  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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_id":

  4. Similar to

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/38375011-mature-flag-on-get-streams-endpoint

    But for the Get Channel information endpoint

    We should also be able to modify the flag via the Set Channel Information endpoint

  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?

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. This is great documentation. I'm asking if there will ever be a pubsub topic for sharing real-time viewercounts? I've noticed the get channel endpoint only updates every 15 minutes.

  12. If you have a not very tall browser.
    And you request, a fair chunk of the oAuth scopes.

    When you redirect the user to Twitch.

    The Accept/Deny link page auto jumps down to the bottom of the page.

    This means the first few/most "dangerous" scopes as well as the application name/logo and whom you are logged in as are above the fold of the page.

    Basically "suggesting" to the user not to read all the scopes and just go accept/deny.

    The auto jump to bottom of the page should be removed.

  15. The addition of the Emote Library that is coming soon is a fantastic addition, this is great for solving the issue of disparity between partners and affiliates on emote variety, without undermining the parner program and is a fantastic compromise.

    I would like to suggest the addition to the Twitch API to allow for enabling and disabling of active emotes from the Emote library via a privlaged API call from a token with sufficient privlages through oAUTH.

    An example of the proposed usecase would be 4 API calls:
    -Activate Emote [Params: Emote ID, (Optional: Emote Slot)]
    -Deactivate Emote by ID…

  16. Rather than having to get all clips from a created time frame window.

    It would be nicer to be able to get all clips from a given video ID. Both from a performance perspective and ease of use perspective.

    It's then easier for editors to collate clips from a given stream for highlight compilation creation

  17. Add a occured_at timestamp that tells you when the content in the clip was actually streamed.

    Clips API objects have a created_at timestamp which is when the user made the clip but this can be months or years off from when the content in a clip actually happened if a clip was made from a VOD which makes created_at useless for a lot of use cases.

    Even for clips from livestreams this is an issue as users can cut clips from a 2 minute (90 secs?) window so the actual content of two clips with the exact same created_at timestamps…

  18. Messages held by AutoMod for review can be received through the documented chat_moderator_actions PubSub topic, however the New Twitch API does not appear to offer a way for moderators to approve/deny these messages, which would be useful for bots or moderators that use third-party tools to further customize their moderation experience.

  19. Honestly this whole documentation is a bit sloppy. There should be clearer examples of using the APIs as I had to go Googling how the authentication actually works as the headers seem to be different than this suggests.
