Current Twitch Desktop App version. This version has more than addons management : voice&video communication, chat, game overlay, twitch integration, ...
Options, Browser of games and all UI
Locate manually World of Warcraft addons directory and sync.
Videos run well.
What does not
To runs smoothly and can see correct UI is necessary a workaround.
Is necessary install dotnet46 via winetricks after the installation of Twitch (with Twitch and wineserver closed, of course).
I use diferent prefix to install Twitch and dotnet to avoid possibly problems of conflicts (see Extra comments).
What was not tested
Install Twitch Games and Chat.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Twitch version tested is 8.x (I submit this test for 7.x version because don't exist the directory for 8.x version)
I make a new wine prefix for Twitch and .NET Framwork called (i.e.) .winetwitch: WINEPREFIX=/home/krovikan/.winetwitch winecfg and select Windows 8.1.
In all process I use this parameter before all jobs (install Twitch, run winetricks, run winecfg, run wine):
I launch Twitch with one shortcut in the desktop with this command:
env WINEPREFIX=/home/krovikan/.winetwitch wine64 "

This application currently needs dotnet40 to be installable. Install with winetricks :
winetricks -q dotnet40
If you need the "My Games" tab, dotnet40 is not enough, but dotnet46 works :
winetricks -q dotnet46
Note that both versions are mutually exclusive, so you should probably install dotnet46.
