Quick Background: I've been streaming for about 11 days straight now, coming off of building a new PC and wanting to do this as a hobby - I wanted to be able to show past broadcasts/videos/clips of my gameplay, so that if people do happen to view my channel, they can see some past gameplay footage to see the experience of what transpires when I'm online...
The way that affiliate requirements are set up at the moment, with the 3.0 average viewer of 30 day period, for a person that streams 2-4 hours a night as a new streamer, is somewhat ridiculous IMO - I usually only have 1-2 people come in, and stick around for about an hour or so while we chat via chat messages/mic, but it seems that most games I've streamed (COD MW, Tera, Conqueror's Blade, Tom Clancy Division 2, WoW) have already established names in the community, thus it's hard to get a viewer count above 3+ persons on a nightly basis due to the market...
My point is when I'm not on stream, that I'd like to be able to post some "sample" type of gameplay - whether it's a past broadcast, or a 1-minute clip, so that if people do happen to see my channel, they can click on it and see the highlight of my playstyle/what I'm like as a gamer and potential streamer...
To have nothing on my homepage due to inability to upload or save clips, makes my channel feel empty/not worthy of returning for a new viewer.
My suggestion to this rant, would be to allow new accounts to either post a set limit of uploaded clips (say 30 seconds to 1 minute) to their channels, or allow for say, 3-5 day broadcast views from previous days (as in, be able to post recent broadcasts that get deleted after 3-5 days in channel) - this would atleast allow for people visiting the channel to see some content on homepage without having the streamer to be online.
Thank you for consideration.
