Hello everyone and welcome to a new episode of the KH-Vids Podcast! This week your usual hosts -- @Misty, @Llave, and @libregkd -- are joined by one of the recipients of the Most Wanted Podcast Guest Award, @Princess ♥, for a discussion on some of the recent announcements for Twitch.TV.
The popular streaming service is in the process of being purchased by Google's YouTube division, leaving many users in a panic after some of the unwelcome changes that Google made to YouTube after their purchase in 2006. With a new flood of emails about changes to the VOD storage system and copyright matching for audio in VODs, many Twitch users are now calling this the end-of-days for Twitch. We explain all the changes announced, what they mean for Twitch's future, and what streaming services we would like to try in the future.
Finally, we answer a user-submitted question from @Graxe and go over some site and community news, including our new Fundraising Nights.
Please enjoy the episode, send us a question, leave us a comment, and submit to be a guest on the KH-Vids Podcast!
