  1. Really, who approved this. We bitched about this and now you refer us to this new place, killing off the discussion thread we had before. Hoping we let it slide. You are actively creating this problem and are unwilling to fix it.

    Test was concluded, results are in. We are not nagging our external users enough. That seems to be the conclusion of last months 'extensive' testing.

  2. Brief description

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/getting-tokens-oauth

    When you get a token, it returns token_type as bearer

    If you take this value as is and call helix endpoints it doesn't work as helix only accepts Bearer

    How to reproduce

    Generate a token
    Construct a header using the returned data by concatenating elements from the returned JSON
    `Authorization: ' . tokentype . ' ' . accesstoken

    Call a helix endpoint
    Get a 401
    Expected behavior

    Twitch accepts Bearer and bearer as valid

    or

    returns Bearer as the token type when fetching a token.

    Additional context or questions

    I'm not sure what the correct…

  3. Make more developer tools for working with embedded clips.
    At least, it can be the same tools as for the VODs player (playback api, events etc). Or you can add more features specifically for clips, for example, when you put an array of clips into player it displays as a collection or playlist.

  4. Having written one and a half client libraries for IRC now, I wish Twitch Chat was exposed over a more consistent protocol.

    • Allow read-only access to chat messages (and other related live data and events) via PubSub, with clean re-designed JSON Chat message payloads
    • No longer identify channels and users by their login name, use user IDs for all purposes
    • Send messages via an API call

    Most importantly, I would expect a redesigned API to think of edge-cases in a better way than IRC currently does. For example, what happens on IRC if a channel gets suspended, or a channel…

  5. We currently have API's to

    • Upload Video
    • Collect videos into categorys
    • Update Stream title

    We do not have any API's to manage

    • Contents of a ReRun Playlist
    • Start a ReRun
    • Stop a ReRun

    I'd like those API's please.

  6. Being able to order some of the Helix endpoints by date would be useful

    Follower for example would need in some cases 11k+ calls to the follower endpoint to just get the 100 followers who had followed for the longest time.

    This would also be good in the subscription endpoint if cumulative and streak get put into the Helix API

  7. Please add the ability to add/remove channel editors via the API. This was requested previously and marked completed but as far as I can tell it's not completed.

  8. 4 chat commands that would be great to have as API endpoints:

    /monitor USERNAME - Start monitoring a user's messages.
    /unmonitor USERNAME - Stop monitoring a user's messages.
    /restrict USERNAME - Start restricting a user's messages
    /unrestrict USERNAME - Stop restricting a user's messages

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Twitch requires streamers to run more ads

    We are building tools to help facilitate this

    There is noting in the API to let us know when ads run

  14. It would be nice if you could filter the response of the subscription status endpoint with a transport filter (e.g. "?transport=websocket").

    Its not a big deal at the moment because there only is one transport (webhooks) available but with more transports added down the line this would be a huge QoL improvement.

  15. The new API endpoint 'Get User Follows'
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/users#get-user-follows

    Could include more data than what is currently provided.
    The legacy endpoint alternative offers a lot more but not all of this info is required by default.
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows

    My suggestion would be to at least provide the 'notifications' as well as the 'logo' info. To keep the requests at an optimal size by default, extra request parameters can be given such as:

    ?showLogo=true&showNotifications=true
    (which can default to false when not present)

    or

    ?verbose=true
    (which will provide an equivalent response to the legacy variant)

    The new endpoint should also only show this extra…

  16. Could you please add documentation about how the chat filters feature in web chat is implemented? Other chat client could really benefit from filtering those messages or highlighting them for moderators as suspicious behavior.

    To pin point the exact feature I provided screenshots from the official web browser chat:
    - in action: https://i.imgur.com/CfzMx0z.png
    - and the associated settings: https://i.imgur.com/8dYADBk.png

  17. Consider a parameter option to display hosted channels if the embedded channel is not live. The parameter option is being suggested so that a broadcaster/developer can choose if they do or do not want hosted channels to display when the experience is embedded.

  20. Some third-party developers request id access on their Extensions just for the purpose of getting a viewer's username to build a more personalized experience. The only way to do so is by relying on the Helix user endpoint on their EBS. The Helix team already modified any payload that has a user id to also deliver a username and save developers the extra step of using the /users endpoint, so it's natural for Extensions to follow that path.
