Description : GNOME Twitch app for watching Twitch.tv streams without a browser or flash.
gnome-twitch provides a GTK3 interface for viewing streams on Twitch.
At the moment you can browse, search and view streams and change the video quality.
More features like favorites, chat and recording streams are planned.
I am aware of two alternatives to watching Twitch.tv streams without a browser: youtube-dl and livestreamer.
Those two are however command line tool which can only be used to play a specified stream, while gnome-twitch provides a graphical GNOME-style user interface with additional features such as browsing and searching streams and more features to be added later.
This will be my first package and I will need a sponsor for it when it is ready.
