Twitch TV Embed Suite allows easy placement of a twitch tv stream and/or chat anywhere on your WordPress site.
Implemented this plugin a while ago, just haven't gotten to rating it until now.
For the most part, the plugin is easy, does its job, and is easy to manipulate with CSS.
Until you want to implement the Streamlist code.
Use the Streamlist shortcode in a widget and you're golden. Try to have it placed on a post/page and will run into issue. Created a support request for this. Usually I can fix things like with with css tweaks, but for some reason this is being a pain.
Other than that, by using CSS, you can just about position the Live Stream & Chat any way you want. :)
There is a typo on line 73 of widget.php that was causing the user profile image to not display for me. $plugin_dir should be $plugin_dir_path.
I also suggest using classes instead of hard coding styles into the HTML, some things don't work in all themes and it's nice to be able to override.
Thanks for making this plugin!
3 stars only because I can't seem to figure out how to move the chat to the right side of the video player. I tried wrapping the two short codes in a div each with their own id and going to appearance -> edit css to apply css positioning code. No css I apply seems to be affecting the shortcodes.
I did a float left for the video and float right for the chat, making sure that their width does not exceed the maximum page width. The chat remains under the video and is not floated right. To further test this I set the width for each of these divs to something ridiculous like 100px and there were still no visible changes.
I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or trying to apply the css in the wrong location but I can't get it to work. Not sure what else to do and it seems that all of the twitch plugins do the same exact thing and have no option for moving the chat to the right side of the video.
If this is resolved or an option is added to move the chat to the right automatically I will bump up the rating to 5 stars.
(edit: figured it out... you have to use the ID that is output by the shortcode (if you use chrome right click and inspect element, and hover over the twitch player and chat, those will show you their ID's), you can't wrap your own div around it and apply css to that. Will bump it up to 4 stars since I got it figured out and it does work but wont go up to 5 for the moment since there was absolutely nothing about this in the documentation as far as I could see and the only response on the authors webpage recommends wrapping divs around it and applying styles to those)
I'm quite impressed with this: Customizability works well and it loads as quick as a YouTube Embed!
Just installed this today and its all I've been looking for. A Twitch player, Twitch chat & a sidebar widget to show whether I'm on/offline to my website visitors. It's simple. Clean interface. No confusing instructions, user friendly and self explanatory. Took less than 5 minutes to setup on my site. I have nothing negative to say about it and I will be donating. Thank You!
