Unable to access links for some users


#1

I’m getting a list of top streams and this user appeared.
https://www.twitch.tv/풍월량

The link doesn’t appear accessible with these characters. The user Id is 36348725808. Is this a bug with Twitch or do I have to encode these links a certain way?

You have used the Display Name instead of the logic name.

The Helix streams API likes to return the “Display Name” instead of the login name, so you’ll need to parse the thumbnail URL, for the URL safe name, or lookup the user against the Users API

Been noted a few times

Ok, is there plans to add the login name to the new API? Seems kind of funny to have to parse an URL for this info.
