Broadcast Companion (Twitch)

Description

Broadcast Companion, used in combination with the theme Broadcast Lite or Broadcast PRO will integrate Twitch.tv data into your theme. Every time your website is loaded, this plugin makes a request to Twitch to check if you are online. If you are online, data from Twitch is presented in the theme.

The following data is displayed from Twitch:

  • Online / Offline status from Twitch
  • Active game / category
  • Viewer count
  • Videos (clips, highlights and past broadcasts)

Setup

This plugin keeps an active connection to the Twitch API, which requires you to add a Client ID and Client secret from Twitch. Instructions on where to find this data are included in the plugin, but you can also find those instructions here.

I originally used the free version of this theme and loved it so much that I bought the premium version. The countdown application in the stream helped my audience grow while also keeping me on a dedicated schedule. New visitors to my site were able to view my stream and engage with my audience without any issue. I actually can't rate this application highly enough. After my experience with the theme, I tried both their Twitch TV Easy Embed plugin and their Twitch TV Rail plugin; I vouch very highly for both. Highly HIGHLY recommend use of any and all product that StreamWeasel provide. They're a great company. Very hands on and have actively replied to any/all emails/request for support I have. I freaking love them.
