Add ways to easily browse clips, highlights and/or VODs
As it stands today, the only way for anyone to actively see clips from a content creator on this site is either via the small section featured on the home page if you scroll down enough or by looking at the specific streamers profile. With how many clips, highlights and VODs exist on this platform, there should be a way for viewers to easily browse/consume that content without having to discover that creator while they're live.
Although this is a broad request, essentially what I'm asking for is:
Landing page for highlights / VODs, with a way to search for content a user is looking for
Landing page for scrolling through clips, where you can react / comment on popular clips on the website (could even look into allowing a viewer to curate what kind of clips they want to see from the start, from games they enjoy to creators they know they like, with clips from other recommended creators in those preferences in between).
These two additions would allow for extra discoverability for creators, as well as giving viewers a reason to spend more time on the platform versus competing sites. It would also give viewers a reason to be on Twitch when their favorite creators aren't live.
Give the content already housed on your platform a chance to shine here.
I 100% agree on this. It would give streamers so much discoverability to have their popular clips be seen by everyone on the platform. Twitch having their own algorithm of clips being cycled to millions of viewers would be great; especially since short form content is extremely popular right now. I believe this will elevate streamers to the next level and encourage viewers to create more clips and hype.
