TwitchTV archive back again!

So, one thing that wasn’t included with the new stream section was a way to view the archive from TwitchTV. You know, the archive that only lasts for about 7 days but is available immediately and automatically after everyone finishes streaming? Good for catching up, watching reruns, all that.

Well anyway, if you click the Twitch link next to the streamer you’d like to check out, it’ll take you to a page that shows you their TwitchTV archived streams, as well as all the other unclaimed archive videos below it. Neat, huh?

STREAMERS: In order to claim these archive videos, copy/paste the claim id# if there are two, just copy/paste both of them as they are with the space in between, then go to your list of streams to find and click the corresponding stream/event, edit the embed type to be “TwitchTV” and paste the ID number into the box next to it. That links the two together so people can find your streams much more easily from the TwitchTV archive. I know it’s kind of a pain right now, but eventually I’ll code in the ability to click some things to claim it and all that.

Not that anyone cares, I’ll just keep updating things all by my lonesome!

Edit: Well, I actually went through and made the claim button so it’s easier for streamers to claim their streams. Just click Claim, the system will look for a stream that starts at about the same time, and if it finds one you just click claim, and done. If it doesn’t you’ll have to do it manually, unfortunately. Still, easier if you’re doing things right around here.
