Since releasing Broadcast PRO 2.0 earlier this year – our flagship WordPress Theme for Twitch Streamers – we’ve also been hard at work releasing WordPress plugins for Twitch Streamers – for those users who are looking for a way to embed twitch streams in their WordPress site.
Twitch Player PRO works in a very similar manner to Twitch Wall and Twitch Rail, with a couple of key differences. The layout and style of Twitch Player is obviously very different, with one large featured stream on the left and a list of streamers alongside it on the right.
Twitch Player PRO
[getTwitchPlayer] shortcode has been deprecated. Please install the new StreamWeasels Twitch Integration plugin and use the new [streamweasels] shortcode like this:
We hope that this specific layout will be more desirable to users who are looking to feature a lot of streams, but don’t want them to take up a ton of space on the page like Twitch Wall does.
As with all our plugins, there is of course a free version of Twitch Player PRO which you can get directly through the WordPress plugins page – there are more details on that here – Free Twitch Player for WordPress.
As a first for us – the free version of Twitch Player does allow you to show both online and offline streams in your WordPress site (something we usually only make available in our PRO plugins). However, the total amount of streams you can show with our free plugin is limited to 5.
