A Mod to help stream/video viewers

Cyclone -> MrTarget
Rejuvenation -> MyArenaBuddy
Right now I can appreciate some % of what you good players do based on the skype calls, but the videos I really like watching are the ones where there's a narration of what you're doing and why. If that sort of discourse could be offloaded to an addon instead of having to go back and record a narration track, or trying to do it as you play, it would be a lot more informative and I'd be much more interested.
Just a thought.

I think showing every ability would be quite stupid, CC is enough to please the viewers. Showing every ability would just be incredibly annoying for the person playing, and spammy.

The hardest part is that a spell that has a cast time can't tell you who it's being casted on until after it's done. That's an API limitation by Blizzard. So, currently the addon just guesses that you're casting the spell on your target. Obviously if I have an enemy targetted and I cast flash heal on myself, the addon is going to give you garbage info, and I wasn't willing to spend the time on a first pass to do all the permutations for the combat_log of successfully casted cast-time spells.
Anyway, I set the chat window to have a fadeout of 10 seconds, and this is about as spammy as it gets as far as I've been able to tell so far. I guess that makes sense with a priest's GCD and the fadeout timer of 10 sec.

But in total, yes, that mod is pretty damn awesome looking and way more comprehensive than what I was looking at. Ty for pointing it out - I wish streamers would use it so I could appreciate their videos better.
