  1. Some viewers may notice up to three new buttons below the video player of live channels: Rewind the Stream, Remind Me, and Watch Trailer.

    We're rolling out this update for testing purposes, to help inform future features. This experiment is expected to last one month.

    We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

  2. Such a feature would make it easier for viewers to find what they are looking for content-wise, and for broadcasters if they need to find a pre-existing video or collection to edit or delete.

  3. It seems as though twitch videos no longer show or have an expandable description beneath the video player or I cannot find it after searching everywhere on the page. There needs to be a spot where the video description can be read by the viewer as the video may reference written information that the viewer can find in the description and is an important spot for providing relevant links.

  4. I tend to have multiple tabs of twitch open, most of which are paused. Too often when I am doing something else, audio is suddenly playing in an unknown tab because somebody was hosted and their stream autoplays.

    I've made the conscious decision to pause the stream, and I want it to stay paused, especially if I'm in another tab. It doesn't encourage me to watch the hosted stream, it encourages me to keep twitch completely closed.

  5. if picarto can have multi stream viewing in a single window twitch should be able to do it too, why do we need to use third party sites like multitwitch for something like this?

  6. Twitch currently allows rampant view-botting because the view count includes embedded twitch apps in external websites. This creates a huge imbalance and unfair playing field for streamers who dont cheat.

    Nobody watches streams from external websites. They go there for info on any topic and are automatically counted as a viewer. Just think of the ways this can be exploited. I see it all the time on Twitch.

    The biggest way people discover streams is by who has the highest view count. This is a critical number that should be honest.

    After you fix this part of viewbotting, then we…

  9. It'd be nice to disable auto-play on Front Page videos. Just had the experience where I went to twitch.tv and the sound blasted in my ears, lol. Not the biggest deal in the world, but it would be nice to have the option to disable auto-play.

  10. The playback controls in the video player are very difficult to see for many streams. The icons are very small, and there is often not enough contrast against the video.

    Please (1) enlarge the playback controls and (2) darken and/or enlarge the gradient overlay between the controls and the video.

  11. My idea is to give the viewer the option to put many streams on the screen. so the viewer able to watch many streamers streams at once on one screen ... there already is a page that imight not be from twitch itself that does so it´s called "twitchtheater.tv" this is the link to the site: https://twitchtheater.tv/ ..... My wish and idea is that this ability should be on the regular twitch site and app too... to give the viewer the possibility to have stream opened on one browser tab instead of many single tabs to watch many streams at…

  12. I noticed that the clips are deleted by the system due to the presence of copyrighted music. In the recording of the broadcast, these places have a mute. It would be nice to turn off the sound in them instead of deleting clips.

  13. Would it be possible to have at the bottom the number of viewers to see how many subscribers there are on the channel?

    it would also allow us to see how many subscribers there are compared to the number of people watching the stream.

  14. Prior warning for people who may have perm ear damage from scare alert donos or asked to lower volume (espically if the chat is wearing headphones). Just something to keep people safe from full pitch screaming.

  18. When switching from the main stream to a pov with the overwatch league all access pass the pov is always way ahead of the main stream so if you switch from Main to a pov you may miss an entire team fight even if you try to switch back quickly.
    It seems like a simple fix to just have the pov streaming match the main stream. Or maybe even be a little behind to counteract the loading time between the streams. That way when switching you don't miss important parts of gameplay.
    Thank you.

  19. I like to keep the video stats window open while I watch streams, but its fixed placement sometimes covers an important part of the stream. So, I'd love it if we had the ability to move the video stats window around the screen, just by holding on to top bar.

  20. When watching esports it often spoils it when we see the time bar as we know how long remains.

    Scenario:
    When watching a best of 3 esports match, knowing that games last ~30 minutes, if the broadcast is about 1 hour long then we know it will not go to a game 3 hence ruining the suspense of the match.

    How to fix:
    Before viewing, or in the settings, allow an option to hide the time bar and allow us simply to skip forward or rewind by 10s, 30s, 1m, 2m, 5m, 10m etc.
