- by CapoFantasma97, 9 months agoRated 2 out of 5It's a completely scuffed experience.
It completely changes the stream's layout, making basically a worse looking forced theather mode: you can't therefore look the stream info or other elements like sub button, or the streams list sidebar.
It also adds a very noticeable delay in the stream, something not really welcome when you want to interact with the stream.
It also breaks Picture in Picture.

- by Firefox user 13703658, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5I used it only because it was the only solution to ads for me. Now it shows ads so it's pointless to use with inferior features to twitch's website.
- by Firefox user 14706033, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5It used to work like a charm for me, but suddenly I've started getting advertisements on the streams again, I tried to watch a stream earlier and still got some dumb samsung phone ad instead. Even after updating this still occurs.
It also doesn't auto start for me anymore, I have to manually click the twitch5 icon every time.
EDIT: Yep, literally every stream I try to go to plays an ad now.
EDIT2: It's another change that twitch made with their preroll ads. Look twitch, I don't hate all ads, just the cancerous preroll ones.
EDIT3 if people were using this for ad blocking, consider this. https://github.com/instance01/Twitch-HLS-AdBlock
- by Firefox user 14426330, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5not BTTV compatible (the BTTV settings link is not visible)
not "clips" compatible
not vod compatible, so unusable for past episodes
cant view "panels"
cant use extensions
if you only want to watch and never interact, its fine
- by Firefox user 14393142, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5It worked great when I first got it. Although with the developers genius new update, it no longer works. Left click to start extension? Right click to auto start. Neither work. 10/10 update.
Update: Works on live stream, NO LONGER works on pre recorded twitch vids. You get spammed with the same commercial every 2 minutes, while watching a recorded stream lol... 100% intolerable.
