After I discovered a way to watch Twitch without Flash, I’ve been using it to watch streams on Twitch. But manually opening a new window and going to the new HLS URL is tedious, so I made a JavaScript bookmarklet to automate it. Note that it requires Safari on OS X to watch the HLS stream. I’m not aware of any other browsers that support HLS at this time.

Install it by dragging this to your favorites bar: Twitch HLS.

Use it by clicking the bookmark whenever you’re on a Twitch stream page. It does two things: pauses the Flash stream, and opens a popup with the HLS stream.

The code is available on Github. More details are there too.
