Media, Shortcodes

Videos »Twitch.TV

Twitch.TV is a video-streaming service for gamers, and you can embed a stream into your site adding the [twitchtv] shortcode into a post or page.

The most basic form of the shortcode requires only the URL parameter, and looks like this:

[twitchtv url="http://www.twitch.tv/paperbat/b/323486192"]

You can also add additional parameters to customize the appearance:

  • height – defaults to 378 pixels
  • width – defaults to 620 pixels
  • autoplay – defaults to false
  • chat – defaults to false
  • chatheight – defaults to 500
  • chatwidth – defaults to 350

A more advanced shortcode would look something like:

[twitchtv url="http://www.twitch.tv/paperbat" width="400" height="244" autoplay="true" chat="true" chatwidth="400" chatheight="335"]
