Directly use in Twitch the accepted Game Covers from IGDB.
when I check my own channel on Twitch, I like to see the colouredful section name something like "Recently broadcast categories" (in Italian "Categorie trasmesse di recente), with all Game Covers from recently streamed games/categories.
Anyway, seeing I bring lot of indie (expecially less less known ones) I often find they have no Game Cover at all related to their category. And they show and ugly grey empty cover box.
But most of them actually can show a Game Cover on IGDB... or if they don't, well I often upload a cover by myself, if I can.
The fact is...: doing this, doesn't update Twitch's category cover. :(
My suggestion is:
seeing that covers are first of all verified and accepted by IGDB admins, why not making Twitch use directly Game Covers from IGDB database?
I wish for a more colorful "Recently broadcast categories" section on my channel for the future!
Thanks for reaching out. This has been an ongoing request, and an obvious fit for IGDB and Twitch.
A separate team within Twitch has this planned. We (IGDB) do have covers as a high data priority and are indeed ready to power Twitch with those covers :)
Stay tuned for future Twitch announcements :)
Ok, I just found this in discord FAQ... it answers my suggestion:
- The Twitch directory doesn't have a cover, even though the IGDB page does?
- At the moment Twitch is only ingesting game titles, Game Covers will soon follow!
