Hello,

I'm experiencing the following issue which started this morning. I was utilizing 'Best' for the past week, now I can only select mobile_High as the highest quality. I tried reinstalling livestreamer in Win7 and updated to the latest VLC(2.0.8).

c:\Program Files (x86)\Livestreamer>livestreamer.exe -url http://twitch.tv/Lirik best
[cli][info] Found matching plugin justintv for URL http://twitch.tv/Lirik
[plugin.justintv][warning] rtmpdump is not usable, only HLS streams will be available
Valid streams: mobile_High, mobile_Low, mobile_Medium
error: Invalid stream specified: best

This happened because Twitch decided to rename their streams. The "best" stream is only able to exist when it can rank the streams, which in this case it can't since it uses a list of names which only includes 'mobile_high' etc and not 'mobile_High' etc.

I will force lowercase stream names in the next release to avoid this problem.
