  1. Add looping for embedded clips. Not sure how this isn't possible yet seeing as how clips loop by default on the full clips page.

  2. Problem:
    As livestream video embed is included on the website it will autoplay without the consent of a user to be counted as a viewer within a stream, various broadcasters abuse this logic by creating silent 1px embeds on third-party domains (wikis, product pages & similar). Not only that unnaturally inflates the viewcount numbers of the streamers in question but as well it hurts statistics and the community of the categories in which said broadcasters streams, in addiction this incredibly hurts users with limited network bandwidth while they try to use said websites where embed is included cause they do…

  3. You have on your developer site an example to embed the chat.
    The problem is: When i embed the chat like your example:

    <iframe id="twitch-chat-embed"
    src="https://www.twitch.tv/embed/twitchdev/chat?parent=dev.twitch.tv"
    height="500"
    width="350">
    </iframe>

    First I have to accept the cookies, before I can see the chat, but the message is so big, I can't click on confirm. The button doesnt show up on height 500px - it's below under it.
    Maybe you can change it, that the buttons are on top and the text under it or make the text collapsible?

    Btw: The cookie message is in german language
    Picture of the iframe: https://i.imgur.com/gUaELUa.jpg

  4. A permalink that accepts a channel id and redirects to the user's channel.

    For example, twitter has https://twitter.com/i/user/{user_id}
    and discord has: https://discordapp.com/users/{user_id}

    It would be extremely helpful if twitch had something like:
    https://twitch.tv/user/{channel_id}

  5. I've noticed a sharp decline in viewers coming in from outside of Twitch lately, I understand that this is due to new changes in how embedding the streams on other websites works, namely that the streams no longer auto-play. However, I find that the auto-play is important to onboarding new viewers who don't already use Twitch regularly. People's attention is caught by seeing the stream moving on my page, and without that, it's far more difficult to get their attention. I would request that this change be reverted, since many creators rely on auto-play to attract viewers from outside of…

  6. I have a potential idea to fix the viewer inflation issue with embeds, so hear me out:

    This involves oAuth, pass through the client id of the app + the user id of the user viewing to the embed.

    if no user id and client-id is passed through, then consider them a embed viewer and not count towards actual viewer count.

    This way it'll create two types of viewers: real and embed, and will get rid of the insane high viewer counts, therefore giving you the real count.

  7. Why does the clip quality have to default to Auto for embeds? Nobody needs 1080p on a tiny video blowing up their laptop/phone.

    Please just have it remember last quality setting. (use the cookie that already exists on Twitch?)

  8. Ever since the embed updates back in 2020, the mobile embed experience has been sub-par. The suggested way to embed on iOS was to embed on your website, then load the website in a web view in your app. This was so that we could pass along the parent parameter. However it results in a number of issues that I'd like to suggest solutions for.

    First, the issues:

    1. The UI of the player is unusable. If you load your own website embed, then it is far too small to use. If you simply load the pop out player's URL, then…

  9. I'm wondering why Twitch play placeholder ads on embed player instead of the usual ads on Twitch platform. There are more ads played on embed player and even then it's just a placeholder so I don't understand what is the point of showing the ads.

  10. If you embed a Live twitch broadcast on another website, it includes the chat along with it, which is great! But if you embed a VOD on another site, the chat is absent. Why? I see no reason why you wouldn't at least have an option for it in there! Let embedded VODs have their chats!

  11. While it works on Android, it is still impossible to use iframe embeds on web-based mobile iOS apps. The reason being that iOS' WKWebView expects <schema>://<host> in the CORS headers returned by Twitch. Twitch uses the parent parameter to generate those headers. Unfortunately, iOS prevents the use of http://, https:// and file:// as schemas and forces us to use a custom schema like ionic://localhost (or anything else) for accessing local files.

    The request is to add the ability for twitch embeds to return a CORS header that can match a custom scheme like ionic://localhost.

    I read through all…

  13. Bad enough you interupt content to show me a ******* add I have no ***** to care for, you also have to plug the **** on my screen while I am watching. And the content creators run personal ads.. This is too ******* much. I came to this from TV to avoid ******* ads

  14. The purple popups that occur when watching an embeded stream really only serve to worsen the experience of using an Embed. Attempts to engage with third party content are ruined but these purple screens cutting off the action every 15 minutes and the "Best experience" that twitch claims you can get from using the website directly is an experience devoid of the actual functionality provided by some third party applications that are at time the whole reason for seeing the stream in the first place.

  15. I have a iOS mobile app that embeds Twitch clips retrieved from the api. When a user taps the big play button in the center of the video, the video overlay (thumbnail, title, controls) stays hovering for close to 6 seconds. Tapping the video again to hide to overlay does not work.

    However, when a user taps the small play button on the bottom left corner and then taps on the video, the overlay hides instantly.

    Having a significant portion of the video content covered for the first 6 seconds of the clip is a bit annoying, and most users…

  18. Really, who approved this. We bitched about this and now you refer us to this new place, killing off the discussion thread we had before. Hoping we let it slide. You are actively creating this problem and are unwilling to fix it.

    Test was concluded, results are in. We are not nagging our external users enough. That seems to be the conclusion of last months 'extensive' testing.

  19. The "Embed everything", "Embed Video", and "Embed chat" widgets should be responsive instead of a fixed width and height. Or if we specify the width, at least automate the height so it respects the aspect ratio.

  20. Make more developer tools for working with embedded clips.
    At least, it can be the same tools as for the VODs player (playback api, events etc). Or you can add more features specifically for clips, for example, when you put an array of clips into player it displays as a collection or playlist.
