  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. would love a follow button that works like Twitter Follow/Tweet button. To avoid the need to oAuth-loop it and users would prefer that rather than granting access to their account for developers to throw a follow at any channel.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Add a streamline embed option for chat. Be able to remove the header, leaderboard, and footer options to be more inline with the mobile website style.

    This comes from an example from the forum, but this would be very helpful on mobile websites, and responsive websites. Having only 1 or 2 lines of chat on screen is counter productive, and a terrible user experience.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. parent only works for webservers. not everyone wants or needs to run a webserver to embed videos on a localhost page using file:/// this change benefits no users at all. it may help with 3rd party sites, but file:/// is NEVER a 3rd party but is now blocked from being used due to the parent requirement. this is affecting moderation bots and other tools people use on their local computer that isn't served from a webserver.

  11. 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…

  12. It's as the title suggests.
    When I embed a chat and include the parent parameter then that streamer initiates a raid, the chat embed redirects to a standard popout link for the target channel and not the embed link with the same parent as was set. I believe that when we set the parameters they should stay during this process.
    eg: twitch.tv/popout/channel/chat when it should be twitch.tv/embed/channel/chat?parent=...

  13. I would love an option that mimics the team page's embed, that it shows the top streamer, or even a random active streamer from the team. So you can just embed one object, and Twitch will do the logic to show whoever is currently live.

  15. 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}

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
