Better chat experience and a simpler stream directory on YouTube Live and YouTube Gaming
Better YouTube Live is a browser extension, that strives to level up YouTube Live by augmenting it with a better, more customisable chat, a new homepage for followed streams, desktop notifications, and much more.
Better YouTube Live is a browser extension that enhances both YouTube Live and YouTube Gaming with features that enrich the experience of every viewer and chatter.
It does so by allowing the user to customise the most important aspects of YouTube Live, the chat and the streams directory.
Key features of Better YouTube Live are:
1. Customisable chat - You can change the look and the interface of the YouTube Live and YouTube Gaming chat, by tweaking each option to your liking
2. Chat themes - If tweaking each and every option (out of the 50+), is not your cup of tea then you can select one of the pre-defined themes that customise your chat in an instant
3. New homepage for followed streams - Every stream you follow via this extension shows up on the new homepage for livestreams that we create for you. No more do you have to look all over YouTube Live or YouTube Gaming to find your favourite streams.
4. Notifications - As soon as one of you favourited streams goes live, you get a desktop notification that informs you! No more missing emails, or notifications that pop up after 15 minutes!
5. Live status popup - If you pin our extension in the browser toolbar, then with just one click you can check the status of your followed streams, whether they are live or offline. This popup gives you the perfect small window that shows live streams at the top, and offline streams at the bottom, along with the latest streams your streamer had, for such a convenient access to VODs - and all of this while you're not even on YouTube!
6. BTTV global emotes - Currently the chat is capable of rendering global BTTV (Better TTV / Better Twitch TV) emotes, with support for FFZ (FrankerFaceZ) and 7TV coming very soon!
Oh and don't be confused, this extension works for both YouTube Live and YouTube Gaming, so it might as well be called Better YouTube Live and Better YouTube Gaming, but we had to settle for one name.
