There's also a minimum of a 30 second delay iirc, or at least there was. That's pretty retarded.

But yeah, twitch is complete shit. It's unfortunate that they're the main streaming platform.

twitch has improved some things, but otherwise, it's gone to shit, mostly.

Isn't the stock 30 second delay because the twitch servers are rendering the stream source into the X different "quality options"?

Possibly, but I'm pretty sure you can have less of a delay if you get a premium partnership or something.

Um, dunno if something change from the last time I streamed, but there was no delay before. Actually, if you wanted a delay, you had to pay.

The delay most people see is because of the time it takes to encode stuff, not because they add artificial delay. It's pretty much present on any streaming site. (depending on their servers, your ISP's servers a bit and your computer speed)

well, that's not a big deal, you always had like 15s (more or less) delay anyway.
this just makes it so people actually know the exact amount of delay that things have.

but yea, people don't like to be limited. especially if it was not limited before.

The problem is 30 seconds really messes with streamer-to-chat interaction (which is a huge part of being successful on twitch). It's not impossible, but people like asking questions inbetween games and with a 30 second delay you now have to time when to ask your question because by the time it gets to the streamer, he/she will already be in a game or afk or busy with something else. It also sucks as a streamer because a 30 second delay can really confuse you if you're not constantly reading chat. I've seen many cases of this with streamers having no idea what people are talking about due to the delay.

I swear you can have less of a delay if you get some partnership with twitch. Streamers have mentioned it before.

I didn't say you can't get less delay. Smile

Also, streamers have learned to deal with delay. It's not a big deal. Even I'm used to it.
Yes, having absolutely no delay would be ideal, but that's not the case.
