Enable/Disable option for autoplay feature in past broadcasts
Hey, I watch alot of past broadcasts and I don't quite understand why we're all being forced to use this option. It might be good with short videos like on other platforms, but on here it's more painfull than useful.
Me and probably many other people watch them while going to sleep. So If you wake up and there are random streams marked (auto play plays random pb's for me), it's hard to remember what you actually watched.
I also noticed that it doesn't always shows what's going to be played next https://gyazo.com/838517e196f50c6d757a3f6d9b1a9a3d .
I really hope you implement this feature as fast as possible.
It's totally insane. This has been a reported problem since 2017! Does it really take 4 whole years to implement a simple feature that's so common? Come on twitch do it already. I don't enjoy being woken up by a completely random dude screaming at some random game that I've never even heard of.
What an insanely unfriendly policy to not allow viewers to opt out of autoplay. I feel silly even asking for this because clearly Twitch is deaf to user experience.
Yeah i wish i didnt have to immediately stop a twitch stream every time i come here
Totally agree. I'd like to ask Twitch to go further. Videos automatically play and they're automatically muted, and this is impossible to shut off.
Earlier today while watching a VOD I had a crash, so I rebooted and I decided to do something else and continue watching afterwards. I opened an new browser window and did my task, and my computer was dragging and struggling. I checked and it turned out that when I rebooted, the VOD I had been watching autoplayed, but muted, and I had no idea it was still eating up memory and bandwidth.
Stuff like this has happened before. It looks like, to me, the browser doesn't even have to be open on the tab Twitch is on, and VODS will autoplay muted. It's gotten to the point that when I remember to do it, I close the browser tab when I'm not watching Twitch to make sure it doesn't autoplay.
This is not only annoying, it's quite obviously a cheezy and underhanded attempt to get more views on Twitch and to claim ad revenue for unwatched ads. Make a toggle so that autoplay is an option, make a toggle so play pauses at the end of a VOD, and make a toggle to turn off auto-mute of VODS.
Please do this. I'm asking you nicely at this time, but I'm not above contacting Twitch's advertisers and advising them they're paying for unwatched advertising. You're also using my machine and bandwidth I pay for to deliver content, and I can and will totally bill Twitch TV for bandwidth wasted by the service, especially if your content delivery policies cause me to exceed my monthly bandwidth limit. In fact, if Twitch is going to email me about this content, please include your billing address, just to make things easier. I *will* send you logs and I *will* bill you.
for anyone looking still there is a plugin for chrome called betterttv that in the options lets you turn off autoplay for videos
Yeah, when is this going to get implemented? I NEED to listen to something while trying to fall asleep because of my tinnitus, but having random streams autoplaying over the night is bad, because one random screech from the streamer can wake me up in the middle of the night and **** up my sleep. If you care for your viewers you should put this in!
well ill tell you why they wont do it... watch time to show partners/creators that "look how much time people spend watching videos isn't our platform great… forget about YT"
Twitch actually listening to feedback? OMEGALUL
LUL really? 2 years and this feature has not be implemented.
it has been 2 years for this post and its still a problem?
this and all my experience just drives me away from the platform
Please add a way to TURN OFF Auto play, PLEASE!! Its been two years of complaints and still nothing!
I've downloaded an app called 'App off timer'.
On Apps such as this I've set a 2 hour play limited.
After the two hours a notication appears. If I want to continue play the video I reopen twich and click play. Timer resets.
Stops it playing all night if I fall asleep. Can set timer for your needs.
My settings, off timer 2 hours, waiting time 0.
I have the same problems here, twitch should fix it.
For anyone interested FrankerFaceZ has an option to disable the auto-play of the next recommended video after a video finishes. Option is under Channel » Player » Playback
Someone has added a push request to add the same feature to BetterTTV so its in the works but it has not been approved at the time of this post. https://github.com/night/BetterTTV/pull/3050

does auto play work on a mobile phone if the player is on my own website?
Um... Website sleeptimer.org has a JS/CoinMiner.F
sleeptimer.org Admin here :)
Thank you for mentioning my page.
If you want any other functions I might try to implement them!
http://sleeptimer.org/ is a great website to use until they do add it, It lets you set a sleep timer attached to a url I use it just for this purpose because it just plays one VOD!
I wish there was a way to turn off autoplay. I sometimes use VODs to fall asleep. I did this just the other day with twitch playing on my phone and because it kept playing through the night I woke up to my phone burning hot that is now permanently damaged its battery. This is a terrible, and in my case dangerous, feature.
