Knowing when your favorite justin.tv
channels go live is hard. Most streamers notify their fan base via twitter. This add-on displays a notification when a streamer goes live.
The streams monitored can be set three different ways:
Automatically let the add-on search for your login name on justin.tv
and displaying notifications for your favorites, displaying notifications for favorites of defined users or just notifications for channels defined in the options. The best thing: you can use all three features to define monitored channels at once.
The add-on gives you full control: you can even customize the interval of the add-on refreshing the state of the channels.
The add-on can show a notification on different events: when a channel goes live, it changes its title or it goes offline.
A notification shows the title of the stream and the channel name, as well as the channel's profile picture. A click on the notification focuses the tab with the channel page, if already opened, or opens a new tab to watch the stream.
To check for missed notifications or to tune in to a channel later, the extension provides a panel with a list of currently live channels. You can also expand the panel to see all the channels being tracked. The panel button, which can be placed in the add-on bar or as a normal toolbar button, changes its appearance, so you can see in one glance, whether any channel is online. You can manually refresh the channel statuses from the panel.
