No way to get streamer logo via v5 API


#1

Hey, it’s cool that you are upgrading API version but I have question for you.

Is there any way to get streamer logo like in old v3 version via:

https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/streamer_login

As I can see it’s still possible, but I need an authorized twitch account.

Note: I know I can do it via [https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels/#update-channel](channels ID API), but I need to know these ids somehow.

Ok, I too quickly decided to create a issue:

For people from the future:
here is user API: https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/users?login=streamer1,streamer2,streamer3....

Correct

As per the migration guide, you’d need to convert from UserName to userID and then call the get channel by ID, end point

Or upgrade to Helix instead

Which takes UserName or ID


Check if streamer is live
