NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade streamlink-twitch-gui -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade streamlink-twitch-gui -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Streamlink Twitch GUI

A multi platform Twitch.tv browser for Streamlink
Browse Twitch.tv and watch streams in your video player of choice

A graphical user interface (GUI) on top of the Streamlink command line interface (CLI).
Built with NW.js, a web application platform written in JavaScript (EmberJS), HTML (Handlebars), and CSS (LessCSS). Powered by Chromium and Node.js.

Features

  • Available on Windows, macOS and Linux
  • Watch streams in the video player of your choice via Streamlink
  • Watch multiple streams at once
  • Browse streams by popularity, game, channel or team
  • Access your followed streams and channels
  • Filter streams by channel- or broadcasting language
  • Receive desktop notifications when new streams start
  • Join the Twitch chat by using customizable chat applications
  • Rich settings menu with lots of customizations and presets
  • Individual channel settings
  • Available in multiple languages
  • Automatic or custom selection of light and dark themes
  • Customizable hotkeys
  • Command line parameters for automation purposes

Why?

One of the reasons for having bad viewing experiences on Twitch.tv is the implementation of their resource-heavy website and HTML5 video player. Especially on mobile desktop devices, high CPU and memory usage and lack of GPU acceleration of the web browser can cause major issues like buffering, stuttering or low video playback frame rates, all while draining the device’s battery and spinning up its fans. Even on desktop computers, watching streams on Twitch.tv while multi-tasking can be an issue.

With Streamlink Twitch GUI you’re not dependent on your web browser and streams can be watched in the video player of your choice, enabling a smooth video playback. Depending on your choice of player, additional features become available, like for example timeshift support or resolution/framerate upscaling. In addition to that, Streamlink’s variable stream buffers will help you countering bad network conditions or reducing the stream’s latency even further.

Please bear in mind that you’re bypassing any ads run by Twitch.tv by using this software. If you want to support Twitch or a single broadcaster, please consider buying Twitch Prime or subscribing to the broadcaster’s channel. Thank you!

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
