Attention All Twitch Streamers: Twitch is renaming video URLs
« on: February 22, 2016, 08:48:37 am »
Thanks to Scott Cunningham for bring this to my attention a few moments ago.

Twitch has started renaming the URLs of old highlights (which probably means they're re-encoding the video itself as well). If you have an old highlight that uses this format:

http://www.twitch.tv/xelnia_games/c/3775337

it probably looks like this now:

http://www.twitch.tv/xelnia_games/v/46728780

The big difference is the change from the "/c" format to the "/v" format. So, if you've shared/posted your old highlights somewhere you might want to go back and update the links (which I'll be doing on the HSL soon).

When Twitch deleted all their Justin.tv videos I lost respect for them as a company.  They have no appreciation for the history of their videos.

If it's a stream or highlight that I truly care about, I export to youtube and/or download the video to my computer.  I also record locally to my computer as I stream.    Can't trust these people!   <Tim>
