In 2018, Horsman (2018a; 2018b) provided guidance for the reconstruction of cached stream remnants following use of the Periscope, Facebook Live and YouTube platforms. These works confirmed that video stream content can be cached to a local device when viewed via an Internet browser, and that following the provided methodology, video content can be rebuilt for subsequent viewing. This work provides an analysis of a further six platforms; Twitch, Youtube Live, Mixer, Ustream.tv, Smashcast.tv, and Younow. An analysis of localised stream caching is provided along with reconstruction methodologies to support those investigating offences where streaming may provide pertinent evidence of a criminal act or in fact be illegal per se.
