Searching a video within a channel
For now, the video section of a channel only highlight the latest ones or show them all depending on some filters.
What about having a search engine? In my case, I'm syncing over 1700 videos from a Youtube channel et on the frontend or backend of the channel there's no way to search for a specific video to, for example, modify things, check stats, etc.
Thanks for your attention
The 'Filter by' feature and its search box really is unintuitive to the point of breaking basic UI 101 best practices. The fact that this search box is designed such that it's displayed within the streamers channel area, your intuition is that it will only be searching that streamers content collection but it doesn't. It really is annoying.
I am constantly going to youtube to find some streamers' videos because of this. If they don't have youtube I often just completely ignore them unless they're live.
I also can't understand why this wasn't a basic feature from day one...
I would love this, i tried to find the VOD of GreekGodX playing Welcome To The Game II to rewatch it, but i think it got removed cuz i couldn't find it anywhere. Now imagine if i could go to his channel, search for the game, and find all the clips and VODs that have to do with Greek and that game!
I don't get how Twitch has yet to implement a way to search all streamers saved series and search for them. Sad to still see no traction on this. Not even worth a twitch community mod to put a reply on why this isn't happening.
Why do you even pay for uservoice if you don't seem to use?
Hang on a sec... why is this not a thing. Surely this is basic search functionality. We need this asap.
Agreed, a search would be nice. Essential, actually.
Just subscribed to a channel with 1700 videos and I can't search them for specific things. This seems... pretty ridiculous. Back to YouTube then!

You can type in [Video Title] [Twitch Username] and select "Videos" in the result dropdown. Works, but we need a better built in search!

This is a commplete joke. How do they not have this?!
Back to YouTube I go.
I'd like to find videos from within a channel, thanks.
classic multi million dollar company in 2018 , no search bar

It's retarded that this still isn't' a thing
Twitch, FFS ADD THIS ASAP PLS!
How is this not a thing yet? I could not understand where the search bar was so I googled it and arrived here.
This is so badly needed. I keep coming back to this service to see if it's possible to filter by specific game in a streamers back catalogue. So long as this feature is not available I'm pretty sure I will never use Twitch. Real shame too as one of my fav creators, Beaglerush, now only uses twitch but I only want to watch his xcom stuff.
I also struggle to understand why Twitch doesn't have this?
You're literally giving people NO choice but to go and watch the VODs on YouTube instead.
FORCING your customers to use your competitor's service is not an effective business model :o
I hardly go to Twitch and when I went to a channel to find old videos I couldn't see a search bar. I can't imagine how people live there without a search bar...
What channel is twich
What a joke that we can't search. It's 2018
