Bring back a function similar to .getPlaybackStats()
I would like to work with embeds, and more specifically a way to get how much the current player's stream latency is. From what I can tell, player.getPlaybackStats() was the only way to do this, and is now deprecated, and returns null 99.99% of the time. (I was lucky to get it working once, but yeah, it's gone.)
Apologies for any ambiguity with the status. This data's availability has not changed in anyway, but the documentation for it had been removed erroneously. The documentation for getPlaybackStats(), including a description for each element in the returned object, will be added back with today's deployment.
When you say "To be added back into the documentation" what does that mean precisely? Is that to say that an alternative way to get this data exists, but is undocumented and needs to be shared... or that there is no official way to do this and that clarification is to be more clearly defined in documentation?
To be more specific, are there plans to make this data available via this means or another in the near future... or is it intentional for this information to not be available going forward?
I don't believe this ever went away, I think this may be a bug. I raised a github issue. https://github.com/twitchdev/issues/issues/185
