I am trying to use the api to collect iCal-files for the streaming schedules of various channels to get a proper overview. I understand in principle how to do that step itself. I am a viewer of all, and do not have access to either - obviously.
However, I do not understand how to get the required app/user access token. As I understand it, the user access token should be private to the channel, and I obviously don’t have access to it. Reg. the App-token, no clue how that would work. Furthermore, wouldn’t an app still have to be green-lit by the channel initially anyways?
The streaming schedules are public, thus I am a bit confused why I would need either token for retrieving public information.
Just for information, I am intending to issue the respective api-calls via AHK. No clue if relevant :¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
As a dumb example, given a twitch channel’s url (https://www.twitch.tv/CriticalRole), how can I retrieve:
- broadcaster_id of the channel
- iCal-schedule of the channel
via the API? How to do that for an arbitrary channel, under the assumption that I have no means of getting a user token approved (as the channels obviously don’t belong to me.)
Any help is welcome
