Will twitch support and youtube live support ever be added back in?

I really wanna be able to stream to twitch and then stream to TU so I can play netflix on my theater screen, will this ever be fixed?

It might be after Valve fixes something with the Steam web browser stuff that broke support in the first place

Do you know whether it’s possible to use any other browser in-game?

We use the CEF that’s pat of Unreal 4’s engine.

We used to hook directly into Valve’s Steam web browser because it gave us the H.264 codec. This codec is needed for playback of Twitch and YouTube Live. That codec is also extremely expensive to license.

Unfortunately, without that codec we can’t really add the support. We keep trying if the Valve Steam web browser will be fixed nearly every update. The issue is that the Steam web browser is working, until a YouTube ad happens then it crashes and doesn’t work again until you restart your game.

Couldn’t you use the openh264 standard instead of the proprietary one?
