  1. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a way to merge the chat of two streams and have both video feeds side by side or one above other?

    That way, friends can collaborate and get a more solid viewership.

    Of course, you will still be able to watch only on of the stream even though multistream is enabled.

    Please Twitch! Make this a feature!

  2. Select multiple channels option to watch (4 max) instead of using third party software or other web apps or sites.

  3. An option to turn off the "que" for another random stream when watching saved streams. It's annoying to be woken up in the middle of the night to a loud stream randomly playing after the one I started finished.

  5. I generally fall asleep watching somebody's past broadcasts and recently twitch added an auto-play feature that you cant turn off and for people who have limited bandwidth it makes it impossbile to do so anymore. So i was wondering if we could get an option to turn off auto-play.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. atm the description in the description-box is cut in the half of the length of the box. The text should dynamically fill the description box in the length.

  10. Making highlight clips for downloading from Past Broadcasts, but not publish clips on your video feed. Can download different clips and but them together as one to upload video section. (with video editing software/site video editor not needed)

  11. Give the viewer custom volume level options for individual things for the stream to then let them change it to his/her liking. NOT just one master volume option. I'm thinking more along the lines of: "This is one for the viewers, Give them more flexibility."

    If one viewer thinks the game-play/music/commentary is too low/high, they should be able to fix that without disturbing the other viewers or spamming the streamer to change a certain audio output level. (NOTE: This will only effect the viewer audio output. NOT the streamer/other viewers.)

    1. Game-play audio (Self explanatory, change game play audio level whilst…

  12. Sometimes we need to edit our videos before publishing it such as cut or add some scenes. But right now our only option is to upload after edited. An editor such as the one that YouTube uses will be great. We will be able to add background music, CC, subtitles, transition and things like that. And also community contribution of CC and subtitles too.

  13. Right now Twitch's interface makes uploaded videos almost invisible. In order to find uploaded videos, you either have to find them at the bottom of the search results or, when in a specific game, you need to go to a separate "uploaded" videos tab.

    While I do not want to suggest specifically stealing from Youtube, I think an interface redesign needs to be considered to make uploaded videos more visible. I think that the focus should be on what's live, but that there should still be quite a bit of visibility added to the uploaded videos in both search results…

    Agreed, we’re working to make discovery of uploaded videos much easier.

  14. Right now, the only ways of notifying your followers of an upload are through e-mail and channel feed. Not everyone wants to spam their followers e-mails (potentially causing them to drift away) and not everybody uses channel feed. There should be a proper dashboard that displays all the videos that have been recently uploaded from the broadcasters you follow, and only uploads. Currently, if you go to a channels videos, you have to specifically filter for "uploads," otherwise they're lost in the sea of 100's of VOD's and highlights. In this dashboard, there should also be discovery mechanisms. IE: Popular…

  15. Would be gread if we could pull more than one file to the upload field and then all the videos will be sequential uploaded.

    Thanks for the feedback, we understand bulk upload needs and are looking into requirements. How many videos do you think you will upload at a time, and how often will you upload multiple videos?

  16. Similar to how Dota 2 interface for watching live games, it would be helpful for users to be able to rewind couple of seconds during a live session of a stream to rewatch something they might have missed without having to wait for a vod.

  19. I often watch two or more streamers who host shows together on twitch. This means they will be talking on teamspeak and broadcasting this teamspeak conversation on each stream. This means you will have to mute one of both streamers if you want to watch both of em at the same time. If streamers could stream multiple audio channels, they could stream the teamspeak conversation on one track and their normal microphone/stream sounds on other tracks. Users could mute the teamspeak channel if they want to watch both streamers, and still hear whats going on if one streamer mutes himself…

  20. Audio only option for pc. I know that they have this option on the twitch app, and i would want to see this on pc as well. Sometimes 1080p 60fps and 720p 60fps streams (without quality options) can result in high temps for laptops. Not to mention that this benefits people who want to hear the stream in the background without having to load the video portion of the stream.
