    I've recently started noticing this, too, in NA. The audio bitrate is definitely being downscaled, as verified by selecting various video qualities, manually downloading .ts chunks seen in the browser "Developer Tools" "Network" tab, and running ffmpeg -i on them:

    1080p (original): 160kbps
    720p60: 160kbps
    480p: 160kbps
    360p: 64kbps
    160p: 50kbps

    Recently (in the last month), 480p and above sound fine, but 360p and lower sound absolutely terrible (sounds "watery", like an old Fraunhofer MP3 encoder).

    The problem is that Twitch is auto-downgrading the "quality" to the 360p when the tab is obscured, and so I immediately hear the difference (when the browser does not interfere with the stream change) and get upset and re-expose the tab so that the quality improves again.

    I would much rather that this feature merely switch to the audio-only mode (like used by the mobile app) rather than trying to also stream 360p video that is only visible for a split second when the tab is unobscured. Or stop scaling the audio. Or select a quality that does not downgrade the audio.

    On 2/2, we will turn off Chants.

    While this feature was popular, we observed negative impacts to minutes watched for significant groups of creators.

    Experiments help us test new ideas in real time, and decide what to build next. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!
