Bet % - the percentage of channel points you want the sniper to bet. - Max num of points - the maximum amount of points the sniper is allowed to vote with. - Min vote margin % - a percentage representation of the minimum required vote margin between the two prediction options for the sniper to participate. -- For example: option A- 100 votes, option B- 115 votes, vote spread: A-46.51% B-53.49%, vote margin: 6.98% (53.49% - 46.51%). if the minimum vote margin is lower than 6.98%, the sniper will participate in the prediction. - Seconds - the amount of seconds the sniper will make a prediction before the prediction closes (min 2s). - Remember that this is a statistical tool and wins are not guaranteed. ** Advanced Video Embeds - This applies to the Multi-Stream feature and on-the-fly video embeds (not previews). - Bypasses purple screen. - Adds enabled features to embeds (seek, fast-forward, auto-refresh, picture-in-picture, fullscreen with custom chat, cast -> close tab, flashbang defender, stream screenshot). - Seeking using the keyboard arrow keys in these embeds will be in 1.5 seconds intervals instead of the normal 5 seconds to allow easier streams synchronization for Multi-Stream. - Note: this feature will use more resources when using said embeds. if you notice performance issues you can turn this feature off. - Note: if you're using a different extension that replaces the main player, you might still experience a purple screen. terms and conditions: https://sites.google.com/view/twitchpreviews-t-a-c/ © Twitch Previews. this extension is not affiliated with twitch.tv.

  • (2022-08-04) Iarla Meneses: aside from the FB channels bug (shows a lot of "Games" tabs that are supposed to be from one of the streamers I follow there), it's really useful... I'm glad someone thought about this :]
  • (2022-08-04) Leo Joo: When recording, the screen is recorded with a black screen. Is there a solution?
  • (2022-08-03) Johnny Gibbs: Homeboy put me onto this extension. Wonderful QoL updates that keep Twitch relevant (especially since Twitch won't make these changes themselves). Highly recommended.
  • (2022-08-02) JET Plays: This is one of the best Extensions ever, can use twitch without it now. Makes everything soo much more easy.
  • (2022-08-02) Devon Rumbold: Really great, but after the latest update the volume button for the video preview disappeared. Was that an intentional change, bug, or is that another issue on my end?
  • (2022-07-28) Adam W: Does anyone know how to remove the pin feature? Whenever i highlight a streamer the pin feature gets in the way of the preview, video preview in my case.
  • (2022-07-26) Gabrielle Duarte: it is very useful and interesting
  • (2022-07-25) 휘동이: I've used video preview, but it doesn't work from a few hours ago. It just keeps trying to load stream. I think twitch has changed something. Not sure though. Please check it out.

  • (2022-06-24) RFP12: Goated
  • (2022-06-22) Josiah P: Almost like a hacked client with it's own modules. Easily one of the most useful extensions for twitch regulars. Incredible

  • (2022-06-20) Eduardo Macho: muy práctico
  • (2022-06-20) Imanol Rodríguez: Muy buena aplicación, muy práctica!
  • (2022-06-19) Nevmezzi: De los mejores complementos para twitch.
  • (2022-06-15) David Gómez: It is like the best possible complement extension for Twitch when you use it regularly since almost every single function it includes are actually useful, aside from the video previews of course. However, I have a problem with them. Everytime I hover a channel for a few seconds a purple screen will appear for around 30 seconds stating that it is not Twitch and you should click on the stream instead so literally everytime you have to hang in there for half a minute. There is a chance it is a Twitch thing and not an extension issue but I wish it could be resolved somehow. That way this app would undoubtedly a 5/5.

Latest issues

  • (2020-11-23, v: Venus Alien: Can't watch preview of a stream.
    Am I missing something? I downloaded the TP Extension. It is enabled. I refreshed my Twitch tab, and any time I hover my mouse over a stream, in a game's category, there's just a loading animation, and there's never a video preview of what the person's streaming. I thought that's what the extension was supposed to do. That's why I downloaded it. Am I doing something wrong? I'm using the most up-to-date version of Google Chrome. I'm using Google Chrome for my browser on my Windows 10 device.
