  1. An improved "hlsLatencyBroadcaster" value unlocks and improves interactive experiences that rely on precise synchronization. For example, the Tobii eye tracker Extension and many Genvid Extensions that rely on this latency for accurate click or display location.

    This functionality may be considered in the future, and we appreciate the feedback and comments provided on this suggestion. There are some technical challenges to solve to provide a better experience for synchronous use cases, though we do not have a timeframe for when this effort would be prioritized at this time.

  2. Allowing developers to roll back a released version to another (approved) version would allow developers to quickly address breaking issues without going through a review process.

  4. If an extension is updated, there generally isn't a good way to tell streamers about it.

    It would be useful if an extension can push a notification to the bell/notification list, like how drops work/notify.

    And/or find a way to present an update notification to the main Twitch dashboard.

  5. The new mod view is great and all.

    But it would be useful if extensions can add items to the Automod queue for moderators to moderate user submitted content (as per the new #7 guidelines for extension content moderation).

    And said item have webhook/EBS powered accept/reject buttons or similar

  6. When a caster leaves a review.

    Currently we can only get these reviews manually via the console.

    Please provide, one or more of:


    • An API, to collect the spreadsheets like existing ext analytics

    • An API, to collect the reviews,

    • A webhook to collect reviews into our own system(s) in real time

  7. I was thinking, not all extensions need to be tried to a specific channel experience, and don't always interact with the broadcaster at all. Extensions like the chat translator, or maybe a TTS chat for viewers who can't read well, or visually impared, it would be great to have for users on every channel, not just channels where the broadcaster decides they want to use it. My idea is to have extensions that the view can enable on every channels, and possibly have the panel for viewer extensions be where the chat is, and possibly take up the bottom half…

  8. To give more freedom in using Bits, having a Bits escrow system would be great.
    RFC0011 ( https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/rfc-0011-extension-entitlement-service/19142 ) introduced that idea but was never implemented.

    What would be the possible flows:
    - A viewer sends Bits, that are put "on hold"
    - The streamer cancels the action asked by the viewers (because the stream is ending for example)
    - After some delay, the Bits are refunded to the viewer because the transaction was not validated.

    -- Viewers send Bits, that are put "on hold"
    - The streamer cancels the action asked by the viewers (because the stream is ending…

  9. Add subscriptionStatus to extension JWT. Currently subscriptionStatus is in Twitch.ext.viewer. With it in the JWT, it can be verified by an extension backend.

  10. Add a radio option to extension capabilities, so that if a member of chat is banned, like how chat gets a overlay saying you are banned.

    An extension could have a twitch provided blocking overlay for a specific extension if the developer enables this as a option.

    So if a member of chat is banned, the extension unloads
    And if a chat banned member loads the page the extension doesn't even load and presents the is banned UI (omit the unban request button just overlay the extension)

  11. Currently bits transactions only let you be notified of the SKU that was used.

    I would like to see a more "PayPal" model or the bits usage flow.

    Developers would make a POST request to Twitch with the SKU and any meta/extra data for the purchase, which would return a CheckoutID.

    Developers would then pass the CheckoutID to use bits

    window.Twitch.ext.bits.useBits(sku, CheckoutID);
    

    Then on completion (or cancel) and thus the webhook/Transactions API, can return a reference to that CheckoutID and allow developers to obtain that meta data, either via API call, or returned in the onTransactionComplete JWT.

    The CheckoutID created…

  12. Some third-party developers request id access on their Extensions just for the purpose of getting a viewer's username to build a more personalized experience. The only way to do so is by relying on the Helix user endpoint on their EBS. The Helix team already modified any payload that has a user id to also deliver a username and save developers the extra step of using the /users endpoint, so it's natural for Extensions to follow that path.

  13. Currently, if you launch an extension with a streamer whitelist, there is no way to remove this whitelist once the extension is live.

    I would like to suggest being able to remove (And only remove not add) the streamer whitelist once the extension is live. This will enable doing 'beta-releases', which is a very common rollout practice and has a lot of benefits for the developer.

    In this way a developer can release an extension to a set group of streamers who want to participate in the beta test.

    Once the developer has determined that things look good and it…

  15. In the case of a trivia extension, where questions appear periodically and the viewer will answer them live and then wait for the next one, the viewer will likely switch back to chat between questions. It would be nice if there were a way to let the viewer know that the extension has a new unanswered trivia question available.

    This could be as simple as a red dot badge on the extension icon.

    Optionally a viewer could opt-in to notifications first.

    Optionally have the ability to force focus on the extension. Would be useful for time-sensitive things.

  16. For extensions that center around Clips it would be nice to be able to play that clip in the extension rather than having the viewer leave the extension/Twitch streamer to go and view said clip.

  17. The "This extension can view my subscriptions list." toggle, (in Manage Extension Permissions) doesn't do a check to see if the channel that the extension is installed upon, is eligible for Subscriptions at all.

    Wording should/could be changed to prevent broadcasters of type BLANK (as apposed to affiliate/partner), becoming confused.

    As they'll click the toggle, run the oAuth dialog and then the toggle is still off.

    On hitting the toggle, change the popup response from:

    > "You have successfully authorized this extension to view your subscriber list!"

    To

    > "You have successfully authorized this extension to view your subscriber list!…

  18. The given JWT representing the transatction receipt contains a time field that is stringified version of the Golang time object. Parsing in this format is significantly harder than a ISO standard format.

  19. I'm looking to add functionality to an extension where all bits count but bits within the extension have a weighting against those that aren't. I have my own bits transactions through the transactions endpoint but at the moment I have to ask for the scope separately. As my extension is already asking for the channel:read:subscriptions I thought it may be a good option to add this as an extra scope to ask for or possibly ask for within the same auth loop as the subscription read

  20. All of your tutorials, links, and/or instructions are dated and unhelpful.

    Try having someone follow any of this step-by-step, from scratch, and see if they can get something working, because I, nor my partners can make any usable sense of what is presented about extensions and creating/testing them.
