    too bad, liked the chat with the pirate broadcasts. Search arcaoni for his efforts of continuing his broadcasting on other sites.

    Not too fast, if it wasn't for Justin.tv there would be no Twitch at all

    Hardly used Justin TV.
    Well, every site eventually has its end.

    Twitch.TV won't be far behind at the rate it's going. Google is shitting on streamers so hard right now.

    But Let's Players allow me to enjoy video games on non-piratable consoles without paying for them.

    Freedom of religion is a powerful thing ;)
    My religion just happens to be ALPA (Anti Lets Play Alliance). The goal of course, is to be similar to a neo nazi and gas all the lets players :tpi:

    Basically, all videos remain active for a week (or something like that), they are scanning all archived recordings for copyrighted audio even if you paid for it and they are trying to force streamers into using their premium service.

    All archived videos get deleted after like 1 or 2 months, can't remember. And if they detect third party audio, a 30 minute block of the recording gets muted.

    the writing was on the wall. Justin.TV was mainly used for unauthorized TV channel broadcasts from major networks. I remember watching Shark Week programming entirely on a site hosted on a Justin.TV video. the only people sad were the TV broadcast watchers. Who seriously used it for legit purposes?
