  1. Currently, an extension I've made can help show off a channel, including showing off their last played game. As this is one of the main reasons a person may be interested in following that streamer (based on the information that can be gathered by the API), the main way to improve upon that is to show more of these games.
    It seems strange that there is a list of the user's last several played games freely available on their channel, but not to be retrieved via an API.

  2. Currently, the Twitch stream embedded inside the iframe autoplay without user consent. This behavior allows bad actors to abuse hidden video players to inflate their view count without the permission of the person on the website. As well this hurts users with limited data.

    To fix this please disable autoplay inside the twitch iframe embed.
    THIS IS NOT TO BE A "DEVELOPER" DECISION BUT A USER TO TURN IT ON/OFF.

  3. Please provide an API to manage

    • suggested streamers
    • auto host list
    • recenty streamed categories

    Basically

    https://dashboard.twitch.tv/settings/channel/featured-content as API endpoints

  4. 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.

  5. I would like my token to work for checking automod status against partner channels I mod for.

    Given:
    * All other Helix AutoMod endpoints work with mod token: manage held message, get settings, update settings
    * New restrictions are incoming such that non-partners have a very low limit: https://discuss.dev.twitch.tv/t/upcoming-changes-to-the-check-automod-status-api-endpoint/38512

    Currently, I just use this endpoint against my own channel out of ease of not requiring every broadcaster to engage in an oauth flow for me to best moderate their channels. With the incoming limits, I won't be able to keep up with demand, so it would be nice to use…

  7. We should have an API endpoint like /getUserStats or something, that returns all their stats, like followers, view count, subscribers, total streams, etc.

  8. Currently, you can use https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-all-stream-tags to get all tags, and then manually iterate through to find tags with given names, but this can be slow (2-3 seconds to search for 8 tags in my test using twurple). It would be better to have an endpoint similar to https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-games, which allows for a name query parameter. Of course, for tags, this would require also including a language parameter for the IETF language tag.

  9. Further documentation of the topics would be greatly appreciated!
    The examples in this documentation don't cover enough conditions, some topics aren't even included in the examples at all!
    I'm sure it wouldn't take more than an afternoon for a small knowledgeable team to write up the data structures.

    Thanks!

  10. I am facing issue while embedding twitch through Api on my website. I tried a lot by myself but nothing happened. I am looking for a developer who can easily embed twitch with my website https://www.d-store.co/gothic-pants.html So if you have any information about it then please do let me know. Thank You

  13. It would be important to get the latest clip of a channel, with the link, title, category and description.

  14. 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.

  15. At the moment we can either page through all followers of a specified user or check the follow relationship between two specified users. What we can't do is to provide a broadcaster and a list of users to get the follow relationships between the given broadcaster and the specified list of users. There is an endpoint for broadcaster subscriptions (Get Broadcaster Subscriptions). It takes a broadcaster id and a list of user ids. Please provide a similar endpoint for broadcaster follows (Get Broadcaster Follows). It would be very helpful and could reduce the amount of requests against the Get Users…

  16. The API response for

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-extensions
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-released-extensions

    Omits Category and Games entries

    Please add this information.

    Part of my operational work flow will involve asking the API for the dev console held settings and checking that the dev console matches what I think it should be

  17. There is no way to retrieve a list of all the user's subscriptions.
    The idea is to create a query similar to this.
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/subscriptions/user?&user_id=141981764

  18. The get-videos API (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-videos) takes either a video id, user_id, or game_id, but does not take a stream_id, so if you want to find the VOD from a stream ID you captured while the stream was live, you have to search back through a user's videos and match them up, which is not super efficient, especially if the stream is old. Could you add stream_id as a possible query parameter please?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  19. Please provide an API to obtain the recently played songs on a channel (including the timestamp when played)

    This will allow bots to catch up if they restart and/or provide a recently played function without having to store that internally.

  20. An extension/follow up to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41519041-provide-soundtrack-now-playing-information-for-a-s

    Please extend the response to include when the song started playing on the channel.

    This will allow developers to reduce spamming the endpoint by only loading/requesting when the song is predicted to end. (Start time + duration)

    This could also be solved with EventSub (https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/44672968-add-a-soundtrack-topic-to-eventsub)
