  1. Currently twitch embed does not support vod chat and neither does the helix api.

    Twitch only allows vod chat to be seen directly on the website.

    This data could be used in a great number of ways by third-parties particularly video editors.

    Please add a way to retrieve chat for vods

    No? ok. Sadge

  2. The Helix /moderation/moderators endpoint currently requires an OAuth token from the broadcaster. Given you can just do /mods in any chat (not requiring authorization from the broadcaster), what is the point of requiring the authorization here?

  4. The v5 endpoint contains the follower's account creation date, the new endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows) does not.

    Knowing when a follower created their account is very useful to moderators monitoring recent follows to keep an eye on potentially problematic users (new account could mean a previously banned user returning) or to detect mass follows from bots (which often have a similar account creation date). Monitoring recent follows is especially useful in follow-only chat mode.

    While it is possible to get the account creation date from the "Get Users" endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users) and then merge it with the follower data,…

  5. For the purposes of GDPR it would be useful to have the following webhooks:

    • When a Streamer installs an extension
    • When a streamer activates an extension
    • When a streamer deactivates an extension
    • When a streamer uninstalls an extension.

    The most important one is the uninstall, it allows us the third party to be notified of an uninstalled.

    The Shopify platform has this with the rule that a third party should, automatically delete all Store (and that stores customer data) 30 days after that hook triggers.

    We need/should do the same, delete any broadcaster, or broadcaster viewer (and subscribers) data 30…

  8. In Twitch v5, the Get User Subscription endpoint contained a created_at and a streak for the current user subscription for a broadcaster.

    Helix, lacks this functionality, and thus it is impossible to determine how long someone has been subscribed for, and also impossible to determine if they've renewed their subscription.

    These fields are imperative to some applications, especially ones that want to externally reward members monthly for each month they've subscribed. Please return these fields to the endpoint!

  9. Hello :)

    We can now add custom tags to our stream infos but the API does allow us to do the same for now.
    Also, if we edit the tags from the new form, we don't get them back with the API.

    Is this API update planed ?

  12. It shouldn't be required for manage roles such as mod/vip via the chat

    It shouldn't be required to manage editor/mod/vip via the roles manager

    it would be useful for automation/third party management to be able to manage roles via the API

  13. Right now there is no official way (there is an undocumented endpoint) to determine whether a stream is sub only or not. Subscriber only status prohibits a lot of people from interacting with the stream, so it'd make sense for applications to be aware of such a state.

  15. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…

  16. Currently, it is easy to tell if a user that sent a message in a streamer’s channel is a subscriber, VIP, or moderator of that channel. However, there is no way to tell if that user is a follower of the channel.

    With the rise of hate raids and malicious messages, I want to ensure that if a streamer is using a chat box overlay, that they have the option to only let messages from followers appear. Malicious users usually don’t follow the channel, and so this will prevent their messages from appearing on stream.

    I do understand that this…

  17. Hey. I know that people are requesting API for Channel Points. But I came up with better and easier idea.

    When streamer creates new reward in dashboard, there should be option to "run a link" in background after reward is redeemed. This type of button will trigger bot with GET-request and bot will run specific action.

    Why I think this approach is better than API:
    1. No API on Twitch side, obviosly.
    2. Bots won't be abble to control Channel Points directly.
    3. This will work with any bot who will support this kind of triggers.
    4. Easier to use…

  18. A streamer can configure if he/she allows to send a raid to his/her channel or not. But this information can't get using twitch api endpoint. The only way is trying to send a raid, and check if any error is returned or not.

    Add this information directly in twitch API can helpful to select a streamer to send a raid.

  19. Currently the rate limit headers "ratelimit-reset", "ratelimit-remaining" and "ratelimit-limit" are not accessible on browser / cors requests due to browser restrictions.
    I request that Twitch adds the "Access-Control-Expose-Headers" header on the helix endpoints so that tools running in a browser can follow the rate limits without guessing if they are still within the limits or having to watch for 429 HTTP codes.

  20. It's possible for a third-party app to query a user's followed channels, but not followed categories. This is a very useful tool for creating alternate views to a follow list

    Use-case: Raid recommendation tool - it compares channel stats to your own and recommends those that are most similar, and also those you haven't recently raided. To do this, it needs to start with a list of everyone you follow who's live, and then does further research.
