  1. Pressing , or . will go back 1 frame or forward 1 frame just like on youtube. Sometimes I want to see how many frames it took for someone to kill the streamer I'm watching on Valorant for example.

  2. Making highlight clips for downloading from Past Broadcasts, but not publish clips on your video feed. Can download different clips and but them together as one to upload video section. (with video editing software/site video editor not needed)

  3. Some streamers currently feel that there isn't enough incentive for people to sub. I think that streamers should be able to have a stream that is only visible to subs, similar to the sub-only feature for VoDs. This could allow creators to reward their subs for supporting them and to give non-subs more incentive to sub. I understand that some streamers might begin to only do sub-only streams, but I think that should be their decision, and that they will almost certainly lose viewers by doing so. They need to decide whether or not the few gained subs would be…

  4. I want to be able to stream and password protect it, so I can share gaming strategies with my friends, and not have that leak out.

  5. I recently had a person on my stream, in live game say the N word. It would be nice to be able to mute that segment of Audio, instead of having to delete the entire video.

    This kind of issue is disgusting and needs to be dealt with. I reported the person, but it will not have any real consequences.

    Please consider putting a mute feature in the video editing section.

  6. I should be able to click a button to view the other's perspective temporarily without leaving the channel.

    For example, in a FPS such as PUBG.. to make the experience more immersive for the audience, we can navigate the stream environment by jumping to another twitch streamers perspective temporarily to see things from their perspective real time for a few seconds.

    It would make it very engaging without interrupting the streamer we enjoy watching.

  7. Seems that the volume control no longer appears on offline streams.

    Please readd it

    Some people will wait for a streamer to go live, but have the volume "remembered" from a different streamer they watched last night and suddenly get blown out speakers

  8. What:
    Seperate volume control/mute for an additional "new" audio output (streamer defined). Mainly thinking music track here.

    Why:
    As a sufferer of Attention deficit disorder, i often have a hard time focusing on/hearing the streamer.

    Bonus:
    Replacing the played music with your own taste and the "having a stream on in the background while doing other stuff" viewing style.

  9. I get that these broadcasters are featured and lots of people are watching them, but if they are going to show up on the home page, the volume should be muted.

    Or, leave it paused, or remove it.

  10. Twitch, so far I'm loving the overall experience, and I think you guys do a tremendous job of listening to your community and incorporating said community feedback.

    That said, there is one aspect of Twitch that bothers me right now.

    I'm a gamer, and play a variety of games, namely first-person-shooters and open-world games. I like to organize all my game uploads into collections by game title. It would be nice if I could upload thumbnails featuring the game art for each collection.

    Can we please get thumbnail support for collections, allowing us to add some personality to our collections?…

  11. Add a button to the interface labelled "What have I missed?" that when clicked will show a couple of minutes of random video from the current (or previous) live stream so that people who are late to the broadcast can catch up on what has happened before they got into the stream.

  12. When a stream is paused, the stream ending and hosting/raiding another stream causes the new stream to play. There is not an easy way to "stop" playback (it can be done, but you have to go to another page so that the player shrinks and gets a "close" button), and it is frustrating to suddenly have playback if you've stepped away for a bit (i.e. phone call, doing something away from the computer, etc.).

    Either there should be a "stop" button in addition to the "pause", or pausing a stream should not start playback when the streamer raids/hosts another stream.

  13. It would be nice to add something where I can mute the music the streamer is playing and only listen to him speaking. Its just sometimes the music the streamer is playing is not what I want to listen to but I still want to hear what hes saying or I would like to listen to my own music instead .I think this would also remove the the muting of some parts of the Vods because of the copyrighted music

  14. Most modern browsers have a picture in picture mode that can be activated by right clicking on the video, or pressing a dedicated UI button. Twitch supports this natively, but only if you mess with the HTML in the Web inspector first. Please add a button for this, or let us do this by right clicking on a stream's video.

  15. It would be nice if the webplayer would adapt to streams other than 16: 9 aspect ratio. As I stream in a 21: 9 aspect ratio, I have black stripes that look bad and are unnecessary

  16. Playing streams at 60fps leads to lots of short buffers and regular intrerruptions. Having an option to play 60fps streams at 30fps regardless of whether the streamer only offers the source, should be a feature.

  17. Streamer can offer the face cam as an optional secondary draggable window. This way the viewer can customize its position as the face cam sometimes blocks information such as game HUDs. Also this way a viewer can close the face cam and only watch the content.

  18. I’ve noticed that lately all streamers have gotten addons that will disable double-click to fullscreen unless I disable the addon. This is actually extremely annoying, as you have to be pretty precise to hit the small full-screen button in the lower right, or I have to go and disable the addon every time. I never use it anyways, so maybe either enable doubleclick to fullscreen again, have the addon disabled by default (but I guess you have more stats of who are actually using it) or best of all, add some setting so I can disable it by default. It’s…

  19. Some streamers have to delete a whole VOD just because of something that breaks TOS or because they leak something.

    Maybe a command that the broadcaster can type in his chat to censor the last couple of minutes of the vod making it impossible to be clipped or re watched.
    For Example:
    a stream leaks his address.
    he can type something like /VC5 and can blackout the last 5 mins of his vod and any clips created within that time rather then go offline and delete the whole thing.

    Dont know if such a thing is possible but it would…
