Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Re-usable Code External Content  

This plugin will make it possible for you to display certain streams on your forum homepage based on keywords or games.

Why did I make this? Because certain gaming (community) forums probably want to include certain streams on the homepage about their game. I also had this plugin laying around here while it was about 80% finished, decided to finish and release it.

It works by contacting the API of Twitch, just keep in mind that the API is not entirely correct and up to date at times. Sometimes streams are not displayed for some reason, unfortunately there's nothing much I can do about this since this is a problem at Twitch.
  • I also implemented basic caching to avoid a bunch of requests being sent to Twitch's server.
  • It's also possible to hide/show the block and to configure usergroups who can block certain Twitch streamers from being displayed in the list.
  • You can also make it so the block doesn't appear when there are no available streams based on your settings, makes your forum look a bit cleaner.

How to install?
Read the installation.txt file in the .zip file.

Looking great this,do you think you would expand it to allow us to input certain stream links from twitch which we would always like to show?
We have a few members who stream and have links to them now using another mod but would really like this one if it could be a option added sir

I uploaded a new version which allows you to specify usernames/channel names.

It's only necessary to re-upload the files in the UPLOAD folder.
