It use to work but not when it's "hiding ads" it just pause the stream might as well just watch the ad.
- Rated 3 out of 5by PrincessOfTheDeadSheep, 3 days agoIt's a good program, a little confusing to use but fairly easily learned. I am grateful for it and thank you for making it free!
Currently, raids are not working. The chat will switch channels but the visuals don't show anything but the ended broadcast screen no matter what I've tried.
Also, it refuses to allow me to follow anyone! The follow button disappears and a red box with a sad emoji pops up briefly.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Paranoia, 3 days agogood extension, it could be better if you implement 7tv compatibility, i really hope you will
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14793718, 6 days agoIt's really good, but please update to make it work with 7TV.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Dream, 7 days agoThis is an amazing extension but it needs to be updated to work with new 7TV v3 because it doesnt work at all.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Wally, 8 days agoWorks great & saves a LOT of CPU cycles. It just won't let you log in at the moment, so no drops, points, chat participation, etc.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17540283, 9 days agoThe only extension that i've found that works on blocking Twitch Ads. Only problem i have right now its channel points not working. Hope it gets fixed soon.
- Rated 4 out of 5by wotplayer80, 21 days agoAgain problem with collecting channel points and drops... Any update?
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17795136, a month agoThank you to your amazing alternate twitch player ! it works like a charm here. Sadly i cant make a paypal donation... when i try it says me that "this user cannot accept payements"... i'll definitely try again from time to time until it works :)
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 16751724, a month agoIs there anything that can be done with the stream delay? There's like a 2 second delay on streams. It's obvious seeing the reactions from the chat coming in early, or even when I compare it with my tablet.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14816717, a month agoIt's pretty great, but for some reason there is no option to see the followed streamers left sidebar. I use that a LOT so it unfortunately prevents me from being able to use this.
- Rated 5 out of 5by SearedBeard, 2 months agoThis add-on has been great but updated today and now channel points no longer increase for any channel. Tested disabling the add-on and channel points work again.
Edit: Tried two earlier versions and channel points don't work. Maybe Twitch changed their API again.
Edit 2: Points working again. Back to 5 stars!
- Rated 5 out of 5by Torbjørn, 2 months agoLooks great, thanks CoolCmd. Would it be possible to make it work for archives on twitch as well? I am having annoying issues with the standard player for archives, and feel like yours would work way better.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Omnivore, 2 months agoTwitch API changes have broken this extension, for most users. You can view video but, login is failing (so no chat or user presence.) Until it's updated, you'll need to find another method. This is by far the best Twitch viewing experience, when it works. I'd donate in a heartbeat if the creator relocated and started taking other currencies ...
Developer responseposted 2 months agoIf you have browser extension DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials (or similar privacy extensions) installed, try to disable/remove it. Also read the built-in help in the player.
