  1. I request that the 100 collection limit be removed or raised.

    A channel can have an infinite amount of videos uploaded / highlighted / clipped, but can only organise them into 100 playlists. Once you've played 100+ games, you're out of luck.

    For variety streamers who play many different games and would like their content to be accessible and organised, this limit has forced alternative options (like off-site re-uploading / messy collection systems).

    I would like to keep my community ON Twitch, and I would like ALL content that I've made remain in one place, organised, rather than providing various…

  2. We are a cognitive neuroscience lab studying how video games can promote improved reading and attentional ability. The goal of our research is to determine what qualities of video games are most beneficial to reading and attentional ability, so that game developers and clinicians can work together to design therapeutic games to help individuals with reading or attentional disorders, such as dyslexia.
    As part of this research we analyse gameplay videos of people playing various video games to determine which characteristics of video games are most beneficial to reading and attentional ability. Your platform is an excellent source of public…

  4. When a stream lags all viewers wonder if they lost connection, or did stream F. Show a different spinner for each of these cases

  5. It would be nice if you could see the stream in a little frame when hovering over the streamers channel on the sidebar

  6. Currently, the only option for transcoding regardless of a streamer's own setup, is to pray you're lucky.

    This harms a ton of smaller streamers, viewers, and Twitch Profits alike. It forces streamers to prioritise lower quality, which wards off viewers in more economically sound positions in order to get the viewers required to get noticed by the clearly viewer driven promotion algorithm. This is highly self-contradicting, leading to the only chance for twitch to maximise profit being streamers downprioritising the users that would be the most likely to contribute large amounts.

    Opensourcing already existing transcoding service together with something like…

  7. I know that you can edit clips 24 hours after creating them but a really helpful tool would be to be able to edit them always. Especially because you can use 1Min for a clip and a clip by default only uses 30sec

  8. The ability to raid a fellow streamer and have your cam feed displayed on their channel. Obviously with the raided streamer being notified the the “raider wants to share their cam” which can be accepted or denied or auto set to only allow cam raids from those you know or over a certain number of viewers raiding only visible for a certain amount of time etc. This would be a great benefit to introduce the streamers to not only each other but other viewers too. So much better than the raider being restricted to chat only. Thanks

  9. When you start your stream we all know that during peak hours not everyone will get transcoding (720p-460p-360p-160p). As far as I currently understand the rule, you will get transcoding if there is a channel available with partners getting priority. So what I and some others do when we don't get transcoding is to reboot your stream a few times till you get it. This however can sometimes take 4 to 7 reboots.

    So if you have to reboot your stream for 4 to 7 times you end up having 4 to 7 vods of 10~20 sec long. Now I…

  11. It's known that the pitch-bending of the low latency mode sounds horrible when watching music, but is great for other kinds of streams to keep viewers as close to real-time as possible.

    Instead of just "on" or "off", low latency mode could have 3 options: "always off", "always on", or "on unless watching a stream from the music category"

  12. Lock clips so you don't accidentally delete them while you are deleting the clips you accidentally made by accidentally clicking the clip icon when trying to go to theatre mode or maximize the player.

  13. Sick idea for you Twitch. Could we get a "90 Day" selection when looking at clips. I would love to be able to see recent clips from the past few months instead of having to scroll through "All" of my clips from years back to find recent ones.

    This would help creators find their recent content to use other places like in Discord, Twitter, or even making a video for a recruitment challenge a big team is having. Just a thought and I think a lot of creators including myself would love having this option to help them.

  14. I'd like to eventually do a live sportscast of live miniature golf, and I would like a frame advance/retreat feature. I know the computer provides the zoom features.

    I need to analyze the previous putt if the difference between a double putt and a botched single putt is very big.

    Also other live "body sports" and human referred e-sports might need it.

  15. Add a button to the interface labelled "What have I missed?" that when clicked will show a couple of minutes of random video from the current (or previous) live stream so that people who are late to the broadcast can catch up on what has happened before they got into the stream.

  16. when watching suggested clips from users i follow, the auto play feature will periodically choose a clip with high view count to play next. In some cases, these clips come from users on my block list, or channels I've indicated as "don't recommend channel" on suggested streams. Integration of these lists into suggested clips algorithms would be nice.

  17. If users exit the clip editor without selecting "Publish", a clip with the stream title is still saved. These clips create clutter and detract from browsing all channel clips. Ideally these unintended clips should not be saved/posted.

  18. Hello, there is an idea with a choice of audio streams. In Dota2, commentators muffle the sound. It would be great if there were 2 threads with no commentators. The fact is that you can watch the stream with music. With two audio streams, you could watch the stream accompanied by music.

    In the twitch player settings, add a choice of audio streams.

  19. When looking at your list of VODs to see which you want to carve up into smaller highlights, currently it lists the original air date and how many days remain before it auto-expires.

    However if you are already on the last day before the VOD expires, you may think that there is more time left before it expires than is actually the case.

    If we could see the time listed (in your local/set time zone) that the VOD will auto-delete, Or the number of hours/mins on that final day then we could schedule editing time much better!

  20. Add a search and filter by game in video producer.

    Here is a example of what I am looking for as a feature -> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/677684879986786365/716636928514195516/Video-search.jpg

    Reason for Feature request:
    When you have thousands of Highlights, its very difficult to scroll thru the provided section to find certain highlights from years ago.
