  1. Some viewers may notice up to three new buttons below the video player of live channels: Rewind the Stream, Remind Me, and Watch Trailer.

    We're rolling out this update for testing purposes, to help inform future features. This experiment is expected to last one month.

  2. This has probably been thought about already, but why wouldn't you give the end-user the opportunity to decide the layout of the stream? What I mean is providing the end-user with similar options to the content creator. Meaning the user can decide where to place the face cam overlay, or even turn it off. Potentially even enable a second playback browser tab. That way, users have the potential to enjoy the gameplay without having part of the game covered with the content creators face. Or if they want, they can have the creators second camera on full screen in a…

  3. if picarto can have multi stream viewing in a single window twitch should be able to do it too, why do we need to use third party sites like multitwitch for something like this?

  4. It'd be nice to disable auto-play on Front Page videos. Just had the experience where I went to twitch.tv and the sound blasted in my ears, lol. Not the biggest deal in the world, but it would be nice to have the option to disable auto-play.

  5. There seems to be an increase in VODs being slapped with muted audio by random people or bots trying to get any claim they can. I have recently been hit with muted audio because the 'Driftveil city toothless meme' music was playing during a stream of Pokemon Black.
    That song is part of the in game soundtrack and it is clearly not Nintendo trying to make the claim.

    Please can a system be implemented whereby this things are reviewed before the audio is muted. Particularly if the claim is trying to catch something with the word 'meme' in it.
    It…

  6. I have 6 or more chatters interacting with my ChatBot, ie. Streamlabs Games and Such, and my Viewer Count shows 1 or 2 Viewers.. The Interaction lasts sometimes for over an hour and encompasses several ads.. As an Affiliate i am counting on these views for revenue. This is effecting my pocket book and not acceptable.

  7. After a certain amount of likes and dislikes for clips in the Feed section of the mobile app, I get stuck with the same 1-3 channels and it doesn’t change off of them unless I close the app completely. This doesn’t seem benificial for discoverability overall. A suggestion I have is to force clips from new channels after seeing the same channel(s) within 3-4 clips. Other ideas on solutions to this would be appreciated, but being stuck on the same channels does appear to be an issue.

  8. I do not know where to post the problem of the videos content, so I pose it here.
    Without age limit mark, some streamers directly use hateful speech and bad language or play voilent game in their stream. I don't feel comfortable with this. I love stream but this voilence problem keeps me away from Twitch. I know most of streamers follow this rule, but I still have to found these problem steams when I choose the live stream I like.
    Pleae give us cleaner stream environment without violence. Youtube does it well. Why can't Twitch?
    Thank you very much!

  12. The live count should represent viewers that are logged into their twitch account, not everybody that happens to be viewing a stream.

    The whole point of live streaming is interacting with viewers, bringing a creator and their community closer. If you are not logged into an account, you cannot chat, get channel points, use emotes, or otherwise interact with either the streamer or their chat. Viewers who are not logged in do not reap the benefits of attending a live stream, as such they should not be able to contribute to the live viewer count.

  14. 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.

  15. VODs shouldn't begin playing until I click on them, or the play button in the corner.

    As it is right now I need to set the browser to "Block Audio and Video" across the entire site in order to prevent the player from playing muted or unmuted.

    But this also affects livestreams, which I would also like to have to option of autoplaying, either muted or unmuted.

    Also, if it autoplays muted it should be possible to unmute simply by clicking on the video.

  16. Sleep mode / Turn auto-play off / Auto-Opt out of raids setting

    Please give the option to turn raids off as the viewer. I want to sleep I don't want my computer to stay on all night because people keep raiding each other. I want to save energy and I want my bedroom to go dark and silent. Advertisers are paying money for people who aren't even watching ads, pretty sure they don't want that either.
    As it is now if I want to go to sleep with media on I just make a little youtube playlist instead of watching…

  17. 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.

  18. we need to be able to skip & reverse 10 or 5 sec on the videos we watch cause @s a creator @rebellious247 it would be a whole lot easier to skip through my videos to make my highlights instead of watching it in a fast mode & for the viewers it would be good for them to reverse the video if they want to re-watch something they saw or heard

  19. The playback controls in the video player are very difficult to see for many streams. The icons are very small, and there is often not enough contrast against the video.

    Please (1) enlarge the playback controls and (2) darken and/or enlarge the gradient overlay between the controls and the video.

  20. My idea is to give the viewer the option to put many streams on the screen. so the viewer able to watch many streamers streams at once on one screen ... there already is a page that imight not be from twitch itself that does so it´s called "twitchtheater.tv" this is the link to the site: https://twitchtheater.tv/ ..... My wish and idea is that this ability should be on the regular twitch site and app too... to give the viewer the possibility to have stream opened on one browser tab instead of many single tabs to watch many streams at…
