  1. Submitting this on behalf of Jeff Fritz, which he mentioned while talking about a Channel Points streaming opportunity. I was talking about building an example that uses webhooks to flag when a specific category is selected for a stream so a developer knows when to enable or disable a channel points reward. His question was why Twitch doesn't handle that automatically.

    If there was an optional category property that could be set when creating the custom reward, Twitch could potentially handle enabling/disabling a reward more reliably if the context for switching is a category update, which would probably be the…

  2. Having written one and a half client libraries for IRC now, I wish Twitch Chat was exposed over a more consistent protocol.

    • Allow read-only access to chat messages (and other related live data and events) via PubSub, with clean re-designed JSON Chat message payloads
    • No longer identify channels and users by their login name, use user IDs for all purposes
    • Send messages via an API call

    Most importantly, I would expect a redesigned API to think of edge-cases in a better way than IRC currently does. For example, what happens on IRC if a channel gets suspended, or a channel…

  3. channel information endpoint provides "gameid", "gamename" and "title" for live streams, but it doesn't return the stream uptime as displayed below a live stream; would be useful to acquire this via API.

  4. There should be a way to at least enable/disable or pause/unpause rewards that the Client-ID used didn't create. This makes sense since if I'm a moderator I can pause/unpause events that I didn't create for the channel in question. Even if it's a separate endpoint to prevent different bots from "writing over each other" I think this would be the best possible feature to add.

    Possible bias: This would make my Channel Points Rewards (Twitch CPR) Game Profile system just that much slicker. ;)

    Best part; Could just be a paired-down version of the current "get" function of channel point…

  8. I have a system that checks what scene the creator is in, to see if that custom reward is allowed (we do scene whitelisting). A planned feature is to disable and enable custom rewards based on the scene, so that the end users (the viewers) only ever see custom rewards that will actually work.

    It would be very helpful if I could batch my update calls so that I could set several rewards as disabled/enabled at once. Without this ability its very likely I'd hit a rate limit.

  9. Allow to request clips/videos on multiple required query paramters (broadcasterid & gameid).

    Exemple: https://api.twitch.tv/helix/clips?broadcaster_id=xxxxxxx&game_id=xxxx

  10. As it stands currently today, whether you are building a large scale bot to connect to multiple channels, that is always on (think Streamlabs, StreamElements, etc), or a small bot specific for your channel, or perhaps somewhere in between, the only supported way to connect is via the channel name, which is tied directly to the Twitch username.

    The problem that is faced is when one of those connected channel's broadcaster decide to change their username, thus changing the channel name as well, since now what the bot is listening for data on is non-existent. The way this is managed…

  11. The twitch apps games screen is pretty limited. Many have over 100 games on there by now. So I would like to be able to build my own web app and let users log in via twitch and browse their claimed games collection where I can provide filters and search for games using whatever data is available about the games. To do this there must of course be an API where I can retrieve the game list and meta data about them.

  12. If the request (Get Videos) is authenticated by a user, return a response field video_bookmark which returns, in seconds, where the user left off in watching the video. Or it could be requested at a different endpoint by video ID or something.

  13. Currently requires two un-needed requests https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows and https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-streams
    (Instead they could just include a ‘live’ parameter in the first request.

  14. When creating a custom reward it would be nice if we can set a description. Not all rewards can be easily described by the name.

  17. In the context of a Twitch Extension Overlay, the API needs a way to set key value pairs for viewers of a channel not using cookies. Chroma incognito blocks setting local storage and cookies. This would be used to store overlay settings like widget sizes and positions. That way when the page refreshes, the overlay elements would persist their placements. As the great BarryCarylon said "... like Redis for Twitch Extensions".

  19. The ability to specify an existing reward that exists as a basis on creating a new reward would be useful. (This would clone the image/other set parameters as well to the new reward)

    Use case:

    Channel points to pick a "team" the user would be in.
    Today there are three teams, so clone the pre set (disabled) one three times.
    Tomorrow there will be four, so clone four times.

    Image would be the same for all four.

  20. Old API allowed you to only get clips with a specified language. Since this is not in the new API, sorting clips through language, ends up eating through your requests. Since you have a limit of 100, about 1/3 of clips gathered will NOT be English, meaning you have roughly 66 clips. Would be nice if that could be added to allow requests to return more clips.
