Just use the SIP protocol. It's kinda hard getting into it, but as soon as everything is up and running it's awesome. You can stream from pretty much any platform to any platform with SIP and there are tons of server solutions that support it.
Any word on this? Also, any possibility to be in a pre-launch (beta) group? I recently did a NASA Space Apps challenge, helped out with an Accessibility group’s event and do both weekly streams as well as monthly events. I would love to be able to help you build the HTML based player. I’ve got an event coming up on the 22nd of May that the speaker is TVO (large TV studio in Canada) who is demonstrating their Leap Motion development as well as designing interactive games for kids. It will likely be held at Ryerson University’s interactive centre.
I use my xbox 360 with the twitch app and it plays fine plus the youtube app is awesome.
I can also use IE for xbox to watch youtube videos perfectly fine even though for 2 secs it says you need flash to view then the video plays.
Now im confused about youtube and twitch stating flash is needed as with IE but all 3 work perfectly fine, so does this mean YOUTUBE and TWITCH apps plus IE for 360 are HTML5 compliant?
How or why can i view flash on 360 via the 2 apps and IE for 360 when there is a clear message that you need Adobe Flash to view but its abvious HTML5 is used and has been for years now on xbox and ps3.
However Twitch via IE for xbox wont load/play videos. I need flash.WTF? Plus my sony bravia will not play Twitch or youtube videos as flash and HTML5 is not surrported and never will be BUT the YOUTUBE app for my TV works great as with rss feeds and other formats that require Flash or HTML5 . WTF? So is MS and Adobe up to some BS or is there an issue with media rights or is it like UFOs, we all know but the powers that be dont want to give up power and control just yet.
ok, http://www.twitch.tv/channel/popout is working in HTML5, still I think you should have new official way of embedding streams using an iframe like youtube does and detect which player (flash,html etc) browser supports and give proper stream.
Hi, why HLS (e.g. http://www.twitch.tv/channel/hls) doesn't work in Android 4.4 (and any other) in WebView and Chrome (even if I change user agent to ipad, the only difference is that the message about unsupported player is gone) but when open channel main page then stream is working and is played from <video> tag? Since Android 4.4 doesn't work with flash anymore (WebView is now based on Chrome) there is no way to embed twitch stream, can you fix http://www.twitch.tv/channel/hls site?
"HTTP Live Streaming Android 4.4 updates the platform's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) support to a superset of version 7 of the HLS specification (version 4 of the protocol). See the IETF draft for details." - https://developer.android.com/about/versions/kitkat.html
HLS works great on Mac + Safari. In order for it to work you need to uninstall Flash or simply use a add-on to control which sites can use flash. For it's perfect because CPU has gone down dramatically and thus temps and nice and low.
We need some more info on this. The HLS support you guys apparently implemented also apparently seems to suck quite badly in terms of support. It's been a year and practically nothing has changed. I don't know about what other people think, but you guys over at Twitch need to get your act together, stop using outdated technology, and work on a proper HTML5 player. Investigate the WEBM format, for instance. WEBM is absolutely phenomenal and would be a massive upgrade to Twitch (or any video streaming website). Flash is an absolutely horrendous system for video streaming, especially at higher qualities and higher framerates. A lot of people mention how you need a better CPU for watching high quality high framerate videos, but that's absolute hogwash. The reason why video playback in Flash doesn't work well isn't because of your CPU; it's because Flash is so badly made. Upgrading your CPU for that reason is the worst reason you could ever think of. Just to paint a picture: you can watch a 720p 60fps gaming video with absolutely zero framedrops on an Intel Core 2 Duo using any video player (such as VLC or MPC), whereas that's not such a great experience when watching that video through Flash. In fact, Flash butchers the entire experience.
It'd be great if we could just leave all this outdated technology behind >_>
I recently switched over to the HLS player on my macbook in safari, and I keep getting to a point where the stream video will get into slow motion while the audio remains fine which forces to refresh the page every 2 minutes, really annoying. Is this normal behavior? I really consider switching to VLC even though streamers get no add revenue out of it, having to choose between the computer melting flash player and this glitchy HLS player is really disappointing.
After a year and a half, still no new about twitch.tv in html5 ? :-( Even the beta version of the site use flash...
It's particulary bad for Linux users, for whom Flash Player is not any more supported (except security updates).
Still, there is some solutions, I invite persons reading this message to take a look at http://livestreamer.readthedocs.org/en/latest/# and http://help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/1302780-twitch-irc .
Since there are two (!) critical exploits in flash right now there realy should be html5 for / in Twitch. Flash has no future and is insecure. You guys know that more than we do. Thought you guys had some realy good programmers. Don't say to us it takes two years for them to implement HTML5. Make it happen please.
I've uninstalled flash after getting malware due to a flash exploits. I can't enjoy Twitch content now, but my computer safety is more important than Twitch. Still I'd like twitch to have HTML5 video support (Just like YouTube and the other big video sites). Till then I won't be able to use the website.
Trying the /hls "trick" doesn't work with an up to date Firefox in Win7 64bit, says Unsupported Player. *sigh* The first question in this thread is 2 years old, and they still don't have it working? So much for "in a few months" ...
