Reruns vs LIVE
Live vs Reruns
i think it should be made cleared when a chanel is on a rerun, it shouldn't say "LIVE"
A way that i think they could help new streamers, or lew viewercount streamers overall is to have two subcategories, Live and Reruns.
this would let streamers that are live have a chance to grow.
on the asmr category it's getting out of hands the amount of reruns, youtubecompilations and bots. and we can't do anything about it too. i've reported multiple channels but they are still there, even getting into front page. it's sad to see how the essence of t
witch is getting lost.
promoting reruns over live channels
Live streams are much better, they should be at the top of the list as the performers put hard work into their streams.
"Don't just watch, join in
Welcome to Twitch. We are a global community of millions who come together each day to create their own entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable, never-to-be repeated experiences created by the magical interactions of the many."
From Twitch's own About page and mission! If Twitch would like to get into the YouTube style of content creation, then buy YouTube, or create a secondary Twitch.prerecorded website. I have nothing against active, live streamers running reruns on their channel from time to time, but we are far beyond that now, and have channels who ACTIVELY advertise that their content is pre-recorded. Right now, 3 of the top 8 channels are pre-recorded content, but they all SAY LIVE, and 3 of the top 8 channels are reruns. Only 2 of the top 8 channels right now are live, even though 5 channels say they are!! Meanwhile, all the legitimately live channels are down on the bottom below the YouTubers and the reruns, struggling to get views. Please protect your community! Thanks in advance.
First, there should be either: a way to toggle view if you want to see Live or Reruns; or have reruns pushed to the bottom and Live channels sit on top.
Second, if these 24/7 "LIVE" channels just looping YT videos aren't stopped soon, then the future of the ASMR category looks bleak. Someone can just set up an AFK channel and gain exposure FOR FREE. They don't ever have to put in the effort of going live, which so many of us love to do.
I really hope someone listens to this :(
reruns are cool when its clear, theres some ASMR streamers ive noticed who show as live but are just playing their youtube videos on loop, its technically coming live from their pc but they arent actually there its just automated
Twitch is a live-streaming platform and pre-recorded content is against its entire concept. Moreover, it opens up to the same content being played over and over under the context of being 'live'. Its very demotivating to both streamers who actually are live and the viewers who want to watch live content as well. There is no filter to separate the live-stream with the reruns either and I think these issues should be looked at seriously by the devs and managers.
Yes! The people that are Live streaming Pre-recorded content are never actually live in front of their viewers. If this continues, twitch is not going to be about live streaming any more, it will just be people "live streaming" their pre-recorded youtube content. Pre-recorded Live streams, Reruns, and view botted channels are taking over the ASMR category. Making it so hard working asmr artists (that are actually LIVE) are not being seen. There NEEDS to be a separation between reruns and live streams. AND the streams that are only streaming pre-recorded content NEED TO GO.
- Asmr streamers are starting to lose the drive to stream. Not just me, many asmr streamers. If this continues all that will be left is reruns and pre-recorded youtube videos.Genuine live streaming asmr artists wont waste their time streaming if their stream is not able to be viewed.
- You need to address this immediately Twitch.
I'm totally against the idea of running videos while claiming to be live. MissSykeology is notorious for this. It isn't at all fair to ASMR streamers and others who actually do live streams. It will eventually turn Twitch into just an annex for YouTube.
I am with it mostly. There may be some situations where it is different. For example there is this guy who is doing massages in Stream. He has to make it as a video because the person he is massaging has to change position from time to time. He is in his Chat and only let's run his newest video and only for 1 or 2 hours. In my opinion it is OK to do that, because he is "live" because he is in chat and answers questions and gives explanations and tips for massages and oil/wax and other stuff you need for massages.
100% agree, reruning content is fine, but it should not be top suggested.
I agree entirely, I find it shocking that an ASMR channel is playing youtube videos - which you can match to the second on youtube and yet is being highlighted on the Twitch homepage under "recommended live channels"
1. its not live
2. it's not even a re-run of an ASMR stream its a YouTube video
3. this isn't the only channel that is doing it
It is sad for all the people who are working hard to produce live broadcasts going unnoticed behind these "Live Streams" of youtube content. .. this is a live broadcasting platform not YouTube. . . if I wanted to watch youtube vids and have no interaction with a streamer or community I would go to youtube.
Please, address the issues within the ASMR category
Please Twitch. If you want to stay relevant you should address concerns like this. If nothing else allow us the tools to better sort Directories that are browsed. It is unacceptable a Blocked users Stream will show up in a Directory
I hate scrolling through all my followed channels and have to find the ONE that may be live. At least put pre recorded in it's own section, put the focus on the ACTUAL live people. It's getting old quick.
I'm not quite sure why this isn't being addressed sooner tbh
I am with you guys, if Twitch is not going to cease it, soon enough the whole platform might just become a "LIVE" playlist for YouTube.
I completely agree a rerun should not be allowed to be streamed as a live stream
You're absolutely right. These streamers who pass youtube playlist as live should not be allowed to do so. It is unfair to people who make actual live streams and also to the other reruns who actually show up as reruns
I agree entirely, I go to youtube, for pre recorded content. I have no issue with recorded content being broadcast as reruns, but it's false advertising to list it as live...
