I have a web site that has VB.NET as the code behind where I want to verify if a particular channel is live.
According to the Twitch API documentation:
curl --location --request GET 'https://api.twitch.tv/helix/search/channels?query=a_seagull' \ --header 'client-id: wbmytr93xzw8zbg0p1izqyzzc5mbiz' \ --header 'Authorization: Bearer 2gbdx6oar67tqtcmt49t3wpcgycthx'
header 'client-id: Is this my client ID?
header 'Authorization: Does Bearer need to be in there?
I used to have this working, but with the expiration of the old APIs it no longer works:
Dim stringGetInfo As String = New WebClient().DownloadString(“https://api.twitch.tv/helix/search/channels?query=” & stringTwitchID & “&client_id=”)
Could someone be so kind as to provide a VB.NET example for this?
I have tried every which way and Googled, my fingers off but I have not been able to find any good examples and those I have tried always result in 401 errors.
I appreciate any assistance.
