  1. So there is already a request of Similar nature that got rejected. I believe it was because of the wording in their request. So I had this idea.

    The TLDR of it is that there should be a setting that allows you to enable or disable watching a Stream on one or 2 Monitors. On one Monitor you watch the Game or Whatever is happening and on the other, you have the Facecam of the given Streamer. I believe this would make for a better watching experience overall. Since most Streamers have good Facecams anyways it's a shame that that…

  2. I'm autistic and the audio for some games that I really like watching can be extremely overstimulating due to the players moving the camera around so much, causing the audio to jump from ear to ear in my headset. Both for people like myself, and for people who are hard of hearing in one ear, it would be extremely helpful for there to be an easy way to turn off stereo audio, making it a mono output.

  3. Basically the idea is top allow the streamer to upload one long video or several short videos that would be used as a placeholder when the streamer is having connection issues. That way the awkward silence for when their connection falters and the lame "Stream Having Issues" could be replaced with actual content to keep viewers around while they wait for the issues to stop.

    Additionally, I'd propose so:
    Partners would get a few more long videos for "Stream Issues" placeholder, as well as considerably more short videos.

    Said videos must NOT be set as "Subscriber Only".

    Their visibility within…

  4. Allow the customer to ignore TTS from certain users or all TTS in a given channel. It takes away from the user experience to have to deal with TTS spam. I'd like to watch and listen to the game and creator, not the annoying TTS spam.

  5. Twitch could have a subtitle feature for live content in English/Portuguese as we could watch it live in our native language or another language, as well as contribute to learning and fun at the same time.

  7. Create a playback rate shortcut, like Youtube.

    For example, when you go to a Youtube video and press: "SHIFT + >", the playback rate increases, and when you press: "SHIFT + <", the playback rate decreases.

  8. When a stream lags all viewers wonder if they lost connection, or did stream F. Show a different spinner for each of these cases

  9. When watching a replay of any Esport game, i.e LoL, you can take an educated guess of how many games have been played by the remaining time left. It would feel nice for a viewer to keep the excitement as if he/she was watching it live.

    I suggest hiding the time remaining bar on replays.

    Just my two cents, cheers
    Jason

  10. Would love to be able to set viewer permissions on different Video Sections.
    This way we can curate content for the public versus for followers or different sub tiers.
    This adds even more value to channel subs in a Patreon-ish fashion and empowers streamers to move away from platforms like YouTube.

  11. I can't send fans to Twitch if you won't let me put an uploaded video here as a new user. If this isn't a useable marketing tool, I can't send users to a dead end with no content. You should let every user upload at least one video of a predetermined length so fans don't show up and see an empty space. I have to use YouTube until you fix this problem. It's just not smart business to attract new users.

  12. If I mute a stream and then the streamer begins hosting someone else, the volume is reset at full blast. This can be pretty unpleasant. If you like to keep the volume settings channel-specific, which is understandable, you should probably add an exception for the "hosting-while-muted" case.

  13. Dear Twitch team,

    Could you please add settings to the video player in the Twitch mobile app or web for mobile devices allowing user to increase video speed (1.25, 1.5, 2 times) of past broadcasts (VODs) as it is possible on the web for desktops?

    OR

    Problem on the web for desktops is that it is not possible to jump few seconds forward and backward in the video using tablet or mobile device as these devices do not have arrow keys. Could you add there into the video player an icon allowing the jump forward/backward on a "mouse" click or…

  14. Summit tried 120 fps today and some ppl were reporting lag or frame drops but most ppl seemed fine with it, and kripp also tried 120 fps today but there seems to be only 1 person complaining about frame drops. Having an extra transcode option for 120 fps such as 1080p120 and the option to go back to 60 with 1080p60 would be important for making this more mainstream

  15. So I would like to add two new divisions of the website.

    Adding past broadcasts into a separate archive and revamping the video uploads functions into a third archive (clips, highlights and uploads). All now placed into separate discoverablity sections of the website.

    So at the moment everything is jumbled on the platform and user channels.

    From a channel perspective it would be as simple as adding these into separate tabs, eg the about and schedule tabs.
    That way you can drive more static video content creators to the platform. A rejig and rebranding of the highlights and clips features…

  17. It would be great if we were able to pause or jump back in time as it is done with YouTube lives

    And also having the ability to change the speed when timeshifting

    A use case for example would be watching a live from the start at 1.5x speed which gives the ability to catch up to the live stream instead of waiting for the full VOD to come out

  18. I think the navigation of vods is pretty tedious. It would greatly benefit from a more user friendly interaction. The Android app has buttons to revert 10 seconds or skip 30 seconds. This is great, however these buttons aren't accessible enough due to being to small. As Fitts's UI design Law teaches us, the accessibility can be increased by increasing the size of the button. The way YouTube does it is splendid. The left half of the screen is used to navigate backwards and the right to navigate forwards. Then, by simply double tapping in the respective region the user…

  19. I think it would be amazing to have a snappy instant replay option whereby, with the touch of a button we could have a pop-up overlay which could be set to play back the last 5-15 seconds (or however much time deemed optimal by the community) of action with playback control.

    Clips are a great feature and definitely have their place like when a streamer asks us to clip something or we just want to highlight and share something with chat, but they do take us away from live action by opening in a new tab.

    Most of the time…

  20. Twitch need to contact Oculus to add Twitch streaming to Oculus Quest.

    Oculus Quest is standalone vr headset which has great games like beat saber, rec room etc.
