  1. I’ve noticed that lately all streamers have gotten addons that will disable double-click to fullscreen unless I disable the addon. This is actually extremely annoying, as you have to be pretty precise to hit the small full-screen button in the lower right, or I have to go and disable the addon every time. I never use it anyways, so maybe either enable doubleclick to fullscreen again, have the addon disabled by default (but I guess you have more stats of who are actually using it) or best of all, add some setting so I can disable it by default. It’s…

  2. 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…

  3. When I travel, I expect that I'm not engaging my audience and that I'll lose viewers/subs/etc. The rerun functionality right now is a way to give viewers a reason to hang out while watching content - but it's too hard to do. Someone has to manually manage each days list of videos, manually start it, manually start it, and frequently communicate in chat that it's not in fact a live stream.

    Here's how I believe it'd be solved and would increase streamer quality of life:

    1) Allow the scheduled start and stop of Re-Run playlists.

    2) When scheduling the stop,…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. I would like to be able to add videos as the Rerun is going, so I don't have to stop the queue and interrupt the stream. This was possible when it was the Vodcast feature. In addition, being able to rearrange the order. You can click any video in the queue and start fresh from that point, so it should be possible to move them around and confirm the new order at the very least. Sometimes I run an event, or a marathon of a specific game, but the viewers want to see more of a specific game. Being able…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Sometimes there are clips out there with "Rude / Stupid / unchanged" names, but they might have some great content in it. Therefor it's probably the best if the streamer would be allowed to change titles of their clips.

  12. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  17. Place the clip button at the opposite side of the video frame than the other buttons. Most clips nowadays are a result of accidental clicks. Also, clips should be saved only if the user expressly confirms to save it.

  18. 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! :)

  19. I have a lot of funny clips of my channel made by viewers, It would be nice if I could add them to my Funny Moments collection, without having to manually make their clip into a highlight. I would like to give the person credit for making the clip.

  20. 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.
