[Support] Live Stream Notifier

(Martin Giger) #1

This is the support and feedback thread for Live Stream Notifier.

Please consider http://streamnotifier.ch/help before posting here.


Plugin fails to open a hosted channel on twitch.tv through livestreamer, because it tries to open with a link to channel that is hosting rather than the one being hosted. It works when plugin opens a tab to original channel, because twitch.tv automatically redirects to the channel being hosted.

That is known and “correct” behavior for right now, since livstreamer decided not to follow hosting redirects. I hope to correct the channel the extension gives to livestreamer by the next version, however since I don’t have a complete plan on how to solve it I can’t promise it yet. See also https://github.com/freaktechnik/justintv-stream-notifications/issues/118.

My personal work-around is to search the channel in the explore tab and open it with livestreamer from there.

Thanks for the report!

Is it possible to import list of followed channels?

I was forced to reinstall windows. Mozilla sync service installed Live Stream Notifier automatically to new windows instance but my channels list is empty now.

Can I import somehow my old list or manually copy from old files? I have Windows.OLD stored with all previous settings but i cant find where this list is saved.

Hi Tjay

Sadly it is not yet possible to have the data of the extension backed up, especially not if you don’t have access to the running version anymore.

If you could get your old profile running again, you can export a list of all channels by shift + clicking on the help button in the channels manager, however there is currently no way to import that.

If you follow channels on the platforms with a user profile, you can just re-add that profile/user to get all of them back.

Shift + Help click does nothing for me :frowning: but anyway its not the solution for a problem. Even if this export works it gives me nothing if I cant import it back. I have to manually add all channels one by one.

And I dont use user account to copy followed channels either. Main reason im using this addon is that I dont need to really follow anything on twitch or hitbox. Its clean and easy way to see who is live without using real account or maibox and avoiding all that spamfest from those portals :slight_smile:

So, even without import feature its still fantastic for me. Keep up good work, and maybe backup and import option in the future updates :wink:

@TJay I hope you enjoy the new import & export system in 3.5.0 :smiley:
