Tired of all the Twitch advertisements and shit like cheers, emotes and other crap? Then check out Streamlink Twitch GUI! A neat side-effect is that you get less buffering and faster loading times, since this program is optimized to work with external players which only loading the plain video (without any annoyance).
Streamlink Twitch GUI is an alternative way to browse Twitch without any Browser, you get a minimalistic interface which brings back the focus - on the streamer and not on Twitch which is more and more only focused how to get more money out of their streamers which doing the real work.
That said advertisements are okay but they shouldn’t annoy you or ending in buffering, this is why you should consider to give this program a try. Sadly Twitch integrates more and more gimmicks which disturbs the users, which only want to see the streams and not the latest Amazon Alexa announcement.
A detailed installation instruction guidance can be found in the official Wiki page. You need to install steamlink.
If you have everything setup correctly and gave the program the path to the video player you can click on a stream and it should open it into a new video window. That’s basically it you can now watch Twitch without garbage, the pure stream without any annoying buffering or other garbage.
The program can be trusted, it’s open source and maintained by a lot of people, a neat feature is that you can enjoy your stream without been disturbed by advertisements.
Twitch is going more and more to shit after they integrated stuff like cheers and other crap which doesn’t help the streamer, moreover to help Twitch to get more and more money - the page buffers and is slow because Twitch adds tons of 3rd-party domains to their pages to deliver amazon ads and trying to track every move your made - this is the reason I say stop and which made me switch to programs like Streamlink Twitch GUI.
The program is a must if you often watch Twitch streams and if you only want to watch your favourite streamer.
