  1. Do not implement a call feature in the sidebar.

    Do not implement a call feature that is on by default.

    If you implement a call feature, make it channel-specific (as it is currently) and make it OPT-IN (as it is currently.)

  2. Hi all,

    Guest Star is a tool we're developing, which makes it easy, safe & fun for streamers to invite guests (viewers or other streamers) to join your stream. We have recently released an early version of the tool to a select group of streamers to help us shape the final product experience via testing the technology and providing feedback on the experience. To learn more about Guest Star, please visit our help article (https://link.twitch.tv/GuestStarFAQs); and for those with early access, please share your feedback on here on UserVoice!

  3. With my vmix setup, I bring guest browser sources in directly and monitor them through vmix directly... but I'm getting duplicate audio from the Backstage browser window. Since I need to manage guests with that window, I can't close it, but if I mute them, it mutes them everywhere, so it would be cool if you could do a "soft" mute for Backstage, so guests still are heard in OBS/vmix sources, but not in the managing backstage side. I was able to achieve this by changing the OUTPUT audio setting for my browser to something random, but then I can't…

  4. 5 guests is probably great for talk/panel shows, but e.g. a raid party in Final Fantasy XIV is 8 people (i.e. 7 guests) so two members still need to be in Discord which then means you need to mute the guest star audio in favour of Discord audio and have audio sync issues.

  5. 2 requests:
    -Guest Star currently sends audio output to the default device instead of the comms device. Have an option to send the audio to specific devices

    -Create an OBS link for the host to share out their camera feed

  6. I don't know what is on the list of planned features for guest star but the ability to screen share and furthermore have that screen share as another source would allow people to show the camera of the streamer (real camera or obs virtual camera for vtuber/pngtuber or other stuff) as well as their gameplay allowing for a good old console feeling of watching your friends do games multiplayer.

    I think this has great potential for collabs!

  7. Chrome is a resource hog and Opera GX (the only other browser that works with Guest Star) isn't much better. One of my guests maxed out her CPU running a game, VTube Studio and Opera GX, and so had to go back to Discord. It would be nice if there was a less resource intensive alternative.

    If every streamer was given a stream key the first time they use guest star then they could use OBS or any other existing software which is going to be much lower usage and it makes it easier, and would also allow for things…

  9. Currently when using Guest Star the audio we get from the guests stream is really limited in terms of quality. While voice is slightly affected, other sounds (instruments, games, etc.) sound rather bad. The codecs used don't seem to work well for this kind of sound.

    The current workaround is to use 3rd party apps to get decent voice quality, but this requires additional sources switching when swapping scenes/guests.

    Improvement suggestion: allow creators to select a high quality option for the audio streaming.

  10. Bring streamdeck support to guest star to allow streamers to quickly switch to
    Specific guests with one push, if possible, auto map each guest profile pic to that corresponding streamdeck button

  11. It would be interesting if you as a Guest, could share your screen to the broadcaster, but only those the broadcaster permit sharing screen.
    Also it would be fun if you as a Guest, could copy the url code from the broadcaster camera.

  12. When you're the host of a Guest Star Stream and you can add the Browser Source URL for your Guests camera and mic. There should be a option for you to give your Browser source URL to your guests that have your camera and mic so they can add it to their streams. The exact same way we add their camera to our stream by copying the profile URL, they should be able to do the same and copy the host's Browser source URL to be able to add the host's camera as well as the other guests. Having a…

  14. I first reported this issue with Twitch Support, but was directed here:

    I have used the Guest Star function several times over the past few weeks, and have really enjoyed doing joint streams with fellow streamer friends. However, we have had several reports from members of our communities that when they were watching the stream from mobile, they were unable to chat, or do channel redemptions, and even the video was freezing. However, they could hear the audio, and were watching on low latency mode. When they were able to access their desktop, and for anyone else watching on desktop,…

  15. It would be nice to have the option to have slots auto-fill with guests when a guest is removed from the Guest Star instead of having to click and move to a specific slot.

    Example: I have 2 guests on Guest Star for a "call in advice" type show, once the conversation has completed with Guest 1, I would remove from the Guest Star and the guest in slot two would auto-move to slot 1.

  16. I've been streaming on and off for nearly 4 years (consistent for past 2), and there are so many competing live-streaming platforms, mostly regional ones that have a feature that lets between 2 and 4 streamers engage in a so-called "Battle", which can easily be expanded upon the Stream Together feature. Let's learn about how it can work on Twitch. For purposes of this idea, i'm using the term "Player Knockout" as a codename, rather than reflecting on any forward-facing name should this come to implementation.

    -When and if all streamers joining through Stream Together are afffiliate at minimum, the…

  17. I had another streamer join the stream together but they weren't live but were joining as a guest, I could hear them and everything was going through fine but they were no longer able to see the stream content after joining and we couldn't figure out how to solve this bug. So perhaps the waiting room dashboard could also have a box for the currently being streamed content (of any streamer involved who is currently live) as options of sources, so anyone participating can view a stream if that is required for the content, but perhaps even be an additional…

  18. Currently as a host you select your speakers once. However, if I broadcast those speakers to my stream, the audience can hear the guest, regardless if they are live or backstage.

    Currently Im handling this by having a single guest, and turning off my guests speaker in xsplit until theyre live. However that wont work for having some guests backstage, and some LIVE. The next workaround is to have the guests backstage muted in StreamTogether, however that doesn't allow me to hear if they are ready to go live or have other backstage problems.

    Instead, please have two speakers for…

  19. When a streamer hosts a guest star who is on their same connection the video quality is extremely low for that guest star, while on the guest star's own channel the video quality is fine. See here starting around the 3hr30m mark: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1906948974

    TheStreamerOfOz joins in and has terrible video quality.

  20. My guest stars green screen shows up as black on my obs. I want to use their green screen on my stream so we can see more of the game that we are playing instead of just their green screen showing up as black. Basically I want their green screen to be functional on my stream as well as theirs.
