    Embedded Twich link errors

    Even if you would just link to someone's stream on Twitch, it will automatically become an embedded video. Though this will not work on live feeds, only VODs. The same also happens if you would for example link a specific game page, which has no video playing at all on the page. And if you would choose to "View on Twitch" (Button right on the video feed) you'll be taken to an incorrect page as the embedded video link will be changed as well.

    Removing the www will however work, such as http://twitch.tv/directory/game/Dragster

    But adding it in will have this effect: https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Dragster

    And the link will change to (with me removing www): https://twitch.tv/v/directory?t=

    Edit: And now when I posted this it didn't embed the video at all? I'm confused...

    Hey Tomas,

    I learned a while back from some of member nads' replies to submission threads that if you add "secure" in front of the twitch.tv, it'll link the archive/video/highlight, without embedding it. Please see my signature for example. You'll no doubt see the embed in some folks' signatures, such as members Danman and Francois, as I don't think they utilized this addition to the web address. The only thing I'm not sure about are Twitch clips, I've yet to try any of those. Also, I know for a fact it doesn't work with YouTube video links. As far as I can tell, those always end up embedded for the most part. When in doubt, I recommend clicking on the Preview Post button before you post. Hope this helps! :)

    P.S. If you go to your profile page, on the left hand side, you may add your Twitch channel so that when you stream, others will be able to see when you go live here on Twin Galaxies' active streamers list and the Shout Box.
