It took me quite a while to get this done but the TWiT Live Desktop 2.0 update is finally available! Here's a little summary of whats new in this version:

  • Live video stream now using BitGravity instead of Stickam
  • Double-click video to toggle between full screen and normal size
  • Right-click video to set it as "always on top"
  • Right-click video to get access to "TWiT interactive" features

TWiT interactive includes the IRC channel, TWiT Army, the Twitter and FriendFeed pages and the production schedule. In the settings tab you are able to set your local timezone, save your username for the IRC chat as well as set the application to launch at startup.

I'm particularly pleased with this update and hope you will too as soon as its been made available. Really appreciated all the feedback I got over the last few months so please keep it coming!

For those wondering since this is an AIR application it will run cross-platform on PC, Mac and Linux. You can install the application through the install badge above or downloading the file directly (in which case you will need to have the AIR runtime installed). Enjoy!
