Ibai Llanos spoke with the CEO of Twitch, Dan Clancy, clarifying some doubts about the technical limitations of the platform, controversies over the Evening stream, and other aspects.
With Ibai Llanos there are always surprises. The Basque streamer usually leaves his followers stunned with exclusive interviews, interactive content and events. In memory are the World Balloons, the different editions of the Evening of the Year, or the King’s/Queen’s League.
Today’s surprise was a big one. From 16:00 Spanish time, Ibai Llanos has chatted with the boss (or CEO, to put it technically) of Twitch, revealing very interesting details.
You already know that Ibai has the best contract on the purple platform (owned by Amazon), and completely rules out going to Kick. Now, the Basque streamer believes that some things must change on Twitch.
A good example is the limit on viewer countsomething that pissed off Ibai (a lot), since he reported that Evening 3 had more simultaneous views than what Twitch showed.
We review some interesting details of the talk between the river y Dan Clancy, CEO of Twitchwhich can be seen in its entirety at this link.
Twitch’s problems, and an indecent proposal
The talk between Ibai and Dan Clancy has gone a long way. However, there are two key aspects that were discussed in the interview, which is already among the most viewed content of the day on Twitch.
For a start, River Llanos has asked him about the Year 4 Evening. It is already confirmed that there will be an edition in 2024, which could even be held in the renovated Santiago Bernabéu, Real Madrid’s stadium.
Ibai is happy on Twitch, but does not hide his anger at the technical problems and limitations of the Amazon platform. And so he has let Dan Clancy know.
The Basque streamer has presented an indecent proposal (as a criticism) to the CEO of Twitch, which has surely given him a few chills. What would happen if Evening 4 was not broadcast on the platform? What if it is broadcast openly on television?
Dan Clancy hasn’t gotten wet, answering the following: ”The reason you should stay on Twitch is because on Twitch we appreciate you and we are your home.”
Later, Ibai asks him about the irregularities in the viewer count during Evening 3. The Basque streamer reached a new record (3.4 million simultaneous viewers)but he believes there were actually many more.
The CEO of Twitch has explained that, when the platform becomes overloaded due to the large influx of users, Stream quality is cut for newcomers (so that so many bits do not have to be sent).
The problem is that, faced with such a large number of simultaneous users, Twitch’s servers could not apply these cuts, resulting in the entry of new viewers was blocked, randomly. Those who started the broadcast are not affected by this.
At least, it’s a reasonable explanation. However, Ibai Llanos believes that a platform with the size of Twitch should ensure a better structure, especially in this type of massive events.
Do you think that River Llanos Will you choose TV to broadcast the Year 4 Evening? It is a risky decision, especially seeing the failure of the King’s League on channel Four. What is clear is that Twitch has a lot of work ahead of it.
