I’m very interested in the new webhook approach but as far as I can tell it supports only persistent connections.
I’m a developer of a php based web service and currently polling data using a php script which is executed once every x minutes.
Since I am limited by the server’s execution time maximum a persistent connection is not an option for me. I would really appreciate it if you considered allowing us to subscribe to topics using an url to which a message is sent when there is an update. These topics need not be all of them, maybe only those which do not change that frequently. I am particularly interested in a channel’s live status and its VODs.
