  • 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
    • Added a "none" option to the transition options
  • 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 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.
  • For Tiktok, I added 'subscriber', 'moderator', and 'rank' colors to user names. I welcome feedback.
  • Also updated the Social Stream standalone app; (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.
  • Also added an option to have emotes from members-only show up on the emotes wall.

November 9

  • Fixed an issue with duplicate messages and

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.

October 12

  • Improved &floatup; supports &showtime now, to control speed, plus OBS fixes.
  • support added to Social Stream.
  • Font-resizing for long messages is no longer enabled by default on the featured chat page; you'll need to now use &fontfit to enable it. (it's available as a toggle under featured->style)

October 3

September 28

  • added to Social Stream. (no pop out, so just open the watch page and pause the video I guess)
  • highlightwaitlist and removefromwaitlist are API actions added to Social Stream to control the wait list overlay. removefromwaitlist will remove a user from the waitlist (default is the first user) highlightwaitlist will highlight the select user in the waitlist (default is the first user; seen in first screen shot) -- With either command, an optinonal passed value can be specified as well, which reflects which user to target (as an integer value reflecting order), or pass 0 *default) to target the next available user in the list. 1 is the first user in the list, 2 second, or 0 the first unselected user. -- The sampleapi.html page has some test buttons to trigger (as shown in second screen shot) -- You'll need to enable the remote http/wss API in the general extension settings to enable this remote API -- The API can be triggered via HTTP, so you can use it with a streamdeck; ie:

September 26

  • live chat added to Social Stream. ie:
  • MS Teams now is opt-in for Social Stream

  • Facebook sticker support added to Social Stream
  • Added an option to filter for 'members' to the dock's menu

September 8

  • Updated Social Stream, attempting to fix some issues with relayed messages sometimes duplicating, etc. This includes also a change to avoid publishing to the same chat window if open in two different tabs; URL matching based, so not 100% ideal.

September 5

  • A few minor fixes and additions to Social Stream the last couple days, like the option to opt-in to showing "user joined" messages from TikTok.

August 29

  • Since a popular Twitch auto-collect channel-points extension became adware earlier today, I've now added my own twitch automatic points-collection feature to Social Stream.
  • With Twitter being renamed X, I've updated the twitter icon used by Social Stream. I however added an option to re-twitter the branding, using the twitter icon in Social Stream if desired instead.
    -- Just for some added fun, I update the branding on the Twitter website itself, back to to Twitter, when this option is enabled.

August 28

  • I've expanded the number of translation text fragments for Social Stream to over 330, so if you're bored, feel free to contribute your language. -- A page is up on how to contribute translations (simple enough): -- We've already had a few sentences in German contributed by our resident Paddy Lu.

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*)

August 24

  • Added the option to use a !custom command for the waitlist trigger
  • Added the option to use a custom title message for he wait list page
  • Clarified the language/style to make it a bit clearer that you have to enable the page for it to work

August 20

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.

August 18

  • There's a new stream event option added, where events can be set to 'fade up and away', to avoid competing with the actual chat messages. -- This idea is based on what TikTok is doing with events, although I like to think my version of it is nicer.
  • MS Teams "enterprise" chat now working; not just the personal version. -- update Social Stream to access

August 17

  • Added a wait-list feature to Social Stream; it is a standalone overlay page (waitlist.html) -- The idea is users in chat can type !queue, and when they do they will be added to a list of users. -- Ordered based on the time line of the user entering the !queue command; duplicate entries ignored. -- The list can be reset or turned off/on via the extension menu. -- This feature was by request, I suppose to allow users to raise their hand to join in some event. It will evolve based on feedback.

August 16

  • Due to many users having their docks set as narrow overlays, I've modified the default style to collapse into multi-lines when the width is less than 660px in OBS (or 330px in Chrome). You can get something similar with &compact, but some users were having trouble discovering that flag. -- Hopefully this makes it easier to use, without breaking any existing user setups. let me know though if having problems.

August 15

  • &24hr added to Social Stream, which shows the timestamp in military time rather than 12hr time.
  • The option al set up automated broadcast messages at specified time intervals also added to Social Stream; option to set added to the settings menu.
  • estrim support added to Social Stream.
  • Migrated away from sync-save to local-save data for some of the save settings in Social Stream; lets me save more data.

August 14

  • chat added to Social Stream; open the "external sidebar" version of the event chat to use.

August 13

  • Added a 'hype meter' to Social Stream to offer insight into total actively engaged viewers; an alternative to 'viewer counts'. -- keeps track of unique names seen per chat source in the last 5 minutes. -- the more engaged your viewers are with the chat, the higher the score. Might encourage more chatting. -- this is a new dedicated overlay page -- basic styling options included, such as align left/right, disabling outlining, scale, etc

August 12

  • &pinnedonly added to Social Stream; hides all but pinned messages. This is useful for a synced second dock, perhaps on air talent, to see which messages you want them to see.

August 10

  • In Social Stream, added the option to have de-selected messages become unhighlighted again, rather than stay green. (&unhighlight)

August 7

  • Updated the HTML/XSS input sanitizing logic for all the social chat integrations

August 2

  • The dock in Social Stream can now be configured to send its commands (fake chat or open chat pop out windows) via server instead of p2p. -- The dock could be configured already to accept messages via WebSockets, but now you can have it also reply to messages. -- This is mainly in the case you can't get WebRTC working
  • Added support for Stripe payments to Social Stream, so you can have successful payments made using Stripe show up as messages in Social Stream.
    -- Name, Message, and donation amount are support currently -- Use a Stripe payment link (as a donation page if needed), point it to the SocialStream webhook API , and make a few setting changes -- And you're good to go -- Details/Guide:

July 31

  • Option to hide specific events in socialstream added. Takes comma,separated,values, and if any of those match a word in the event message, it will be blocked.

July 25

  • OpenAI's chat page added as a supported site to Social Stream, which opens up some interesting bot actions I guess.
  • Added 6 more custom chat auto-start options to Social Stream; up from 3. This was by request. Hopefully that's enough?
  • Updated Social Stream with new relay options:
    • Added the option to relay all incoming messages from one chat site to all other active chats on other sites -- I try to ignore duplicates, and I've added a 1 second timeout, to avoid too much spamming. -- image-based emojis and images won't be relayed; just text and maybe some normal text-emojis supported.
    • Added the option to relay just donations from sites to all other sites; stated as a thank you.
    • Fixed an issue where the auto-hi option was saying hit to all sites, not just the site that the hi came from.

July 19

  • The emotes-wall with Social Stream has two new adjustable options -- &limit=10, so you can limit the max emotes allowed at a time -- &speed=2, this will double the speed of the emotes; can take decimal values as well Use now manually, or update and enable via new toggle switches in the emotes section.

    -- The GIF image selected will be based on the words in the chat message; top closest match. -- I'll probably change this feature as time goes on, to improve it, but let me know what you think. -- How can it be better?

  • You can now make a file called badwords.txt in Social Stream, with a line by line list of bad words to filter out from chat.
    -- There's already a default blacklist of common bad words to filter out, but making your own badwords.txt will override that default list. -- You still need to enable the badwords toggle in the menu for this to use your list. -- The extension or browser needs to be reloaded if you change the badwords.txt file for it to update.

(Social Stream) -- You will need to select a file location before it starts saving. -- It only saves each name once, without timestamp or additional meta data. -- You can open the file while its still recording, to see the current sate of number of unique chatters, etc. -- Start/stop support works, which will also start a new list once started again.

  • The open-chat functionality opens a window or tab based on the destination, to offer best performance. (added by River)

February 24

  • Social Stream has had the "open chat automatically" functionality improved a lot the last couple days. @River played a large part in that.

January 31

  • Social Stream has a new menu-bar design; our Discord member @💎╲⎝⧹River⧸⎠╱💎 helped with the new icons, updated much of the UI, compressed the images files down, and improved many aspects of the menu's UX. A fantastic job really; thank you. (I should also mention @Sunadmiral on Discord, as she contributed some menu bar / icon concepts and designs as well, which influenced the redesign).
  • 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
  • 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 (the older / alternative Social Stream extension)

January 9

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

January 6

  • Google Meet support added to Social Stream. (you'll need to toggle it on explicitly to use, for privacy reasons)

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.
