  2. Hi,

    It would be great to showcase a short clip of 30 - 60sec to showcase the extension.

    This could demonstrate a lot more than just a picture and is pretty common for similar platforms.

    It is somewhat surprising a live broadcasting platform doesn't have this feature.

    Hope you guys make it work.

    Cheers, Jeroensk - CVS-Gaming

  3. Many extensions support multiple installation types (panel, overlay, component).
    A Streamer must select where to install it then.

    Some Streamers preferr the overlay mode but some viewers don't like overlays, so then got the option to disable it on twitch.

    Now the viewer does not have access to the content in the extension anymore.

    If Twitch would allow streamers to simultaneously install such extensions as overlay but also as panel, the viewer would not be forced to allow the unwanted overlay if he/she wants to use the extension's features.

  4. Make a freaking bot of your own, that can AUTO Ban users who violate Terms Of Service on Twitch, Auto Welcomes, Auto chats about Followers/Subscribers/Re--subs/Gifts/Points For CONSOLE users who don't have a PC/Laptop. I would really like an AUTO BOT who can control chat, events, game title and such without having to TRUST some jerk to do it, or having to stop mid game to "!command" some crud I can't remember it to do....Programmable AUTO BOT for console users.....Yup, as an extension.....

  5. I think a pronoun extension would be great a lot of streamers are using the chrome one but if it were a twitch extension you could view on all
    Browsers and hopefully on the mobile app.

  6. Make closed captioning (CC) a universal feature. Closed captions are a necessary feature in the current year. It not only helps deaf people but also helps people understanding foreign languages or reading something they missed while watching.

  8. 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

  9. There is already options to host a stream, and there is an option to Raid a stream. What if there was an option that streamers could decide to participate in called "Pillage".

    Initially brainstorming, it would work around turning on the ability to have your stream "pillaged" by another streamer. The streamer would set a bit amount required to have his/her stream pillaged for X amount of seconds/minutes.

    The pillaging streamer would then gain the ability to have the pillaged streamers viewers watch their stream for the attained amount of time.

    The pillaging streamer, could be able to set a…

  10. Make it so the volume on Soundtrack by twitch on can be individually set by the viewer by adding a toggle to set volume manually and a volume slider in the Soundtrack by twitch popup.
    (If that's even possible)

  13. While the new Twitch integration into the Amazon Music Player allows for cross promotion, the other way is still limited with raw links to the Amazon Music Page.

    I would love an extension that allows Twitch musicians to show their discography on a Twitch panel.

    Either by a general playlist Twitch viewers can listen to or by connecting it to an artists page through an Amazon for Artists account.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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."

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
