So basically because of the whole Twitch nonsense thing I thought I'd go and test some alternative sources for Dominion streamers to explore should they wish. If this winds up being a decent option this will likely be my new stream thread/home; and I'll update it later as such. So feel free to stop in and help me figure out all the pros/cons of this route.

Also be aware that I cannot use Mic at the moment because my headset is fragged. Technically Kero's computer is behaving but there's a strong chance I won't be able to chat during the games themselves if it goes wonky.

Thanks for your time/patience.

Pretty good. Only thing I didn't like is that logging with Facebook is not working it keep asking me to login when I want to follow or chat

So for anyone curious here's what I think after a session with Hitbox.

-Basically seems to be a smoother version of Twitch.

-From what I've been told popping out a stream is a lot more seamless than Twitch.

-Also apparently the Broadcaster gets a slightly larger font size than everyone else. So you have some form of room control that way in terms of getting the important text through.

-On that note...you can IP Ban people from your stream. Much <3's for this feature. Sure it's not a perfect ban but it helps keep most trolls from simply re-making accounts to spam your channel with.

-The Dashboard is much better. You basically get Partner functionality from Twitch for free. It has tools for Social Media advertising, making sticky notes, polls, and even Giveaway tools. There's even tools to run ads. Why you'd want to as a freebie...dunno. But apparently you can.

-Yes, you can make recordings. No, I am not sure how long these last. I still need to test this feature.

Personally...I think I really will swap over to this one. Even if Twitch suddenly says "Just kidding!" about their new policy I think this site has better tools and aesthetics. Thanks everyone that stopped in today~.

They deleted a lot of VODs w/o warning ****ing over a lot of Speed Runner's VODs.

They are now scanning VODs for music that isn't independant (getting plenty of false positives) and when they find it they mute your VOD in 30 minute intervals.

They limited the length of VODs ****ing over a lot of Speed Runners.

I have access to my roommates computer for the week and will be trying to stream for once. Maybe I'll try out hitbox since it is all pretty much the same to me.
