>what is even is the difference between just typing the URL into mpv and going through streamlink?
Fucking hell, mpv on it's own doesn't stream from sites. It uses something like youtube-dl or streamlink. And you probably have youtube-dl which doesn't bypass in stream content.

hence why code should be fucking obfuscated

>> No.78485009

If they were well-timed per stream and the streamers had some control, I wouldn't mind. I actually don't care much about ads.

The issue is that ads in livestreaming often block out interesting content, ESPECIALLY preroll ads. Like, who cares about onstream ads during an eSports tournament? But you'd care if those ads literally interrupted the matches themselves.

The fact that Twitch/Amazon are so slow to implement overlay ads, which I think most people would be fine with, is bizarre. Some people absolutely hate all ads, but many companies just have this incorrect approach of "people either support everything a streamer does, including running forced ads, or they hate ads too much", which is a false dichotomy. If ads don't interrupt content, most people aren't going to care. The fact that advertisers need so much attention on their bullshit videos and stunts is just frustrating.

4-5 years ago i came to the conclusion that women should have no right to vote and not interfere in politics. women essentially should just look good and have children. i have not found 1 good proof that i were wrong for all this time and every argument against this is basically "have sex, incel".
twitch thots are a very good argument for that. imagine her only wanting to be cute, playing some cute games and chasing chad cock - but, no, i get to hear her retarded opinion and just curse anglos for giving rights to women in the beginning of the last century.

now to get back to topic: i just hope that there will be a away to remove ads when i watch twitch once in the month. i like the idea of "not using twitch at all ", but this cancer will spread if it gives twitch money. i cannot ignore this only because i do not use twitch a lot and neither should you.
