  1. Partners get a verified badge, it would be nice for published developers to get a badge too, maybe after a certain usage requirement of their extension, like how partners have to hit certain limits to become partner, maybe enough usages or page views of the extension will get a dev a badge.

  2. An improved "hlsLatencyBroadcaster" value unlocks and improves interactive experiences that rely on precise synchronization. For example, the Tobii eye tracker Extension and many Genvid Extensions that rely on this latency for accurate click or display location.

    This functionality may be considered in the future, and we appreciate the feedback and comments provided on this suggestion. There are some technical challenges to solve to provide a better experience for synchronous use cases, though we do not have a timeframe for when this effort would be prioritized at this time.

  3. Subscribe topic only broadcasts "new subscriptions"

    So when a subscription "expires" we don't get a "payment notification" for a Resub

    This is NOT a eventsub for the "chat notification" see https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/42008104-please-provide-an-event-sub-that-emits-sub-notifi for that

  4. Allowing developers to roll back a released version to another (approved) version would allow developers to quickly address breaking issues without going through a review process.

  5. Why is the share always 80% streamer and 20% developer? Would be way better if the developers could decide their extension percentage.

    If I sell an cosmetic item in my game ( on my website) for 5$ I get like 4.8$
    If I want to sell the same item on twitch I would need to sell it for 24$ to get 4.8$

    So as developer I have these options:

    • Don't use Bits -> Streamer receives 0$
    • Link to our website -> Streamer receives 0$
    • Make prices way to expensive -> nobody buys -> Streamer receives 0$

    So if you make…

  6. If you have a created a raid.

    You should be able to use the API to trigger "raid now"

    Which is a button on the front end UI which allows the streamer to skip the 90 second.

  7. There needs to be an API that allows for the return of channal analytics.
    This would have the reqiured query parameters of: broadcaster_id

    Only stating the broadcaster_id could return the following results:
    - Average viewers
    - Total views
    - Average new followers per stream
    - Total followers
    - Average subscribers per stream
    - Total subscribers
    - Average minutes watched per stream
    - Total minutes watched

    It could also return:
    - Best performing catagories
    - Best performing tags

    There would idealy also be some optional query parameters: start-date, end-date, time.

    Adding the optional query parameters would also add the result:
    -…

  8. Add a flag, which is true, when a subscription is made through Prime Gaming. Distinguishing between a regular sub and a Prime sub allows us to react differently on these cases, like also being able to promote the free Prime Gaming sub.

  9. It shouldn't be required for manage roles such as mod/vip via the chat

    It shouldn't be required to manage editor/mod/vip via the roles manager

    it would be useful for automation/third party management to be able to manage roles via the API

  10. Or as a minimum "Raids this stream".

    But then you need a sensible reset point. So last x days works. Similar to other "time" based endpoints.

  12. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc

    As a getting started/IRC docs landing page is confusing new developers

    As it references

    The token to authenticate your chatbot with Twitch's servers. Generate this with https://twitchapps.com/tmi/ (a Twitch community-driven wrapper around the Twitch API), while logged in to your chatbot account. The token will be an alphanumeric string.

    And doesn't reference anything about the "right way" to auth/scopes needed

    Until the end of the guide.

    Authentication using not a third party site should be more prevalent in the guide.

  13. You get free tools to differentiate your platform. Passionate developers try their best to make amazing products, how hard is it so difficult to make their products visible for streamers?

    Multiple suggestions:

    • a monthly highlight message on twitch twitter (put the spotlight on a great extension)
    • improve the extension dashboard by removing the top categories based on their function. This should NOT be a standard to get the top spot.
    • let developers upload videos/trailers on the extension page.
    • make a simple checkbox, that allows developers to send updates (email, chat notification) to streamers that opt-in for updates. (how do developers…

  14. After a webhook fires, I'm given context to the UserID and Username. In the instance of "stream.online", I would like more information. In the old webhooks, I was given the full stream data object. Will there be a standard way of accessing the full data object of whatever is "notifying" the webhook? Or is it on me to use the existing Helix API to then get that information(user info, game info, broadcast info)?

    One thought would be to simply give the appropriate URL to POST to for more information, similar to how some APIs give a paginated cursor URL to…

  15. For extension pubsub

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/reference#send-extension-pubsub-message

    There is

    • global
    • channel

    topics

    please add

    • developer (with a channel ID)

    to allow "developer JWT ONLY" pubsub messages to a specific channel

    Similar to the config developer segment.
    this means there is a secure method for developers to send data to a specfic channel without burning the global limit (and triggering skip paints on other channels)

  16. Some extensions would benefit from drops such as being able to award in-extension items or coins, based on view time, and would be a great way to promote usage of extensions, especially non-game specific extensions, that could be tied into an existing drops campaign if the game developer makes the extension themselves. If you have a variety streamer extension that runs on every game, then we don't get the benefit of the draw of drops.

    I’m going to mark this as a long-term consideration as this is not currently being investigating, but may be something to consider in the future. The Drops product today is tied to a Twitch category and to provide similar functionality for Extensions would most likely be a different implementation that would require time to investigate.
