  1. There are some inherent severe bugs when it comes to Twitch collections that should get priority to be fixed. I think the reason very few streamers use this feature is because of how broken it is.

    ⠀1. The default internal links to collections shows an error.

    "Sorry. Unless you’ve got a time machine, that content is unavailable." error page which then redirects you to the first video of the collection. Changing the structure of the URL makes this not so, which makes me think its an old oversight/workaround that can easily be repaired.

    Examples how to replicate:

  3. Have markers on the progress bar for VODs showing when in the stream the Category and/or game was switched.

  4. 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! :)

  6. 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.

  7. When the stream windows is too small horizontally to show the chat on the right side, it would be better if instead it was placed (with an option to close it) below the video so that long vertical windows can still have video and chat.

    For example, this would allow to have the stream and chat when having two windows (one of them chat) side by side. Particularly useful when using a single monitor.

  8. 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).

  10. Broadcast date of past videos used to be shown with each video, but I can no longer find any date information. I have no clue when past videos I watch are from.

  11. When a channel starts a Vodcast followers shouldn't get an e-mail notification saying the channel is live. There should at least be an option to disable Vodcast notifications.

  12. Most of the time when I'm catching up on a stream series I want to watch the most recent vod and that vod alone. The option to stop twitch from playing every vod ever recorded from that point on if I don't manually stop it would be great. Most every other content platform has some form of sleep timer or autoplay on/off toggle. I'd really appreciate this and I can imagine it's not a super difficult thing to implement.

  13. 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.

  14. If I make a clip there is only one button to publish the clip.

    Suggestions:
    1. Abort button (I missclick sometimes and need to delete an unwanted clip manually)
    2. Save for later (If someone don't want to publish the clip yet or make it private)

  15. Had a frustrating experience as I keep getting hits and tips to add video/clips. I incorrectly assumed I could upload a video to achieve this, but I can't since I'm not affiliate status yet. Some sort of indication on the Upload video page would be nice. I eventually found the documentation about affiliate status and uploading in an unrelated document, but I had to dig to find it.

    Also there is a lot of "how-to" videos and docs on Twitch around uploading that is now out of date. Please update for better user experience, please.

  16. Add a comment function for highlights. Always interesting to hear what people think about one of your videos.

  17. If users exit the clip editor without selecting "Publish", a clip with the stream title is still saved. These clips create clutter and detract from browsing all channel clips. Ideally these unintended clips should not be saved/posted.

  18. Pressing , or . will go back 1 frame or forward 1 frame just like on youtube. Sometimes I want to see how many frames it took for someone to kill the streamer I'm watching on Valorant for example.

  19. YouTube lets you use the mouse wheel to change the player volume.

    I'd like Twitch to duplicate this functionality.

    Users should be able to hover over the player controls to show them then use the mouse wheel, when hovering over the volume slider to increase/decease volume

  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.
