A GTV for Quake Live, that’s what FragTV is. mos-6581 has created a GUI that connects to someone running a FragTV server, relaying a demo while it’s being recorded, essentially creating a GTV-like experience.

It looks like mos-6581 has managed to do so and added some handy features on top. The FragTV client requires a WolfcamQL installation and will also connect to TwitchTV and show the stream (for audio mostly since you’re watching it in better quality in WolfcamQL) and chatbox from Twitch. Read More

A few years ago Own3d.tv tried to compete in a market dominated by livestream.com, ustream.com and justin.tv, of which none had a game-oriented site until justin.tv came up with twitch.tv.

User freddejones has made an ESR thread where he introduces his new Android app named Quake Live Timer. This little app enables you to practice item timing and calculating the time between item spawns. It does not show a countdown timer on the smartphone that will show when the next item will be up. What it does do is give you exercises based on item, all you need to do is quickly figure out when the next item will respawn.
