  1. Currently, the only API endpoint which can return the current status of the channel is /search/channels, which contains a "is_live" boolean attribute.

    So when I want to know if a channel (knowing its ID) is live through the API, the only way is by calling /channels first to get the channel name, then by calling /search/channels with the channel name, and finally sort the results to find the correct channel.

    This is excessively time and ressources consuming, for both developpers and Twitch servers (two API call instead of just one). Would be great to add a "is_live" field in /channels…

  2. I would like to request that the booleans phoneverified and emailverified be added to the Get Users API.

    email_verified was already a part of the v5 Get User endpoint.

    The reason for this is because I would like to create an app that uses the Twitch API that would only allow access to users that have a verified phone number, to prevent/reduce spam from malicious users.

  3. Hi
    I hope you are all doing good
    I need some help. I am looking for a developer who can easily integrate twitch with my website https://cloptoncapital.com/. I tried a lot by myself but nothing happened. So if you have any information about it then please do let me know. Thank You

  4. Currently, the only way for a bot to know its chat limits is by hard-coding them. Even using the (undocumented?) user chat info endpoint isn't sufficient to determine what hard-coded limits to apply today, since whisper limits depend on when an account was verified.

    It would be much better for a bot to query a (documented) endpoint and retrieve its rate limits in that way.

  5. Stop asking for my mobile number to register applications or for any reason at all.

    You already get 2fa by sending the verification code through email. Sending it through mobile is an added security risk. It only makes it easier to compromise the account when hackers can just contact the mobile operator to be able to clone our mobile number.

    The verification code through email is plenty. I have secure passwords on both email and twitch accounts, I can make sure they are safe, I can control that. I can't control what my mobile operator does with my SIM ID.…

  6. If a user is banned from chat due to email or phone "cross ban" as per:

    Curbing Ban Evasion
    
    We know there are many reasons someone may need to manage more than one account, so you can verify up to five accounts per phone number. That said, to help prevent ban evasion, if one phone-verified account is suspended site-wide, all accounts tied to that number will also be suspended site-wide. Users won’t be able to verify additional accounts using a phone number that is already tied to an actively suspended account. 
    
    At the channel-level, if one phone-verified or email-verified account

  9. The Kraken API for querying videos lists the available resolutions for archived broadcasts and current streams. The new API does not.

  10. So I'm trying to do a multi-room audio solution with Mopidy (https://mopidy.com/) and Snapcast (https://mjaggard.github.io/snapcast/), and I'm following many DJs on Twitch, and tune in for the music. I'd like to be able to have a Mopidy extension to be able to receive and listen to Twitch streams from the server, without having to use my phone or anything.

    I don't mind if I need to login/OAuth token, I don't mind for the usual occasional audio ads, I just want to be able to access the AUDIO stream so I can listen to it more conveniently.

  11. Could you add an endpoint equivalent for the Get User Emotes endpoint? my application uses the old one to show all the emotes a user can use but its not getting updated to support the new kinds of emotes being added to twitch.

  12. Given that EventSub only uses an App Access Token.

    It's possible for a developer to obtain user authentication and never store the token (and/of refresh token if one exists (ie implict has no refresh)) and only utilise EventSub.

    Please provide an endpoint

    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/scopes

    With a required parameter of:

    id - a userID

    That accepts ONLY An App Access Token

    That returns

    {
    data: [
    'array',
    'of'
    'scopes'
    ]
    }
    

    To allow developers to check what scopes a user has authorised the developer/ClientID to utilise

  14. There are a lot of bots and some of them get gifted subs because they are just a "normal" user. anotherttvviewer, carbon14xyz etc. are all known bots and I think the developers of the bot should have the option to mark them as bots like in discord. It would be easier to understand for streamers, and they shouldn't get gifted subs.

  15. I want my Twitch Extension to be able to copy text to clipboard. It seems as though that the iframe allowed permissions are limiting this. Therefore I request for Twitch staff to add clipboard-read; and maybe clipboard-write;

  16. Events endpoints like https://api.twitch.tv/helix/moderation/banned/events and https://api.twitch.tv/helix/moderation/moderators/events only provide a short history of events.

    This makes it difficult when a 3rd party dev takes on a new client to collect historical data from before they started offering services to the new client. Answering a question like when did I mod this mod? Is not something that can be answered without historical data.

    Allowing a request for as much historical data as available (hopefully more then the current amount provided by the endpoints) or requesting for a specific time amount would allow new 3rd party dev and single custom one off developers…

  17. I would love to have as an extension of the recently released Prediction API a way to be notified (EventSub or webhook) when someone just spent some channel points in a prediction.

    I understand that for big channels a lot of notifications could be sent at the same time, but why not at least merging some notifications in one to bring down a bit this issue?

    It could be an array of predictor objects with defined max amount of objects per notifications (let's say 100, if 1000 predictors only 10 requests would be sent by the API).

    The difference with…

  18. Okay, I got the user access tokens... not how to use it? The page ends without a word...
    (like how to get what user is the one who accepted the request).
    Also the scope list is not full - Discord use other roles as well, not mentioned in that docs.

  19. The Developer APIs are often used to resolve relationships with sets of accounts used in follow bots through the Block User Endpoint. It would be useful if we could expand the reasons to allow developers to programmatically report bot accounts to help Twitch in removing these accounts. We are all actively building systems to help combat this issue on behalf of Twitch, so let us do our best to help your team.

  20. First of all, thank you for providing developers with valuable tools and apis for twitch. I greatly appreciate the code samples that were provided, however I noticed that there was only a code sample for the authorization code flow. I feel that developers would greatly benefit from examples of how best to work with the implicit code flow. I know this has been an issue for me. For example, if you create an electron application with a modern javascript framework that manages routing, the redirect part of code flow becomes a sticking point. Most of them will use localhost for…
