  2. Being able to order some of the Helix endpoints by date would be useful

    Follower for example would need in some cases 11k+ calls to the follower endpoint to just get the 100 followers who had followed for the longest time.

    This would also be good in the subscription endpoint if cumulative and streak get put into the Helix API

  3. Authorized people whom are not the Broadcaster should be able to obtain Emote Slot information and upload emotes to those slots.

    Please provide an API to

    • get available slots
    • get what is in those slots
    • upload Art to those slots and specify names

  4. When streamers run ads, they'd like to know how long the PreRolls are disabled for.

    Please extend https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial to return preroll data

    For example

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retry_after" : 480
    }]
    }

    becomes

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retryafter" : 480,
    "preroll
    ends": unixTimestamp
    }]
    }

  5. We currently have API's to

    • Upload Video
    • Collect videos into categorys
    • Update Stream title

    We do not have any API's to manage

    • Contents of a ReRun Playlist
    • Start a ReRun
    • Stop a ReRun

    I'd like those API's please.

  9. When a user connects to IRC, the USERSTATE command gives a emote-sets list, this does not contain unlocked bit emotes and I'm guessing it also doesn't include follower emotes and animated emotes. This should be fixed.

  10. The API https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-automod-status

    Only lets you check automod for the channel.

    But it'll only do it to the value that the channel is set to

    Please allow the developer to test a given phrase at a different automod level to that that the channel is set to.

    Say the channel is set to level 1, I may want to test a paticular phrase or message about to be sent to an overlay or other property at level 3 or 4 instead for additional security/moderation beyond the level that chat is set to

  11. Extend the Videos API via a "metadata" endpoint, that provides additional data about the video.

    Including but not limited to

    • Category changes during the video
    • Offsets are relative to the source video that the video is from. So for a highlight it would report the video it was cut from and include where in the origin file the highlight is cut from.

    For Example: https://api.twitch.tv/helix/videos/metadata?id=1234
    Metadata would support up to 100 (or 50) id's at once like Get Videos

    Returns examples

    A video of type archive
    {
    "data": [
    {
    "id": "1234",
    "duration": 18000,
    "chapters": [
    {
    "offset": 0,
    "game…

  12. I have embedded my Twitch channel on my website as a non-interactive iframe in my side panel.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    However, there is so much text there which clutters the UI.

    By having my stream title there from when I was online does not add any value. It certainly does not promote my channel.

    I would much more prefer if I could just have the bare minimum there and I can show my own offline-image.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    It would be nice if we had a new query parameter option for embedding channels, which could remove any promotion texts or videos /…

  13. Similar to

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/38375011-mature-flag-on-get-streams-endpoint

    But for the Get Channel information endpoint

    We should also be able to modify the flag via the Set Channel Information endpoint

  14. Please provide an API and/or webhook/event sub

    That provides information about if a VOD/clip/other content is muted

    We will need the start/end time slots for each muting on the content

  15. With the helix oAuth requirements

    It is often a problem for the less experienced developer to get started, as they don't understand certain rules and limitations around the API.

    The less experienced developer may then choose to generate and leak their client secret, or app access tokens on their "front end only" websites in error.

    So I propose that if the token is identified as App Access/Client Credentials, Twitch adds "CORS Headers" to block the request

    Consider also CORS headers to the token fetching endpoints for App Access generation as well?

  16. The new API endpoint 'Get User Follows'
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-follows

    Could include more data than what is currently provided.
    The legacy endpoint alternative offers a lot more but not all of this info is required by default.
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows

    My suggestion would be to at least provide the 'notifications' as well as the 'logo' info. To keep the requests at an optimal size by default, extra request parameters can be given such as:

    ?showLogo=true&showNotifications=true
    (which can default to false when not present)

    or

    ?verbose=true
    (which will provide an equivalent response to the legacy variant)

    The new endpoint should also only show this extra…

  17. Please extend the error message of the start commercial API to be more useful

    Current response is

    { error: 'Bad Request',
    status: 400,
    message: 'channel for id "SOMEID" has recently ran a commercial' }

    It should return the retry_after remaining value

  18. Please provide a webhook so that authorised tools can collect Commercial status when an ad is run not via the Start Commercial API endpoint (ie Via chat or another authorised user)

    So tool A will know not to try and run ads because user Fred just did

    And Tool A doesn't want to run ads after the "retry_after" period as Fred ran the ads 20 minutes early. so we'd want to reset the start point to when Fred ran ads. For say when Tool A runs ads one per hour

    For example

  19. Pagination on some Helix endpoints, such as Get Streams, is just bad, and can lead to endless looping. So here are some suggestions.

    The goal of any solution would be for any dev paging through any Helix endpoint to have a clear and reliable indication of "there are no more results, you can stop pagination". And if for whatever reason that can't be indicated, the endpoint should safely return an empty data array rather than looping the user back to the start.

    Currently, the final page of the Streams endpoint still contains a cursor (for use in before) so simply…

  20. Now it is not possible to get the number of streams in a certain section without sending a large number of requests to the API.
