  1. I would really like if "animatedpreviewurl" could get included in the new API.
    Previously/currently it was return from the old API endpoint Get Video (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/videos#get-video).

  2. As soon as a user changes his name, the helix/users API can add an entry to the query of the old user name with the new one for a certain time.
    This allows bots that work with the username instead of the ID to react faster to the name change

  3. Extend the banned API to allow filtering on the API by the moderator whom performed an action.

    Third party tools may need to check the actions that a given moderator did, or ask the moderator to reconcile their bans/actions post stream with additional resoaning/comments in an external tool

  4. The Create Poll endpoint has optional query parameters to allow additional votes using either bits or channel points.

    However, it doesn't actually allow multiple votes. This can be seen in the pubsub response which explictly states that "multi_choice" (property indicating whether additional votes are allowed) is not enabled.

    When creating a poll through the web interface, it works just fine as it is created through the GQL and not the API. The GQL message also has an additional property to explicitly allow additional votes, on top of the properties that are used to either allow additional votes by bits and/or…

  5. The v5 GetUserEmotes does not include bit emotes, follower emotes or animated emotes. This should be updated. Or a new endpoint should be added to Helix to get this information.

  6. So a developer can ask the api for just bits reward tier emotes or the "regular" sub emotes

    This applies to both

    • Get Channel Emotes
    • Get Emote Set

  7. We're currently unable to CRUD User Notes from the Moderators Update last year. We also cannot read/issue a timeout or issue a ban via API.

  8. CRUD for bet as streamer
    CRUD for bet as viewer

    As streamer:

    • Being able to start/cancel a bet from endpoint
    • Being able to state who won from endpoint
    • Maybe get stats about the bet (invested coins, status, nb of participant, ...) (as Events or/and as HTTP API)

    As viewer:
    - Receive an Event when there is a new bet
    - Get bet info using endpoint (remaining time, title, bet A, bet B, nb of people who bet)
    - Place a bet using endpoint
    - Event win or lose

  9. 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.

  10. You provide information on how to remove a token, how to refresh a token, and how to define scopes for tokens, but you don't actually have any information on how to request a token, nor any sample code on that or applying token scopes. Given that this step is fundamental to any interaction with the Twitch API, this seems like a fairly major omission.

  11. Topic.

    Cannot control highlight message/unlock emote rewards to enable/disable/change price or even list them etc via this API

    Example usages

    We might turn off emote "buying" on a Thursday as we are about to load a WHOLE new Set in for a big game on Monday. Is one thought.

    But I can't automate them.

    Also any number of tasks the streamer would like us (moderators/staff of the channel) to help manage but we can't if those rewards are API locked (and UI locked) out from "channel staff" being able to help manage

    Additionally, I'll get asked by the streamer I…

  12. When you have an application that uses channel points quite a lot and also reacts to them and does things, the chat is spammed with the redemption notifications which can negatively affect the chat experience.

    I suggest adding a flag to custom redemptions that prevents the chat notification from being sent.

  13. Cheering Bits is the most famous way to support a streamer. However, it can be somewhat challenging for new users to get familiar with the Twitch Chat commands to properly do so.

    I propose an API which allows to trigger a regular cheer.
    This call obviously should not be signed instantly, but sandboxed where the Twitch backend requires a "Yes / No" response via GUI from the user.

    I think this can improve the user experience a lot and it can also improve the general usage of Twich Bits.
    For instance, many streamers use overlays in their stream to react…

  14. The page at

    https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/barrycarlyon/community/channel-points/rewards

    Will list all rewards.

    But it's not super obvious which rewards "I made" or which rewards "an API call" made.

    So in theory a streamer not paying attention could delete an integration created reward.

    I'm not saying "remove" the delete button, just add additional wording

  15. I believe that updating the redemption to have a status of CANCELLED should remove any active cooldowns on the custom reward

    I understand that it needs to go into the cooldown state immediately so that other users cannot redeem it again, however setting the status to CANCELLED is our way of signalling that the event did not complete. It's how the streamer says "sorry I can't do that, have your points back".

    It makes little sense for the redemption to stay in cooldown when the custom reward has failed to be completed.

  16. The webhook/response for subscriptions returns a payload as

    (webhook example)

    {
    "data": [
    {
    "eventdata": {
    "broadcaster
    id": "casterID",
    "broadcastername": "aCaster",
    "gifter
    id": "",
    "giftername": "",
    "is
    gift": false,
    "planname": "Some Subscription ($4.99)",
    "tier": "1000",
    "user
    id": "someID",
    "username": "someName"
    },
    "event
    timestamp": "2020-10-16T17:33:46Z",
    "event_type": "subscriptions.subscribe",
    "id": "1iyAnn4NpVMZ9jYv0HDOQP4SfpS",
    "version": "1.0"
    }
    ]
    }

    But it doesn't include information about if it was a 1/3/6/12 whatever subscription or not.

    Please extend the payload (for both webhooks and the API) to contain this information about if it's a multimonth purchase

  17. Allow developers to mock responses from all common integration points- subs, bits, follows, streams, etc, and allow users to mock users as well.

    This is useful for automated testing as well as building extensions.

  18. Many times, "viewer_count" response field doesn't change during several minutes (due to caching?). However, when you're watching a stream you can see how this data is refreshed each 20-25 seconds.

    Benefit: Increase the precision of apps that use this field

  19. The cheers topic of PubSub doesn't give emote placement like the Subscribers topic does.

    Please extend cheers topic to include the Emote placement like Subscriptions does

    For example

          "sub_message": {
            "message": "A Twitch baby is born! KappaHD",
            "emotes": [
              {
                "start": 23,
                "end": 7,
                "id": 2867
              }
            ]
          }
    

    Should be included with Cheers on PubSub

  20. The twitch apps games screen is pretty limited. Many have over 100 games on there by now. So I would like to be able to build my own web app and let users log in via twitch and browse their claimed games collection where I can provide filters and search for games using whatever data is available about the games. To do this there must of course be an API where I can retrieve the game list and meta data about them.
