Use this guide when the normal procedure of getting login data fails.
If you open the
Get login data dialog and it says it can't
listen to the port, first check the following:
If you can't fix this problem and there are no other error messages that
may indicate what is going wrong, then you can still proceed with opening the
link by clicking on "Open URL" in the dialog (or this link, which has all permissions Chatty needs). Chatty won't be able to
receive the token automatically (your browser will tell you that it can't
load the page when you get to
http://127.0.0.1:61324), so you have to
read on in the next section, especially
Manually add the login into Chatty.
If you successfully opened the link, authorized Chatty on the Twitch.tv page and got redirected, but the browser can't open the page, first check this:
Get login datadialog is still open and it says
Ready.. It needs to be open for this to work and will close automatically when it received the necessary data.
If you can't get the page to load, you can manually add the login data into Chatty.
The information you need should be in the address bar of your browser (where you got the error that it couldn't connect to the page). It should look something like this:
http://127.0.0.1:61324/token/#access_token=[longish mix of letters and numbers]&scope=chat_login+channel_editor+channel_commercial+user_read
access_token (longish mix of letters and numbers)
is sort of a revokable password that lets Chatty
use some of the Twitch services on behalf of your account. Copy that from
the address bar, go to Chatty (close all dialogs if necessary) and paste
it into the following command (that you type into the input bar):
/changetoken <the access token>
For example if the url looked like this:
Then you enter this in Chatty:
After entering the command, Chatty will finish the process by checking the token and getting the username associated with it. If everything is ok, it should say that you are now ready to connect.
If you want, you can check in
Main - Account
whether the token you entered has the correct access associated with it.
