  1. The Extension Action: "followChannel" currently only accepts the channel name.

    window.Twitch.ext.actions.followChannel: void function(channelName: String)

    Most of the other extension APIs all use IDs and these are readily available in the extension from the JWT. With the way this API is designed, in order to use it you now have to make an extra network request against the Helix endpoint to get the channelName from the channelId.

    My request is to make it so this action supports taking the channelId or that the channelName is exposed in the JWT token.

  2. I am curious why Twitch streamers are limited to 3 panel extensions. I hope there is a good reason, cause I feel like 5 sounds like a better number. There's a lot of super awesome extensions out that I can want to utilize, but the limited # prevents that. Any reason why it's limited to 3, and could it be expanded?

  3. There is a lot of commotion about the DMCA thing so why not make a function so that viewers can listen to the same music as the streamers on Spotify and Youtube Music, maybe Soundcloud also. There is already a watch party function for Prime Video so why not do something similar for music so streamers and viewers can enjoy music together without worrying about copyright infringement.

  4. Make it possible to add editor credentials to another Twitch user to edit one's overlays and select the one in-use. Make it possible to add editor credentials to another Twitch user/account to edit one's overlays and select the one in-use. It would avoid security issues from sharing passwords in order to create/edit/select overlays.

  6. Add something like a small visible meter that chat can send their feedback on by liking or disliking the streamer, content theyre providing or the stream as a whole, without viewers leaving to have impact on the view count and on whats streamer doing right or wrong from chats perspective.

  7. As I was watching the god gamer Moonmoon play Ghost of Tsushima, it occurred to me that it would be nice to have the ability to donate to the game developer. Maybe twitch can make deals with the developers to set up wallets and what not, and if a streamer is playing their game/category then an extension will allow viewers to also donate to the game dev.

  8. Tengo un problema con la extensión free stream alerts, en la cual no me aparecen los banners en la pantalla del directo, ni cuando trato de hacer la prueba en la misma extensión; y al parecer es solo en mi cuenta principal por que lo intento en la cuenta secundaria y al parecer en las pruebas aparece todo correcto. necesito ayuda.

  9. As an editor for a few of my friends, as it stands the only way for me to edit their extentions is via their personal sign in ID and password. I find this rather distasteful since we are supposed to never share that information. As an editor, I should be allowed to access something as important as extensions that provide NEEDED additions to the stream! Please, I hope Twitch, fellow users, and fellow editors share in this idea and see the assistance it would offer the gamers, and the truly epic opportunity Twitch editors(Like myself) would be able to further…

  10. The current small number of merch-selling extensions are not very good or reliable, but developers aren't allowed to build any extensions to compete with them.

  11. I've looked through the twitch-dev-discord. And there seem to be many people who like me want to use keyboard-events in their extension.

    Keyboard-inputs would make a lot more interesting and fun games possible, instead of the current 5 million versions of the same quiz/sticker-extension.

    Since keyboard-events are allowed in <input>, I don't understand why it isn't allowed outside of an input.

    Also, I think the documentation should be clarified:
    "2.3 Extensions may not use keyboard shortcuts to power functionality."

    What you mean is:
    "Extensions may not use keyboard input outside of a input-field to power functionality."

  12. Buenas noches,estoy teniendo un problema con las retransmisiones de twitch referente a amazon music. Se supone que al usar esta extension,marcas una casilla donde afirmas que el audio que salga de la extension,no pertenece al stream,entonces por que me estais silenciando fragmentos de los videos y ademas siempre que esto pasa,como puedo realizar una apelacion al respecto? por que no hay una opcion como "ha habido un fallo con el audio de terceros de amazon music" a la hora de realizar las apelaciones y los perjudicados al final somos nosotros.Espero una solucion lo antes posible gracias.Añado que os he apelado…

  13. Right now if a twitch extension gets denied and needs developer to re-submit, the review notes are all gone. It would be great if for the same extension it would keep the review notes. I had an app that had a backend issue that I resolved, but I had to re-submit the app (didn't upload any new files or change anything), and the review details was empty.

  15. Some of the streamers I watch have since rebranded and changed their twitch name; however, the prime-sub notification shows the old name/another channel in the extension. Perhaps the extension is looking in an older, archaic location for the username? Regardless, it would be nice if the extension reminded people to resubscribe to the correct person.

  16. Viewers should be able to join the stream in a one on one video conference (in front of the rest of the stream) to be able to talk directly to the streamer.

    Examples would include having viewers either donating to participate or queuing and when the streamer selects the option, the viewer is also casting to the stream to ask questions or just have a general chat with the host.

    This could be a useful way to engage the audience further, encourage more active users and fills gaps between the load times on games etc.

  17. I would suggest making sure whoever makes an extension that requires bits needs to continuing offering support for that extension for as long as it remains up. I have used multiple extensions thats require bits from the users in my chat and those who made the extension no longer supported it and was just collecting the 20%.

  18. Add a way to pull users's channel points from the API. It would be really nice to be able to have a channel point leaderboard from an Extension, or directly from you
