  2. I would like to propose that there be an alternative to affiliate we could subscribe to as a content maker. I draw on what turbo and prime's features are, while wishing for features like channel points, reruns, longer expiration queue, and the option to not show ads or show them less - I think this would be worth a monthly Service to sub to when your channel is education or open source making focused. I would subscribe to it in order to take off ads or gain features that are currently unlocked at affiliate only. Just because, with education we…

  3. I love that the banner at the top of chat can show one or the other, but I can never fully decide which to display. It would be great if it could slowly transition between the two every couple of minutes or so. Thanks!

  4. So, perhaps a stream category to start off with a little ham radio emoji, I think the perfect loophole that is not a translator and is a pretty decent resume to "onboard" certain choice broadcasts is to backseat a LIVE RADIO online stream, or broadcast.. I'd say acquire those copyrights, but I don't know that there is any language ever written about it. So how it would help the community is that, there's a wall missing with live radio broadcasts; you don't see anybody... There can be 100s of thousands listening at a time, and your viewer count doesn't translate.…

  5. With Soundtrack by Twitch it's very easy to have a fully separate audio track that will apply to clips and the VOD. My request as a viewer would be to have a toggle in the advanced player options so you can listen to the VOD audio instead, if available. Example: https://i.imgur.com/1k0Ap1W.png

  6. Allow streamers and viewers to watch more than one stream at a time. I am currently unaware of any platform that offers this. This will allow communities to grow even faster and set twitch apart from the competition.

  7. Bot Accounts have been a rampant issue that is being addressed as of late, and their necessity to Content Creators makes them a tricky thing to address.

    My suggestion is to allow Creators Affiliate and above to submit Bot Account applications. This would solve a few challenges:

    • By not allowing less than an Affiliate to create the account, individuals who would create them for trolling would have to actually spend time completing the path to affiliate in order to even create one. New creators would of course need to use the built in Twitch Moderator, but once you become an…

  8. Give us the ability to receive only viewers that have verified their account, or enabled 2FA. Require a birthday to be set for said accounts and allow the streamer to set the minimum allowed age.
    Currently we only have the ability to label our stream with "Mature" and require a viewer to click on "view stream", this does not actually keep out inappropriate audiences this only protects Twitch's liability and that of the streamer, which while being a good thing can be so much better.
    Not only would this help in regards to protecting minors, this would also protect streamers…

  9. Have the ability for viewers of a stream to choose what they can and cannot see on the screen. If a viewer would like to see a song playing overlay then it can be toggled on and off by the viewer or if someone does not want to see face cam then it can be disabled provided that the streamer enables these features.
    This would allow for streams to be clean with no external layers or for the stream to include things like alerts or if chat is visible on screen. This would be viewer specific allowing for everyone to…

  10. Would it be possible to implement an option on the viewer side to have only the streamer's voice and not the general sound of the stream?
    Let me explain.
    It would be necessary that when a stream is broadcast via OBS (or other) that a second stream is sent, a sound channel that would contain only the streamer's microphone.
    Of course, this feature should also be implemented on the streaming software side. (OBS, XSplit etc..)
    What is the use of this feature?
    During live shows where several streamers are playing together, we sometimes want to use the "multitwitch" function to…

  11. Have you ever, in a stream with multiple streamers, saw one streamer you dont like and you really don't want to hear his voice or what the s*** he is talking about. It could be very cool to have something, like an overlay, where you can mute this streamer and enjoy the stream without hearing him talk.
    That could be a very good feature and make enjoyable streams with multiple streamers, even if one is unbearable. I dont know how it could be made, maybe by asking streamers to use a special vocal plugin ? With a Partnership with Discord…

  13. Right now the only options we have for flagging stream content is to mark our stream as for adult audiences only. There are times when my stream isn't necessarily 18+, but it might contain harsh language or a violent game or what have you. I would like to be able to communicate that to my audience via something akin to TV Parental Guidelines (TV-G, TV-PG, TV-MA, etc) on a stream-by-stream basis, rather than having a blanket on/off switch for what is and is not an adult stream. I think parents who have kids who watch Twitch would also appreciate being…

  14. When a streamer is playing game with webcam, it's always fixed in one spot on the screen, often blocking some parts of the game.
    If the watcher could move the webcam around as he likes it would be nice!

  15. Pre-roll video after the pre-roll Ad

    This is important to discuss. With the way the web is with not only sponsored content that needs to be clear and unavoidable for all viewers on the platform that need to know that something is sponsored. We need this feature to protect creators from US law makers that enforce and create policy changes month by month. I would like a feature that after the pre-roll ad. I can place a short video before the stream appears informing the viewer that the stream has sponsored content. That the stream is not safe for audiences…

  16. I think twitch should come up with a way for viewers to earn currency of some sort to donate to the stream for them to get more viewers similar to how mixer does with what they call sparks. I feel it would be nice for small streamers.

  17. Create a filter to see streamers of a single country and also give streamers option to place a "Button" to show their country of origin and that same button when clicking on it will link to the Browse section of the chosen country and/or open a new tab doing the same process.

  18. As per title.

    Subs are generally granted more leniency in chats. It would be practical to identify the subs that genuinely financially contribute with Paid and Prime subs over the free gifted subs.

  19. My friend and I are streaming content together. Only one of us needs to share their screen each time, but we'd like to also show the other person's face (we like to feel included!).
    Right now we're doing this by calling on Discord and screensharing the remote person's face. Could we please have a feature to enable this natively in Twitch (having two people sending to the same stream at once)? It would be super cool, especially as we play a lot of co-op games.

  20. In a similar way as to how you can add the game you are playing to twitch, so others can see, maybe have a section that you could type in the username of a fellow twitch user and underneath the video it has a Guest section.
    So for those that stream that bring other streamers in, such as podcasts, or friends doing co-op streams they can promote their friends who also stream on twitch.
    That way people who are entering the stream can check who the guests are and also click on their names and be linked to that person's…
