So you are a livestream that wants to livestream Minecraft (Duh! :P). However! You want to be able to communicate with users and chatters in your livestream. As a livestreamer… I know how annoying it can be to livestream and play Minecraft and to keep having to switch back and forth between Minecraft and Twitch. When I stumbled across this mod, I was so relieved that some made this, I had to review it.
This mod allows you to communicate and connect with your TwitchTV account and allows you to manage the livestream from Minecraft itself. This mod is perfectly SMP compatible and works great for keeping up with your fans.
