  1. We need to be able to change the game in the making of clips and of already made ones. Right now there is no way to change choice of game when making a clip. When making one it takes one game from the main video. So for me and all of the other streamers who play multiple games during one stream, it therefore will show the wrong game in the clips we make from our videos. It deceive our viewers, as well as severely decrease our chance of new people finding our clips.

  2. Sometimes subscribers aren't fast enough to make clips, and currently can not make clips from VODS that are sub only.

  3. As an editor you can go on a past broadcast's page and delete it directly with the options menu, i would like for it to be the same with clips.
    You could even add a specific button to do that exactly how we can download Clips directly right now.

    It would be useful when a viewer shares a link to a clip that we want to delete but have no way of finding it in the clip manager with the link.

  4. 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…

  5. I think, it would be help to search clips on a channel, if there will be a search field on clips page.
    Another idea, the creator of the clip can add tags to clip, and anybody can find them.

  7. My video has been stuck processing for hours. I've tried multiple times to upload in Safari and Chrome and it always gets stuck processing. The video is a 1 hour stream in .flv format from OBS and is 1.8 gb. Please help

  8. YouTube's largest fail is that fact that they do not have a simple desktop app for the people who upload a ton of content. This app features should contain the ability to put in the information about each video. If you loose connection or site goes down there should be a "resume" button to continue the upload. Make it easier on the user & this and it will encourage everyone to upload more. aka a "Desktop Upload Manager app". Keep hitting those home runs Twitch! :)

  9. Twitch used to allow you to password protect your stream, but this feature was removed some time ago and I never understood why.

    There should be a way to allow only people I approve of to see my stream. Sometimes I want to share a game with my friends and only them. Yes, "not playing" exists, but that will still send live notifications and won't prevent unapproved people from watching.

  10. Channel Mods should be able to delete clips created by other non mod viewers.
    This could help out to delete clips which are inappropriate to the context or content created by the broadcaster

  11. Sometimes there's no point in creating highlights because other people have already created awesome clips. It would be really nice to be able to add clips to collections, so relevant videos, whether highlight or clip, can be viewed together.

  12. Sometimes the chat is important for the content of the clip. But when the vod get deleted after a while, these clips are useless because the chat content isn't there anymore. My idea is to save the chat content independent of the vod.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow users that Share Clips from streams on Social Media to Earn bits.This will entice others to use the clips feature, as well as creative more of a flood of "Twitch is a thing" advertising that we are lacking. Cheering is an amazing interactive feature that so many people participate in, lets give more people more ways to earn bits.
    -This would be a way to earn bits that is beneficial to the platform and streamers (not just Our Advertising Partners)
    -Would create a community participation effect. Someone can help the streamer in a way that is free to do…

  15. 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.

  16. So you know that one streamer you like to watch that's full time and divides him or her self between more than one game / category and goes 8+ hours each day and has tons of people clipping the channel's content?
    I personally think it's a bit frustrating to go digging through their dozens / hundreds of clips just to find that one you are looking for from such a long time ago. I think it would be a great addition if twitch allowed us more filters than just sorting by time created (by default, 24 hours, 7 days, 30…

  17. It is great that now we can edit clips right after creating them, but could you please just add the button "Edit" that would remain for the following 24 hours on the clip page? Sometimes I want to edit clips made in API, sometimes I just close the page where editing is still possible but then rewatch it on the next day and want to trim it just a bit (really inconvenient to go to the main video and make a new clip).

  18. Would there be a way to optimize the upload of videos from your end? It seems like both the Upload and Processing times of the new service seems greatly reduced. Also, not having a loading bar for the processing to take place is slightly irritating as someone who wants to use this feature.

  19. As it stands people are usually on twitch to watch a specific few streamers. If twitch implemented a tiktok style format for sharing clips, allowing people to upvote, comment, and share I think it would not only give people more reasons to scroll through twitch but would also allow people to find more creators that they might like to watch.

  20. I play through a lot of games on Twitch and instead of having a Highlight and a Past Broadcast... I delete the Past Broadcast and just keep the Highlight (as they last forever)

    The fact that I an unable to rerun highlights, obviously leaves me with very limited options. Please return the ability to rerun highlighted vods.
