    Please make a video like this for YouTube Gaming streams. I left Twitch to stream on YouTube and would like to use this.

    would of been handy if you slow down the pace of the video so people can keep up instead of having to view it a few times

    I had to enter \.twitch in the setup instead of just .twitch as shown in this video in order to get it to work with the most current version of WordPress. I got an error without it.

    The plugin hasn't been updated and with Twitch's API change this widget no longer works.
