Why Do I Keep Getting Error 2000 on Twitch?

Twitch’s player error 2000 appears for various reasons, with a faulty internet connection being the biggy. It can be the fault of the device you’re watching on, the networking gear it’s connected to, interference from competing wireless networks, or even your internet service provider (ISP) itself.

You may also see this error if the platform’s servers are down, or your VPN isn’t working correctly. A faulty web browser cache can also cause Twitch to display the 2000 error.

Check Your Internet Connection

The most common reason you can’t watch Twitch and get an error #2000 is that your internet connection has stopped working. There may be a technical issue with your connection, causing the problem.

Check if that’s the case by opening a new tab in your web browser and launching another site. If your site doesn’t load, your internet connection is the problem. Try to fix your issue by using some basic fixes, like restarting your router and re-joining your Wi-Fi network. If these don’t resolve your problem, follow other internet troubleshooting tips.

Check if Twitch Is Down

Twitch’s faulty servers can also cause the platform to display an error 2000. In this case, verify if the platform’s servers are indeed down.

Use a site like Twitch Status or Downdetector to check if Twitch is facing an outage. If these sites tell you that Twitch is indeed down, you’ll have to wait until the company resolves the bug and brings the servers back up.

Hard Refresh Your Twitch Web Page

If your internet connection is functioning and you’ve verified that Twitch isn’t down, hard refresh the current Twitch web page in your browser to possibly fix your issue. Doing this loads the web page from its origin as opposed to loading it from your browser’s cache, fixing any cache-related problems.

To do that in Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, hold down the Shift key and click the refresh icon located near the web browser’s address bar.

Enable or Disable Your VPN

One reason you get an error code 2000 is that Twitch may have banned your IP address. The platform may have found suspicious activities from your IP address, blocking your IP’s access to the site.

In this case, if you aren’t using a VPN, turn on your VPN service and see if that fixes your issue. A VPN gives you a new public IP to work with, bypassing sites’ restrictions.

If you’re already using a VPN, turn off your VPN (as your VPN’s IP address might be banned). This way, Twitch sees your actual IP address, letting you access the site.

Use a Different Web Browser

To rule out any possibility of your web browser causing the issue, launch a different web browser on your computer and access the same Twitch web page. You may have to sign in to your account to watch your content, so make sure to do that.

If your web page loads just fine in your new browser, your previous browser likely has issues. In this case, clear your previous web browser’s cached content and turn off the installed extensions to possibly resolve your issue. The following sections detail how to do that, and you might want to skip to it if installing another browser would take too long.

Clear Your Web Browser Cache

A faulty cache is often the cause of various web browser issues. To fix a bad cache in your browser, simply clear all the content that your browser has cached so far. You don’t lose your browsing history, downloads, bookmarks, passwords, or any other data when you clear this cache.

To learn how to do that, check out our guide on how to remove the cache in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari. Once you’ve done that, reload the Twitch site in your web browser, and your issue should be fixed.

Disable Your Web Browser Extensions

Your web browser extensions add more functionalities to your browser, but sometimes, they’re corrupt and end up causing various issues. In this case, disable all your browser extensions to see if you can then load your Twitch web page.

Check out our guide on how to disable extensions in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari to learn how to do that. Then, launch the Twitch site in your browser and see if the issue persists.

Temporarily Disable Your Firewall

Last but not least, ensure your firewall isn’t blocking your connection to the Twitch site. You can verify that by temporarily turning off your computer’s firewall protection.

To do that in Windows 11 or 10, head into Windows Security > Firewall & Network Protection, choose the network that says “(active),” and disable “Microsoft Defender Firewall.” (You’ll turn this option back on when you’ve tested Twitch.)

Turn off "Microsoft Defender Firewall."

On Mac, open a Terminal window and issue the following command. Then, type your Mac’s admin password to finish turning off the firewall.

  sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf globalstate -int 0

When you’ve finished testing Twitch, re-enable your Mac’s firewall using the following command:

  sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.alf globalstate -int 1
