Live Stream Notifier 3.4.0
Never miss the stream of your favorite creator again with this extension. You will get notifications for updates and get quick access to them from the toolbar. Works with most major streaming services, including Twitch, YouTube and Mixer.
About this Add-on
Catching a stream is hard, unless you have the channel page constantly open or live on Twitter. Live Stream Notifier checks the status of your favorite streamers in the background while you do other things and shows you a notification when they go live.
- Sometimes you miss a notification, which is why you can access all streams ordered by status from a handy button in the toolbar.
- You can also know when the title changes, the stream goes offline or the broadcaster starts to redirect (host) to another stream or replays an older broadcast.
- The popup from the toolbar button also offers an explore tab, where you can find popular streams from multiple platforms.
- Filter the list of channels in the panel, because you follow every streamer in the world.
- A context menu on channels, that lets you jump to their chat or copy their URL with a custom pattern around it (defaults to just the URL).
- A channel manager that lets you easily add channels a user follows or mass-remove hundreds of channels at once.
- All notification types are individually disableable.
If the extension is running in an environment where Firefox supports parental controls it will hide mature content when possible.
