Full changelog

A new release with plugin updates and fixes, including Twitch.tv (see #2680), which had to be delayed due to back and forth API changes.

In order to not introduce breaking changes, both parameters have been kept in this release and the user name will still be logged when using an OAuth token, but receiving item drops or accessing restricted streams is not possible anymore.

Plugins for the following sites have also been added:

  • albavision
  • news.now.com
  • twitcasting.tv
  • viu.tv
  • vlive.tv

Full changelog

0.4.0 of Streamlink!

114 commits since the last release and a lot has changed.

In general, we've added some localization as well as an assortment of new plugins.

We've also introduced a change for Streamlink to not check for new updates each time Streamlink starts. We found this feature annoying as well as delaying the initial start of the stream. This feature can be re-enabled by the command line.

The major features of this release are:

  • New plugins added
  • Ongoing support to current plugins via bug fixes
  • Ensure retries to HLS streams
  • Disable update check

Many thanks to all contributors who have contributed in this release!
