  1. 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! :)

  2. 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:
    Shows error: https://www.twitch.tv/collections/OIpBrhiazhakWA?filter=collections

  4. 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.

  5. Allow VODS to get automatically uploaded to youtube for safe keeping as they get deleted from twitch after 60 days.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  12. Should be able to save clips other users have saved to your own My Clips page, so you can make a collection of your favorite clips even if you yourself didn't make them.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Hello!
    Realization of my idea will be very useful in case of some techical problems when OBS chrashes or some others causes. Because of this issues streamer should to restart his stream, therefore on Twitch will be a few videos which we aren't able to combine at this moment.
    That's why we need this possibility.
    Thank you.

  16. I would like the idea to schedule reruns to start at specific times. It would make it easier for creators who know they are going to be away from home (for example, at TwitchCon) or when managers of their dashboard can't start a rerun due to other obligations (for example, also at TwitchCon). The old premier feature allowed you to schedule uploaded content, a similar time system could be implemented for scheduling the current rerun feature.
    Could add two buttons to the existing rerun interface:
    - Start the rerun queue later. [Insert Drop-down list for date/time]
    - Start Rerun Now!

  17. I often miss a good opportunity to save a clip due to being too in the moment of a stream. But someone else will often save it and post it which is great! I'd love to be able to add there clip to my clips list.

  18. Since today (April 20th, 2017) or maybe even a few days (haven't used the feature since Monday), whenever I want to upload a thumbnail to one of my uploaded videos, I no preview appears in the thumbnail preview windows. If I want to save the video, I get an error message saying "Missing required parameter crop_x". I didn't check if this also applies to highlights/past broadcasts, but at least on the uploaded videos this error appears no matter how often I try.

  19. Currently when exporting a VOD to YouTube you can export it as a single file or split it into 15 minute segments if you YouTube isn't verified. What I am requesting is that an additional option is added to split the export into 12 hour segments since this is the maximum that YouTube will accept.

    The reason I would like this is that any of my streams that are over 12 hours are unable to be added to my YouTube unless I split them into 15 minute segments but this just doesn't make any sense.

    I'm sure I'm not the…

  20. After a recent Twitch website update it appears certain links to collections are now broken. Some time back all these worked but now only some do.

    Here are some concrete examples:

    Broken:
    https://www.twitch.tv/collection/Xu2cp82VPhaBZQ
    https://www.twitch.tv/collections/Xu2cp82VPhaBZQ?filter=collections

    These are the links used on the Twitch Dashboard and the /video page meaning internal links are also broken.

    Works:

    https://www.twitch.tv/cragsand/collection/Xu2cp82VPhaBZQ
