Social Stream Chat Overlay

February 20

  • Added a 'download wait list' button to Social Stream

February 19

  • By default, text to speech will not read out http link URLs anymore, instead it will just say "link"

February 18

February 13

  • Tenor gif support added to Social Stream (so now its giphy and tenor supported)

  • The first beginnings of Twitch websocket support done; more to go tho

February 11

  • You can block the host/bots from showing up in chat now via the general-settings section, rather than the dock section, in Social Stream. This is to provide bot blocking support for the new direct to featured chat option

February 8

  • riverside.fm support added to Social Stream, along with an opt-out option for it

  • Improved the auto-scrolling logic to account for very long messages

  • Fixed an issue with Zoom and the Social Stream standalone app not working

  • Fixed an issue with ffz extensions on twitch and Social Stream

February 4

  • Emotes wall works with &server mode now (rather than p2p)

  • Messages deleted on twitch or YouTube should auto delete in Social Stream also now (fixed some bugs on Twitch, improved extension support, YouTube support is new)

January 31

  • Initial support for megaphonetv.com has been added to Social Stream

  • The text to speech language drop down menu for Social Stream now will set &voice filter parameter, along with the &lang parameter

    • So it selects now not just the language, but also the voice, (Google vs. Microsoft vs. gendered voices; not just "en-us")

  • Added an option to Social Stream that let guests in chat auto-queue their own message.

    • In the extension menu you can set the command or you can just add &selfqueue=!queue to the dock.html page, with the string you want to be the command

  • Fixed a bug that prevented Social Stream from sending messages to Twitter live chat or Instagram live chat

January 30

  • truffle.tv support added to Social Stream

  • Added support for BTTV to YouTube (Social Stream)

    • This doesn't show the BTTV chat emojis in the YouTube chat itself, but rather adds the BTTV emotes in the Social Stream dock page.

    • The hope is to add more sites and 7tv, plus others over time, but this is a start

January 26

  • mixlr.com support added to Social Stream

January 24

  • Social Stream can make use of this new &lanonly mode also.

    • The dock.html, index.html, and the extension itself have toggles you can enable

    • You'll want to enable all three &lanonly toggles ideally, to ensure full coverage

    • This allows you to use Social Stream within a corporate network or on a single computer, without as much worry of it getting hacked due to a leaked session ID

    • If using &server mode, that will bypass this feature of course, as server mode isn't p2p

January 20

  • You can now merge multiple Social Stream extension sources into a single dock, so for example, two different computers capturing chat with two different extensions installed can combine their results into a single dock.html page.

    • To use, just comma separate the session IDs, ie: dock.html?session=aaaaaaaaaaa,bbbbbbbbbb.

    • If using a password, it will need to be the same with both session IDs currently

    • There may be other odd conflicts/quirks here or there if you use this feature, and only the dock.html has this support atm.

January 19

  • Added &exclude as an option for the Social Stream dock.html page:

    • ie: &exclude=facebook,twitch

    • Lets you hide messages from specific sources; comma separated values accepted.

January 18

  • Added a search bar option to Social Stream; with so many parameters these days, being able to quickly find a parameter I hope is helpful

  • YouNow has some events added in

  • Name filtering now works with names containing special characters

January 16

  • The option to auto-grab tweets in Twitter (X) has been added (Social Stream)

January 15

  • Added options to create custom auto-responses, based on custom triggering command. (Social Stream)

    • Up to 10 triggers/responds combos can be made

January 12

  • Added &autoshow as an option for the featured chat page (index.html) in Social Stream

January 10

January 6

  • Moderators within Social Stream are now considered members, as previously mods who were also members were not treated as so.

    • I'll try to sort it out so mods that aren't members aren't treatsed as members, but this will take some more time.

  • Added the option to add "replying to @userhere:" to captured messages in Social Stream when a message is a response.

    • Currently just works with Twitch, but it's a start.

January 5

  • Twitter post support fixed in Social Stream

January 3

  • &onlyfrom added as an option to the Social Stream dock.

    • You can pass a source type, which will the only show messages in the dock from those sources.

    • There is already &onlytwitch, but this allows for something like &onlyfrom=facebook or custom options.

2023

December 29

  • Updated Social Stream so it supports Vimm's WebSockets mode

December 18

  • Fixed the threads.net support on Social Stream. (the star button manually adds the post to the dock)

    • Also added an insta-hide and -block button to threads; cause why not.

    • Canadian users aren't blocked from linking out.

December 17

  • In Social Stream, you can now disable the ability for someone with a dock link to respond to chat.

    • This toggle option is in the general-mechanics section.

December 10

  • Added a "Clear All" button, which will clear the dock of all messages (excluding pinned), stop TTS, clear any queue, and clear the current featured chat.

    • Useful if you need an emergency clear button, in case someone spams the chat with something offensive or you are going live and want to clear your test messages

    • A sample on how to use this clear via an API is provided in the sampleapi.html page; ie: https://api.overlay.ninja/SESSIONIDHERE/clear

  • &excludefiltered can be added to the dock.html page in Social Stream to prevent filtered messages from auto-featuring, when auto feature is on.

December 9

  • Fixed an issue with the emoji wall and not all icons being the same size.

  • Twitch chat pop out will not forward to the new chat site on stream end; it will stay on the original chat site despite a raid.

  • Some trival Twitch events can be optionally highlighted in the dock; twitch events like a viewers first time speaking in chat.

  • I've added code that tries to disable messages from being picked up still after the pop up has been forwarded to a new chat stream during a raid. You'll need to refresh the chat in this case to get it working again. This should help prevent chat messages from someone else's channel accidentally being picked up.

  • Fixed an issue with discord avatars not working anymore in social stream; plus an issue re: name/message blocking not working with Discord.

  • Improved support for YouNow.

December 4

  • shareplay.tv added to Social Stream

December 2

  • Live.space fix out for Social Stream, along with an opt-in channel feature, to avoid picking up chat from other channels

November 28

  • Added the TTS menu to

  • Padding improvements and "member for N months" added to featured chat badge

  • jaco.live added to Social Stream

  • Google font options added to the hypemeter, wait list, etc, as well now; plus fixes

November 23

  • The Extension version of Social Stream also has had some bug fixes pushed; an error related to user blocking caused some bot action to fail.

November 21

  • Added dozens of new advanced transition in/out effects for the dock.html page.

    • Video of the transitions effects mentioned above

  • You can specify a Google font in Social Stream now; works for the dock or the featured chat page.

  • &padding=5 added as an option to the dock page now; you can also enable it via the menu. this adds vertical spacing to the lines.

    • In this case , it's padding=5, but that's 5px x 2 = 10px pixels total. 5 is the default for &padding, but you can specify your own amount

    • I also modified the default vertical padding, even if not using &padding; there's now a small bit of extra padding to make things a bit more readable

  • Fixed an issues where the session IDs still were not saving in some cases. Hopefully that's fixed now, after updating the extension.

November 20

  • For those so inclined to make their own overlays for Social Stream from scratch, I've created a basic and bare HTML template for reference.

    • No functions like TTS or customization via URL parameters; it's just a simple fixed overlay with minimal code.

    • It can be used as a featured overlay or as a dock-alternative, with all messages. see the code for reference.

November 17

  • Pushed an update for Firefox and the Social Stream extension; it brings back basic Firefox support to the extension.

    • You'll need to installed it via the about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox page as a temporary extension I guess? Or self-sign it.

November 12

  • The hide/only Twitch option for Social Stream added to the index.html page also now.

  • Twitch subs work again as 'stream events' that you can capture.

  • More Easter eggs added to the Twitter integration.

November 10

Social Stream updates

  • Added an option to hide or limit to just Twitch chat.

    • Works for just the dock.html page currently; if you need it for other things, let me know.

    • This could be helpful if you wanted two dock pages open; one for an OBS with Twitch output and one OBS with an output for everything else.

    • You can also use the "filter messages" text bar in the dock menu to do th same, using source:youtube if you wanted to just show youtube, or source:!youtube if you wanted anything but YouTube chat.

    • tl;dr; Twitch officially allows simulcasting now, but not consolidated chat, so this I hope might help with that.

  • Also updated the Social Stream standalone app; https://github.com/steveseguin/social_stream/releases/tag/0.1.4 (mac/win64)

    • It's still very much in 'just a preview test" mode, though I've trying to work thru all the issues. Please bare with me if you have issues with it.

November 9

November 5

Social Stream updates

October 22

  • I'm putting out a "still-in-development preview" version of the Social Stream Standalone app -- I've been poking at this project for the past year, and due to frequent requests for it I'm making it available as a preview-build. -- I'd say 90% of the features available in the extension work in this standalone version, with the interface about 50% done. -- Available as an installer for Windows x64 only at this point, but a Mac build is probably not far off.

https://github.com/steveseguin/social_stream/releases/tag/0.0.1

October 12

  • Improved &floatup; supports &showtime now, to control speed, plus OBS fixes.

  • caffeine.tv support added to Social Stream.

  • Facebook sticker support added to Social Stream

  • Added an option to filter for 'members' to the dock's menu

September 8

August 29

August 28

August 25

  • Added initial support for language localizations to Social Stream. -- So far some pop-up menu text and a few Twitch/YouTube donation labels are supported -- I've added a "test" translation file, with a couple translations added, to try it out -- Actual translations for other languages still need to be actually added. (difficulty level: 3/10) -- (German was added*)

On Social Stream now:

  • If you delete a message as a mod/host on Twitch, it will now propagate to the Dock, deleting all messages from that user in the dock. (other chat sites will be added eventually). Future messages from that user will not be blocked though.

  • If you right click on a message, you'll have an option to block a user now. It will propagate to other open docks automatically, however, these blocks will reset after a page reload unless you have the Hide and block specified users toggle enabled. Users blocked via right-clicking will be added to that block list, but you'll need to toggle it on for it to persist on each page load.

  • Adding a user to the Hide and block specified users will have it retroactively delete all messages from that user from all open docks.

    https://socialstream.ninja/dock.html?session=XXXXXXX&transparent  <= example of what you can use in the EC app; &transparent is recommended.

March 22

March 19

  • IRC support added to Social Stream via https://webchat.quakenet.org/.

  • tellonym.me support added to Social Stream.

March 17

Social Stream update:

  • &helpermode added to Social Stream, which lets a synced dock user set pins/queues, but not control the featured chat requests. Helpful if you need someone to manage your messages for you while live.

(note that the target is not null in this case, but 'Twitch') You can use this to perhaps trigger a command that's Twitch specific or send custom messages based on the site.

March 3

February 28

February 25

Social Stream updates for today:

  • When turning off autoshow, the auto-show queue will stop and clear.

  • Some of the new tweaks made to the UX includes the option to immediately "stop" voice-to-speak, if you accidentally enable it. You can also right-click a message to enable TTS on it, and none others. If you need the old version of the dock.html page still, it's available at socialstream.ninja/dock2.html

  • Telegram.com/z/ for Social Stream also patched a bit; now if you specify a host-name in the menu, it will use that as your telegram name (rather than not know it)

  • Submitted an application to gain access to the YouTube chat API; wrote some code into VDO.Ninja / Social Stream to support it. I'm trying to see if I can offer a secondary way to access YouTube/Twitch chat data streams without an extra window open.

  • Added a parameter called &twolines to the dock.html page, which puts the name/avatar of the guest on its own line

  • Fixed Twitch support on chat.overlay.ninja (the older / alternative Social Stream extension)

  • Social Stream can now filter out messages starting with ! ; it's a toggle option that's useful to filtering out bot commands on Twitch/FB chat,etc.

  • Added a toggle to hide !commands from chat in Social Stream

January 6

2022

December 30

  • You can choose to include or block non-chat events from the social stream feed now, like "John joined the stream". It only works on a few sites currently, but more can be added in time. (tiktok, for example, included)

  • When using &autoshow, there's a small queue now, so if there's a sudden spike of messages, up to around 30-seconds of messages will be queued before being skipped.

December 24

  • Right clicking a message in socialstream will show a menu now, where you can pin/queue or even now Delete a message. Delete will auto-delete from all docks, even if &sync isn't used, this way its more intuitive when trying to delete a message from an OBS dock overlay.

  • Support for @mention added to Mixcloud for Socialstream+touch, by means of providing the username that scripts can respond to (by user request).

  • &alignbottom added to the Socialstream dock; this aligns the message stream to the bottom by default, rather than top.

  • Added &transparent (versus the new &hideshadow), which can be useful for loading Socialstream into non-OBS studios.

September 2

  • Socialstream bug fixes, along with donation support added to Mixcloud.

August 31

  • Added workplace.com support to Social Stream

  • The queue-order of messages now is visible with little numbers on the left-side of the message. Changes to the queue are synced across docks when using &sync

  • slido.com support added to chat.overlay.ninja

August 26

  • New features for SocialStream.ninja, by requests - option to sync multiple docks has been added. Add &sync to the docks that you want to share state between, and if enabled, when one dock selects a message, the other dock then treats that message locally as if it was already pressed, so they know what the other dock selected. (syncing queues I'll try to add later on)

  • Added option to strip HTML from the dock as a URL parameter (rather than at the point of capture in the extension). Applies to donations, messages, and usernames.

August 23

  • Added the option to send featured-chat messages from SocialStream's dock to the overlay page via a websocket server, in case the viewing destination doesn't support webrtc. (by request)

August 22

  • Updated socialstream.ninja to support &password. You need to set the password via the extension settings page, which is a bit hidden.

August 17

  • Added theta.tv support to socialstream.ninja (via its pop out chat).

  • Added support for LinkedIn "live" to socialstream.ninja (already had support for linkedin events).

August 9

  • Minnit and livepush are social chat sources that have been added to socialstream.ninja (by request).

  • chat.overlay has had an issue with messages auto-clearing after a minute fixed.

July 27

  • Fixed some style issues with socialstream; mainly related to donos from twitch.

  • Added a new option called &autoshowdonos, which when used with &autoshow, will auto feature highly donation messages.

  • Added a new "send test message" to socialstream's extension menu (at the bottom) -- it lets you emulate an inbound social message for quick testing/setup.

July 25

  • Added an option to align messages near center. &split (socialstream feature)

  • Added some polish to the Facebook integration and dock layout as well; tweaking issues here and there

July 22

July 15

  • Fixed some issues with discord integration on socialstream

  • Improved mac support for text-to-speech feature in socialstream

  • Added &chroma=0f0 as a URL option for socialstream; lets you set the background colors for the pages. Defaults to green for chroma keying

June 28

  • Socialstream and chat.overlay have been updated to support YouTube gift sponsorships

June 25

  • Added support for dlive.tv, mobcrush, and picarto.tv live chat to the socialstream.ninja extension

  • Fixed support for Facebook with socialstream.ninja; also optimized the code to reduce CPU load a bit

June 16

  • Socialstream.Ninja was updated to support more languages when using text-to-speech. As in, it no longer says "says" when reading out messages in anything but English, since 'says' wasn't being translated correctly. This patch should auto-update.

May 22

  • Added badge support to Social Stream (so far Twitch, YouTube, Facebook supported)

May 9

May 5

  • Introduced another performance optimizations to the way YouTube avatars are handled, which I hope will reduce the load caused by heavy YouTube chat streams.

May 4

  • Fixed an issue with doubling of some messages when using socialstream.ninja on Facebook.

May 2

  • socialstream.ninja supports text-to-speech with the docking page also now; this auto reads out-loud most inbound messages automatically, including donations. This feature is useful when you can't read the chat, such as when playing a VR game, but still want to follow what's going on. Not advised to actually have the speech output to the stream, since trolls are gonna troll.

  • You can also specify names in the socialstream settings, which prevent messages from those accounts from being read out loud. You can include your own name or/and a bot name, for example.

April 28

  • Text-to-speech added to social stream, ie: index.html?session=XXXXXX&speech=en-US; it has a couple limitations, mainly being the audio can only play out via the default system speakers, so you'll need a virtual audio cable if you wish to integrate it into OBS. Still, its functional if you need it.

April 27

  • trovo support added to socialstream.ninja (pop out trovo chat window to use)
