On September 5, , the National Women's Hockey League announced a three-year broadcast rights deal with Twitch, covering all games and league events.

There were also complaints based that strikes were being issued on viewer-created clips, even where the streamer-created content was deleted.
On September 15, , Twitch signed a licensing agreement with the French performance society SACEM , allowing composers and publishers to collect royalties whenever their music is streamed in France.

Artifact , a major game by Valve , had lost most of its audience in just months from its release, and by late May , several popular livestreamers commented that the total viewership for Artifact streams had dropped to near zero.
In the days that followed, several streams started to make streams purporting to be Artifact gameplay but was trolling or other off-topic content.
Initially these new streams were playing with the viewers or were jokes, such as showing animal videos or League of Legends matches. After a few days, other Artifact channel streams appeared containing content that was against the terms of Twitch's use policy, including full copyrighted movies, pornography, Nazi propaganda, and at least one stream that showed the entirety of the shooter's video from the Christchurch mosque shootings.
The titles of such streams were usually presented to imply they were showing other content while waiting in queue for Artifact matches as to appear legitimate.

Twitch announced a new policy towards harassment and hateful content in December that would take effect on January 22, , aimed to better protect marginalized users of the service.
While the new policy is more strict, Twitch said that this also includes a larger sliding scale of remedies or punishments to better deal with edge cases, such as temporarily blocking one's channel for a short time rather than a full ban.
Among those words included the word "simp". While its slang origins have defined "simp" derogatorily as "a man who invests a lot of time and energy into women who don't want him", the term had become common on Twitch to use as a simple non-demeaning insult related to men being nice to women on the service or simply to refer to a person to undying loyalty to another, and its ban raised criticism by streamers and long time viewers.
Twitch, in response, clarified that penalties for using these terms would only be enforced if they were being used in harassment of other users.

In September , Twitch announced that it would test automated mid-roll advertising on streams, which cannot be controlled by the streamer. Twitch CEO Emmett Shear has stated a desire to support a wide variety of platforms, stating that they wanted to be on "every platform where people watch video".
Users can stream to Twitch from Windows , Mac , or Linux operating systems, either with stand-alone software like OBS , through a platform like EA 's Origin software ,  Ubisoft 's Uplay ,  or Valve 's Steam.

Resolution refers to the size of a video on a screen, and frame rate refers to how often animation frames are sent to Twitch. Full HD resolution is typically p, 60 frames per second fps.
Streaming at a higher resolution like p requires a higher bitrate, and a higher frame rate takes more encoding power. If you have the bandwidth and encoding power to stream at p, 60 fps, great!
If not, try one of the recommended settings below to optimize your video quality and stability. Join the video team mailing list to hear news about the latest developments on our video broadcasting platform, or possibly some new upcoming betas.
Together with NVIDIA RTX, you can get the best performance and superior image quality. Of course you do! But the best video quality does not always come from maxing out all of your broadcast settings.
Twitch Inspector to the rescue! Our guidelines are set up in a way to find the right balance between visual quality and playback quality, where both the broadcaster and the viewer can benefit from.
