I'm very excited to announce that we have completed an update on our Live Video Stream section to include Justin.tv as well as Own3d.tv. It's been a long time coming, and I'm glad to see it up and running. We have also added the stream video embed on arenajunkies, so you'll have your own stream page with comments and ratings.

Please go add your new streams and test it out. It's a new feature, so it will probably have bugs that we didn't catch. Post any bug reports in this thread for now.

As many of you know, we've always struggled to get the correct information from Xfire. Justin.tv and Own3d.tv are both much more robust systems, so we recommend you add one of those to your account in place of the Xfire service.

Also, during the brief outtage we posted updates on the Arena Junkies Facebook Page and Twiter, so don't forget to like/follow to stay up to date! Back to Top
