Extension Guidelines /Policies and other platforms

4.6 Off-site linking:

  4.6.1  Off-site links may not refer users to sites that deliver functionality effectively similar to that available on Twitch.tv.

Does that mean that my extension isn’t allowed to use platforms like YT in any type (video links e.g.) ?

That is my interpreation of the rules yes.

Alright thank you. I was just wondering because there was something a few years ago when it was possible to play videos on the stream in exchange for bits/money.

If that was the case, then it wasn’t via extensions.

Extensions also have a “no jukebox” policy which is what you describe.

And extensions can’t use “real money” (as a viewer just bits.
