How to use the Multiwatch tool?
This is done with just a few clicks!
1. Enter your desired channel names in the "channelname"-Box.
Make sure that the channel name is spelled correctly! If a streamer is called XYZ-1, the - (minus / dash) sign must be added! Without the minus sign, the channel will not be found. You also have to respect upper and lower case.
2. Select the platform on which the streamer can be found.
3. Press "Start Multiwatch"!
4. A new page will be loaded, which shows your streams.
How to find the stream name?
For Twitch, SmashCast and Mixer.com the following applies:
This is usually always in the URL, which is in your address bar.
You're watching the stream from Hoerli. The address bar now shows e.g. https://twitch.tv/hoerli
So the channel name here is hoerli
We offer two options for YouTube.
You can enter the channel via video URL or by channel name.
A video URL is structured like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTH8yPp1Fr4
. The Video-URL for this Stream is mTH8yPp1Fr4
, that you need to insert here on the page.
If you want to enter the channel name, enter the exact channel name in the field (e.g. Hoerli). But make sure that the channel name really exists and that this is not a display name.
If the channel operator has not set a clear name for the channel name, you can add it by channel ID. You can find out a channel ID using the channel URL.
This is structured as follows: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZHAeCpvf4Cw7D1Oh3MAlbw
. In this case UCZHAeCpvf4Cw7D1Oh3MAlbw
is the Channel-ID.
For DailyMotion we currently only offer the option of a video URL. The insertion is exactly the same.
Now if you want to share your Multiwatch setup with your friends, just copy the link in the address bar and send it to your friends!
They just have to open the link and see the same stream structure as you do.
(The link must start with https://multiwatch.net or https://multiwat.ch/!)
Does the tool work on any device?
We designed the tool so slim that it should work on any HTML5-enabled device.
We tried the tool on PCs, tablets, smartphones and Fire TVs. It works everywhere!
A tip for Fire TV users and TVs with a browser: Uses a mouse if messages should appear in the stream player. This cannot be reached with the remote control.
