To use SD Twitch Stream to its full potential, you should setup the API link between Twitch.tv and your website. Open the configuration of SD Twitch Stream on your website via
Global Settings > SD Twitch Stream. Open the Cron tab and go to the Client ID, Client Secret and OAuth Redirect Url fields. You'll need those in a minute.
Acquiring authentication details
The authentication details can be directly retrieved from Twitch. You'll need a Twitch account to retrieve these.
Setting up the cronjob
SD Twitch Stream works with a cronjob. This assures fresh information every minute without slowing down navigation on your website. The cronjob retries all vital information which then gets cached on your website. Open the SD Twitch Stream component in the administrator side of your website and navigate to the System status page. You'll see two blocks containing instructions on how to setup the cronjob. The CLI cronjob is strongly recommended, but if required a HTTP cronjob is also available.
