Could you give us a little more information? e.g have you upgraded to the most recent version?

I just used pip install streamlink to install it today (so I believe it's newest version?), but later found that there is no streamlinkrc config file under %APPDATA%\streamlink\. The folder itself exists.

In the document it said "On Windows there is a default config created by the installer but on any other platform you must create the file yourself." I'm indeed on Windows (7 64-bit to be exact).

A bunch of the Windows documentation is out of date since we're working on rebuilding how the installer works. Documentation changes and other notes are being mentioned over in #78

pip install streamlink doesn't use the installer, so I don't think it ever created the livestreamerrc file. Nothing in the setup.py indicates that it did. Now the installer should create that file, so I'll work on doing that.

livestreamerrc can be renamed and placed in \AppData\Roaming\streamlink
This config works but needs a little editing. http://pastebin.com/Q5KbgRpj

@sbstp It might be worth reviewing this note from @Skibicki for a config.

So all I need to so is rename livestreamerrc to streamlinkrc and place it in the roaming/streamlink folder?
