We bring to you today an extremely poggers leak:

Twitch is an American video live streaming service that focuses on video game live streaming, including broadcasts of esports competitions, operated by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc.

Their community is also a disgusting toxic cesspool, so to foster more disruption and competition in the online video streaming space, we have completely pwned them, and in part one, are releasing the source code from almost 6,000 internal Git repositories, including:

Entirety of twitch.tv, with commit history going back to its early beginnings Mobile, desktop and video game console Twitch clients Various proprietary SDKs and internal AWS services used by Twitch Every other property that Twitch owns including IGDB and CurseForge An unreleased Steam competitor from Amazon Game Studios Twitch SOC internal red teaming tools (lol)

AND: Creator payout reports from 2019 until now. Find out how much your favorite streamer is really making!

Torrent (128GB): magnet:?xt=urn:btih:N5BLZ6XECNEHHARHJOVQAS4W7TWRXCSI&dn=twitch-leaks-part-one&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fopen.stealth.si%3A80%2Fannounce Repository listing: https://dpaste.org/MvoM

Jeff Bezos paid $970 million for this, we’re giving it away FOR FREE.

OP you talked about FOSS Twitch alternative, and I recently found an interesting one : Owncast https://owncast.online/

I created a Lemmy account just to post this lol

I found Owncast while randomly browsing fediverse.party

Hi thanks :)

I initially come from Reddit, but its centralized and sometimes very slow, so I gave a shot to Lemmy. The website is super fast and the interface is pretty !

Welcome! The UI still has some issues here and there, but it is fairly decent already. I was so impressed by the project I even started hosting an instance, which, by the way, is very easy and cheap to do!

Nice thanks for the info :) For the moment I stay in Reddit for the remaining of the GME saga, and then I will surely migrate.

Can’t expect others to respect our licenses if we don’t do the same, so let’s make our own twitch with blackjack and hookers.

Also, this looks pretty massive.

The interest here isn’t in using the proprietary Twitch source code to build competing services. Rather, this code offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the Anglosphere’s most significant social media platforms. A chance perform a concrete analysis of all the anti-patterns, surveillance mechanisms, and information controls which characterize modern platform capitalism. A chance to measure our paranoia against the state of the art of corporate social media.

It would be even cooler if we could dig through the code of Facebook, Google, or Twitter, but Twitch is close enough where we could extrapolate a lot of insights and better understand the state of the industry.

These past few years there has been a lot of discourse about “The Algorithm.” How all these major platforms, like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and YouTube curate what we see based on marketing profiles, demographic information, our comment, likes, dislikes, tracking cookies etc. How they shatter epistemology and push different narratives and ideologies to different groups, while demoting or censoring information which threatens the state and its financial stakeholders. How they shadow-ban users and media. Any chance we have to demystify “The Algorithm” and understand exactly what these companies are doing behind the scenes is incredibly valuable.

It might be interesting to read the code, just to gain increase the knowledge behind such titanic streaming platform. However, if I’m not wrong, it is illegal to take advantage of a leak like this to build anything.

Wine and/or ReactOS developers refused to read winxp leaked code, because making use of leaked code would make their projects illegal.

I’m not 100% sure about these statements, so if I’m wrong somewhere I will edit or delete this post.

it is illegal, it’s a violation of the license

thankfully intellectual property isn’t real so it’s trivial to read and learn from the leak

you cant copy and paste, but you can see how they did it, what for what I seen, is total crap.

I wonder what ramifications it will have. Also on reddit I saw someone shared the source code for golden kappa. The truth is too devastating for me to share. So you’ll have to go find it yourself.
