Today we are announcing a new endpoint – Get Ingest Servers – to allow applications to programmatically fetch a list of Ingest Server URLs to enable use cases that broadcast directly to Twitch. While this functionality already exists in the v5 endpoint Get Ingest Server List, Get Ingest Servers provides this functionality as the long-term supported method. If your application uses the existing API v5 version, it is recommended that you migrate to this new version.
Additionally, starting January 12, 2021, both the new Get Ingest Servers endpoint and the v5 Get Ingest Server List will begin returning URLs using the domain
live-video.net, as opposed to
twitch.tv. If your application performs checks to require these URLs broadcast to
twitch.tv domains, please update them accordingly.
