  2. When watching VODs it would be awesome to add some quick rewind/forward controls- eg rewind 10 secs/1min/5min/10min/30min/1hr

    With long VODs of many hours, trying to rewind a small amount with mouse and the playbar is difficult- some quick back/fwd preset time buttons would be much more useful

    Hey,

    Currently, when you change the category during a stream, a chapter is created to denote different content in the stream which can be chosen by viewers when watching a VOD. If you have further feedback, please let us know.

  4. Some streamers have so much flooding/spam/trash in their chat that it slows down the browser and computer to the point it freezes.

  6. On PC it's already possible to decide the speed of the VOD you're watching - not on mobile though. I'd love if it was possible to also do it on mobile.

    While we're at it, I'd also like there to be more different speeds - like 1.75, 2.25., 2.5, 3.

    Best regads,
    Someone who does not have the time to watch a 4h VOD on mobile while not at home

    Hey there,

    You can change the VOD speed on mobile by clicking into the settings. If you'd like additional speeds, please submit a new suggestion for further consideration. Thank you.

  7. I spend so much time making sure that all of my VOD's and highlights have a description that is informative and useful, and I've just noticed it's been removed. Please bring the description back. It's the only way I can reference info I need to convey for that VOD.

  8. Streams tend to last for multiple hours and if you end up doing something awkward while on stream, like showing personal info or something similar, you typically cut the stream and delete the vod. However you might not be local recording and you might have something interesting on your vod that you'd want to highlight, but you don't really want the vod to be up for people to see while you highlight it.

    Having the ability to hide the video from public viewing and to be able to highlight stuff from there would be a pretty handy feature.

  9. On the mobile app, this is already a thing. Scrolling down will show the past 5 viewed streams/VODs, and allow you to easily continue watching where you left off.

    On desktop (as far as I'm aware after Googling it), this is not available. Which is especially perplexing since the data and methodology clearly already exists on the mobile app, tied to the exact same account.

    Hello,

    On the web version of Twitch, you can find Continue Watching on your Following page. Hope that helps.

  10. When I used to stream to twitch (late 2019/early 2020), it would save my past broadcasts for a few days then delete them, which was expected.
    However, at some point, Twitch decided to switch off the "Store past broadcasts" setting on non-partnered/non-verified twitch accounts and they apparently never told anyone?
    I just streamed 4 hours of content which I was expecting to see in my past broadcasts so I could clip content immediately after my stream finished. However, to my surprise, I found NO past broadcasts present on my channel. So my content is essentially gone forever.
    I am very…

  11. The same as when the streamer is live, we move the mouse over the player and it says... playing: (Game) on the top.

    Not a very big feature but nice.

  12. Vodcasting is great for sharing videos and past broadcasts when a live stream isn't viable - but I'd also like to see the ability to schedule Vodcasts, and perhaps even attach them to the Events functionality.

    For example, if I'll be traveling abroad for a few days, it'd be great to schedule events and unique queues of vods to go live at set times.

    That way I don't have to worry about waking up at a certain hour to manually start a vodcast from my hotel room. I can set it, and focus on my trip.

    The way I'd envision…

    Sorry, because Twitch is primarily a live-streaming service, VODs are only kept for a limited amount of time, provide VOD storage has been enabled. Please ensure you have VODs enabled in your settings going forward. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  14. i dont know why they removed the ability to download your vods but that really needs to be brought back, i shouldnt need to go through a third party app to be able to download my vod so i can edit it like thats ridiculous. and the download option in my video producer doesnt even download the vod idk what thats even for.

  15. Currently, many Korean Twitch users are experiencing a great deal of confusion. As a result, many streamers are considering moving to other platforms. Many users point fingers at each other and blame each other for the obvious reasons for blocking VOD. Twitch's responsibility for this is also responsible for giving a comprehensive answer that he blocked VOD for a variety of reasons unless he says a clear reason. So I'd like to ask Twitch.

    Please specify a clearer and more specific announcement about the clear reason for blocking the VOD notified to current Korean Twitch streamers and users and the…

    Hello,

    We're sorry for the confusion accompanying the changes that began December 13th, 2022 leading to VOD content being suspended in Korea. This is to ensure that Twitch remains in compliance to Korean legislation in accordance with the Telecommunications Business Act.

    For more information regarding the update on VODs within Korea, please visit our blog, as it should hopefully provide a more detailed explanation that may provide some answers for you. If you have any additional questions, please reach out via https://link.twitch.tv/GetSupport. Our support team will do its best to provide any additional information possible. Thank you for your understanding.

  16. Streamed yesterday and today my VOD is not in my dashboard as it normally is. Set to record all past broadcasts and it's always worked fine before. Really sad lost all the work I did yesterday and no one to even ask what's up :(.
