  1. I am currently developing a native Android application for Twitch and want to make use of the OAuth2.0 API. Since the Twitch Authorization Server doesn't seem to support the PKCE (Proof Key for Code Exchange), i will have to put my client secret into my native application, which isn't secure at all, because the app can easily be decompiled.

    This is a requirement for all native apps, as stated by the IETF in RFC 7636 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7636).

    I hope to see this implemented soon, because this poses a huge security risk for all native apps and their developers.

  2. In Twitch v5, the Get User Subscription endpoint contained a created_at and a streak for the current user subscription for a broadcaster.

    Helix, lacks this functionality, and thus it is impossible to determine how long someone has been subscribed for, and also impossible to determine if they've renewed their subscription.

    These fields are imperative to some applications, especially ones that want to externally reward members monthly for each month they've subscribed. Please return these fields to the endpoint!

  3. When viewers cheer, they use cheermotes and commonly emotes in their cheer messages. Unfortunately, the payload received from EventSub's channel.cheer callbacks only have the raw text as entered by the user, with no indiciation of which portions of that text are cheermotes nor emotes. Thus, I propose the following update to the callback payload, similar to the channel.subscription.message event, that passes along the data for both so that a consumer of EventSub can reconstruct the message:

    {
        "subscription": {
            ...
        },
        "event": {
            ...
            "message": {
                "text": "Rah Rah Cheer! cheerwhal1 Cheer100 notACheer101 finite6ThrowBall",
                "cheermotes": [
                    {
                        "begin": 16,
                        "end":

  5. It shouldn't be required for manage roles such as mod/vip via the chat

    It shouldn't be required to manage editor/mod/vip via the roles manager

    it would be useful for automation/third party management to be able to manage roles via the API

  7. Right now there is no official way (there is an undocumented endpoint) to determine whether a stream is sub only or not. Subscriber only status prohibits a lot of people from interacting with the stream, so it'd make sense for applications to be aware of such a state.

  8. Currently twitch embed does not support vod chat and neither does the helix api.

    Twitch only allows vod chat to be seen directly on the website.

    This data could be used in a great number of ways by third-parties particularly video editors.

    Please add a way to retrieve chat for vods

    No? ok. Sadge

  9. Emotes are a commonly used feature of Channel Point Redemptions requiring messages. Unlike the EventSub Subscription Message events which provide emote ID and placement data, Channel Point Redemption events do not. I propose the following change to the Point Redemption notification payload:

    channel.channel_points_custom_reward_redemption.add and channel.channel_points_custom_reward_redemption.update:

    {
        "subscription": {
            ...
        },
        "event": {
            ...
            "user_input": {
                "text": "Channel Point Message! finite6ThrowBall",
                "emotes": [
                    {
                        "begin": 24,
                        "end": 40,
                        "id": "emotesv2_4133039724974aa59589549eae677d03"
                    }
                ]
            },
            ...
        }
    }
    

    This allows for a client to properly construct the channel point redemption input, with emote images, similar to the channel.subscription.message event.

  10. Currently, it is easy to tell if a user that sent a message in a streamer’s channel is a subscriber, VIP, or moderator of that channel. However, there is no way to tell if that user is a follower of the channel.

    With the rise of hate raids and malicious messages, I want to ensure that if a streamer is using a chat box overlay, that they have the option to only let messages from followers appear. Malicious users usually don’t follow the channel, and so this will prevent their messages from appearing on stream.

    I do understand that this…

  11. Hey. I know that people are requesting API for Channel Points. But I came up with better and easier idea.

    When streamer creates new reward in dashboard, there should be option to "run a link" in background after reward is redeemed. This type of button will trigger bot with GET-request and bot will run specific action.

    Why I think this approach is better than API:
    1. No API on Twitch side, obviosly.
    2. Bots won't be abble to control Channel Points directly.
    3. This will work with any bot who will support this kind of triggers.
    4. Easier to use…

  13. Imagine the following attack for the OAuth 2.0 authorization flow:

    1. Attacker steals the authorization code from the redirect URI.
    2. Attacker forces his instance of the client to redeem the victim's authorization code.
    3. If the attacker's instance of the client is faster than the victim's instance of the client in redeeming the authorization code, the attacker will get a valid login session within his instance of the client, but for the victim's account.

    This attack should especially get attention in the context of Twitch and live streaming, since many streamers are definitely not aware of this vulnerability: If people are logging…

  14. On the Dev console
    On Extension Pages before submit review or in the review submit dialog

    Please add a generalised queue metric of how long the queue is

    So developers have a better expectation

    This metric should also be floated to the dev console extensions home page

  15. It's possible for a third-party app to query a user's followed channels, but not followed categories. This is a very useful tool for creating alternate views to a follow list

    Use-case: Raid recommendation tool - it compares channel stats to your own and recommends those that are most similar, and also those you haven't recently raided. To do this, it needs to start with a list of everyone you follow who's live, and then does further research.

  16. If an extension is updated, there generally isn't a good way to tell streamers about it.

    It would be useful if an extension can push a notification to the bell/notification list, like how drops work/notify.

    And/or find a way to present an update notification to the main Twitch dashboard.

  17. would love a follow button that works like Twitter Follow/Tweet button. To avoid the need to oAuth-loop it and users would prefer that rather than granting access to their account for developers to throw a follow at any channel.

  18. 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.

  19. An update on Jan 31, 2019 gave channel moderators the ability to add comments to users within chat. There is currently no way to use the API to be able to set or retrieve comments for users in chat.

    This should be available to the broadcaster and all moderators within a channel.

    To add a mod comment to a user, the endpoint could take the following data as inputs:
    - User: {user's name}
    - Moderator: {mod's name}
    - Broadcaster: {broadcaster's name}
    - Comment: {comment to be applied}

    On success, this would return the following:
    - Success: {true}
    - date: {date}…

  20. The problem occurred after the release of an extension game i developed, where the viewers could spend channel points to obtain in-game currency. With over 6000 viewers, the chat became impossible to moderate as there were so many messages per second. This very simple option would greatly relieve the chat in such situations.

    E.g.: "is_highlighted" (defaults to true)
