  1. Stream snip3r no sniping! Stream snip3r no sniping!

    Idea: If there were an easy option to add a video delay easily during any part of the broadcast, it would prevent stream snipers from ruining the fun for everyone.

    In the Gaming Category especially it would be awesome if Creators had a way to easily add a +5 second delay.

    Reason: Whenever the streamer is being stream sniped it ruins the fun for the viewers. It also makes the streamer understandably frustrated and want to quit live streaming their favorite game.

    Creators might only want to game later in the broadcast…

  2. I wish viewership wasn’t a public thing. I wish it was something only the streamer/mods could see, if they wanted.

    No view counts on any channel. I believe this would provide more discoverability, limit trolls, open up more raiding opportunities and give other viewers the chance to go into channels that they wouldn't normally go to because they have "too many viewers". Plus, sponsors would have to look into how the streamer interacts with their community instead of basing sponsorships solely on viewership. If they want that information, they can always ask AFTER they realize they like your content.

  3. Streamers have the option of transmitting their scene and their webcam separately to twitch. so that viewers have the possibility (like the picture in picture function) to move the webcam in order not to miss anything of what is happening

  4. It would be amazing if you could broadcast directly from your phone using the twitch app into obs so you have your overlays alerts ect. While keeping out 3rd parties like Streamlabs from charging to keep your stream online instead you do that yourself ( I mean actually do it yourself ) using your preferred streaming software. While your connection might be intermittent the stream stays on and maybe has some type of overlay in the background while you're trying to reconnect. I myself really like doing IRL streaming though the only issue with having spotty coverage in some areas…

  5. New NVIDIA graphics cards now support the new AV1 codec, add streaming support in AV1, since you don't want to increase the bitrate, at least add a new codec that will improve the quality stream at the same bitrate!

  6. Hello! I would love it if there were a section where you could see Twitch Shorts (1080x1920 content). I would love it if there was also an interface that made it easy to convert clips/sections of the stream to Twitch Shorts. It would also provide another outlet for people on Mobile as they can see their favorite creators' content.

  7. I hate using Twitch because EVERY TIME I load the page, a video starts playing somewhere in the background, muted. I don't know if you're aware, but many users don't have unlimited internet bandwidth, so having a video start playing when I can't even hear it is just wasting my data. PLEASE stop doing this. I would love it if there was an option to disable autoplay entirely, but if that's not in the cards, then at least stop muting the audio! If I go to watch a VOD, I want it HEAR it in addition to seeing it. Forcing…

  8. By providing a L/R audio balance option, a single computer can play 2 streams at the same time by simply separating the speakers. Putting the slider in the player's advanced menu would keep it out of the way until its needed.
    As stream viewing becomes more popular, its just a matter of time before 2 streams want to be watched by viewers but only 1 audio card is available.
    Also, if it doesn't require extra processing, adding a mono option could help the auditory handicapped.
    Cheers!

  9. Hi, I have a great idea, which I miss a lot on twitch, and we had a playlist where you can save streams where something funny happened and can find out the stream and see what else happened, maybe clips too, but that would be a great idea and when the VOD is deactivated, the streams are hidden in the playlist and you can no longer click on them

  10. Button toggle option that moves chat to the bottom of the window, or to the side.

    When I split screen apps I have to change the size of the window to force the chat to the right and i can actually read chat history rather than when chat is below and you can only see like 5 lines of it. Just let me choose where the chat goes regardless of the size of the window.

  11. So that you can get back from the delay smoothly without losing what is being said or shown on the stream or watching with a 20s delay just so you don't miss what the streamer is saying.

  12. Create new editting tool that can edit stream timelien and have highlights in it. With this tool streamer can create highlights to streamed past video giving tittles of talked topics of one larger duration of video and smaller pinpoints when changing topic or larger area similiar to youtubes Timeline. This tool can be accessed by streamer and streamer can give rights to edit/highlight timeline to other users - some users have video editors but also great for smaller streamers. Effectively perfect for anyone wanting to quickly see highlights of past stream. This could create new kind of vod watching habits…

  15. I believe tournament broadcasting could be largely improved with a separate pop-up video source.

    For Example:
    -CS:GO Major stream, with a caster cam that can be moved around the video screen and placed where fit by the viewer, with the ability to make it larger or smaller.
    -This could also benefit streamers with face-cam.
    -Fan cams could be an optional features.

    I think this would be a great exclusive not seen anywhere else, and would promote increased E-Sport production quality.

  18. 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.

  19. Imagine being able to double click on the screen and be able to go 10 seconds back or forward, we're not living in 2012 after all, be like pornhub, youtube think of your customers. Now I double click and chat comes up, I scroll to the side and chat comes up it's not optimal and it's annoying hope you understand what I mean <3 ;)

  20. 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…
