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.
I ended up just writing a simple bookmarklet for this. Keep in mind this was made for use in chrome, and I really just winged it. It just waits for the amount of time you set in minute, and then simulates a click on the twitch player, which pauses it. Your mileage may vary, but works for me. Obviously the twitch tab will also have to be in the foreground. To use it, just save the following as a bookmark, with the code being the URL, and the name being whatever. Then when you click that bookmark on the twitch page, it'll pop up a dialogue for the time and a confirmation box after.
If you have an iPhone: Use iOS built-in clock app for a workaround: Simply open the Clock app, navigate to the Timer tab, and set up a timer for, let’s say, 1 hour. As the "When the timer ends" event, use the "Stop Playing" entry. This will stop playback of all applications. This also works for many other applications, not just twitch.
Maybe there’s a similar function on android?
Please enable the option to turn off autoplay. Whether awake or sleeping, it's a hassle on a platform where LONG content is the norm. It doesn't make sense for the site and I don't know of anyone who enjoys having autoplay as a permanent feature.
yes we don't need more sound to hear
Yeah, especially when you are struggling with OBS and Dialing in your system until 4AM and then crash yourself. Who wants to wait and then delete the 20 min piece of nothing that is a separate VOD before they sleep?
Please give ability to disable auto-play
Please fix this, I’m in the same boat as everyone here. It is honestly ridiculous at this point. I wake up and my phone is boiling hot with some teenager screaming whilst playing a game I’ve never even seen in my life. It’s stupid, please let us toggle this off in the app or give us a sleep timer option, either would do. Just address or solve this already it’s ridiculous
add a **** sleep timer like audiobooks have at least jesus
What a user-unfriendly way to design the website. Nobody wants to have a random person's streaming autoplaying. Just a disgrace in respect for your community, especially the auto-playing videos on mute in tabs that haven't been un-minimized. Youtube had this in the bag ages ago.
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
