Watchparty status API/webhook/pubsub
Please provide an API that provides
- what program is being watched
- What season/episode it is
- Episode/program title
- Cast information
- When started
- Link to the program on amazon (it's ASIN/whatever)
Information should be provide by
broadcaster_id filter as a API
Sent out as a webhook (watchparty started, watchparty ended)
Provided as a PubSub event (started/ended/progress events?)
PubSub and webhook should also provide information about a Watch party about to start
The watch party player does a countdown to show start, so that should be replicatable.
People whom are not amazon prime members, or do not have that program available to them in their region will watch the program via another medium, and streamers are showing episode information and timers on screen. They are generating this manually.
It would be nice to do this automatically using an API from Twitch.
And the additional meta data will let us developers provide more tooling/information to the viewers. Such as looking up the program on other API's to get show/episode/cast information etc
