Hello everyone!

Today Codeforces got support for streams! Thanks tourist for the great idea!

There are two popular platforms supported: Twitch and YouTube. The opportunity to add streams to Codeforces is open to red participants and by individual invitations for now. We possibly open this opportunity to more users later.

The idea is that streamers will be able to announce their streams to the Codeforces audience. To do this, you should add the stream to the site using a special section in your profile. Please, note that when adding a Twitch stream, you just need to specify the URL of your channel, and when adding a YouTube broadcast, its unique short link (URL like youtu.be/...)

Shortly before the start of the stream, a notification about the upcoming stream will appear in the sidebar on the right, which will be shown to all site visitors.

For example, right now there is a Errichto's stream announcement in the sidebar.

Streams in sidebar

We have embed stream viewing right into the Codeforces interface. It turned out to be difficult to embed the YouTube stream chat, so there is no such opportunity for now. For Twitch streams, the chat will be visible on Codeforces.

We plan to improve this functionality in the future. What improvements do you think would be reasonable?

      By similar logic, why do we need the recent actions tab? If someone needs to read a blog, he can go to the author's profile and search it there ..

      The feature is not at all unnecesaary/distracting and infact beneficial for both the streamer and for the viewer. Though I think it should be hidable and should be placed just above or below the Recent actions tab.

      Not everyone knows about all CP streamers. For example I didn't know about any of them. So this feature is very useful

I'm interested.

I'm doing set review streams after CF rounds, in Korean. The stream is focused on making video tutorials for Div.2/Div.3 problems.

I wish there would be chance to promote non-(English/Russian) streams somewhere.

Great initiative, it'll actually increase the reach of quality content delivered by currently active contributors like Errichto, SecondThread, and galen_colin, etc. And hopefully, it'll motivate more red coders to join .

    And by red coders you meant good coders, If I am not wrong? Because there are many not red coders who are better at explaining concepts although I feel that If more good coders learn to express their thoughts better to us It would be nice indeed for all of us and them too. The more the merrier..!

    I think allowing everybody to stream doesn't make sense otherwise Every other newbie who solved A in a contest will stream his solutions/solution after the contest which will lead to mega spamming of the streams section.

Interesting! Looking forward to see how the streams will evolve in the future :)

For those of us who don't watch streams though: can we have a setting to hide the announcements in the sidebar? :) I would even say it should probably be hidden by default.

Small feature request: the stream page currently has a countdown, but it's very coarse and doesn't show the actual time of the stream unless you click on all streams. Could you add the time (ideally timezone corrected and whatnot) to the page?

    +1, make it somewhat similar to contest page (after I click contest name in "Pay Attention" tab).

    And this suggests that I will see a list of planned streams: "Explore Errichto streams by the link". Instead, say something like "You can watch directly on twitch.tv/xyz".

Nah, watching upsolving hard problems is absolutely useless for most of the people learning how to solve problems. Educational video stream is a single most useful resource here. Go Pashka! Well, some of Errichto's stuff is also legit, but it gets less and less educational, imo.

    Since a little talk about features has started to take place here in this blog and if it's not too much to ask, I'd like to add a feature request. I find that loading comments on blogs can sometimes be slow (even when the connection seems to be perfectly fine). This is frustrating when one just wants to read some editorial or look at something important. If something could be implemented along the lines of optional loading of comments on blogs (basically loading them only if one wanted to by, let's say, clicking somewhere on the blog like "Load Comments"). Many times the page is unresponsive until all comments are loaded (especially when trying to open spoilers). It gets worse on days when there's a contest and the activity levels are higher than usual. I'd like to peacefully just load the editorial and not want to have to deal with waiting for the comments (which are pretty useless tbh). I guess this may be a pretty common problem but I don't know for sure as I've never seen others speak on the matter. Also, this maybe a pretty easy feature to implement too.

    This comment is posted as a reply on Um_nik's comments because more often than not they DO get noticed (and I want this to be noticed by the CF Team). Sorry for another green notification though.

Even though I think that these streams are a nice initiative and could be helpful for many people and I support them, I personally will never consider watching them (probably same as majority of people) and for me this new Streams window is intrusively cluttering main page (especially if there are gonna be more than two of them in the future). I would definitely prefer seeing my profile where it was and Top Rated tab on the bottom. Would that be possible to implement hiding that optionally (and permanently, so I do not have to hide it each time I enter Codeforces)? That would not decrease supposed coverage range if it was there by default, but it would not annoy people that consciously chose to opt out.

    Speaking of Codeforces UI, I think making all blocks in the right sidebar widgets would be a great idea (so you can hide/show and also reorder them). This way, users can visually prioritise what kind of information to see first. For example, the widget reordering feature may be useful for people who consider watching streams and are thus interested stream announcements block, but prefer to see other stuff first.

While I agree that it should be possible to hide the stream tab, I don't agree with antontrygubO_o's little protest. He's just added "Should everybody have right to add this here" stream. No, not everybody has right to add this there. Actually, everybody can post a blog and you will see the title on the right, it will just be smaller. Only reds can now create streams so it's like 1000 times fewer people. And in case of spam, any ban from using this tab will work well because one can't just create a new account and spam again.

    I think there is a big difference, for me this looks like getting your post on the main page/your round becoming official Codeforces Round. Yes, everyone can post anything, but not everything deserves being on main page; everyone can create his contest in gym and even invite people to participate, but not every contest deserves becoming official CF contest. Similarly, it's ok if there is a tab where everyone can announce their upcoming streams, but having this on main page right under the contest announcements tab should be agreed with CF, I believe.

      It's a fair observation/suggestion but you're trying to force your way by clearly abusing the system, which would obviously be easily penalized (if any red in the future puts non-CP title there). If I don't like the blog system, should I create blogs with stupid titles to make everyone see it?

        Well, blogs are located at least under "handle", "top rated", "top contributors" and "find user" forms. It would be ok, if stream announcements will be under blogs, but it seems not ok for them to be right under contest announcements.

      I agree, also I can not enjoy my red color on main page without scrolling down, that really sucks. And I never watch any streams(as well as a lot of other people too), so it probably does not deserve to be under contest announcement.

      Yeah, I think leaving it as a special somewhat-moderated section above the Recent Actions would be a good place. It can serve a similar purpose to the Top pane: it should contain more specific/curated/relevant information than just the general "Recent Actions" hodgepodge.

While it's good to see progress is made, I'd like to add another request to make this officially and permanently hideable, and perhaps move to some less visible place in general (at least below user profile instead of above). Some people (me included) prefer reading to watching, and would like Codeforces to be about reading, not watching.

I agree that Streams are now too visible. It pushed down more important vidgets. Move streams below the "Recent actions". I use recent actions several times a day, while it's enough to see coming streams once every few days. It's also strange that you display only one coming contest but several streams (which makes sense though because streams have big variety). This isn't an issue anymore after you put Streams all the way at the bottom of sidebar.

Random crazy idea: put a big list of all coming streams in EDU tab, below the "Courses" section. The common factor is that EDU and Streams are non-written content. This way there is no need for Streams tab. And you will bring more people to EDU section too.

I implemented flags to hide some sidebar blocks: https://codeforces.com/settings/sidebar It is a little bit harder to allow to reorder them, so no such option now.

Also, I plan to reduce the time period to show upcoming streams from 7 days to, say, 1 day. I used 7 days to demonstrate how it works. It would be rather strange to announce streams support, but not give an opportunity to see them.

    I do think having the schedule about a week out is useful, as long as it doesn't get too cluttered. 24 hours is not a lot of notice, especially when everyone is in different timezones. (Maybe limiting the sidebar to showing at most one stream per person would help.)

    Also, I think it still would be good to move the default position of the Streams panel down to the Recent Actions panel, it's a better fit and less intrusive.

This seems like a really cool feature. Will an embed of a stream's vod be available on the stream's page after it has ended?

      Thanks! Second feature request: can we round ratings to the nearest 10 before determining streaming eligibility? I just think it makes sense.

it would be very helpful if you link some type of calendar notification(example google calendar) to notify for particular stream that user interested/registered.

Is it current red or just red at some point of time? The latter would be more reasonable, as it's how gym works.

    I haven't found the stream feature, so either it's current red or it's hard to find.

When I click on a finished Twitch stream, it says

Streams on Twitch are saved for a limited time. The stream recording will appear here as soon as the author uploads it to the video hosting.

What is the meaning of the second sentence? Is there a way to link to a YouTube mirror of the stream?

    Actually there is a way to showcase past streams on Twitch. I have no idea how that's done, but there is that feature.

    I guess this is referring to that.

      As far as I can tell, my past Twitch streams will expire after 2 weeks, so I reupload them to YouTube.

        You should edit the stream on cf and replace a URL with a new one, which points to a youtube-hosted recording. After that the recording will be shown by your stream link on cf.

          Thanks, I tried that but I got "Stream start time can not be earlier than 1 hour before now".

              Thanks! It would also be great if it is possible to have a separate field for the recording, so the original platform is still displayed.

I added the calendar to get notifications for the contests but now it is all about streams. Can we separate streams from contests?

Can you set some upper-bound for the number of streams displayed on the sidebar? Either that or move it below recent actions.

Basing streaming eligibility on current rating creates a slightly weird incentive structure -- streamers near 2400 might be worried about dropping off the sidebar if they participate in a rated round. :)

Maybe it should be based on peak rating, or (idea from neal) "either current rating >2400 or has previously posted streams" (similar to the new rule for problemsetter eligibility).

      I will discuss it with Mike. Imo "either current rating >2400 or has previously posted streams" sounds good.

        Hey geranazavr555, I have a question. Is it okay for an eligible user to invite a non-eligible user to stream on their behalf?

        The way I see it, it circumvents streaming eligibility rules. Users see a stream announcement by a red coder but end up getting a lower-rated streamer, a disservice.

Yesterday I was searching for a past streamed video, at that time no other streams were scheduled, so I couldn't find the sidebar for streams and had to type the Link manually! Shouldn't there be any button for past streams like Home button, or any 'sidebar' for it? Or there IS one already that I missed out somehow! geranazavr555

Is it restricted to English-speaking streams, or can streams in any language be announced?

    Any language is allowed I guess just write the language in the end with square-braces in your topic so that other people could decide whether to watch it or not.
