  1. 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…

  2. Currently, if you have a link to a deleted VOD, there's no way to find who uploaded it. This is very annoying. Say you have an old saved tab with a VOD you were watching. You open it, and it's deleted. You have to guess based on the saved title (if you have it) of the tab who you were watching.

    A solution to this issue would be making deleted VOD pages contain the name of or redirect to the channel that uploaded them. Or alternatively just adding an optional (to not break existing links) param to the URL pattern…

  3. 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 ;)

  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. 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…

  6. Twitch, please stop automatically muting the last 2 seconds of each clip in the highlight tool. This is absurd, I have to make all clips longer so the audio isn't cut off at the end of the important part of the clip that I'm making, which makes the clips very awkward by ending with an extra section of unimportant content.

  7. When a streamer outputs their broadcast in 21:9 aspect ratio (3440x1440, 2560x1080etc) the thumbnail for the stream is stretched vertically to compensate for the thumbnail's forced 16:9 scale.

    A bug fix that automatically adds black bars horizontally across the top & bottom on thumbnails the same as twitch automatically does for the stream itself would be beneficial and not cause viewers to be mislead on someone's overall channel quality.

    Here's an example of the issue and a fix:

  8. We need a way to rerun our VODs. I don't want to use my encoders from my streaming software in order to play reruns. That becomes more and more complicated, especially to small and newer streamers on the platform.

  9. Hi Twitch! it would be awesome if we could pin our favorite clips to our Twitch pages, have tags on clips, and/or make searching for clips a better experience. The current means of searching/sorting clips by 24 hour, 7 day, 30 day or all time is very limiting and doesn't yield optimal search results. Searching for clips on the dashboard is also confusing and not user friendly. Clips are a nice short way for people to experience the channel offline if they don't want to scrub through a VOD.

    Yes, channel trailers are great but 60 seconds is limiting. Having…

  11. It would be very useful if you added a function to the twitch player that takes audio from the streamer as input and outputs subtiles in english. in my case for example i follow a few french streamers but don't know french that well yet and I'd really like to know what they're saying so I searched for browser extensions but couldn't find one that did the job so I'm asking you if you could implement this idea to the platform, thank you.

  12. 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!

  14. Instead of the purple circle that goes round to show the video is buffering, have a streamer uploaded image that displays instead. If you do this you can get rid of offline channel image on the player because people will be customed to using trailers.

    So yeah, a custom buferring image o the streamers' choice to replace purple circle.

  15. When I scroll through my library of clips, the thumbnail is too small to tell which clip it is and what is going on there. And it doesnt get bigger or smaller when I zoom my browser either.

  16. Please add functionality to mark clips safe from global delete, and make it persist across sessions. Using the select all box and unchecking individual boxes puts clips in danger first, and if you accidentally leave the page all selections are reset.

    I would love to be able to check my clips weekly, select the ones I want to mark safe, then use the delete all button for any I don't want to keep.

  17. Only other time I had trouble processing a highlight was when it had multiple segments across hours of a VOD; it was painful but I accepted it as a possible limitation. Unfortunately, now, even when I'm trying to highlight a 13-minute segment that has no cuts whatsoever, I get this "error processing" message. I've tried doing this multiple times - reopening the VOD to edit/highlight, restarting the PC, relogging in, same error message. I saw it was an option to have editors create highlights for me but for some reason I can't give anyone this role. My mods told me…

  18. When exporting a VOD to YouTube, it is broken up into segments if it is longer than 12 hours. This feature is broken in two ways.

    The major issue:
    It does not work. It splits into segments that are of length 12:00:01, which are abandoned by YouTube, and have to be deleted.

    The minor issue:
    The naming is wrong. A 2-part export will be named "part 0/2" and "part 1/2."

  19. 계속 시청 동영상을 삭제 하려면 그 동영상을 끝가지 봐야 삭제 할 수 있습니다. 그런데
    정기구독자 전용 동영상을 삭제 하려면 정기 구독을 하고 동영상을 끝까지 봐야 삭제 할수 있는데 실수로 잘 못 눌렀다가 좋아 하지도 않는 스트리머를 정기구독 까지 해서 동영상을 삭제 해야 할 필요가 있을까요? 너무 불편합니다.

    @. 그냥 시간 지나면 자동으로 삭제 될 수 있도록 하거나 설정에서 "계속 시청 동영상 삭제" 기능을 넣었으면 좋겠습니다.

    꼭 넣어주세요 트위치는 저의 인생이자 저를 지금 까지 살아갈수 있게 해주는 원동력 입니다. 사랑합니다.

  20. A ferramenta reprise me ajudava demais em sempre manter meu canal ativo e isso também poder resultar em mais anúncios sendo visto na plataforma com isso gerando receita para o criador e para a plataforma , porque fazer reprises em forma de RERUN é trabalhoso demais e com isso exigindo gasto em energia e até mesmo consumindo o PC GAMER do criador , então retorne com a ferramenta REPRISES e pense no lado do CRIADOR DE CONTEÚDO dentro da plataforma!!! Desde já agradeço a atenção!!
