Disable Host Mods #3247
I have a lot of extensions, (not all are always loaded at the same time)
When I deactivate all but BTTV, relaunch Chrome, then test the stream that's playing reruns & hosting another channel at the same time, it still flips back and forth.
at 1st it didn't make sense why twitch was continually breaking host mode disable. now with the wave of unblockable ads it makes sense. every time a streamer hosts someone else, it gives twitch the excuse to hit every viewer with a new wave of pre-roll ads, whether the viewer wants to see the new streamer or not. blocking host mode denies them that revenue.
currently disable Hosting works when you are loading a stream that is off-line. however if you're watching a stream that is live and the streamer Starts hosting someone, you get Hit with pre-roll ads at a minimum.
