Advantages of the “Twitch 5” player in comparison with the Twitch.tv 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 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 Twitch.tv player:
• “Whispers” are not available.
• Due to Chrome limitations, the extensions which enhance chat are not working in the “Twitch 5” player. An exception is made for the “BetterTTV” and “FrankerFaceZ” extensions.
