Only Allow Logged In Viewers to Watch Stream
Allow creators to restrict viewing of their streams to logged in users only. As an option, this would help address hate raiders who get banned and continue to watch in incognito. Effectively preventing banned users from seeing the stream.
And, at the same time would give creators a simple tool to better control how their content is viewed. For example, if they were creating Mature content and wanted to add their own limitation on consumption.
Provide similar messaging to what is available on logged out Subscriber Streams which say "USER is streaming for 'registered users', Sign up now to join in: Watch the stream and participate in chat." Then a button to create an account.
no thanks, i dont want to log in on my tv
This is a very good Idea similar to this post here (which was locked so no more people could vote on it and made 5 years ago https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/297558-general/suggestions/17922226-allow-a-stream-to-only-be-viewed-by-logged-in-view)
I agree, and wish all streamers could have more control over who has access to a channels.
This tool would be a good step, or giving streamers the option to safe list websites for embedding, or also expanding on this to also include banned/blocker users so they are no longer be able to view a stream or access channel.
Love this idea! 👏
I see no point in this.
Please give streamers the option to only allow viewers who are logged in to watch the stream.
This achieves more privacy for streamers by blocking anonymous and public viewers. It also allows the streamers to block viewers from watching by banning them via username (just like chat).
