  1. Adding a parameter to let us request clips by views (by default) or by creation time. (And so we can easily get the last clip and also classify clips by date)

  2. So you know that one streamer you like to watch that's full time and divides him or her self between more than one game / category and goes 8+ hours each day and has tons of people clipping the channel's content?
    I personally think it's a bit frustrating to go digging through their dozens / hundreds of clips just to find that one you are looking for from such a long time ago. I think it would be a great addition if twitch allowed us more filters than just sorting by time created (by default, 24 hours, 7 days, 30…

  3. It would be really nice if you could rewind a stream up to the point it started. You could make this a feature only usable with streams that have their vods saved, as it could just access the vod and rewind, then you could fast forward all the way back up the live point. I believe youtube has a feature exactly like this for their live streams, though I prefer twitch, this feature makes watching streams on youtube very appealing.

  4. I have hundreds of clips that were made when art streams were categorized as 'Creative'. Even after the tag was changed to 'Art', the tag on the previously made clips remained as 'Creative'. And so now when I try to sort by 'Art', it only brings results starting from 5 months ago, and absolutely none of the clips created before that during the 'Creative' period. Additionally, if I try to sort by 'Creative', it either automatically changes the search to 'Art', or it doesn't even register as a game so I'm unable to hit enter.
    So basically, there's no way…

  5. Sometimes there's no point in creating highlights because other people have already created awesome clips. It would be really nice to be able to add clips to collections, so relevant videos, whether highlight or clip, can be viewed together.

  6. I work for a Gaming News organization and we stream 6-7 days a week and have 2 people running our rerun. Sometimes the order gets screwed up or someone forgot to add a video in the line up and its not possible to add or subtract from the rerun when its playing. Being able to move things around (obviously no the video being played) but ability to change on the go would be very valuable to my job in particular.

  7. A few more sort Options Like "Form new to old" and "sort by Game" maybe an Option to search Clips by title and Game. When a Streamer does have many Clips than its hard to find an older Not so popular Clip

  8. Broadcast date of past videos used to be shown with each video, but I can no longer find any date information. I have no clue when past videos I watch are from.

  9. This may have an opt in feature or moderate clips you are tagged in before allowing the tag so as not to be flooded by clips you aren't in or don't want on your channel or to be tagged in.

  10. Summary:

    If you clip a video, you can make a Collection for it.
    A streamer can make Collections of other users clips of their channel.
    Other user’s Collections of streamers should be visible on both Streamer and Clippers channel.

    A great feature which could be integrated could be to allow Clips to be put into a Collection. This would allow the Streamer to pick out favourites from their community clips and put them into a Collection for others to watch.

    Ie, sometimes someone makes a fantastic clip from a VoD that never got high views/was shared but might be hilarious…

  11. Channel Mods should be able to delete clips created by other non mod viewers.
    This could help out to delete clips which are inappropriate to the context or content created by the broadcaster

  12. Whenever someone wants to watch VODs they can't enjoy the duel screen experience properly of popout twitch chat. Theather mode forces you to have the chat next to the video AND on the same monitor. Please let us pop out the chat on VODs.

    Please give us VODboys some love.

  13. Hey, I watch alot of past broadcasts and I don't quite understand why we're all being forced to use this option. It might be good with short videos like on other platforms, but on here it's more painfull than useful.

    Me and probably many other people watch them while going to sleep. So If you wake up and there are random streams marked (auto play plays random pb's for me), it's hard to remember what you actually watched.
    I also noticed that it doesn't always shows what's going to be played next https://gyazo.com/838517e196f50c6d757a3f6d9b1a9a3d .

    I really hope you implement this…

  14. I'm just uploading a single Video with just 1.9 GB. Upload is 5 times slower than to youtube. It's rediculous slow.

    I have a stable 10 mBit-Upload connection. Twitch jumps between 2000 and 9000 and every 3-4 Minutes there is a buffer of 5 minutes, where simply nothing happens.

    Fix it. It's really awkward that your upload is slower than on other third party sites like vid.me.

  15. On youtube you can edit the videos AFTER it is uploaded.

    would be awesome if you could take you older highlights on twitch and cut them a little bit shorter if you dont like the ending or something.

    and if you could mute some parts of the highlights by yourself which you dont like. (maybe there was some awful sound in the background or something)

  16. Twitch recently changed the format for clips and video manager and we noticed that the "Created by" column has been removed from the clips manager... Please bring it back. It was a very useful tool for us because we have so many people in our group and the "created by" column helped us know who was clipping what broadcasts. It's gone now and we want it back.

  17. 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! :)

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. We need to be able to change the game in the making of clips and of already made ones. Right now there is no way to change choice of game when making a clip. When making one it takes one game from the main video. So for me and all of the other streamers who play multiple games during one stream, it therefore will show the wrong game in the clips we make from our videos. It deceive our viewers, as well as severely decrease our chance of new people finding our clips.
