  1. There is already WebRTC support, but it is not yet public. (see https://99.181.116.152:4443/health and https://99.181.116.152:4443/offer ) But I would really like it to be public so I can integrate streaming directly into my web application. The API for the current implementation, named "webgest", a module of "intelligest", is not publicly documented, only mentioned once here: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2022/04/26/ingesting-live-video-streams-at-global-scale/ ; and the other two URLs I linked earlier do not work with my stream key (probably only works with a different set of stream keys used for development?) But in any case, I am now forced to use alternative third-party streaming platforms which…

  2. 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!

  3. This Kraken endpoint provides the emotes a user has access to: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-emotes

    A similar functionality would be nice for the new API as well. It should contain all emotes a user has access to, for example Global Emotes, Subemotes, Bit Emotes, Emotes unlocked by Channel Points and so on (the Kraken endpoint is unfortunately missing some types of emotes).

    The emotes returned would be for the authenticated user, with an appropriate scope required.

  4. With the new Raids API, it should mirror IRC where channel editors can trigger raid/unraid. Currently, this is not supported (need broadcaster user access token). Until this functionality is added, I will not be migrating to Helix Raids

  5. On the Dev console
    On Extension Pages before submit review or in the review submit dialog

    Please add a generalised queue metric of how long the queue is

    So developers have a better expectation

    This metric should also be floated to the dev console extensions home page

  6. The endpoints announced earlier today ( https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/announcing-apis-and-eventsub-for-polls-and-predictions/31539 ) should be usable by channel moderators so that third-party apps like Chatty can make use of them without the broadcaster needing to authenticate.

  7. Twitch supports two categories of notifications for users on their site: My Channel and My Twitch. My Channel provides updates related to broadcasts, such as subscriptions or donations. My Twitch provides updates mainly about game drops and other loot related activities.

    I propose extending the My Twitch notifications so developers can send custom notifications to users directly on the Twitch platform. These notifications would act similar to drop notifications and would appear in the My Twitch feed. Users would have to agree to receiving notifications via oAuth when signing in or connecting their Twitch account to another application, similar to…

  8. The API does not include any attribution info at the moment, it would be nice if we could get the artist's username and id with the emote data :)

  9. With more Information on the "Shared Bans" feature now being available, it would be nice to have information about them available to third Parties, specifically in 2 Locations:

    1. When a user from a shared List joins and is marked as restricted or flagged, this should be returned on IRC - it probably already is, but the relevant tags should be documented and usable for third parties providing chat integrations / moderator tooling
    2. An API endpoint to GET which streamers a mutual sharing has been made with or a way to query a user's "flagging" status in a channel to allow…

  10. Given the fact that Twitch had to take down the follow/unfollow api's due to bot programs that are out there - my suggestion would be to have an approved set of developers that propose and showcase their applications.

    This way Twitch could bring back the follow/unfollow API and any service or developer that was in violation of Twitch's TOS regarding the API could be warned and ultimately have their access and credentials removed.

    Twitch Developers could review the logs of which applications were connected with BOT services and immediately shut those down rather then removing the api in its entirety…

  11. Since Windoze CMD handles single quote vs double quote characters differently, you will get an error if you don't swap the single for double in

    twitch token -u -s 'user:read:email user:edit'

    {"status":400,"message":"invalid scope requested: ''chat:read'"}

  12. 4 chat commands that would be great to have as API endpoints:

    /monitor USERNAME - Start monitoring a user's messages.
    /unmonitor USERNAME - Stop monitoring a user's messages.
    /restrict USERNAME - Start restricting a user's messages
    /unrestrict USERNAME - Stop restricting a user's messages

  13. This already exists with the videos endpoint. Clips already have a created_at value so sorting by it should be easy to implement. You could actually reduce API calls if you allowed sorting by date.

  15. Currently Channel Ban will report the moderation events of a time or ban, but it doesn't report/include information about deleted messages.

    This would fit on this topic but could also have it's own topic.

  16. For both the API and EventSub please provide some sort of unique Identifier for each donation.

    If a user foo were to donate 10 monies to channel bar

    There is no way to distingish the two apart to correctly deduplicate.

    Use case: read from the API to catch up, then connect to eventsub, then be sent a donation of 10 monies to channel bar by foo

    foo did this a moment ago so it was in the API and we connect to eventsub at the same time and get the same message. We don't know if it is a duplicate…

  17. Twitch has one of the most intelligent and tech savvy user bases of any product I can think of. If Twitch were to make their documentation source code Open Source, members of the community that are tech savvy enough will do your job for you.

    I just went through the documentation when trying to figure out how to make my first banner and my first Video Player Banner. I am unaware of what a "Video Player Banner" as someone that does not normally watch much Twitch but is attempting to start to learn more about it.

    As someone that works…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. The API has no way to initiate an export, and there's no bulk export in the video producer ui, so you're stuck doing vods one at a time which is error-prone and annoying. Please add an export API!

    Thanks,
    Chris
