Watch Later Queue
It'd be great to be able to add content to a queue that I can then watch later, in the order it was added, at my convenience.
Great idea, we definitely want to work on making the viewing experience better. How often would you say you add things to watch later, and when do you usually return to watch things that you have saved?
I love the idea of a queue. ive been trying to watch older videos from my favorite streamer but after one video is over it seems to auto play only their recent broadcasts. they have 800+ videos. so after each video i have to go back to their massive archive and do a whole lot of scrolling to find an older one. even just making autoplay play the next video would be great. if im watching episode 665 i dont want to watch 834 next, i want to watch 666, and then 667... being able to do that through a queue would make me wanna spend a lot more time here ;)
I like to watch multiple gaming youtubers and sometimes I don't watch all theirI vids and sometimes I want to watch a vid from like a week ago. It'd be cool if I could just add them all to a watch later playlist so i can just watch them all in one go when I'm doing my homework or something just like on youtube. I can just open the watch later and remove the ones I've watched so everytime a stream ends I don't have to go looking for a new one cuz that always just distracts me and I end up being too lazy to go find another one. There's a new minecraft smp called x life and I would love to be able to just gather everyone's livestreams from weeks ago till and hour ago so I can see everyone's progress.. just looking through after a stream ends makes it harder especially if I'm already comfortable. And I don't want to accidentally watch a new one and then find out I've missed a livestream.
This seems like a basic feature to have: 3 years and still nothing?
I've been attempting to spend less of my time on youtube, for the usual sorts of corporate angst reasons. Their algorithm for what they think I might want to watch next seems equally bad as anyone else's, but the ability to queue up 3 hours of videos so that I don't have to physically mess with the page while I work on other things is just too good compared to letting these sites select content for me. I'm at a point where I universally reject the next video on any kind of autoplay just from the habit of all the collection playlists running in reverse order.
I want to like Twitch, but the lack of features like this is making it really hard.
This would be a very nice feature

Good god, more than two years and no watch later still. Thankfully, many Twitchers upload their videos to Youtube. But not all...

+1. I do this all the time with YouTube. I sometimes spend 20 minutes n the bus hunting for videos I might watch later and queue them up.
I would absolutely love a watch later playlist - I can't always watch live or fall asleep and being able to have a queue to come back to would be awesome.
I would love to have this, I watch a lot of tournament VODs, which become bloated quickly so having the ability to add new VODs to a queue every day and just keep watching the queue would be very helpful.

I want a queue too. Or a history of what I already watched.
I think it would be good like "Enter unlimited Videos you watch later" and you should have a list with those Videos, even if you come back after days. so the Videos are in like a "Playlist"
On other video platforms, I typically add all videos that I want to watch to my Watch Later playlist. There I can put the videos in the order I want to watch them, then play the entire list without having to go to each creator's video page.
