youtube
- all streams are saved
- afaik you can get higher bitrate = much better for those who stream useing a graphix card
- always have option to change quality (on twich small streamers stream quality only available on "source", and if you stream at 1080p with high bitrate, old PCs might suffer and users with slow internet or mobile devices as well, also twich itself sometimes can't spit out enought speed to load video and you can't even lower quality to make it little better
-after stream is done it needs to process and then you can give links to any time inside of that stream
-if you use copyrighted music your vid can get banned in all countries and i am not sure if there is option to mute parts... maybe it depends on the video size... i think videos that last longer than 6 hours and have copyrighted content are fucked.
-if automitic search of copyrighted content made a mistake you can ask for manual review and recover your vid, at least from my experience
- you can comment, favorite, add to playlist, comment or like video after stream is done, and live comments are saved and separated from normal comments
Twitch
-greatly superior emoji
Image
-slightly better "search by game", can also "follow" whole game.
-better comunity and memes
-nice theater mode
-clips
-mutes copyrighted music, but not sure if there is any way to object on automatic muting and unmute video if it was muted by mistake.
-twitch is older and might have more cool stuff for stream setup that i don't know, like "better twitch tv", OBS plugins, chat bots, and general interactivity and integration into games, but that does not apply to supcom very well

i go with youtube because i already have youtube channel and i want to have all my streams saved and i stream on graphix card

Edit: i abandoned twitch after they deleted APC cup archives... some of vids were left on youtube here but channel was hacked and all vids got porn thumbnails and virus links in description. and even my GF was mad at me cause she saw porn thumbnails in my youtube history and i had to explain that i clicked on those vids not because of the porn thumbnails xDDD
i have saved some of APC vids myself but there are not many and no early ones :(.
i'd recommend downloading vids that you like... i was lucky to download this and later on it was deleted... like what the f***...
also if anyone have saved any montain casts or complination nation (or whatever that guy was with super fun commentary) please share vids with me

I use Twitch because I find the viewing experience for streaming on Youtube unenjoyable and wouldn't wish it upon anyone.
Ask me about my amazing content production to watch while you wait in a lobby.
