  1. for /helix/streams can we add:
    profileimageurl from /helix/users
    and the game name (and potentially boxarturl) from /helix/games

    This is very basic info related to the stream and would be really nice to have available in a single call rather than 3 separate calls. This is especially important with bots that are trying to get the status of many streams in a short period quickly racking up api calls

  2. There's no gameid or gamename in the helix get videos endpoint.
    Its a bit weird that you get all the information except what's actually being played in the video

  3. It has become difficult to obtain whats on the frontpage by region.

    Please provide an API to collect/obtain this data, it's useful for moderation to understand if/why we get a influx of viewers/chatters and can allocate additional bot rules/filters and/or moderation staff

  4. On helix we can only get people that are subscribed to a broadcaster, we can't get the broadcasters a user is subscribed to.

    So basically we've got V5 channels/<channel ID>/subscriptions.
    We are missing V5 <user ID>/subscriptions/<channel ID>.

  5. For example, the YouTube Data API has the "fields parameter" to accomplish this, an example being: items(userid,username,title)

    https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/getting-started#fields

    Thanks!

  6. When user IDs in the provided data payload do not exists, the endpoint returns a 500 error. Ideally this should return a more detailed error code with an error message related to user IDs.

  7. There are two scenarios when using this API which return a 500 from the server, but which should return either a 401 or 400 and a meaningful error code to help point out the issue:

    1. If you have set your productSKU's to 'live', but you're testing in 'Hosted testing', you receive this error. A response telling you that you cannot test SKUs in live mode when in hosted testing would be great.

    2. If your extension is live and you are trying to use bits on a channel which doesnt support it, you will receive a 500 from the server. I…

  9. For both the API and EventSub please provide some sort of unique Identifier for each donation.

    If a user foo were to donate 10 monies to channel bar

    There is no way to distingish the two apart to correctly deduplicate.

    Use case: read from the API to catch up, then connect to eventsub, then be sent a donation of 10 monies to channel bar by foo

    foo did this a moment ago so it was in the API and we connect to eventsub at the same time and get the same message. We don't know if it is a duplicate…

  10. Twitch Oauth2 flow should support device authorization grant:
    https://oauth.net/2/device-flow/

    This will drastically ease the development of desktop and mobile applications.

  11. If the redirect URI of a registered app is set to http://localhost the redirect URI check must work regardless of the port, so if I start the flow using redirect_uri param to "http://localhost:3000" this should work (same as Github is doing).

    This will ease the development of desktop applications that requires oauth2 flow.

  12. Suggestion!!!

    It would be interesting for the API to offer a filter by language, in GET Clips.

  14. Currently the /goal command opens a dialog screen allowing the broadcaster to set a channel goal.

    Params would be:
    type - MUST be Followers, or Subscribers (if the channel is able to have subs)
    goal: number of followers/subs for goal
    description - optional string
    color - one of Twitchs preset color options

    Response would be either an error, or success along with the URL for the browser source.

  15. Currently Moments are still in beta, but there is a /moment chat command so this UserVoice is for that to be implemented as an endpoint when it's out of beta.

    Since moments are essentially clips with some extra bells and whistles, it could be almost a copy/paste of the Create Clip endpoint, and having the option of using 3rd party tooling could result in increased usage of the Moments product.

  16. The existing Channel Emotes API response includes a 'bitstier' value of 'emote_type' for Cheer-earned emotes, but does not include any data about the actual number of bits required to earn the emote. Either the 'tier' attribute or a new integer-value (recommended) containing the number of bits for each emote would be very helpful. Adding the same attribute to the Emote Sets API response would also be useful and uniform.

  17. Previously a call to "https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/123456/videos" included "_total" (The total number of videos).
    This was removed in Helix.
    As a replacement, you need to iterate through every 100 videos for a channel and count manually. This results in thousands of extra API calls.

  19. I was thinking that some kind of listener in embedded clips that would run a function once the clip had ended.

    For example, in my case, I wanted to run an array of clips one after in an iframe (HTML). Within twitch's API there is no way to do this and I think it would be very beneficial to twitch developers to have an ".onEnded()" function in some way for embeded clips.

  20. The AutoMod API lets you test/validate text

    Extend the AutoMod API to test a username/userID so a user passed in from tip/extension platforms can be tested to see if should be flagged/skipped/held for manual moderation
