The developer of this has switched hands, and I'm hopeful for the support to greatly increase as well. We have been using this plugin for about 1.5 years now, and definitely love it!

Works amazing. It would be even better if you could control how many online streams will automatically start. Perfect widget for gaming-related websites

You should add column formatting so that it fits automatically. And you can see all direct in Grid format. It would be great, and you would have many more facilities. Extra opinion, you should improve the Plugin miniature, it does not emphasize enough because it seems unprofessional. Nice Plugin!
