  1. The Get Videos API presents the duration as a string, example: "3h8m33s"

    Please add an additional key of "duration_seconds" of the time of the video in seconds.

  2. Many times, "viewer_count" response field doesn't change during several minutes (due to caching?). However, when you're watching a stream you can see how this data is refreshed each 20-25 seconds.

    Benefit: Increase the precision of apps that use this field

  3. It would be great if we could have a list of the status codes and their reasons so we can write code to prepare for handling those errors, instead of logging them and dealing with them as they happen - for all endpoints. These exist, for the most part, in a lot of the newer endpoint documentation, but a lot of the older endpoints were rushed in their documentation and we have little information on what responses to expect. Sometimes we get 200s, 202s, 400s, 410s - and having to just "wait" or try to plan for them is a…

  7. Currently bits transactions only let you be notified of the SKU that was used.

    I would like to see a more "PayPal" model or the bits usage flow.

    Developers would make a POST request to Twitch with the SKU and any meta/extra data for the purchase, which would return a CheckoutID.

    Developers would then pass the CheckoutID to use bits

    window.Twitch.ext.bits.useBits(sku, CheckoutID);
    

    Then on completion (or cancel) and thus the webhook/Transactions API, can return a reference to that CheckoutID and allow developers to obtain that meta data, either via API call, or returned in the onTransactionComplete JWT.

    The CheckoutID created…

  8. 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

  9. 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
    }]
    }

  10. It appears that the Glitch file has been changed! I couldn't get the !dice command to work, until i figured that the command had been changed to !d20 along with the number of sides changed to 20. Or maybe this was a ploy.... to help me understand coding better... Thanks!

  11. Old API allowed you to only get clips with a specified language. Since this is not in the new API, sorting clips through language, ends up eating through your requests. Since you have a limit of 100, about 1/3 of clips gathered will NOT be English, meaning you have roughly 66 clips. Would be nice if that could be added to allow requests to return more clips.

  12. Consider a parameter option to display hosted channels if the embedded channel is not live. The parameter option is being suggested so that a broadcaster/developer can choose if they do or do not want hosted channels to display when the experience is embedded.

  14. It is useful to know if a streamer is on the home page.

    Both from a

    • internal (to the channel) statistical standpoint
    • as a moderation standpoint (we are on the home page we should up the follow limit to avoid trolls or lower the follow limit to let people chat).

    Please provide a way to

    • determine if a given channel is on the homepage (by region)
    • which slot it is in on that region

    And if possible

    provide this information has a webhook so we don't have to constantly poll for this information

    Additionally we may use it as a…

  15. The Helix /moderation/moderators endpoint currently requires an OAuth token from the broadcaster. Given you can just do /mods in any chat (not requiring authorization from the broadcaster), what is the point of requiring the authorization here?

  18. The "build your first extension" walkthrough was perfect until about the half-way mark, then it started omitting hugely important steps. I had to stumble around to try and keep up, and although I was modestly successful, I was not able to see my Panel extension in my channel. Would have been helpful to actually have a zip file of assets to upload, because I have no idea whether I did that step correctly.

  19. When PubSub returns rewards, it references channel_id whilst the Beta API Endpoints call it broadcaster_id.

    As a Developer, i prefer to be able to parse the same object from different sources in the same way. The discrepancy in naming prevents this / makes it slightly less performant as a distinction needs to be made.

  20. We should be able to CRUD the Role Manager that is in the Streamers Dashboard. This would resolve multiple UserVoice requests including CRUD for VIP, Mod & the Editor migration from v5.
