A bit dream crushed

Me and my cousin callum went to do a live stream on the channel RED MASTER MIND and it was stopped because of copyright claim in the live stream and we were a bit confused to why it was stopped and we tried to make a new live stream but it said “Due to Community Guidelines strikes or copyright issues, you cannot live stream at this time” we were very concerned if we had copyrighted a video on our channel without realising and it was our very first live stream on our channel so we were quite spooked thinking we did something extremely wrong on our channel to cause this creator if you are reading this could you please help us with are live stream and give us a second chance to do one we were very pleased until this moment in the live stream your site is good but me and my cousin were very concerned about this.

New bugs in latest update?

The app is mostly good, however in the last few days (since the newest update) I have experienced a few bugs that have caused me to have to reinstall the app or close and reopen it. The first was strange stutters in video and audio whilst watching anything, not related to internet connection or resolution. I had to delete the app and reinstall it for it to become comfortable watching videos, however even now I still witness a few occasional stutters in playback that I have never seen before during normal playback.

The second bug is around the comments section. Sometimes comments will not post regardless of how many times to press the send button. Even if you delete the draft and open a new one you are still unable to post a comment, and changing video does not fix it. Was only able to fix this after closing and reopening the app. These aren’t massive issues but I feel like there are a lot of these little bugs that come and go over time and can be a bit of an annoyance when trying to watch stuff.

Overall the app has good functionality, and 4K HDR videos can look great on an iPad, but I would like a bit more polish in regard to some of the playback and commenting bugs.

Backwards “innovations” that make it worse.

Five clicks to close a video on an app that wants money to keep playing while the screen is closed 🤡

The user experience has become worse since getting an iPhone 15. Many buttons - especially advert popups - are located at the edge of the screen, which is a very poor ergonomic choice on an app for modern handheld devices with screens that cover the entire front face. Accidental button presses are very common. It’s annoying enough when it’s a pop up ad you have zero interest in, but you can also accidentally touch a broadcast button, which stops the video you’re trying to watch, and presents you with two options - press the button to give consent for the app to access your cam and mic (not for me, ta), or force quit. Very poor data management. If you want to conserve your battery and mobile data, you have to start a video playing, and then fiddle with menus to go from 1080p 60fps to like 360. I can’t find any way to get it to automatically reduce resolutions when you aren’t on a power cable or WiFi. There is a “data saver” button and it seemingly does nothing. Automatic general low mark because I remember when it could play in the background, a basic feature they then paywalled, and which it relentlessly pesters you to buy.
