  1. I wish there was a way to change when your clips start and ends so you can pin point the exact thing you were trying to clip to share. Example: wanted to clip a moment in Elden Ring and instead ended up with a 30 second clip when I needed a 10 to 15 second clip.

  2. Hi,

    Your support said me that "From September 1, there will be a small change in the VOD retention periods. VODs will remain saved for 60 days for most partners as well as Prime and Turbo users. For affiliates and other streamers, VODs will remain saved for 7 days before being deleted."

    Why are you doing this ? To be affiliated takes time, a lot of time. You have to keep your spirits up and fight.

    There is nothing worse than having a page without vod when you come across a streamer. It's empty, it doesn't make you want to.

  3. As it stands today, the only way for anyone to actively see clips from a content creator on this site is either via the small section featured on the home page if you scroll down enough or by looking at the specific streamers profile. With how many clips, highlights and VODs exist on this platform, there should be a way for viewers to easily browse/consume that content without having to discover that creator while they're live.

    Although this is a broad request, essentially what I'm asking for is:

    • Landing page for highlights / VODs, with a way to search for…

  4. Please make it possible to create a clip within the Highlighter. It's much easiert to check for markers and create a clip from there. I use a CLIP Marker to notify me after the stream if something is worthy to clip. Would be much easier in the Highlighter.
    Otherwise I would need to open the stream and skip to the timestamp manually. Way more steps than in the Highligher.

  5. On the desktop web interface for creating clips, you cannot trim or move the start/end trim sliders on touch-only devices.

    Please make the input touch-friendly.

  6. As people can now edit their clips to fit in vertical shape these could either be uploaded to twitch and then being able to watch them via the app or website in a scrollable fashion akin to what tiktok is doing.

    Hashtags are already a thing and can be used to search like categories.

    This could make discoverability on twitch way better as viewing clips right now is just totally cumbersome.

    Could even just apply coordinates from the cutouts streamers are doing and applied in realtime to the clips.

    Just something to make clips way more impactful on twitch itself…

    Relevant Update  ·  Ana responded

    We recently announced the upcoming launch of the Twitch Discovery Feed: a scrollable feed in the Twitch app that shows users a personalized mix of Clips. 

    Before that launch happens, we’ll be running experiments with limited versions of the Discovery Feed to help test and improve our algorithms plus the overall experience. These early experiments do not reflect the final design or experience of the Discovery Feed. 

    We'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions on how to improve this experience as we build towards the bigger launch. Feedback can be left via https://link.twitch.tv/UVDiscoveryFeed - thank you!

  7. Currently there is nothing to delete a clip from the clip page (twitch.tv/clip/###) for editors of the channel

    So, actualy, if you want to delete it, you have to look at the sometimes approximate creation date and scroll in the dashboard's page of clips.

    When you have to delete a clip several months old on a big channel, it's a waste of time, it would take days to scroll and the page crash (RAM full) long before reaching the dates...
    And it cost you alot of ressources while we doomscroll and load thousand of clips to reach only one of…

  8. The clip editor has helped save some time, mostly with formatting, but I feel that it lacks some crucial factors. like some, I add custom graphics to the clips, one being a animated pop up of my channel name that I had created in after effects, its simple and that's all I add, with the occasional subtitle.

    currently as it stands, the formatting and instant upload to YouTube are the pros, but not being able to go further is what is currently holding this feature back from being even more useful

  9. I've just cancelled my last remaining Twitch subscription due to today's rollout of your mechanism to defeat tools like streamlink from working. In short, Twitch now requires an integrity check to pass for the playback of a stream, which can only be passed by web browser JS engines. Tools like streamlink which allowed viewing streams in native video players are blocked by this.

    There are a lot of excuses people can make on behalf of Twitch as to why they're doing this (and no, not because of viewbotting, that doesn't need to play back the video), but none of this…

  10. example: https://i.imgur.com/o3Fiwei.png

    Adding a sound waveform to the highlight tool would allow streamers to quickly find quieter moments of stream to edit out. This can let streamers make highlights more efficiently.

  11. Please change the default key bind for toggling the theater mode to t.

    Currently the default key bind is alt + t. This leads to some issues:

    • alt also toggles a feature of Firefox
    • Inconsistency to the youtube player, which uses just t

    This would make the theater mode also quicker to toggle, since only one key is needed

  12. Edit clips for vertical video formats and share to social media tiktok and reels (facebook and instagram)

    I noticed that this feature was included but only for youtube Shorts, but this integration for tiktok and reels from Facebook/instagram would be great

  14. When I have a 720p stream open on my 1080p monitor, the Display Resolution is 1530x777. This slight bit of scaling can cause a noticeable amount of blur on the stream, most noticeable with small text on the stream.

    I am requesting an option where the display resolution would match the stream quality, and just center the actual player in the available player area. If one resizes the browser window smaller then the edges of the display resolution, the edges of the stream would just get pushed under the UI and go offscreen. Plus, I would hope that not dynamically…

  15. A suggestion of an idea that it would be good if you implemented it, in the clips panel there should be an option to be able to make more personalized searches of the clips, to be able to filter the clips by year, month, day and also the possibility of searching for a clip by name

  16. The vertical clip edit feature twitch added is neat, but they need to make it so we can move our channel name piece around to where we want. It currently is locked in the middle of the screen.

  17. All streamers and viewers see how many are watching. A good idea would be to have 3 views on the live feed. The existing view count along with carousel, and a total of both. It would be beneficial for a performance, and for the ones viewing. It would be a moral boost for all involved. The stream summary that streamers receive after a show represents this. So why not have this info live as it happens.

    More Info Needed  ·  Ana responded

    Could you please clarify this? What do you mean by have 3 views on the live feed? Which carousel? Thanks in advance for clearing this up.

  18. I didn't know where else to put this, but I think channels should not have the "live" tag if they are a rerun. Maybe create a new tag that says "Rerun".

  20. Creators need to be able to edit clips like we can VODS. Some folks make a clip but don't realize they can capture just a moment and we end up with clips that are too long.
