This package was rejected on 26 Mar 2023. The reviewer chocolatey-ops has listed the following reason(s):

scowalt (maintainer) on 19 Feb 2023 04:27:37 +00:00:

User 'scowalt' (maintainer) submitted package.

chocolatey-ops (reviewer) on 19 Feb 2023 05:04:37 +00:00:

streamlink has failed automated validation.


Requirements represent the minimum quality of a package that is acceptable. When a package version has failed requirements, the package version requires fixing and/or response by the maintainer. Provided a Requirement has flagged correctly, it must be fixed before the package version can be approved. The exact same version should be uploaded during moderation review.

  • Something went very wrong. There is no package to validate. Please repush package. If you receive this message again, contact the site admins.

chocolatey-ops (reviewer) on 11 Mar 2023 05:03:19 +00:00:

We've found streamlink v5.3.0.1 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

chocolatey-ops (reviewer) on 26 Mar 2023 05:04:02 +00:00:

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move streamlink v5.3.0.1 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.

scowalt (maintainer) on 26 Mar 2023 16:38:41 +00:00:

This should pass on rerun
Validation Status Change - Validation tests have been set to rerun.


Streamlink is a command-line utility which pipes video streams from various services into a video player, such as VLC.

The main purpose of Streamlink is to avoid resource-heavy and unoptimized websites, while still allowing the user to enjoy various streamed content.

Streamlink was forked from Livestreamer, which is no longer maintained.
