  1. It would be most helpful if there was a documented API for accessing live and VOD video streams that 3rd party clients could use.

    It's no secret that there are a variety of 3rd party clients for different platforms that use undocumented APIs that Twitch has made available for a long time. Understandably this is not officially supported, and the future of this status quo is unclear.

  2. https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/new-extension-policy-updates-including-a-moderation-section/24410/3

    As noted for the new policy, we should prevent people banned/timed out from the channel, from submitting content.

    Theres no way to do that without an extensions developer creating an external oAuth loop to request the relevant scopes from a broadcaster.

    Duplicate the subscription scope capability to a the channel moderation scope to facilitate this policy being enforceable and negate the need for two sets of keys for each extension.

  3. Summary:
    While bandwidth across networks are usually a concern, internal bandwidth and memory footprints are also a concern. When using "channel.cheer" this is fine, but topics such as "channel.channel_points_custom_reward_redemption.update" approach an unnecessary level of verbosity and is roughly the largest topic name as of this moment. This can be left (though I'd prefer it to be shortened), but future events should be kept on a low byte footprint. Below 64 is my recommendation.

    Reasoning:
    Non-development basis: There is no real reason to provide a name of a topic that is over 64 characters, if this is the case, the name…

  4. The newly required parent field broke our mobile embeds! A workaround would be awesome, and a React Native SDK would be divine. Thanks!

  6. Make the docs closer to OAuth specs. The docs say to send parameters to /token (and /revoke) in the query string, but this is non-standard. Twitch supports the parameters in either the query string or request body.

    The documentation should prefer the standard approach of sending parameters in the request body.

  7. In order to provide the best experience through extensions, we have users identified in external systems, using Twitch Ids and / or Oauth.
    To do so, we use Firebase authentication.

    Problem is, Firebase natively uses 2 urls that cannot be modified / personalized:
    https://securetoken.googleapis.com/v1/
    https://www.googleapis.com/identitytoolkit/v3/

    Those URLs are used to verify / produce / refresh tokens in an API way.

    Is it possible to add those URLs to the default CSP or have them fulfill the CSP rule, to be able to keep up with our extensions ?

    Thanks !

  8. This page does not state all scopes that can be used, such as openid and viewing_activity_read or even the fact that scopes are optional and can be left empty.

  9. Hi, I'm trying to embed my live on a page I created with a github repository and it doesn't work. It worked a week ago and now it doesn't work anymore... I'm sad, I can't find what you changed.

  10. I do not understand the example for parent parameter. Should i only put in if website is embeded on another website but do I also put in my own website? I do not understand what to do.

  13. When I try to download the "Twitch+Developer+Rig+Setup.exe" from the following link https://link.twitch.tv/DevRig-Win I get sent to the next page: "This URL has been flagged by Bitly's systems as potentially harmful." Unfortunately, I cannot report this link to Bitly because I get sent to a "We're sorry. You can't access this item because it is in violation of our Terms of Service." page when I try.

    I got this link from creating an extension and hitting the "Download Developer Rig" button. I am not sure if this actually malware or backdoored.

  14. Some services like Streamelements rewards viewers on streamer's channel with points for watching stream. If you would change your Twitch username, channel points will be reset to 0 because service unable to identify who you are (something like you are new) but still remembering old nickname.

  16. I'm aware that this is a duplicate but I feel that the answers given have been unsatisaftory, GQL is a well-known and understood standard, hence the tmi.js API would not be needed anymore, nor would other twitch-specific packages. There is no reason not to give access to this given that we all know that it's in use internally and that the security requirements would be no different.

    I think that enabling this and managing it safely would be far more secure than it remaining undocumented as developers will use the GQL endpoints no matter how much their use is discouraged…

  17. Currently, GQL is, as far as we know, for first-party and authorized developers only, but its unclear how anyone can gain access to use GQL under proper Twitch authority. There are tons of functions and features in GQL given it helps power Twitch that could aid many developers in building incredible tools to fill gaps in communities. A few immediate items that come up that could be solved very quickly (while we wait for public endpoints):
    -Adjust the Role Manager (Add/Remove Mods, VIPs, Editors)
    -Remove & Rename Clips
    -Action Channel Redemptions including Accept and Reject, get Redemption Data including Pending…

  19. To facilitate the communication of people who like streamers from other countries, it would be totally innovative if it had an automatic translation of what was sent in the chat by the user in the language of the streamer, and also automatic subtitles capturing the live audio from the stream, improving usability of deaf people too.
