  1. The idea is simple: Add the same phone & email verification options to the ability to actually follow a channel, and thus also giving account age requirements to be able to follow a channel. This will allow small streamers being targeted by hate raid Bot attacks to simply prevent the bot attacks easily, instead of being driven off the platform.

  2. Previously a call to "https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/123456/videos" included "_total" (The total number of videos).
    This was removed in Helix.
    As a replacement, you need to iterate through every 100 videos for a channel and count manually. This results in thousands of extra API calls.

  4. 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!

  5. I wish you could activate watch parties in VODs the same way you do when it's live

  6. It would be important to get the latest clip of a channel, with the link, title, category and description.

  7. I was thinking that some kind of listener in embedded clips that would run a function once the clip had ended.

    For example, in my case, I wanted to run an array of clips one after in an iframe (HTML). Within twitch's API there is no way to do this and I think it would be very beneficial to twitch developers to have an ".onEnded()" function in some way for embeded clips.

  8. Add a "/users"-like API method that supports display names. This will let bot commands which have a username parameter support Asian-family character display names to be passed the same as Roman-alphabet channel names. It will also let systems verify that a provided name (channel or display) exists on Twitch, and merge any information for a user's display name with the information for that user's channel name, to prevent "duplicate" sets of data: one for the display name; one for the channel name.

  9. At the moment we can either page through all followers of a specified user or check the follow relationship between two specified users. What we can't do is to provide a broadcaster and a list of users to get the follow relationships between the given broadcaster and the specified list of users. There is an endpoint for broadcaster subscriptions (Get Broadcaster Subscriptions). It takes a broadcaster id and a list of user ids. Please provide a similar endpoint for broadcaster follows (Get Broadcaster Follows). It would be very helpful and could reduce the amount of requests against the Get Users…

  10. The API response for

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-extensions
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-released-extensions

    Omits Category and Games entries

    Please add this information.

    Part of my operational work flow will involve asking the API for the dev console held settings and checking that the dev console matches what I think it should be

  11. 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.

  12. There is no way to retrieve a list of all the user's subscriptions.
    The idea is to create a query similar to this.
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/subscriptions/user?&user_id=141981764

  13. The AutoMod API lets you test/validate text

    Extend the AutoMod API to test a username/userID so a user passed in from tip/extension platforms can be tested to see if should be flagged/skipped/held for manual moderation

  14. I would like to have an API to provide Drops information.

    I would expect this to be secured behind the broadcasters token perhaps with a suitable scope.

    Then this would allow me to see the current active scoring campaign(s) on a given channel.

    This would allow me to provide easier bot commands with direct links to the relevant Twitch campaign page in an automated fashion. Which makes it easier for viewers to get to this data in an on demand fashion if they miss the popup for whatever reason. or the user just needs help from channel mods to understand…

  16. The get-videos API (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-videos) takes either a video id, user_id, or game_id, but does not take a stream_id, so if you want to find the VOD from a stream ID you captured while the stream was live, you have to search back through a user's videos and match them up, which is not super efficient, especially if the stream is old. Could you add stream_id as a possible query parameter please?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  17. Please provide an API to obtain the recently played songs on a channel (including the timestamp when played)

    This will allow bots to catch up if they restart and/or provide a recently played function without having to store that internally.

  18. An extension/follow up to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41519041-provide-soundtrack-now-playing-information-for-a-s

    Please extend the response to include when the song started playing on the channel.

    This will allow developers to reduce spamming the endpoint by only loading/requesting when the song is predicted to end. (Start time + duration)

    This could also be solved with EventSub (https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/44672968-add-a-soundtrack-topic-to-eventsub)

  19. Currently, the only API endpoint which can return the current status of the channel is /search/channels, which contains a "is_live" boolean attribute.

    So when I want to know if a channel (knowing its ID) is live through the API, the only way is by calling /channels first to get the channel name, then by calling /search/channels with the channel name, and finally sort the results to find the correct channel.

    This is excessively time and ressources consuming, for both developpers and Twitch servers (two API call instead of just one). Would be great to add a "is_live" field in /channels…

  20. The documentation for the new user monitoring thingy in PubSub has not been added yet.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/pubsub

    So that it can be used to detect these messages and do certain events, just like the automod messages when it catches filtered messages.
