I don't personally care about Twitch and even if I did, I couldn't force you 
or Marvin to fix it, so if nobody steps up, I suggest we remove it.

However I have to point out that:

Youtube-DL is able to record Twitch lives, at least age-unrestricted ones, 
just fine, without any custom headers.

The VLC Youtube-DL plugin does not use custom headers and it is able to 
extract the manifest. It seems that the adaptive plugin cannot handle the 
Twitch manifest timeline though, so the playback fails a few seconds in.
