Seems like livestreamer is dead, switched to streamlink.

Twitch now requires clients to send it a Client-ID http header, which is why twitch-curses stopped working. Seems this change broke livestreamer as well. I registered on their javascript abomination of a website and acquired a client id. I fed it to both twitch-curses and livestreamer http requests, so everything should now work again.

I see. I changed the PKGBUILD so that the source file has the version number appended to its name after downloading. I hope this fixes it.

When I remove the files that pacaur has cached it updates fine. But when there are cached files, pacaur thinks it can use the cached version of the script. Yaourt does not cache files by default, thats why you don't have that problem. Could you modify the package, so that AUR wrappers realize changes in 'twitch-curses.py', so they won't use cached files?

That's weird, the only thing I changed in the AUR repo was the version (1.0-4 to 1.1-1). I always just arbitrarily increase the version in AUR whenever I add anything of importance upstream. The package got upgraded without issue on my machine (using yaourt).

Anyways, if anyone was wondering, there's now a manual stream selector if the desired stream quality is not available. Before, it simply passed the 'best' option to livestreamer as a fallback. However, as anyone watching ti6 dota2 championships must have noticed, some streams are special snowflakes where none of the standard options work and livestreamer can't figure out which of the available streams is the best.

When I upgrade this package with 'pacaur -Syu' it doesn't seem to upgrade the twitch-curses script. I have to manually replace the file. I don't know if this is intended, or if I am doing something wrong, but I thought I'd let you know.

This is absolutely amazing and works like a charm. Well done.

Whoops, thanks for the heads up. Fixed.

This is missing the "python-pycurl" dependency
