Full 1080p quality. That would be lovely.

    Please, update the app, the mixer is coming with everything trying to make the streamers migrate to it, but we like the twitch, we have friends and a public in the twitch, but it seems that xbox is only caring with the mixer streamers ..

    Do not do this to us, we love the platform and we want to see it grow, and help us grow.

    Thank you

    The twitch app really needs a total overhaul, it is outdated in every way, we have only one streaming app and that doesnt work well at all, it lack of fluidity and option.
    The app simply need to be redone honestly. and dont tell me about Beam streaming if it's not compatible with twitch or other like youtube for exemple, they should at least do the streaming services like the ps4 (and it really pains me to said this)

    I'd be more than happy to stream with 2500 kbps at least. 2000 simply isn't enough, and since I live in Sweden - the "recommended settings" (1729 kbps) doesn't make my 500/50 fibre connection justice since the app is pinging servers in the US, while I'm streaming at 3500kbps no problem on my PC against twitch servers in Europe... The people who designed this app really should return to the drawing board since they have A LOT to fix!

    The problem is that the streaming quality through x1 over twitch is really blocky unclean picture with artifacts, no x1 stream has a clear picture. Microsoft twitch is for many people a daily used app. It would be nice if you look into the problem and fix it. Because the streamed picture through the xbox one is having artifacts in every x1 stream no matter how good the upload speed is. Please it's a basic every day used feature.

    I like this idea because usually, twitch looks horrible on the XBOX and the thing is that on my profile, I can't go higher than 2,000kbps.

    Yes, and for godsakes get rid of the "broadcasting to X viewers" notification when going fullscreen. It's intrusive enough just being there, but in the middle of the screen nonetheless?

    YES PLEASE. I dont want to have to save for a dedicated streaming PC just to get 1080p streaming captures on console!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i testing my internet speed: 30 down / 2.10-2.40 up
    but twitch app is max. 1.7 bandwith
    why? :(

    This would be great but first iv noticed that im not the only one who has problems with their Xbox and Twitch, i cant use 2500kbps even the 1400kbps dont work for when i want to Stream my games, and its not the internet connection, its a lag in between the too. if this could be fixed that would be awesome.

    I am on a fast connection, some of those vids look awful to watch, really look blocky, it's either the app or the persons connection is slow, no fault of there own.

    This isn't something that can happen, due to Twitch restrictions. Only partners (streamers approved by the Twitch partnership program) are allowed to stream above 720p. So it is not something Xbox/Microsoft can work out. Also, a lot of big streamers still stream in 720p even though they can (again due to partnership) stream a higher resolution. The reason for this is that alot of viewers will have a hard time watching a 1080p stream, compared to a 720p one. So you would be excluding a lot of viewers if you were to stream 1080p.
