Wondering if i was right about this

no one replied there

OP replied to their own post

Their own system clock was wrong leading to the negatives

yes i made that post and replied to , was wondering if that was actually the problem and why would my pc clock affects the timer if it is the case. what does op mean btw

OP = Original Poster

Twitch says “stream started at time in UTC of x”

Then your browser goes “get system time and subtract the two”

So if your computer clock is fast/slow by seconds/minutes then it will miscalculate the difference.

It’s “cheaper” to send the start time only (and not Twitch Server time) and let the browser work it out using the system clock than to send two times and math those times.

thank you
