  1. Add a "Sort by" filter allowing people to better browse through game directories

    The game directories on Twitch right now are a bit of a mess. It's hard to filter through all the uploads and streams to really find out what's popular and what's been uploaded/streamed recently, as there isn't really any way to filter the results, aside from language and video type.

    Twitch should add a "Sort by" filter option, allowing people to sort videos by common filters such as "Most Recent", "Most popular in last day", "Most popular in last week", etc. This way people can better tell what's been popular lately, as well as see all the newest content regardless…

  2. A option to take more then one Highlight from the same video and fuse them together in to a Daily highlights of the (date) stream!

    you guys should make it posseble for me after every stream that i did cut multeble highlights and easily paste them together with some effects ofcours they would be simple things but a real help to make it for every streamer posseble to let there potention show and dont have to work 8 hours for it. we streamers mostly work and begin whit no money at all so we need to work more to get all the streaming stuff together not less becuase the website is making everything so imposseble to do.

  3. Limited Permanent Uploads For Twitch Prime/Turbo Users

    This is something that would not only benefit Prime/Turbo streamers, but would also benefit Twitch/Amazon in the process. Offer something like 10 videos that stay permanently on your videos tab for your uploads or even your past broadcasts (although I think the uploads would be a better feature to stick with), but make this feature only available for Twitch Prime or Turbo users. This could be an exclusive special for those who already pay Twitch for the little bit that's already offered AND a way to gain new revenue for a more enticing feature to Twitch.

  4. Some Wishes with clear Description

    Playlist - You should be able to have Playlists on your Channel, where you can set a specific Thumbnail vor this Playlist and use Keywords to automaticly add Videos to this Playlist. You should be able to give the Playlist rules like "Latest Video at top" etc.

    Other Formats -
    MOV
    MPEG4
    AVI
    WMV
    MPEGPS
    FLV
    3GPP
    WebM
    MKV (Matroska) is most important for me

    Comment section - A Section under the Videos, where Users can Comment something. You should be able to even there let Moderators delete Comments. Should be the same Moderators like you have in your Livestreams.

  5. Change the search rankings for uploaded videos

    Currently the search rankings reflects that of the live content: view count. While this works for live content to an extent, it hampers the growth of the uploaded content. Youtube works on a method of keeping viewers locked into its site by funneling people down a tunnel of interesting and related content by keeping the content fresh, and if Twitch relies on this same method, it will end up with old, high view count content staying on the top and new, fresh content falling below the line, never to be seen. Twitch needs to use a similar, but unique, method…

  6. Annotations

    Or atleast some sort of form of Annotations, so creators can easily link people from one video to another, or link them to their Social Medias, by simply having the viewer click somewhere on the video screen. I don't think they HAVE to implement this, but it would be a pretty convenient feature to have I think. :)

    Thanks for the feedback! How often would you use annotations, and besides links and text would there be something else you would want to have in the annotation?

  7. Add Technology Review In Game List

    For those who are streamers but also YouTubers, some of us don't just game we love our technology and what makes our gaming experiences a lot more enjoyable. Sometimes we find products and technology that just blow our minds and we want to share that with others. In the game list, there are all sorts of games and even a Creative and Talk Shows option. In releasing the new upload feature, there should also be a new category for Technology or Reviews. I think Technology would be a good general category to fit reviews and other such related uploads in.…

  8. Improve current Search facility based on Video uploads - game type

    When searching for "Chess" in main search, one gets a listing of people with "Chess" prefixed nicknames. Could the new uploads facility be an opportunity to also integrate those that upload many videos with that particular game string "Chess". I upload loads of "Chess" videos only but my nickname is "Kingscrusher". So I won't be found on the "people" for Chess. Can a new search listing be provided for those that actually are uploading "Chess" game content.

  10. Whatever happened to autoplay? Wasn't that something before? If brought back could it swap between autoplay and autohost automatically?

    I don't know if autoplay is still around but I thought it would be great to alternate between showing your greatest clips and such and hosting your friends without you having to intervene manually.

  11. Don't allow us to just click out of the edit video window.

    When you're editing the thumbnail, description, etc. you can accidentally exit the window when you click anywhere outside of it. Then you lose all of the work you just did. Either autosave the info that's been entered, or don't make it so easy to accidentally exit.

  12. A few useful features

    The ability to make Playlists, so we can organize different series/Games.
    Annotations so we can link to our twitter or facebook, or in an outro we could link to a previous video.
    A way for smaller channels to get discovered, like under 100 followers or under 50 followers catagories.
    A hub showing all uploads from everyone you follow, starting from the latest upload.

  13. Set as Official Series (Mirrored YT Functionality)

    This is a related suggestion to the playlists feature request but covers slightly different functionality. On YouTube, you can set a group of videos as an "official series" which changes the AutoPlay, recommended videos and search algorithm for videos in that series. Each individual video can only be part of one "official series".

    Setting a group of videos as an official series should cause the entire series to appear as a single item in the list of videos for that game, with a unified views count across all videos in the series. The same should go for individual channels' video…

  14. you should do all the things youtube does except the bad things like encouraging trolls with the hero program.

    youtube does a lot of shady things that creators dont agree with for so many reasons. i would say do all the good things that youtube does and none of the things that allow people to troll on creators and streamers. i would love to any site other then youtube and frankly twitch is the only hope here.

  16. Crowdsourced Timestamping

    The majority of YouTube's content is fairly short, in the <1 hour range. By contrast, Twitch's content is largely uncurated and long-form, running >3 hours. It would be immensely helpful to have an official Timestamp system for each video where you can mark points of interest in uploaded videos. Viewers could review the full list of timestamps and click them to jump to the relevant points of the video. This would be difficult for streamers to maintain alone, so opening it up to viewers (specifically Channel Editors) to timestamp videos would be very helpful.

    Let's Players could use this to…

  17. Upload to Youtube problems

    This is made to be feedback, but I did not see that listed in the drop-down menu. This is probably because it is open beta, but every time I have exported an uploaded video from Twitch to Youtube, it has automatically failed. If I need to give more details, please tell me. This does not happen with videos streamed to Youtube; rather, the success rate exists.

  18. Sorting options/ability to set recommended sorts

    Right now Uploads are sorted along with other videos by # Views only. Over time this will cause older videos to naturally rise to the top and will make it very difficult for new uploads to compete. Having additional sorting options will help mitigate this issue in the Games Browser. It would be helpful if individual channels could specify a recommended default sort for their own uploads (If for example, I'd rather my viewers see my VODs in order of their upload date instead of # views).

  19. Character count for Description/Tag Creation

    A feature that allows you to view how many characters are allowed and used while typing up both your description and tags.

    As suggested in another idea, tags at the moment are rather restrictive on just how long individual tags can be, but in my experience it seems like there is also a rather low tag limit (i.e., I enter a lot of tags and it seems that the first few will be removed in favor of the last ones that I entered)

    Some plugins/addons for sites such as YouTube (vidIQ, TubeBuddy) or Reddit (RES) have similar functions when creating…

    Thanks for the feedback! We are working on this. How many characters do your typical tags have?

  20. Tag Suggestions Based on Type of Videos

    Back in the day you'd start making tags on a Youtube video and than Youtube would suggest tags based on what's popular/what tags you've already made.

    I would love if they implemented something like that on Twitch uploads!
