Viewer Count BUG
I still believe there is an issue with viewer count, even with all the information you have re tweeted recently about such subject, i still feel like i have an in accurate view count due to how many users are in the chat list. Had family viewing on yesterdays stream but were not showing up as a viewer, was testing this morning and i know for sure the viewer count is wrong, I have 3 people in the house watching and chatting, all have accounts. not one registers as a viewer, had this issue since i started streaming on Twitch, Note: Streaming Directly From Xbox One using Twitch App
While I understand that Twitch wants to limit bots from one IP address, it makes it infuriating to try to have friends and family that want to support you be blocked/ not shown as viewers.
Same here, Few dedicated friends ACTIVELY chatting in chat, view count 1 for hours, Only went up after got raided by friends to attempt to fix issue which it did, Managed to pull a average of 2 out of a 10 hour ******* stream, I've now just sent my 3rd ticket in about viewer count issue, Will probably get closed without response again :/
I stream to twitch from OBS, I am having the same issue. I will have friends and viewers contact me for stream times, be up and streaming, and see 4 people in the chat talking. It shows 1 - 2 viewers. Offline i will take in feedback to see if anyone was not actually watching the stream. Everyone is watching. Also tried to run a test stream to see what was going on. Even with 4 people trying to watch the stream and rarely use chat it was still bouncing around on how many viewers were there, and that was during a test stream to adjust and find the issue. I do hope this gets resolved soon.
I'm having the same problem with the viewer count not matching what viewers are in chat. It seems that more popular streamers have an accurate view count.
I have this same issue for months now, I have family and friends watch my streams whenever I stream, upwards from 7-9 people at a time, and I am lucky if 2 out of those 7-9 show up in my stream. Even though all have their own accounts, are logged in and online, and are actively chatting in my stream. Can't get affiliated because I am stuck on 2.79 for months now.
