ATTENTION - BREAKING CHANGE TO SUB-ONLY VIDEOS
If you have downloaded sub-only videos in the past, you probably came across the infamous
410 (gone) error. With this release Twitch Leecher is not capable of downloading sub-only videos anymore. Twitch changed the way those videos can be accessed. At this point we have to respect Twitch for taking care of the streamers' rights to protect their content.
I know there are some tools out there that still work in certain conditions and there are some workarounds that also make it possible to download sub-only content for a short period of time with older versions of Twitch Leecher.
Those tools or workarounds use either very dirty and hacky code that is extremely prone to fail in the future or they do not work in every scenario (2-factor authentication with the Authy app for example). I want to provide a good and alyways working tool for my users so I refrain from implementing such functionality.
If you think you found a good workaround, please don't post a new issue or send me an email unless you have read and understood the following GitHub issue from top to bottom: Issue #419
- The login system has been completely removed since it was only required for sub-only videos
- The Installer does not install .NET Framework 4.8 automatically anymore since the automaic installation process caused problems on various systems in the past. You need to make sure .NET Framework 4.8 is already installed before running the Twitch Leecher installer, otherwise it will fail with a message telling you to install it first.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 is part of Windows 10 version 1903 and above
This update TRIES to fix the "410 (gone)" issue. The fix is not well tested and nobody really knows if it is "legit". Don't be surprised if it reappeares shortly. And please stop sending me emails about the issue, thx :D
