  1. Currently there's no way to get the status of a rerun stream, as /helix/streams only returns streams with the type "live" and "" (error)

    Adding reruns with its type set to "rerun" would allow it to return rerun streams as well.

    It's a problem that you can't get the status of a rerun stream because you then have no other choice than to treat it as offline, which means you e.g. may initiate a host, which will interfere with the stream.

  2. Given the fact that Twitch had to take down the follow/unfollow api's due to bot programs that are out there - my suggestion would be to have an approved set of developers that propose and showcase their applications.

    This way Twitch could bring back the follow/unfollow API and any service or developer that was in violation of Twitch's TOS regarding the API could be warned and ultimately have their access and credentials removed.

    Twitch Developers could review the logs of which applications were connected with BOT services and immediately shut those down rather then removing the api in its entirety…

  3. The new helix endpoint to modify channel information ( https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#modify-channel-information ) doesn't work with a user token from a user that has been added as an editor to the channel. This basicially shuts out any clientside tool used by editors where it's impractical for the broadcaster to directly authorize access. Editors should be trusted enough to be able to choose their own tools.

    Allowing access to editors would especially make sense if this is intended as a replacement for the v5 endpoint ( https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#update-channel ), which does allow editors to update the stream title and game. It would also work…

  4. Subscribe topic only broadcasts "new subscriptions"

    So when a subscription "expires" we don't get a "payment notification" for a Resub

    This is NOT a eventsub for the "chat notification" see https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/42008104-please-provide-an-event-sub-that-emits-sub-notifi for that

  6. In the channel settings, you may specify a "profile accent color" to represent your brand.
    Right now, this isn't exposed in the API at all.

  7. Allowing developers to roll back a released version to another (approved) version would allow developers to quickly address breaking issues without going through a review process.

  9. Request

    Organize channel.subscription topics to allow for alert like notifications to properly be provided. What displays in chat should be able to be mimicked via EventSub topics without having active tracking or additional api calls; Provide missing data where needed; Create new topics to fill in the gaps.


    Current Scenarios

    Brand New Subscriber: If a user subscribes for the first time in the channel, we get an alert as soon as they sub. This is incidental that it works properly for stream based alerts, as we are actually receiving the payment transaction rather than the in chat event.

  11. When a "gift bomb"

    there is no way to gather all the gifts into one event.
    Each gift in a bomb should have a ID to link it to the header event.

    IRC sends a header saying "x is giving out y subs to the community"
    But the USERNOTICE events, don't say they belong to that event.

    Please provide a way to group the events, something as simple as a "parentid" in the child gifts subs, that'll link to a "childid" in the header event.

    This header and extra ID's need to be provided on the PubSub event…

  12. Trigger: Triggers whenever a broadcaster hosts on a broadcaster's channel.

    Motivation: To my knowledge it is not possible to query hosts in real time. In our Twitch Alerts Extension it is currently not possible to show when a streamer is hosted by another streamer.

  15. The chat_moderator_actions topic in the PubSub documentation appears to only work with a broadcaster OAuth token. This prevents third-party modding tools that don't use some kind of centralized system from accessing information that is vital for effective modding (such as which mod performed an action, actions that aren't otherwise visible like unbans and viewing and approving messages filtered by AutoMod).

    With a centralized system the broadcaster could provide a token somehow that the moderators don't need to have access to directly, however with purely clientside tools this is not feasible. I'm also not sure why moderators should not have access…

  17. The idea is simple: Add the same phone & email verification options to the ability to actually follow a channel, and thus also giving account age requirements to be able to follow a channel. This will allow small streamers being targeted by hate raid Bot attacks to simply prevent the bot attacks easily, instead of being driven off the platform.

  18. While it works on Android, it is still impossible to use iframe embeds on web-based mobile iOS apps. The reason being that iOS' WKWebView expects <schema>://<host> in the CORS headers returned by Twitch. Twitch uses the parent parameter to generate those headers. Unfortunately, iOS prevents the use of http://, https:// and file:// as schemas and forces us to use a custom schema like ionic://localhost (or anything else) for accessing local files.

    The request is to add the ability for twitch embeds to return a CORS header that can match a custom scheme like ionic://localhost.

    I read through all…

  20. Why is the share always 80% streamer and 20% developer? Would be way better if the developers could decide their extension percentage.

    If I sell an cosmetic item in my game ( on my website) for 5$ I get like 4.8$
    If I want to sell the same item on twitch I would need to sell it for 24$ to get 4.8$

    So as developer I have these options:

    • Don't use Bits -> Streamer receives 0$
    • Link to our website -> Streamer receives 0$
    • Make prices way to expensive -> nobody buys -> Streamer receives 0$

    So if you make…
