Twitch has become a household name among gamers and streamers since its launch back in 2011. Twitch sends regular updates and patches to the client apps to squash bugs regularly and fix issues. But, one issue that has disturbed the Twitch streamers often, is “Network Error 2000“. Twitch doesn’t usually show up this error message. But if you are using a bad network connection or your WiFi settings are misconfigured, you will notice this error message.
1. Check the network connection. Sometimes bad network connection can cause this issue.
2. Close and relaunch the Twitch.
3. Try to refresh the website a few times. Minor problems can get fixed with just a simple refresh.

You should be logged out from Twitch.
4. Now, you can easily log in to Twitch.
5. To do that, just tap “Log in“.
6. Just enter your username and password in the particular boxes (Usually, if your account credentials are saved in the browser. So, you may not have to re-enter any details.)
7. Tap “Log in“.
8. You will be sent a security code to your registered email-ID/mobile.

3. Next, tap on “Extensions” to open up the list of extensions in Google Chrome.
4. In this list of extensions, disable all the extensions one by one.

Fix 5 – Disable the Low Latency mode
Disabling the low latency mode in some particular streams has worked for many users.
1. In Twitch open any stream.
2. Now, tap on the gear icon (⚙) at the bottom of the stream and tap “Advanced“.
3. Now, just turn off the “Low latency” mode.

Fix 6 – Pause the antivirus
Sometimes the antivirus can hinder the Twitch stream.
1. Antivirus usually runs behind, the icon should be hidden. So, tap on the arrow sign on the taskbar.
2. Look for the antivirus icon you have. Once you have found it, tap on it and then click on “Pause protection” to pause the antivirus on your system.
Now, open a Twitch stream and check if it works out.
Alternative solutions –
1. Use another browser, like Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Brave, etc. as Twitch does work flawlessly on almost all the latest browsers.
2. As Twitch is terminating its support of the Twitch desktop client, you can’t use it anymore. Alternatively, you can try to use the Twitch app on iOS and Android.
