    1080p using steam browser runs fine, does feel a bit blurry.

    If I use Auto quality it just jumps all around leading to lag.

    If I watch the stream in the most recent chrome browser the video freezes for a few seconds pretty often while audio continues.

    Reconnected to chat messages every few minutes.

    would be better if the video is a little brighter and the rest is all okay!

    It's choppy when camera moves fast and it's way to dark.

    I second this. 60 fps is nice, but I'd like to see how much crisper it looks at 30 or 45 fps. I think the extra picture quality would easily make up for the fps difference.

    Audio quality is also all over the place, but that's more so an issue with the tournaments audio setup. Dota TV just always sounds worse than Twitch.

    Will this count as watching matches like twitch does?
    The quality is really nice, but I can only watch it in steam http://puu.sh/i4ZfH/284b07d36f.png this pops up when I open the link in Chrome

    Edit:
    1. Sometimes the stream lags
    2. If you open it in Fullscreen on a 2nd screen and switch the focus to another window both screens go black for a moment.

    CvP is right about the stream being slightly blurry. Imo it's okay-ish but a sharp 30 fps version would be useful.

    Occasional stuttering (sometimes sound, rarely video) and rather frequent chat disconnects and reconnects from Germany.
    If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

    The sound is the spectator watching dotatv, not the stream

    • its a bit blurry
    • no theater mode (full window with only stream + chat), or at least I cant find it
    • I think you should make it a separate product, i.e. its own domain for it to succeed and compete with other streaming services. This is kind of a niche feature hidden under some menu in steam...

    The audio of the commentators sounds quite a bit lower quality compared to twitch.
