New in Twitch Leecher 1.4.2 (October 3rd, 2017)

New in Twitch Leecher 1.4.1 (September 1st, 2017)

  • Important Change:
  • Twitch Leecher could not find every channel because it used a wrong API method. This could happen especially if the login name and display name of a channel differ. From now on Twitch Leecher uses the correct API method in order to find a channel. This API method only works with the LOGIN NAME. So if your login name on Twitch is "SomeGuysLoginName" and your channel display name is "SomeGuysChannelName" you will find your videos only with "SomeGuysLoginName".

  • Mouse wheel support
  • Up/Down arrow key support

  • Option to select only videos of today
  • New load limit options are configurable in the preferences
  • Fixed Bugs:
  • TL could not find all channels (see important info above)
  • Source quality was not selected as default in some cases
  • Grammar police visited some text fragments
  • Changes:
