  1. With more and more funny and useful extensions coming out it would be really helpful if the amount of slots could be bumped up by a lot, the 2 overlay, 3 panel is just not cutting it.
    And if the mobile overlay use isn't coming any time soon, make it so that we can place an extension in both the overlay and panel slot at the same time, so that we can cater to both types of viewers.

  2. Extensions can currently be used to leak IP addresses.

    Currently there is a host of scammers who create follow bots who idle in streamers chat to bait the streamer to visit them, steal their IP address and in turn send blackmail messages that threaten to DDoS the streamer unless they pay a ransom.

    A system needs to be created to prevent this. Something like:
    - An option to disable extensions globally
    - Have viewers approve extensions before they are enabled on streams
    - Have Twitch manually approve developed extensions before they can be added to stream pages

  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. 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.

  6. 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!?!

  7. 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.

  8. Probably 95% of Bits are provided through Twitch Chat by typing e.g. Cheer100.

    This way of using Bits is explained and well-known for Twitch viewers. Not allowing Twitch Developers to use the same functionality is a direct limitation and provides an inconsistent user experience.

    For example, let's say we have a game called "Racer". Join the race with bits and race against other viewers. Viewers type racer100 in Twitch chat and join the race.

    Every developer gets a certain code (racer) similar to the extension name, and the amount determines the action. The action list is communicated with !racer, more…

  9. Add it so I can make a comment to the twitch streamer without having to DM them on discord or whisper, please.

    /comment Care for [user] being toxic in chat with [ ] .

    Just would make things easier IMO and helps a lot if the streamer gets issues with running discord or any other issues.

  10. Enabling overlay extension ("Ctrl+ Stream Kit" tested in particular but probably any) currently makes it impossible to pause/unpause livestream in web player with spacebar hotkey until "Pause" icon is clicked with a mouse at lease once since page load.

  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.

  14. Good day.
    I suggest adding add-ons for the chat.
    Namely, translation of the chat in real time into different languages.
    For the convenient use of foreign citizens.
    So that every Twitch member can customize the translation of the chat text they know.
    And also provide the opportunity to select the translation of the chat text separately for the streamer.

    How viewers see the chat :
    nickname1 - Hello!
    nickname2 - Hola!
    nickname3 - Привіт!

    How the streamer and viewers will see the chat by setting up the translator extension:

    nickname1 - Hello! [EU]
    nickname2 - Hello! [ES]
    nickname3 - Hello!…

  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. The extension Icon is too close to the “Chat” title, the logo we provided is for all the twitch platform, so it’s seems like problem on twitch end…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. Allow mobile viewers to seean overlay whiles using the extension Overlay Expert. Seriously this kinda sucks for me because I like checking my own stream or watching a friend’s stream and I can’t see the overlay they have set
