The player of live broadcasts for the Twitch.tv website.
Advantages of the “Twitch 5” player in comparison with the standard player:
• Less stops during playback: if necessary, the player's settings can be tuned to your Internet connection.
• Instant replay of the last minutes of the live broadcast, optionally with increased/reduced speed or frame-by-frame.
• Takes up less RAM.
• Live broadcasts will not be interrupted by commercials.
• Clean and simple interface.
• You can colorize the player interface to your liking.
• You can set the size and location of the chat.
• You can completely disable the chat: it will not consume computer resources, and you will not be in the viewers list.
• Rapid start-up of the player. This is especially noticeable on slower computers.
Disadvantages of the “Twitch 5” player in comparison with the standard player:
• “Whispers” are not available.
• The “Twitch 5” player supports (yet) only live broadcasts. For videos the standard player is used.
• Due to browser limitations, the extensions which enhance chat are not working in the “Twitch 5” player. The exception is made for the “BetterTTV”, “FrankerFaceZ” and “FFZ Add-On Pack” extensions. To do this, the extension during the installation requires permission to read the list of installed extensions. Do not worry about this permission. :)
Extension does not work in some browsers, such as “Chromium”, which do not support H.264 and AAC.
To report a problem with the extension, start the “Twitch 5” player, click the “Settings” button in the lower right corner, then click “Feedback” button. If you can't start the player, let me know by email. The e-mail address is located somewhere on this page.
