Image from store Alternate Player for Twitch.tv
Description from store Advantages of the player: • Less stops during playback: if necessary, the player settings can be tuned to your Internet connection. • Instant replay of the last minutes of the live broadcast, optionally with increased/reduced speed or frame-by-frame. • Does not insert ads. Ads that Twitch embeds directly into the stream, in some cases can be shown. • “Audio only” mode. Ideal for music listening. • The extension automatically opens chests with bonus points in chat. • You can set the size and location of the chat, even while in full-screen mode. • In chat (for example, attached to the bottom or top side of the window) there is room for much more messages and emotes. • You can completely disable the chat: it will not consume computer resources, and you will not be in the chatters list. • Allows you to select the device for audio output (if more than one device is available): speakers, headphones, TV, etc. • Changes volume by mouse wheel. • You can colorize the player interface to your liking. • Takes up less RAM. • Rapid start-up of the player. This is especially noticeable on slower computers. • Allows you to disable stretching the small video to the player size. • Allows you to continue viewing the broadcast in another player, for example Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player, or MX Player. • Large number of useful (and not so) settings. • Supports Chrome 49, Windows XP and OS X 10.6. The extension during installation requires the following permissions: • Read and change your data on a number of websites where Twitch stores its video. The list of websites may expand over time. • Manage your apps, extensions, and themes. Actually the extension just reads the list of installed extensions. This is necessary in order to load into the chat only those extensions that you have installed yourself in your browser. Only the following browser extensions can work in chat: BetterTTV, FrankerFaceZ and FFZ Add-On Pack. Also read the Privacy Policy (link on this page) for further details. The player can playback only live broadcasts and does not affect playback of videos. I do not recommend using the extension without a mouse, because touch screen support is incomplete. The extension does not work in some browsers, such as Chromium, which does not support H.264 and AAC. If you have problems with the extension, first read the help. To do this, in the player right click the view area, then in the menu click “Help”. If you still have questions, then in the same menu click "Send Feedback". If you cannot start the player, send an e-mail to the extension developer. The e-mail address is located somewhere on this page. This extension is not an official Twitch application. The extension was created by independent developer, who is not affiliated with Twitch Interactive, Inc company in any way. The extension inserts part of the Twitch.tv website — chat — into extension player. The extension is also available for Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox browsers.

Latest reviews

  • (2020-10-28) Saug Muidi: Please have a developer build and distribute it on github , having to wait for the fixed version to be reviewed and published could make the updated version pointless if twitch does change stuff before the extension gets approved and makes the wait even longer Clicked a stream and ads are back as of now, but still seem to work with streams that i frequent Other notes : the tooltips for the statistics overlay have no EN translations
  • (2020-10-28) Daniel Paton: Ads are back, as of this week. Awful. Please fix.
  • (2020-10-27) Cody L: Ads have been getting through for over a week now. Developer said just wait. ......waiting
  • (2020-10-27) Joseph Rider: Used frequently for about a year, until the last few days when ads started coming through. At first, a refresh would remove then. As of today, 10/27/20, there seems to be no way around them. Uninstalling until the extension is fixed/updated. Sad to see it go.
  • (2020-10-27) a hot diarrhea: DO NOT INSTALL IT NO LONGER WORKS
  • (2020-10-27) K T: Ads seem to be getting through as of today.
  • (2020-10-27) Aaron Troup: great app, ads are coming through again as of 10/27/20 though still reccommend
  • (2020-10-27) Steve Medeiros: Great extension. Would love to see my followed streamers while watching a stream though.
  • (2020-10-26) Danzo: Неплохо, но хотелось бы видеть список каналов слева, очень не хватает.
  • (2020-10-24) x2xsw3x76x _: ну теперь по кд виснет твич 4ая неделя так уже
  • (2020-10-23) Fawaz Akhtar: Great add-on. Would it be possible to add an option to view raids? Currently, if a streamer raids somebody, you can't watch the raided channel. Also, if possible, an ability to flip mirror views(because many streamers use mirrored views for no reason other than to adjust their hair and makeup).
  • (2020-10-22) FB3 Network: Works like a charm. I really was getting sick of the video buffering on a Chromebook with videos with anything that has a frame rate above I think 20. I was able to change settings in the app and now I rarely have any issues with watching videos with these quality options.
  • (2020-10-21) 64 fanatic: giving 5 stars because people are petty and leave low star reviews when amazon ads are a game of catchup for extension developers.
  • (2020-10-20) Wyatt Gleason: Ads are getting through to the alternate player now. Please fix.
  • (2020-10-20) Maverynthia Crowinthas: Needs the ability to popout chat since it removes that ability natively in Twithc when using it.
  • (2020-10-19) Sai M: its not blocking ads recently, what happened ?
  • (2020-10-19) A: Amazing, worked very well at removing ads and gave many options for the viewer to customize the twitch experience. Had no bugs at all since installing and overall GREAT. However, since a few days ago, i think twitch has patched the ad blocking feature of Alternate Player, started to have ads seep through into twitch streams (mid-roll as well as start). I am not sure of Twitch was able to do this or if there is something wrong with Alternate Player. Would like to hear if others are also experiencing ads come through the player now (as of somewhere of 16-18th October or so).
  • (2020-10-19) x2xsw3x76x _: я понял ребята ,в этом новом обновлении подвез рекламу автор,никогда не было а тут началось приходится скипать.
  • (2020-10-19) Valentin Popescu: No longer blocks pre-roll ads. :(
  • (2020-10-19) TheIrie One: I'm starting to get ads now. It was good before that. Edit: ads are now blocked according to the update. Haven't had the full opportunity to experience it's validity. I'll edit and change my rating if it remains the same as before the update. Edit2: 3/20 after they said they updated to remove ads I'm still seeing netflix ads. Will update my rating and comment when fixed this time for real. Edit3: 10/18/20 Edit to give 5 star, although ads coming in again but Alexander Choporov said he fixed the ads and google needs some time before extension update.
  • (2020-10-18) Saug Muidi: Version 2020.10.15 Updated October 17, 2020 Not so prime ads are showing
  • (2020-10-18) Ssudden Ddeath: Hey Alexander Choporov, the extension is now letting the new ads in. I noticed it 4 days ago.
  • (2020-10-18) dylonji: started to show adds here and there on twitch. hope you will fix it soon. regards
  • (2020-10-18) Eric Whang: No longer blocks ads from twitch.
