod making it impossible to be clipped or re watched.
    For Example:
    a stream leaks his address.
    he can type something like /VC5 and can blackout the last 5 mins of his vod and any clips created within that time rather then go offline and delete the whole thing.

    Dont know if such a thing is possible but it would…

  10. I've been thinking about this for a bit, and would love to spitball the idea with someone.

    Could it be an idea to enable streamers to make a custom thumbnail for their streams, then have it preview when you hover over said stream.

    That way, it would allow people to showcase special things about their streams that make it more interesting.

    For instance, I see a lot of competitive players of a bunch of different games using a title like "800+ wins" or "3000 ELO" - So with the custom thumbnails, they could showcase that, and if the viewers were…

  11. YouTube's largest fail is that fact that they do not have a simple desktop app for the people who upload a ton of content. This app features should contain the ability to put in the information about each video. If you loose connection or site goes down there should be a "resume" button to continue the upload. Make it easier on the user & this and it will encourage everyone to upload more. aka a "Desktop Upload Manager app". Keep hitting those home runs Twitch! :)

  12. Dear Twitch Staff,

    I thought it would be a nice idea if there was a possibility to have a Cam Window which twitch users themselves can move throughout the screen, which the streamer can apply as their cam capturing device. Don't know if this is something that's easy to create, would be a nice application though.

    Kind Regards, Zephioria

  14. I think, it would be help to search clips on a channel, if there will be a search field on clips page.
    Another idea, the creator of the clip can add tags to clip, and anybody can find them.

  15. 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.

  16. Let twitch auto change game name (and maybe title) based on what it was set on stream or info entered for uploaded videos. Vodcasts with 10th of games in one section creates mess

  17. Twitch, so far I'm loving the overall experience, and I think you guys do a tremendous job of listening to your community and incorporating said community feedback.

    That said, there is one aspect of Twitch that bothers me right now.

    I'm a gamer, and play a variety of games, namely first-person-shooters and open-world games. I like to organize all my game uploads into collections by game title. It would be nice if I could upload thumbnails featuring the game art for each collection.

    Can we please get thumbnail support for collections, allowing us to add some personality to our collections?…

  18. The ability to have closed captioned and subtitled videos. Twitch wouldn't need to have a closed captioning system, just the option to upload a CC file (i.e SubRip, SubViewer, RealText, etc) and preferably to be able to maintain the more advanced files' caption positioning.

  19. For now, the video section of a channel only highlight the latest ones or show them all depending on some filters.

    What about having a search engine? In my case, I'm syncing over 1700 videos from a Youtube channel et on the frontend or backend of the channel there's no way to search for a specific video to, for example, modify things, check stats, etc.

    Thanks for your attention

  20. I think as with all video uploading sites, Twitch could benefit from likes, dislikes or maybe the old five star rating system. Something to help see what people like and don't like.
