Twitch tv mod or block
« on: April 22, 2012, 09:48:03 PM »
Ive posted at twitch.tv and they basically pointed me in the right direction for the API but am hoping there is an easier route.
Does anyone know how to setup a block to show streams of users that are actually online and streaming?  As of right now i just have an html block that his the links in it. . . but looking at sites like teamliquid. . . i see its possible.  Any help would be greatly appreciiated.

I suppose you could simply put the embed code inside of the block code. Not sure if that helps.

Hi deciph3red

Firstly what is twitch.tv?

Do you use a portal? The embed code can be placed in a php code if so.

twitch.tv is a streaming website like youtube, but streams live.  At this time I  basically just have an HTML block setup with links to each players stream. . but want to have it only show users that are online and streaming.

Also, im using portmx

Have you made a post on the mods support topic or at their own forum?

yes i posted at twitch, and they gave me a link to the API, and no i have not posted in the mod section.

I was hoping someone here at SMF has already done this and I could just use their work.

This is why I asked if you had made a post in the mods support board!

So I just found this post and I am actually in the progress of creating one on my website!  We have the stream(s) up right now and are on working out the kinks with the API.  Once we get it figured out, we might try and integrate it further and release it as a mod or a block.
