Absolute Timestamp on video/clip being viewed
At the moment we're only able to see the relative timestamp (i.e. "x days ago", "x months ago", etc) when we're viewing a video or clip.
To make it consistent with the experience when browsing videos, add the absolute timestamp of a video/clip when hovering over the relative timestamp just below the player/above the title.
Yes please this would make editors' job so much easier!
Add a date stamp to VODs instead of generic times like last month or last year. Even '20 days ago' is difficult as it can be off by a day or two. A real date so I don't have to guess and scan through the VOD to try and find a specific VOD. It's still going to be difficult as there are multiple time zones in play and VODs often span multiple days. But pick either the viewers time zone or streamers time zone and make it clear which. Both a start date/timestamp and end date/timestamp could also be included for clarity.
It would be much easier for us If we can see were in the vod a Clip was generated. I know it is possible to go to the position of the clip if the Vod is still online, but sadly If twitch took it down due to dmca it‘s not possible anymore even if you upload the vod again.
Air date is generally more useful than number of days since air on VODs. I often end up catching up on a game I really like of certain streamers but can't keep up with their live streams.
When the number of days keeps changing it gets weird to figure out where I left off.
(Im using iOS app) Please include time stamp info about when streamer were last live or when videos on their channel were recorded. Currently it shows how long ago in days the streamer was live, but that doesnt help to know when in the day they went live.
Alot of streamers are inconsistent, so knowing about when they have gone live recently can help predict when to tune in for the future. Maybe even a full info graphic showing the history of when theyre live, that would look cool, and encourage more streaming and people can account for when they should make time to watch live.
or at least be more precise in the older clips if they wont do the full date and time:
e.g a clip from October 17th 2020 ---'October 2020' or even just the year '2020'
The lack of this feature is maddening. I’d love to be able to point others at “back catalog” episodes to introduce them to my favorite streamers, or just to find these videos myself again, but the current Twitch UI makes this basically impossible.
It would be nice to see the absolute date (25/08/2020) of a clip instead of the relative date (12 days ago)
Let's say i want to see the VOD from 2018-10-13. I have to go through every single stream from "2-3 months ago" to find the right one, are you kidding me!?
I want to see SPECIFIC DATES on the VOD Thumbnails, thank you!
Broadcast date of past videos used to be shown with each video, but I can no longer find any date information. I have no clue when past videos I watch are from.
