Does the Helix "new api" have video upload?

In the docs for the v5 (deprecated) API, there is a page with instructions for video upload.

It warns that the v5 api is deprecated, etc

Twitch API v5 is deprecated and will be removed on 12/31/18. The new Twitch API is live and we are actively adding new functionality to it.

But in the docs for the new API https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/ , I couldn’t find anything about video upload.

Do we still have to use the old api for uploading videos? I’m writing an integration with twitch for a website, and it wouldn’t be nice if we have to change it all in 6 months because we have to use the old api now.

  1. I assume by v6 you mean helix? Which is referred to as “new api” or “helix” not v6 as v6 is a version of kraken, not helix.
  2. Video upload is/was v4 the v that never was…
  3. Video upload is still as documented here:

Ah yeah it was v4 and they wibbled it to v5…

Yes, still via v5/old API

Thanks for clarifying. Yes, by “v6” I meant the “new api” Helix. I have changed the title to correct this error on my part.

My next question then: will the current video upload api functionality change / be removed in december 2018 as the warning suggests?

We hope that Helix will have feature parity with v5. When it’s time for v5 to go
