  1. 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.

  4. I have idea for Twitch related service (including extension) and I would love to charge streamers whose using the service, by flat amount or by calculations of number of viewers/subs.

    The project would consist of 4 parts: the Twitch extension, few cloud services, app installed by the streamer and website for promotion and payments. While I don't think I can charge streamer via Twitch for installing the extension on their channels, there is question: Can I charge the streamer for using the associated app/cloud services?

    I imagine the client side app (on the streamer side) in order to work properly…

  5. It would be great to have a panel feature that would autoplay highlight/clip videos when a viewer clicks on our page or on the about page.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. I have an issue with every extension on twitch. Somehow I can not use them or see them properly, nor can I edit their overlay. http://i.prntscr.com/6yBRgWI-RoGQF7VgFUJc2w.png

    How can I fix this? I tried new browsers, updating my extensions, reinstall extensions, tried to use twitch app, clearing internet cache and cookies, relog-in, but still the same. Is something wrong with my account? Because everyone else see them properly shown, I just don't see them right.

  9. 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.

  10. None of my panel extensions show up anymore. They were working before, but the cards appear empty now. In extension manager they do show up, but the configuration pop-up is empty.

    Edit: They do show up when I'm not logged in. But how do I configure them if I can't see them when I'm logged in!?!

  11. Right now an Extension's Discovery Page can only be in one language. It would improve the amount of streamers that would be able to discover an extension if the developer could optionally provide translations for various languages.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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%.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  20. 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."
