  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. It would be nice to be able to have the ability to add as many extensions as I please because at any given time I usually would want 4 or 5

  4. 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

  5. if you click on an extension chat message on the name of the extension

    You get a little chat UI with the extension description

    That description has a "popout" button

    That loads a broken user card

    For example https://imgur.com/a/HV1cxbk

  6. 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.

  7. The video player has many hotkeys, most usefully Spacebar to pause/play and M to mute/unmute. When an extension is enabled on a stream(it may only be some extensions, but I've noticed this with the vast majority), it seems to form an invisible pane that will eat clicks on the player (i.e. highlighting it to use the hotkeys). Hotkeys still work if you can select the player, which you can check by clicking the control strip at the bottom.

    This doesn't really feel like intended behavior and is extremely confusing if you don't know about it.

  11. When an extension had features tied to money transactions, e.g. gifted subs, and that extension has been admitted broken by the developer then do not allow the developer to continue to operate the extension until it is fixed.

    Bungie admitted on its support twitter back in mid-December that the extension was broken and even though they claim to have corrected the problem, the extension still doesn't properly work and their own support department stopped taking support tickets on the topic shortly after the fix. Almost 10 weeks of no solution or workaround as of writing (Feb 18).

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
