I've just bumped the version to v0.4.0 which no longer includes the GStreamer player backends by default. However you can easily install any of the player backend packages (called gnome-twitch-player-backend-*) straight from the AUR. This removes the unecessary GStreamer dependencies for those who use the MPV backend ;).

If you need help deciding I've created a short wiki page here which describes the differences between the different player backends.

Could you please post a bug over at GitHub so I can more easily follow it up. If you don't have/want an account, can you please email me the output of: gnome-twitch -l 5.

Personally I am unable to replicate this error, so any info you can give me will help.

Anyone else not able to chat?
I keep getting the "Not logged into Twitch!" message no matter how many times I press the "Click to login" button.

Here is the solution:
Uninstall gstreamer-vaapi package and video is back both intel and nvidia!

➜ ~ pkg-config --cflags clutter-gst-3.0
Package 'clutter-1.0' requires 'cogl-1.0 >= 1.21.2' but version of cogl-1.0 is 1.20.1

Gosh how could I have been so stupid, I forgot about the cogl-git package I had installed. Sorry for the hassle.

@DoctorJellyface Can you run `pkg-config --cflags clutter-gst-3.0` and see if you get any errors?

jurf commented on 2016-04-04 18:09

@Ippytraxx: no luck.

vinszent commented on 2016-04-03 19:32


Hmm according to that error only occurs when pkg-config returns some error.

The problem is somewhere there with pkg-config. Maybe clutter-gst-3.0 didn't install its pkg-config files properly? Can you try reinstalling clutter-gst?

jurf commented on 2016-04-03 19:24

@Ippytraxx: yep, part of base-devel.

vinszent commented on 2016-04-03 16:06

@DoctorJellyface Could you please check if pkg-config is installed? I always thought it was part of the base system but maybe not.
