Twitch removes time limit for highlights, adds 'appeal' system for videos on demand

Lots of work left to be done

It seemed inevitable that Twitch was going to roll out a system for flagging copyrighted music in past broadcasts, but what streamers and viewers got this week felt largely unfinished. The company is adding an "appeal" button for videos on demand that have been erroneously flagged and muted by the audio recognition system, which really should've been there already.

But if this tech is here to stay, it's at least nice to hear Twitch say "We recognize that the system is not yet perfect. We want to make this system as fair and unobtrusive as possible, and we greatly appreciate your help." From the sound of it, the company knows what its next steps should be -- it got an earful this week during a reddit Ask Me Anything with CEO Emmett Shear.

There's also been a change to the newly-imposed two-hour limit on highlight videos of past broadcasts: it's gone. Now, highlights of any length will be "saved indefinitely."

Two Important Updates. More to Come. [Twitch]
