Streamer detailed metrics for non-game developers


#1

API documentation seems to point at capability for game devs (after claiming your game) to pull analytics like hours/minutes watched etc. I have stumbled upon websites such as sullygnome and twitchstats that are able to pull these metrics. Wondering if there’s another way I’m missing? I did a good amount of research but don’t seem to find this answer.

Thanks!

3rd party sites, such as the ones you mentioned, don’t have access to any of the analytics endpoints, they just poll endpoints such as Get Steams regularly (most analytics sites use between 5 min and 1 hour intervals).

There’s also no way to get historic data, so if you want to do something like those sites then you have to start collecting the data yourself, at whatever frequency you wish to collect it, and that’s they data you have to work with going forward.
