iOS player fix
11 months ago
The beta player now works on iOS and Android
I hope so anyways! I'll run a test of it tonight on the Milk Box Show stream.
Thanks @sparrow for reporting the issue.
Note: The embeddable player some hosts have put into their website does not yet work with the beta. I expect that to be resolved in the next few days.
So if you're relying on the embeddable, do not opt-in to the beta yet.
Tip Jar tweak
After your stream ends, the tip jar button will now wiggle for a few minutes as a gentle reminder for people to tip their host.
Broadcast App tweaks
The text on the prompt doesn't make sense, but is not customizable unfortunately (browser security concern).
Recommendation list pruning
We now have a lot of users on the homepage / new follow recommendations list and I will be shortening it a bit to only show active hosts / or hosts bringing in new audiences to prankcast.
This is just to make sure new users easily find fresh content or the hosts they joined the site to find in the first place.
Rest assured that I'm happy to add anyone back to the recommendations list and help promote them again when they are ready to go live.
Chat whisper replies
You can now click the Private icon in a whisper to you and it will prepare the message to reply privately.
Fixed: Follow tracking was not working in Firefox for certain users.
Big chat database call /speed improvements under the hood (I hope!)
Added better loading state guidance and ux indicators for users. Should help with slow mobile connections
Accessibility tweaks (higher contrast colors)
Meta upgrades: SEO tweaks to custom page titles & Google Analytics events
