I don't really get live streaming, in the, entertainment way. My main issue is the time and flow, as lives are generally quite long of 1h+ and of course because its raw footage, if nothing happens for 5 minutes, I have to sit there looking at nothing for gfive minutes; While a well edited video, with cuts and some effects, of anything is not just shorter but more content packed.

My second thing I don't get is the supposed interaction. If it's a small streamer with just up to a hundred or so people watching, it's actually kinda nice, people can actually chat with each other and the streamer most of the time; But with larger streams, of 200+ people watching, it just devolves into a spam fest of everyone trying to get the streamer's attention.
