  1. I will give an example 2 overwatch players playing Together as dpss one of them own his chanel with very high viewers he wants to inclode his friend as a stremer so he gives him a code that allows him to stream with him at the same time at the same chanel and the viewers can swap between them when ever they want without any porblems.

  3. As a creator, viewer and developer not actively using Twitter there is no proper chance to retrieve latest changes the Twitch platform is undergoing.

    In order to improve this one way would be to provide a simple web-page with a change-log and a RSS feed for the "posts" on that page. That way for example people would have seen the change to the schedule announced earlier this week in their feed-readers or on that web-page.

    The way it's currently announced I need to try to make sense from the @TwitchSupport Twitter-feed (which isn't easy as it isn't chronologically sorted and…

  4. hello I would like you to add additional 1 or 2 overlay for those who stream because I am annoyed for the multigaming streamer. that at least two overlay is activated on the screen by passing the mouse because its fact can only one overlay its facts can I find. for example when streaming destiny or fornite or games that have multiple overlay. in addition I cannot put the twitch prime overlay in addition to the destiny 2 overlay. I will be well that we can put both. thank you for adding his and have a nice day

  5. For creators who maybe want to keep their channel on the smaller side or just stream to friends, the option to set your channel to private or invitation-only so that only those with the link/code can view it, would be nice.

  6. Wouldn't it be cool if Twitch integrated VR technology to create actual virtual communities Similar to VR Chat, but it's like...You put on the headset and are placed into Twitch Town and you can head over to a streamers virtual community.

    You can customize the community and you could also use a level up program associated with affiliate and partner status. Maybe even a tier system with each Category to facilitate growth of a streamers stream and community.

    You could also use paid features, but that would need some ironing out.

  7. As of current, Twitch doesn't properly define what it considers a "small streamer". This makes it hard to actually understand when features it develops are actually for small streamers.

    Please accurately define and categorise what is meant by "Small Streamer" and, if possible, separate out "Small Partners", "Affiliates" and "New Streamers" when discussing new features and support.

  8. Music is integral to the social-experience. It creates an ambience for an intimate setting, helps the tone of the stream take form to more consistently help people fit in with a streamers' chat, and helps promote artsists.

    With that in mind, and MANY channels dedicated to music on your platform, you could, realistically, call upon creators to send in submissions for music they created with legally purchased licenses. Since established labels won't let music be enjoyed, make your own.

    Other places with such content creation are Bandcamp and Soundcloud, both of which would fall head-over-heels if they could partner with…

  9. So I was just thinking about YouTube play buttons, and then Twitch popped into my head. Then, I combined the two and came up with Twitch Trophies. Don't know if this suggestion has been posted here before, and I apologize if it has, but this might be pretty good. What if Twitch were to give out trophies/awards for every new Partner or any other big milestone? I think it would be pretty cool. Thank you for giving me the privilege to submit a suggestion.

  10. So I have been thinking a lot lately about the small streamers that make Twitch's core. Now with big streamers, they are able to buy equipment and the newest games very easily due to their immense viewer count. While there is nothing wrong with big streamers, this leaves the small streamers trying to pay rent, or food, unable to purchase these new games and get the money that follows. I was thinking, what if I could start a charity for these smaller streamers that gifts them the newest game or some new equipment so that they can still worry about…

  11. I know this is a very unpopular viewpoint. A lurker doesn't contribute to the stream in any way. They sit in chat, don't watch videos or they will watch the video but with the sound muted, which doesn't count as a view session on a video on demand feature or livestream.

    I can't tell which is a lurker and which are bots. I assume all lurkers are bots and should be banned.

    Come up with A.I. as an extension to download to find bots / lurkers in chat, give them warnings to either leave the channel permanently, speak up in…

  12. Twitch should let streamers pay to stream. The greater the range, the higher the fees. So it would make sense! Better than bombing viewers with advertising.
    Maybe you can also bring this in connection with licenses and amazon music.

  13. Hello,

    I propose a way to allow nature streamers affiliate if they have good viewership during the day / night hours when their streams are more active.

    As a new creator I have a hard time reaching the required average viewers. My stream is of my fish tank, which I stream 24/7. The problem is that during the day when the lights come on is when I get viewers, at night you can not see much and then I loose viewers. However, both count towards my average viewership.

    I have a feeling this affects many nature / animal streams and…

  14. Videogame Streamers are already obligated to set their game as the category they are streaming. When a game is selected, have a link appear to show that game's company/producer's streaming policy.

    The Streaming Policies would outline the rights a game company/publisher gives to streamers regarding streaming/monetizing their content, and whether they give (or can give) permission to use music from their games.

    This would necessitate putting together a knowledge base of streaming policies from the thousands of game companies and publishers out there. A daunting task, but the threat of DMCA strikes are daunting for streamers, so a heavyweight in…

  15. It should be good to ad some basic overlay and notifications directly to TWITCH for those like me who have not yet a good computer configuration to see directly on the game screen the messages instead of looking on the TWITCH application or on the computer.

  17. In Germany we need a broadcast license (Rundfunklizenz).
    If you don't have it, you may have to pay a fine of up to 500,000 euros.

    This license is not required if you cannot technically reach more than 500 viewer.

    My wish would be to limit my stream to 499 viewers. Only in this way can new streams have a chance.

  18. Your Terms Of Service is censorship in areas where females and those who identify as female live outside of the United States of America, where showing 'nipples' is not considered frontal upper body nudity in the eyes of the Canadian Constitution, and human rights. It was considered sexist to keep women tethered to a rule that did not apply equally to men in all conditions.
