  1. The API https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-automod-status

    Only lets you check automod for the channel.

    But it'll only do it to the value that the channel is set to

    Please allow the developer to test a given phrase at a different automod level to that that the channel is set to.

    Say the channel is set to level 1, I may want to test a paticular phrase or message about to be sent to an overlay or other property at level 3 or 4 instead for additional security/moderation beyond the level that chat is set to

  2. Extend the Videos API via a "metadata" endpoint, that provides additional data about the video.

    Including but not limited to

    • Category changes during the video
    • Offsets are relative to the source video that the video is from. So for a highlight it would report the video it was cut from and include where in the origin file the highlight is cut from.

    For Example: https://api.twitch.tv/helix/videos/metadata?id=1234
    Metadata would support up to 100 (or 50) id's at once like Get Videos

    Returns examples

    A video of type archive
    {
    "data": [
    {
    "id": "1234",
    "duration": 18000,
    "chapters": [
    {
    "offset": 0,
    "game…

  3. I have embedded my Twitch channel on my website as a non-interactive iframe in my side panel.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    However, there is so much text there which clutters the UI.

    By having my stream title there from when I was online does not add any value. It certainly does not promote my channel.

    I would much more prefer if I could just have the bare minimum there and I can show my own offline-image.

    Example:
    https://imgur.com/a/v1wc8ri

    It would be nice if we had a new query parameter option for embedding channels, which could remove any promotion texts or videos /…

  4. Please provide an API and/or webhook/event sub

    That provides information about if a VOD/clip/other content is muted

    We will need the start/end time slots for each muting on the content

  5. With the helix oAuth requirements

    It is often a problem for the less experienced developer to get started, as they don't understand certain rules and limitations around the API.

    The less experienced developer may then choose to generate and leak their client secret, or app access tokens on their "front end only" websites in error.

    So I propose that if the token is identified as App Access/Client Credentials, Twitch adds "CORS Headers" to block the request

    Consider also CORS headers to the token fetching endpoints for App Access generation as well?

  7. Currently the only way to fetch this information is via a semi-undocumented endpoint. Given Twitch's past record on these endpoints, I don't want to rely on them as by my experience they have a tendency to suddenly disappear. For this reason, I'm asking for this information to be added to the Helix API.

  8. Please extend the error message of the start commercial API to be more useful

    Current response is

    { error: 'Bad Request',
    status: 400,
    message: 'channel for id "SOMEID" has recently ran a commercial' }

    It should return the retry_after remaining value

  9. Please provide a webhook so that authorised tools can collect Commercial status when an ad is run not via the Start Commercial API endpoint (ie Via chat or another authorised user)

    So tool A will know not to try and run ads because user Fred just did

    And Tool A doesn't want to run ads after the "retry_after" period as Fred ran the ads 20 minutes early. so we'd want to reset the start point to when Fred ran ads. For say when Tool A runs ads one per hour

    For example

  10. Pagination on some Helix endpoints, such as Get Streams, is just bad, and can lead to endless looping. So here are some suggestions.

    The goal of any solution would be for any dev paging through any Helix endpoint to have a clear and reliable indication of "there are no more results, you can stop pagination". And if for whatever reason that can't be indicated, the endpoint should safely return an empty data array rather than looping the user back to the start.

    Currently, the final page of the Streams endpoint still contains a cursor (for use in before) so simply…

  11. Now it is not possible to get the number of streams in a certain section without sending a large number of requests to the API.

  12. Currently the rate limit headers "ratelimit-reset", "ratelimit-remaining" and "ratelimit-limit" are not accessible on browser / cors requests due to browser restrictions.
    I request that Twitch adds the "Access-Control-Expose-Headers" header on the helix endpoints so that tools running in a browser can follow the rate limits without guessing if they are still within the limits or having to watch for 429 HTTP codes.

  13. It would be great if an authenticated user could look up their own list of subscriptions. Currently, we allow a broadcaster to look up their subscribers, which is channel -> users, but we do not have a way to look up users -> channel. The workaround today is to get all follows for a given authenticated user and then one-by-one look up if the authed user is subscribed to the followed channel.

  14. The old semi-unofficial API endpoint to allow/deny messages held by AutoMod used to cause an event in the PubSub "chat moderator actions" topic, which made sense because other moderators should be informed of this mod action. I think at some point it also happened when allowing/denying through the website.

    Now allowing/denying through the website and the new endpoint (I think) does not provide this information to other mods. The only thing that is sometimes triggered is a channel terms action event, which is good, but it doesn't provide a direct connection to which message was affected (and it doesn't seem…

  15. It would be useful to be able to automate uploading a new channel offline screen.

    (And banner too)

    We may do game themed offline screens and want to automate doing that.
    And/or manage it on behalf of the streamer, since the only way to currently update offline screens is if you are the broadcaster.

  16. I'd like to see an API endpoint that gives me information about the level of support for a given channel/streamer and user/viewer combination.

    On one hand, I as a viewer want to have a way of getting my total numbers raised in support of a given streamer (that is, user BhaaLseN on $channel).

    On the other hand, I as a streamer want to have a way of getting total numbers raised by a particular viewer of mine (that is, user $viewer on BhaaLseN).

    The former is meant for viewers and addons like FFZ/BTTV that display numbers: amount of subs gifted…

  17. Add the functionality to sort Channel Points redemptions into categories (and ofc make this settabel via the API).

    It gets confusing and hard to find the redemption you're looking for with the current (amount of points based) sorting when you have one or more applications with multiple redemptions each and maybe then even some random single ones as well.

  18. 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…

  19. The Search Categories API doesn't seem to apply any "relevance" and direct matches are not often the first result.

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#search-categories

    Please apply relevance sorting.

  20. The Get Videos API presents the duration as a string, example: "3h8m33s"

    Please add an additional key of "duration_seconds" of the time of the video in seconds.
