Cut out specific parts of VOD
One of my biggest DMCA concerns is having to delete an entire VOD because of a few minutes of music. Is Twitch working on a way to cut out specific parts of VODs so that we don't have to sacrifice the entire stream?
This is actually something Youtube offers creators, they mute specific parts of the VOD and give you the option of cutting out the specific part that got claimed. Unfortunately, the highlighter doesn't give you this ability, because it sometimes means you have to cut out parts of gameplay that don't contain the music if you use it. Why not add a separate feature similar to the highlighter that will let you listen for the music that got cut (which will be highlighted by red on the timeline) so you can cut it out until the point where the music stops? This way you can cut out the copyrighted music but keep the rest, because if you try using the highlighter it will corrupt the video if you try doing the same.
Option to mute parts with DMCA music is better than remove video. Unless voice is important, then remove whole part.
Hi, this is called a highlight. It has existed for some time.
Honestly, I'd love to see Twitch take the same approach as YouTube with regards to copyright-claimed music and VoD editing.
If there's a claim that is warranted, offer a beta way for Partners and Affiliates to remove JUST the offending music from the VoD. This is my single biggest win in using YouTube for VoDs instead of Twitch.
They've been muting at risk (of dmca) parts of VODs for a long time. Its just not able to get 100% of songs.
But I would like to see the plans for improving it or offering more options like you suggested with cutting out specific parts of vods.
