"Twitch users now need to be more vigilant about the music they play while making gameplay videos. Starting today, Twitch is now scanning videos for unauthorized third-party audio in-game and ambient music and automatically muting that content.

In an announcement, Twitch says it has partnered with software company Audible Magic, which works with the music industry, "to scan past and future [videos-on-demand] for music owned or controlled by" its clients. If that scan identifies a recorded video that infringes upon a copyright claim, the video's audio will be muted for a 30-minute block in which that song appears.........."

More info in article.

Can someone recommend another steaming channel on Xbox One( if there is any ) or just in general?

There's no reason to. This only applies to VODs (archived videos), which you can't view while on any of the console apps. Even then, the only reason to watch a VOD is if you missed something or the streamer hadn't already put it on youtube.

As someone who doesn't use twitch or know much about it, why is this a big deal?

Does this mean if someone gets into a car in GTA and the radio the playing, his video will get muted, or is it more for music being played by the uploader (like listening to a CD or whatever)?

Probably all GTA VODs will be muted because of radio audio. Even things like Punch-Out!! are getting muted because of in-game music.

It wont mute the livestream. It will only mute your recorded content, like archives and highlights. Livestreams are NOT affected

"The practice only applies to pre-recorded video on demand, Twitch says. The company won't be scanning live broadcasts, nor will it automatically take content down."

Doesn't effect me, because i don't watch any recorded stuff on twitch, only streams.
