  1. Document URL or port for streaming VOD audio track too!
    For context, I'm livestreaming using FFMPEG because OBS is quite heavy if I want to stream in my Chromebook (btw I'm using NixOS instead of ChromeOS)

  2. Since the docs are so long, and each header has an ID you can link to, you should put a link icon that copies the link to clipboard for each header for easy sharing.

  3. You have error messages that tell me I can't do [insert a variety of things here] until I have completed something like "Extensions Monetization Onboarding." The error message fails heuristics because it doesn't let me fix the problem. It says I need to do something but doesn't give me a link or way to do it. That seems like a huge mistake, but with the forums FULL of people complaining that they can't find it either, I'm wondering if it's a dark pattern and done on purpose.

    If there is a workflow that requires me to move through certain steps,…

  4. This information is incorrect. The panel and component extensions fail when self hosted with https making it useless to try and test on twitch as it does not function at all. Please update this page or remove it so that people do not attempt to make extensions only to have your code completely ruin the process.

  5. This page suggests "OAuth Authorization code flow" but i don't believe this is correct because for a chatbot to be effective you would need the access token to never expire or the process to handle expiry and refresh to be event driven. Having a robot/non-existing user login seems misleading or wrong.

  6. This evening I received a resub over pubsub for 3 months in advance. Rather than the documented "multimonthduration" field, that was set to 0 and a new "benefitendmonth" field was returned. This can be used to calculate the number of months, but I can't find any mention of it in the developer docs.

  7. There is no explanation on how to use the pagination cursor for EventSub subscription GET requests.
    Apparently the cursor can be appended in a request as the "after" parameter, but I feel this should be stated in the optional query parameters, as is the case in the Twitch API reference (e.g. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-extension-analytics).

  8. Provide a link to the referenced branch associated with each step.

    There are no branches for steps 3 and 4. The existing branches don't correlate to the code presented for each step on this page.
    And there's messy commented out code in all of the files on GitHub.

    Also, 4 steps are explained, and then the last sentence in this doc mentions the Step 1 branch

  9. Please host the example code in an official Twitch organization on GitHub such as:
    https://github.com/TwitchDev
    https://github.com/twitchtv

  10. This tutorial looks very unprofessional.

    The example GitHub repository is not available from an official Twitch source, but lives in someone's personal
    account at:
    https://github.com/sonia145

    These GitHub organizations would be better alternatives:
    https://github.com/twitchtv
    https://github.com/twitchdev

  11. I received an error I have never seen before and it got me thinking it would be nice to have some documentation on various error messages like "Insufficient authorization in token". Other errors are clear and straight forwards like "missing X scope" however some are vague and unclear.

  12. The hub.secret property needs far more explaining of how the secret is generated:

    "The X-Hub-Signature header is generated by sha256(secret, notification_bytes)"

    It should say something along the lines of

    "The X-Hub-Signature header is generated by using HMAC sha256 with the provided secret being the one specified in hub.secret: hmac(sha256, hubsecret).hash(notificationbody)"

  13. It would be worth mentioning that in order for developer to see the extension changes, "Live Config Path" has to be filled in with "index.html" as well. Since I was logged in with my streaming account (I assume most of them will be streaming accounts if you are testing on your own profile), I was not able to see the changes.

  14. So it seems that when a user is banned or timed out, extensions unload/are unavailable to those users.

    This is not documented.

    It should be documented somewhere

  15. There are reference to V5 API here to get user and channel ID.
    Combined with the GitHub Sample at https://github.com/twitchdev/pubsub-javascript-sample that is still using it this is very confusing to get to work.
    Suggest to update the sample and this article to reference the helix APIs instead.

  16. Unhelpful page. I want to send an API request to test through Postman, but I do not understand what format to put it in. It is asking for an OAuth token, but that request does not mention anything about that. Very confusing.

  17. the V5 scope 'user_read' is not listed here. In the migration document it suggests that that is equivalent to the helix scope user:read:email. Is that correct?

    Is there a V5 scope that matches the new helix user:read:broadcast

  18. Both

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-banned-events

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-moderator-events

    Only hold only "data" for a finite time period.

    The documentation does not note the time period that data is retained and returned for.

    Hypetrains does not it's 5 days.

  20. It would be very easy to build and design for if there were official typing for all data endpoints. The data between all the different API's for the same data isn't consistent, and with event sub, since it no longer relies on the underlying Helix endpoint, that data can now be different too. This will also mitigate typos on the docs which causes huge headaches when trying to code for API responses and the data not working, or missing fields. The typing can specify which fields are required and which are optional, so when designing your app, you can easily…
