    We apply IP bans in Chat based on users' Moderation actions in certain cases. We don't currently plan to publicize the logic we use because we think it would make it easier for bad actors to bypass the restriction.

    Hi, I know that this is a very late response, but we’re hoping to find time to address this issue later this year. There are a few steps we’ll have to take to solve this problem in a way that will work for all streamers, but we understand the severity of the issue.

    Seconded. I personally save the chat manually through my chatbot app, so I can use it for editing purposes down the line.

    It would be invaluable to have the option to directly download the chat content from a VOD, and even to upload chat replay to uploaded videos, and clips.

    I think that the "muting" process on VODs shouldn't be automatic. It would be nice if we got an info window indicating what needs to be muted and why, thus allowing us to properly manage the situation, either by issuing an appeal, or by downloading the VOD and editing it to remove the offending content.

    I personally would have no trouble just redubbing myself to remove background game music, which is what usually causes muting. But can't re-dub if I lose the original recording.

    OBS Studio already supports multiple channels for local recording, so I guess if the Twitch ingest supported multiple channels, it could be easily implemented.

    Aside from being able to mute Copyright-violating content selectively, I second the idea that multiple channels would be valuable for viewers wanting to selectively choose what to listen to.
    For example, I might want to listen to the streamer's voice, but the game they are playing is too noisy, so it would be cool to be able to disable the game audio.

    I think it would be nice if streamers get to choose whether to multi-channel or not (just like when setting up audio channels for local recording in OBS), the Twitch player would only need to offer a combo-box for viewers to choose what to enable/disable.

    And if the option to individually edit/delete/upload audio channels on VODs was added, that would open many possibilities, from removing Copyright infringing parts of the audio manually, to uploading replacement tracks, or maybe even adding commentary tracks, or dubbing to other languages... But that's maybe going too far right now XD.

    I'd like to point out that this feature would be very useful for those of us who speak languages that are not gender-neutral.

    For example, when streaming in Spanish, the line:

    "Hello <username>, welcome to my channel!"

    Ends up being:

    "¡Hola <username>, bienvenida/bienvenido/bienvenides a mi canal!"

    Knowing how to address people who choose to use this option (it should be optional, of course) would be helpful.

    I've been trying to do this on my own by throwing a bunch of emojis on my stream titles and explaining their meaning on my panels, as well as having visible warnings on-screen, but just like with chat rules, if viewers don't have to actively acknowledge this information via some sort of pop-up, most won't notice.

    As others have commented, I would propose that not only categories have "de-facto" content warning tags, but that we can, on a per-stream basis, choose which tags to apply, just as we can change categories or the stream title.
    So, if I'm streaming something innocuous, like say, Minecraft, and decide to switch to a violent game like say, DOOM, I'd love to be able to manually add the "gore/violence" content warning to my stream (assuming the category doesn't already include it).

    It would also be fantastic if viewers could filter by these tags, so if, say, I have photosensitive epilepsy, I can filter out all streams with that content warning.
    Not to mention that this would be invaluable for parents wanting to better help their kids with the content they watch.

    This also could help greatly with very broad categories like "Just Chatting", which desperately need more fine-tuning.

    I personally try to emulate this functionality by throwing a bunch of emojis on the stream title, with their meaning explained in my panels, as well as visible warnings on-screen, but since these require viewers already knowing how they work, it won't help people joining for the first time (or people not reading the panels, which tends to be most people).

    Ideally, I would love to be able to select a series of flags for my content when setting up the stream, just like setting the title and category, that would result in a pop-up for viewers joining the channel warning them of the content.

    It would also be awesome if users could filter by these tags. If I had photosensitive epilepsy I would love to be able to filter out streams marked as "dangerous" for me. This filter could just show a warning icon on the stream thumbnail instead of hiding them completely.

    Relevant Update  ·  Twitch responded

    We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.


    Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.


    In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.

    We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

    First of all, my full support to people being harassed, and I second the need for tools to manage the problem.

    My personal need for this functionality is different, and I'd like to point it out:

    On my streams I often have adult-oriented content, not "porny", but rather adult subject matters in the conversation, as well as games with content I don't think younger audiences should watch without parental supervision/consent.

    I do my best to clearly signal this content, not only by enabling the "mature audiences" switch, but by adding a 18+ tag to the stream title, as well as icons indicating the content (explained in my panels).
    I even have a glowing neon 18+ sign on-screen and even more warning labels.

    None of this prevents kids from popping up (and kids being kids, it probably encourages some of them), and none of this prevents parents from being concerned when their kids bring up the funny thing that twitch person said.

    Since kindly (or not so kindly) telling kids that they shouldn't be watching without their parents knowing doesn't work, I sometimes need the ability to not just ban them from chat, but to make sure they can't watch (parents won't care that the chat is disabled if they can hear my ramblings about adult subject matters on the speakers).

    And I'm sure there are many more use cases where being able to block people from viewing the stream is desirable.

    I understand that this is not a trivial issue to solve, given how people can just make sockpuppet accounts or the like. Just wanted to share another scenario where this functionality might be needed.

    I'm developing lightweight, simple to deploy, client-side alert notifications.
    Using intermediary external webservers adds both network overhead as well as extra complexity.

    For those of us who want to host multi-language channels, the only option right now is to type all the information at once (for example, in the bio), or have extra panels with the same information repeated in different languages.

    It would be great if we had a settings option to select which languages our channel will display (like a multi-selection combo box).

    Then, once selected, this could enable a drop-down combo box on all data-entry fields in the channel (bio, panels, etc...) so we can manually add the language-specific data.

    Users browsing our channel would then read the entries that match their selected language, if available.

    Example:
    1) I set my channel to be in "English" and "Spanish"
    2) I set "English" as the default (maybe a checkbox?)
    3) On my bio text box form, I get a drop-down list with both these languages
    4) Selecting in the drop-down "English" I type into the box "This is my english bio!"
    5) Selecting in the drop-down "Spanish", I get an empty box and type "¡Esta es mi bio en español!"
    6) When a user that has "English" as their set language reads my bio, they'll read "This is my english bio!"
    7) When a user that has "Spanish" as their set language reads my bio, they'll read "¡Esta es mi bio en español!"
    8) Users with any other language will get the default english text

    This setting could also be used when searching for channels, so users of both languages can find the channel!
    It could even be applied to the schedule so you can have language-specific schedules!

    It would be great if all data fields in the channel (bio, panels, even uploaded graphics) could be made multi-language by having a combo box allowing language selection, so we can manually type in (or upload) the translations.
