Installation:

NOTE: If the Download link on the right does nothing when you click it, it is likely because of Adblock. Temporarily disable it for this page and then refresh and it should now work. Or another work around is to simply right click the download link and choose "Save link as...".

This skin uses the latest bug fixes and features of Rainmeter , so Rainmeter 3.2 or newer is required to install it. After downloading/upgrading your Rainmeter to the required version or newer, simply download and install the skin and follow the Skin Setup instructions for linking it to your Twitch account. A complete walkthrough of this setup with images can be found here: Skin Setup Walkthrough

Amazing skin! Very easy to set up and customize! +fav 
If you find the time, other design templates would be nice. For example a flat design layout. :) (Smile)

Great work!
Would you add the option to make twitch chat pop-out from the default browser?
I have this line in my livestreamer.bat:
start "Chrome" chrome --app=www.twitch.tv/%channel%/chat?p…
Looks like this:

Thank you!

The skin setup box isn't coming up correctly, only showing up when setup.ini is enabled. Once it comes up, it shows up just as text on top of whatever other windows are open. I can get to where the finish button is supposed to be clickable, but can't click it.

Is this an issue with something I'm doing, or is something bugged?

Someone else had an issue like this and it was related to Rainmeter extracting the skin to the wrong sub-folder. Do the following:

1) Confirm that the skin is extracted to this path: "Documents/Rainmeter/Skins/TwitchLiveFollowers".
2) If you see that it extracted to something like "Documents/Rainmeter/Skins/live_following_for_twitch/Skins/TwitchLiveFollowers, then copy the "TwitchLiveFollowers" folder and move it back up to the root Skins folder.
3) Then exit Rainmeter and delete the extraneous "live_following_for_twitch" folder. Start Rainmeter and right click the Rainmeter icon in your tray and choose Skins > TwitchLiveFollowers > Setup > setup.ini.
4) The skin setup should now start properly with a background behind the text.

Let me know if that works.

Thanks!

Turns out, the issue was trying to download and open directly with winRAR and move the files in manually. Once I downloaded and saved, it worked fine.

Does the VLC icon show when you mouse over a channel? If you installed Livestreamer after the Rainmeter skin, you may need to restart Rainmeter or Windows itself for it to see Livestreamer in your environment path.

The download link is not working. :(

Sorry for the late reply, and yes when I click the download button now, nothing seems to happen. You have to right click it and choose "Save link as..." for it to work. I'm going to contact DeviantArt about that problem.

Edit: The problems is because of Adblock it seems. Disable it for the page and the link should work. Or use the right click and save as method mentioned above.

Just wanted to say thanks for this. This is the best/least intrusive gui I've found for this.

One question though; is there a way to make the default click action open with livestreamer instead of the browser? I've looked through the code, but can't find it. :(

Wallboy19 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015
Not at the moment. I'll add it to my to do list though so you can have the option to always open the stream in Livestreamer.

Thanks for this great skin !

Color settings are almost perfect, specifically the color pointer to set according to the background ; however a transparency setting would be really nice :)

Bijnok Featured By Owner Edited Mar 31, 2015
Actually, to change the transparancy of colors (and colors themselves), you can go in ...\Rainmeter\Skins\TwitchLiveFollowers\resources and open colorVars.inc in your favorite text editor.

There, just add a fourth number to the desired color to change its transparency.
This number has to be between 0 (full transparency) and 255 (full opacity).
Example with the first one : colorTitleBar=107,0,50,100
Save the file and refresh your skin.

Note that any other number (greater than 255) will make the color fully transparent.
Thanks a lot for this skin again, I'll post what I've done with it later :)

The color changing addon itself has no support for transparency. This wasn't because of a technical limitation, but due to that fact that when you add transparency, it is entirely dependent on your desktop wallpaper on what it will actually look like. But yes you can manually add transparency that way, but beware if you ever use the color option changer, it may reset the field and delete the transparency once again.

Glad your enjoying the skin :)

Yeah that's what I thought about the color option changer ; I like transparency anyway, and what remains colored represents only small changes if I need to evolve :D

Here is an example of what I just did

Is there any way to hide the CMD window that pops up with livestreamer? I use a dual monitor setup and have VLC open on my second monitor automatically but that damn CMD window just pops up on my first screen every single time. Great skin, by the way - signed up to ask this.

This was something I initially was going to have as the default behavior, but decided to leave it as what Livestreamer uses as default. The command window can provide useful information such as any errors/debug info that might show up that you wouldn't know about without it. 

I'll look into adding an option that will allow you to hide the window if you really don't want it opening in a future update. Stay tuned...

I have a "live.bat" file that hide the cmd, (can't remember where I found it) ; I didn't watch your code yet but guess it's quite easy to use this bat file instead of the livestreamer executable :D

At the present time no, but it's definitely something I have on my to do list for a future update.
