multiple audio channels
Streams should be able to encode audio into separate audio channels, so that users can independently mix/select audio for each channel. For example, one channel could be music, another could be the streamer's voice, and another for the game/application's audio. In this example, if you were already playing music that you wanted to listen to, you could disable the streamer's music. Or, if you have trouble hearing the streamer's voice, you could turn that up. Or, if you don't want to hear the streamer or music, you could mute them and just listen to the game. I think it would also have a secondary benefit that you could independently remove audio channels in cases of copyright violation, so that the rest of the vod is still good even if there happened to be flagged music on one channel.
2 audio sources that the streamers can setup and viewers can control separately. for instance the streamer can have one audio source just for their voice and nother for their music. This would allow viewers to increase or decrease just a streamers voice, or just a streamers music
🧎 some streamers play the same 24/7 copyright free music every stream
🧎 some streamers play their bad spotify playlist on every stream
🧎 some streamers play their music too loud so I can't hear them
need multiple volume sliders, even if it's hidden behind an advanced control
Hey, it would be great if you guys could add a new feature that could turn down the game volume on a stream. This is good for playing games that requires sound while watching a stream at the same time. This is Just an
Save the vod, for those who transmit via cell phone without infringing copyright. Only music played on Spotify or whatever music app used. Separate audio - music from vod
Maybe this needs more attention to be heared?
Everyone who wants this feature could tell one or more of their favorite Streamers about this idea to spread it. And maybe make them vote here.
This feature would be very, very appreciated. If the viewers (and I) would be able to at least choose between audio channels (since most streamers already are using two audio channels; one where you can hear everything, and one without music, for the vod tracks), it could enhance the experience a lot.
I really hope we'll see this in the future.
It would be lovely indeed. Since a lot of streamers already uses two audio channels (One for live and one for the vods, and without music playing), adding an option for the viewer to chose between audio streams in live streams would come in handy as a streamer an also as viewer.
Adding separate volume controls for the channels sounds more appealing, but it might be difficult to perfectly synchronize the audio streams together.
I hate to watch streamer with good content and bad music choice.
It would be nice if my viewers could control if they want to hear my music or not without affecting other viewers that do want to hear music.
Maybe a colaboration with OBS or provide some audio channel or layer that user can disable.
That would such a good feature for the community if it could be achieved!
Since Twitch streamers can control their microphone and audio track separately, it would be great if the viewers also had 2 volume sliders to adjust them separately. This would help with multi stream audio clarity, or if the viewer and streamer has very different taste in music.
Simulcasting is now prohibited,
so the feature that allows listeners to turn off some audio is really needed for me.
(I used to simulcast video games "with my voice" and "without my voice" so that listeners could choose their preference)
I believe this is the hottest feature request (689 votes!) but I'm not seeing any comments or progress reports from admin. Is there any progress on the situation?
Streamers should be able to play their music directly from Twitch so viewers can choose to mute it.
Being able to individually adjust volume of game, streamer voice, music, etc would be beneficial to people with auditory sensitivity, PTSD, and several others.
This feature seems really helpful!
I am considering inviting guests to voice chat (VC) with me while I am gaming (the VC audio will also be on the stream), but I am hesitant because I can't avoid the guests hearing their voice twice from theirselves and the stream. This kind of "echo" makes it difficult to continue speaking, so I want to give them a option to listen to streamed audio without VC.
I believe this is an important feature that it deserves to be charged for. I could not be happier if you would consider implementing it!
I want to add a way for the viewer to manage the various audio tracks, each viewer can customize it as he prefers, in order to hear everything well
Integrate the microphone and background music of a streamer as two distinct input/output channels that can enable viewers to individually adjust the volume levels of each channel according to their preferences. By providing this feature, viewers who enjoy higher background music levels can select accordingly, while others who prefer no background music at all may mute the background music volume. This implementation can result in increased satisfaction among viewers, and alleviate the need for the streamer to constantly adjust background music levels, thereby increasing overall efficiency.
I stream with community sound effects using bot commands. Some people like these, some people don't. I have them set to channel 6 and do not save them to my VODs. I would like my viewers to have the ability to mute on a channel by channel basis on the live stream as well, so everyone can have the best of all worlds.
We can already stream content in this manner, please allow viewers to also control the volume of the different channels on their end.
A streamer has the possibility to set his microphone and his music to 2 audio tracks as is already done, but in the stream itself you only have the option of making the entire stream loud or quiet, a good option here would be to play the music separately turn it down OR just want to listen to the music and turn the streamer down.
You set your Spotify playlist (or local music) & your microphone in OBS. The viewer on Twitch now has another speaker icon when hovering over the speaker icon with the mouse. If he makes the first loudspeaker symbol quiet, only the microphone of the streamer (& potentially the game sound or something) is turned down but the separate music remains loud. The same with the second loudspeaker symbol, only the music is turned down and the streamer remains loud. Of course, if the viewer presses the loudspeaker symbol, both will continue to be muted. The advantage of this would be that the viewer can listen to his music himself and is not "forced" to listen to the music from the streamer.
Example of how it could look like in a stream: https://imgur.com/a/phSdWuI
(not me but i have permission to use this scene/picture, i just edited the second volume thing) (ps: yes ik that the last button is from a plugin and can be ignored.. xD)
Thanks for reading
Love the idea, has Twitch moved forward with it since it being mentioned here for five and a half years?
When can we see this available?
This actually describes the feature I need!
This was requested initially at Nov 5, 2016
but the feature is already half way there since we can have VOD tracks already...
