Twitch - YouTube

I truly think Twitch could use some YouTube integration at least if acquisition by Google YouTube division is not going to happen. YouTube already has a similar system implemented for recognition of unauthorized copyrighted audio in place. YouTube also has capabilities way beyond Twitch's capabilities to store video. Integrating Google's CDN (Content Delivery Network) would do Twitch really good as well and might help further decrease delays caused by Twitch's choice to use HLS (Http Live Streaming). So far Google's/YouTube's attempt to offer live streaming have kind of failed, but a combination of Twitch/YouTube using best of both could be a more than welcome solution. Even though I completely moved away from Twitch as for streaming myself, I can sure imagine what that would look like ;-)
