I'm not kidding.

The interface confuses me, and I suspect it's because the only people that I follow don't have fully expanded accounts.

Here's the issue:

I hear that Rowdy is broadcasting an episode, so I go later to watch it but it's not there.
There's no post-facto record that he ever broadcast a game.... so is that the standard methodology?

If so, that's pretty shitty.

If there's some sort of cap to the amount of video you can host on the site then I'd understand this condition,
but a note that says "This Player has a beginner account so there are no saved games for you to view".

Any suggestions or explanations that might make the site more acceptable?

Twitch is definitely more geared toward live streaming and interaction (via chat) than archived 'episodes' –– and even more so with the recent changes to their archiving policy.

A lot of people who stream on Twitch also record their sessions locally so they can upload them to YouTube later on, which is what I do as well (when my PC is behaving well enough to pull it off, in any case).
