TWiT TV for Windows 1.10

Thanks so much to Graphics Point Engineering LLC for writing an amazing Windows app for watching TWiT Live. You can choose from the Bit Gravity, Ustream, and Stickam feeds, chat in the IRC or Ustream chat rooms, visit other TWiT sites, and even listen to Geoff Smith’s anthemic “I’m A TWiT” song.

  1. I can get the audio to work, but i don't see video right now. Is that just because it only gives you a video feed when it's live?

  2. This is a terrific app, everything works nicely.I have two suggestions tho.1. An 'Always on Top' option, and an option to pick a default streamer of the 3.2. Have the IRC links optionally call on my own IRC client.3. (maybe the community can help with this one) Have it auto-launch at certain times for certain shows.Even without these additions, this is a terrific app. Just adding in my two cents to make it even better.

  3. Yes, you've got it. The default stream thing I noticed it already DID have, so I edited my post.As for the IRC thing, I already have mIRC installed, for example, and I would like it that when I select to enter the IRC chat from this app that it send me to mIRC, or XChat, or whatever.Thanks for answering.

  4. Is it true that there is a new, faster, lighter Leo that's better at multitasking coming out soon? Snow Laporte or something?

  5. I just installed this on Windows 7 RC 7100 and it doesn't play when you choose a stream. The dialog that pops up after you close it says that it needs flash.ocx. I have the latest version of flash, so I don't know what the problem could be. Don't know if this helps or not, but I thought you might want to know.

  6. New features and changes coming in the next version.Always on top – as requestedTWiT Live Schedule/Calendar times automatically shown in the users time zone.Corrected the invalid screen position saved, a couple of users have reported this problem.Changes for the new ustream interface.Corrections for the changing bitgravity player.We reported several immediate issues with the new ustream UI and they fixed them all – yeah ustream! We have also asked ustream to put the login as a link or button back on the chat so the login is obvious like it was on the older UI. Yet to be fixed by ustream in the new UI – the chat uses a huge amount of CPU doing nothing and it has runaway memory allocation.Douglas @ GPE

  7. It worked fine on the first beta of Windows 7, but on the new RC 7100 it doesn't work. Also flash video doesn't work that well on everything I've tried. It could be my system or video card, but it worked fine before. It has my cpu topping out at 100% and slows everything down. With your program the streams just won't start. Not sure what's going on.

  8. The video freezes a lot of me with this app (Vista 64-bit). The web page doesn't have the problem. First, I thought it was freezing because I was (vainly) double-clicking the title bar to maximize the app, but now I'm not sure. I've reverted to using the live.twit.tv web page instead

  9. Fred, the ustream channel has been freezing the last few days and this is an issue with ustream and not the app. You can select the bitgravity channel from the View->Channel menu. The bitgravity channel is the same one used at live.twit.tv.

  11. If you are using Windows 7 or Vista you may be having issues with it not playing and it just displaying a grey screen. This is due to the program requiring a file called “Flash.ocx” which is not included included in Windows. If you use Firefox as your primary web browser, when you installed Flash, it didn’t install the “Flash.ocx” file because it’s not needed to play Flash content within FireFox. BUT, “Flash.ocx” is required to run flash content in Internet Explorer. So, in order to get the TWit TV app to work nativity in Windows, follow these steps.
    * 1 – Uninstall your current flash player – http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe
    * 2 – Open Internet Explorer and visit http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
    * 3 – Click on the “Agree and Install Now” button at the bottom of the page. (NOTE: Uncheck the “Google Toolbar” box if you don’t want to install it.)
    * 4 – On the next page, scroll to the bottom of the page and find: ””Your download will start automatically. If it does not start, click here to download.”” Click on “click here to download”.
    * 5 – When the download dialog box appears, choose “Run”.
    * 6 – Follow the install prompts and let the flash player install. Close when finished.
    * 7 – Open your TWiT TV Desktop App and Enjoy.
