Component View - Popup blocked


#1

I’m trying to build an extension using spotify’s web api and i require broadcaster/viewers to sign in using a popup. Panel View allows popups but the component view is blocking them.

Are popups to whitelisted URLs not allowed? Reading old posts, I see that requesting OAuth from viewers was not allowed but the current policies don’t really mention anything regarding that.

Video Overlay and Video Component extensions don’t allow for linking, which is why there is no URL Whitelist for those type of views.

The only exception to that is very specific extensions, such as Amazon extensions, and this is not something that is available to any normal developer.

For the broadcaster you can use the config view to open a new tab for the OAuth flow. For viewers you will have no way to do this.
