  1. This may have an opt in feature or moderate clips you are tagged in before allowing the tag so as not to be flooded by clips you aren't in or don't want on your channel or to be tagged in.

  2. The mobile verison supports "Audio only", but not at Browsers or App on Desktop. While Data-Usage shouldn't be problem on PC - but it actually might - in addition, Twitch uses an non-insignificant amount of CPU-power, which could also benefit from that option (i.e. of Talk Shows, Podcasts, ASRM, Music Streams, ...).
    I see no point, to exclude this feature on PCs.

  3. Would be gread if we could pull more than one file to the upload field and then all the videos will be sequential uploaded.

    Planned  ·  Catherine Hsiao responded

    Thanks for the feedback, we understand bulk upload needs and are looking into requirements. How many videos do you think you will upload at a time, and how often will you upload multiple videos?

  4. Can we please list pre-recorded content as re runs, or create a new catagory as it's wrong to list is as Live, it's doing a diservice to the streamers who make the effort to sit in front of their PC's broadcasting live content and it's killing their channels, especially the ASMR catagory.

  6. The ability to have closed captioned and subtitled videos. Twitch wouldn't need to have a closed captioning system, just the option to upload a CC file (i.e SubRip, SubViewer, RealText, etc) and preferably to be able to maintain the more advanced files' caption positioning.

  7. I think it would be cool if Twitch made it so streams can have music on a separate audio stream and viewers can choose if they want to hear both streamer and music or just the streamer. The music part can be made to all for song requests or interfaced with outside music sources like iTunes or Windows Media Player

  8. Similar to how Dota 2 interface for watching live games, it would be helpful for users to be able to rewind couple of seconds during a live session of a stream to rewatch something they might have missed without having to wait for a vod.

  9. I'm just uploading a single Video with just 1.9 GB. Upload is 5 times slower than to youtube. It's rediculous slow.

    I have a stable 10 mBit-Upload connection. Twitch jumps between 2000 and 9000 and every 3-4 Minutes there is a buffer of 5 minutes, where simply nothing happens.

    Fix it. It's really awkward that your upload is slower than on other third party sites like vid.me.

  10. Summary:

    If you clip a video, you can make a Collection for it.
    A streamer can make Collections of other users clips of their channel.
    Other user’s Collections of streamers should be visible on both Streamer and Clippers channel.

    A great feature which could be integrated could be to allow Clips to be put into a Collection. This would allow the Streamer to pick out favourites from their community clips and put them into a Collection for others to watch.

    Ie, sometimes someone makes a fantastic clip from a VoD that never got high views/was shared but might be hilarious…

  11. With Uploads, streamers can keep their VOD archive forever. It is finally possible to see a record of every game an individual streamer has played in their career by reviewing their Uploads page. It would be cool to add a "Games Browser" for each channel that mirrors the existing site-wide Games Browser. You would get a searchable view of all of the games represented in a channel's Uploads sorted by total # Views for each game. Streamers could use this to link to archives for specific games they've played on Twitch the way we can currently link to specific games…

  12. I love the new view numbers attached to the VODs! I would love a way to transfer these view numbers to the attached highlight. As it stands now, we lose all those stats when the VOD expires. Those of us that highlight entire streams without the breaks, etc to save for future VOD watchers (for example, an entire series run of Silent Hill) have a difficult time explaining Twitch analytics to sponsors or advertisers.

    If I submit analytics of EXAMPLE GAME with 1k Twitch views, 1k YouTube (uploaded 24 hours after it airs on Twitch for exclusivity), 1k podcast version,…

  13. Hello,

    It would be nice to see the absolute date (25/08/2020) of a clip instead of the relative date (12 days ago)

    Regards,

  14. Let twitch auto change game name (and maybe title) based on what it was set on stream or info entered for uploaded videos. Vodcasts with 10th of games in one section creates mess

  15. I’m working on an SPA where one can watch VODs in sync, as if it was live.

    I noticed something weird on several videos: when started at a late position on Auto quality, the videos plays normally for a few seconds, then goes backward exactly when the quality is automatically changed.
    This does not happen by switching qualities manually.

    This is not easy to reproduce, as you need to be in Auto quality AND have the first selected quality to be low (e.g. 360p).

    Here are the steps I took with relative success to reproduce the issue:

    1. Go to this…

  16. We should be able to go to each other's channels and see the clips that that user has made. Or be able to search the user name in a clip menu, which will reveal all the clips made by that user.

  17. A feature that could be able to attach specific clips that are either originally clipped or edited all together. This feature would be great to express content on a larger level then just one video at a time. It would save a lot scrolling for more content for the viewer/follower. Also, with this, you could input a "starred" feature that brings a specific video or videos to the top of your feed. This will allow this best content to be seen instead of tucked away when more content is added.

  18. I often watch two or more streamers who host shows together on twitch. This means they will be talking on teamspeak and broadcasting this teamspeak conversation on each stream. This means you will have to mute one of both streamers if you want to watch both of em at the same time. If streamers could stream multiple audio channels, they could stream the teamspeak conversation on one track and their normal microphone/stream sounds on other tracks. Users could mute the teamspeak channel if they want to watch both streamers, and still hear whats going on if one streamer mutes himself…

  19. Since a year has already passed since the last time people talked about it here I’ll write again
    Everyone who makes clips will agree that it is inconvenient to look for a clip, you know the name, which was a long time ago, but to find it, you need to scroll a lot of clips

    Search by clip name in the clip manager, because if you made a clip a year ago, and you are looking for a clip in the manager on that channel on which you are looking for a clip, you should look for more than 1000…
