  1. I love new feature that suggests you clips and streams. I can watch funny moments of my favorite streamers if I didn't catch them live.

    However, I'd suggest you maybe rework the way that clips are chosen. Sometimes they are not anything special, seems like they are just random clips which is discouraging me from watching more of them.

    Maybe if we were given some way to vote on clip if we liked it or no would reduce the amount of low quality clips.

  2. When a channel starts a Vodcast followers shouldn't get an e-mail notification saying the channel is live. There should at least be an option to disable Vodcast notifications.

  3. Have an option in the auto host section to not allow vodcasts to be hosted. If you want to manually host, fine. I also feel that vodcasts should be in their own category.

  5. Let twitch auto change game name (and maybe title) based on what it was set on stream or info entered for uploaded videos. Vodcasts with 10th of games in one section creates mess

  6. Twitch, so far I'm loving the overall experience, and I think you guys do a tremendous job of listening to your community and incorporating said community feedback.

    That said, there is one aspect of Twitch that bothers me right now.

    I'm a gamer, and play a variety of games, namely first-person-shooters and open-world games. I like to organize all my game uploads into collections by game title. It would be nice if I could upload thumbnails featuring the game art for each collection.

    Can we please get thumbnail support for collections, allowing us to add some personality to our collections?…

  8. I like the idea you can have collections on your channel, but I noticed you cannot set a custom thumbnail for a collection. I wish I could do that just like with Uploads.

  9. The ability to have closed captioned and subtitled videos. Twitch wouldn't need to have a closed captioning system, just the option to upload a CC file (i.e SubRip, SubViewer, RealText, etc) and preferably to be able to maintain the more advanced files' caption positioning.

  10. VODs and highlights are the only types of videos we can put into a playlist right now, why not include uploads?

  12. Right now 'Collections' are placed above all your recent streams, which is not ideal as recent streams are usually the first thing people look for.

    It would be great if we could have an automatic Recent Streams 'collection' that can be placed at the top of a streamer's Videos page (with all their other Collections beneath).

    It would look a lot neater!

    Cheers.

  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. Would there be a way to optimize the upload of videos from your end? It seems like both the Upload and Processing times of the new service seems greatly reduced. Also, not having a loading bar for the processing to take place is slightly irritating as someone who wants to use this feature.

  16. An option to turn off the "que" for another random stream when watching saved streams. It's annoying to be woken up in the middle of the night to a loud stream randomly playing after the one I started finished.

  18. Please add in RSS Feeds for easy syndication into blogs, twitter and other platforms.

    Create RSS Feeds for each of the following sections for channels:
    Past Broadcasts
    Highlight VODS
    Clips from your Channel
    Channel Feed Posts

    Another one that maybe very useful is the last 10 or 20 chat messages from your channel or vod playbacks.

  19. I generally fall asleep watching somebody's past broadcasts and recently twitch added an auto-play feature that you cant turn off and for people who have limited bandwidth it makes it impossbile to do so anymore. So i was wondering if we could get an option to turn off auto-play.

  20. A feature that could be able to attach specific clips that are either originally clipped or edited all together. This feature would be great to express content on a larger level then just one video at a time. It would save a lot scrolling for more content for the viewer/follower. Also, with this, you could input a "starred" feature that brings a specific video or videos to the top of your feed. This will allow this best content to be seen instead of tucked away when more content is added.
