Hello today I am going to show you how to disable twitch ads on chrome, firefox and opera.

firefox ppl
Click me if you are a firefox user

chrome ppl
Click me if you are a chrome user

This extension also uses the old version of twitch chat so BetterTwitchTV works again! But you have to edit the BTTV settings from regular twitch chat.

There also some cool settings to configure the buffering, by default they will give you a delay compared to normal twitch so just turn those numbers to their minimum to remove delay.

tested on chrome, works. Gotta get used to the almost fullscreen and lack of quick access to the sidebar but i'd rather have no ads and BTTV settings than that, thanks

if you just use the quick access sidebar to see who is live I recommend Twitch Now

deguopera?

yeah it's exactly the same as chrome, just go to extensions page, click developer mode and load unpacked extension

I don't know if anyone else gets this issue, but I've used twitch5 in the past and I couldn't get into my bttv settings when a stream was active, could only get to it if a stream was offline, so just be mindful of that.

go to a non Twitch 5 stream like this and then go to settings

Ive been using twitch 5 for a while now and its great that it blocks those. The reason adblockers can't block those ads is because twitch embeds them directly into their player instead of loading them separately.

yeah the only twitch people i watch are broke tf2 streamers so i don't necessarily want to block ads. sometimes twitch says 'this ad supports shade' but i don't know if it's bullshit

you can also pipe twitch streams directly to the video player of your choice, which is quite nice imo

https://github.com/streamlink/streamlink

once you set the path in ur environment variables you can just type into a command prompt to start a stream

you can even open up a chat box with a small .bat script at the same time

start chrome --app=https://www.twitch.tv/popout/%1/chat?popout=
streamlink twitch.tv/%1 best

needless to say this bypasses ads in their entirety and you only get the stream

so if you put those two lines in a "twitch.bat" for example, you could type in cmd "twitch etherr_" and it would open up his stream in ur video player and his chat simultaneously

edit: make the bat script work for any passed twitch name
