I'm just used to it and have all my followed channels on the sidebar so I can switch back and forth very quickly
And most of the people I follow on twitch don't stream on Youtube
"people are nicer" broooooooooooooo
I use Twitch for the chat and emotes. I admit to being a degenerate that spams alongside the hivemind.
Who tf reads chat while watching a game...Yes if u dont have friends IRL so you need to have a conversation withy yourself in the chat spamming emojis and copypastas.
Quality on Twitch is better (yt 1080p != real 1080p)
youtube on tv
twitch on PC because I like spamming sh1tcomments
youtube is upscaled, the 1080p looks very blurry compared to twitch and thats why i wont watch on youtube
Ofc Youtube. Looks better, sound better and no lag like twitch.
I really only use twitch because it has a faster and up to date showtime. Youtube stream tends to be a bit delayed, but I guess it doesn't matter if your watching for the game and not for the result earlier
I watch Fl0m and he doesnt stream on youtube but he streams the youtube stream so it looks a little better
i dont really care
youtube is better for me personally, but usualy i click for the 1st link on the matchpage with highest viewers number.
also im used to watching finals on twitch. i remember watching teams lifting the trophy with twitch layout in the background rather than youtube (i dont like fullscreen). for me twitch feels somewhat "special" cuz im watching youtube daily and twitch just for the tournaments
Youtube is ten times better there's no question about it
it's nearly impossible to find stuff on youtube imo. maybe im not proficient at it.
guess it's just boomer comfort to use twitch as i know the layout and have all my fav streams already mapped.
not all of the streams I watch are on youtube either.
youtube player way way way way way better
twitch chat? pfffff shit as everything on twitch
I watch on YouTube too. It’s just nicer that you can pause it and do something else for a bit and then skip the half time or in between map breaks
It's really useful to rollback the stream and put it on 1.5x speed in case you miss anything
i watch in theater mode and yt sucks hard
Imagine caring about twitch emotes, letalone actively using them in chat.
I prefer Youtube to Twitch because I cant stand the ads.
you can't replace twitch chat
i mean twitch used to be good, and has been getting progressively worse over the last few years
youtube is superior to twitch, +1
chat, other than that, youtube all the way
for chat's reaction to things
I dont want that guy stepping on the hose everytime i refresh stream
Twitch chat >>> youtube quality
im using twitch as tv in the background while i work
ESL wasn't streaming in 1440p before, i didn't know that changed for playoffs. i used Twitch when it was 1080p only before because the bitrate seemed slightly better and there was more clarity compared to YT. but i get ads every 2 seconds so definitely on YT now
Youtube is the superior streaming site, twitch is for kids who just grew used to it and can't accept it sucks, their best arguments are "chat" and "emotes", bruh.
youtube chat moves so slow that everyone knows im gay
I use youtube as much as possible. Twitch is greedy and destroys the viewing experience with their ads.
+1 yt is way less laggy and dont need to fix adblock every month
Twitch chat/emotes is HARD CARRYING the site. It's the only reason I still use it, the site itself and its policies are absolute ass.
the ability to rewatch certain scences is the main reason why i watch cs on youtube
YouTube takes up less bandwidth btw, bc Twitch uses Facebook's dogshit encoding.
YT will be much better than twitch soon because iirc they will implement AV1 support sooner.
AV1 quality is FAAAAAAAAAR superior to x264 no matter what preset you run.
iirc YT kinda has AV1 already but only for videos.
Then I'll switch for sure, x264 was always bad for streams because it's a codec made for movies, not video games.
yt is goated for reasons you stated, and cons arent cons at all
The stream quality is better on Twitch, I'll give Twitch that. 1440p on YT is not as sharp being oversampled on 1080p as 1080p is natively displayed on Twitch.
The ads are far worse on Twitch and more intrusive.
Theater mode is better on Twitch as it uses more of the available area.
Lag is far better on YT, which is probably related to why the stream quality is slightly worse.
Twitch's stream is about 5 seconds ahead of YT's stream.
YT natively has the ability to rewind a stream if you want to watch something again instead of waiting for a possible replay. Twitch needs 3rd party plugins to do this.
Twitch chat is just a cesspool, anyone who thinks different is just trolling. It adds nothing to the stream. YT's chat is actually people discussing the game. That is a product of how many people are watching the stream. Too many spammers on Twitch to discuss anything so it's spam or ignore.
All of that considered YT is better for the ads and availability on more devices, unless it's some niche thing like theater mode or you enjoy the unintelligible spam of Twitch chat. The quality difference is so minor you have to be aware of it to notice it.
YouTube on the TV i dont care the chat
Youtube is better for mobile users
And when internet is bad, Youtube also way better
Been watching pro on YouTube for years now. Anyone who still watches on twitch is an npc cuck
Twitch have better layout in theatre mode with chat open. That's the one thing I dislike about YT still.
YouTube is better, twitch just spams constant ads at every chance it gets and the chat is just..
twitch: i sleep
yt: real shit?
I'm pretty sure twitch has a lot better quality when comparing same resolutions
For literally chat spams.
But you actually can strike up meaningful convos there if you read between the lines
Yes youtube is better, no i wont switch away from twitch
Imagine using twitch chat tho lmao
youtube is about 5 seconds delayed comparing to twitch
I like to see that I'm not the only one frustrated. When I watch with friends, they are not that passionate, just taking it casually. On the other hand when I am watching CS I wanna become one with the match, and toxic twitch chat kinda helps with it and maybe streamers like ohne, sometimes he is annoying tho
