Better Youtube Live, but why?
Better chat experience
The native YouTube live chat provides an uninspiring experience for the average chatter. With Better YouTube Live you are free to customize your chat experience to the smallest detail. Also, Better YouTube Live integrates BTTV global emotes, with FFZ and 7TV coming soon too.
Simple, noise-free, live streams homepage
Youtube Live is notoriously difficult to navigate. While YouTube does live stream recommendations pretty well, it also buries your subscribed streams in a sea of recommendations. Better YouTube Live fixes this by having a dedicated page only for the content you subscribe to, no other noise, period.
Active development
Better YouTube Live is an actively developed project. Check out our roadmap here, that consists of various new features that will be added to Better YouTube Live in the very near future. Consider becoming a supporter in order to support the development of this project and also to have a more impactful say on the roadmap priorities. Read more about becoming a supporter here.
