Embedding content, Media, Shortcodes

Videos »Twitch.tv

Twitch.tv, commonly known as Twitch, 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 true
  • muted – defaults to false
  • time – Start at a given time (videos only). Use this format: time=”1h2m3s”

A more advanced shortcode would look something like:

[twitchtv url="http://www.twitch.tv/paperbat" width="400" height="244" autoplay="false" muted="true"]
