    • Anyone interested in video chat between streamers and viewers?

      I am Jack, a twitch lover/viewer and software developer. Recently, I came up with an idea of making the interaction between streamer and viewers more interesting. So I spend a few nights and a weekend to develop a demo that can provide video chat between viewers and streamer during the streaming. If you are still interested in it, please continue reading this lol. The demo works just as simple as below:

      Streamer just needs to:
      - Add a new browser source to your streaming scene within OBS or any other streaming software
      - Tell your viewers the entrance to join…

      • Bug: "View Full Video" links in embedded Clip players incorrectly format query parameters, resulting in non-functional timestamp links

        In embedded Clip players, the "View Full Video" link that appears after the Clip has finished playing incorrectly appends the query parameters to the URL it links to, resulting in a timestamp link that does not function.

        Example:
        https://clips.twitch.tv/embed?clip=dotastarladder_en2/ClumsyButterflyHumbleLife&autoplay=true
        This clip links to
        https://www.twitch.tv/videos/117783153?t=2h4m12s?tt_content=recommend_vod_link&tt_medium=clips_embed
        which is incorrectly formatted, as it has two '?' characters in the query parameter section of the URL.

        This results in the link taking users to the start of the VOD rather than the given timestamp. The second '?' character should be '&'.

        • Provide a secure (HTTPS) endpoint for video / chat embeds

          Industry best practices recommend serving content over HTTPS and technologies like SPDY and HTTP2 currently require SSL / TLS. Sites are served over SSL which make use of Twitch content will be have mixed content errors and the Twitch embeds will not function since there is no HTTPS embed URL.

            • move stream key from 'channel_read' scope to a new one

              I was originally going to argue that the stream key deserves its very own scope & endpoint, being as vulnerable as it is, but the likeliness of you changing an existing endpoint is very unlikely until a new version of it comes out.

              Thus, I instead suggest you duplicate the channel_read scope and tweak the /channel & /channels/:channel/editors endpoints to accept both the original channel_read scope and the new one. The new one however, would exclude the stream key from the end result.

              "View your channel's email address and stream key" is what the channel_read scope says when authenticating with…
