AngularJS http requests

I’m trying to pick up AngularJS by making a simple Twitch web app but I am having troubles working around cross origin resource sharing. I read that the Twitch API methods support JSONP so I’m assuming that any requests I make, such as getting user root info( should be done using the angularjs $http service, right? If that is right, how do I set headers for such a request?

Can anyone provide an example of requesting user root info using angularJS? This is what I have tried inside my custom ‘twitchService’ that I made:

angular.module('streamPlaylisterAppServices', []).factory('twitchService', ['$http',
  function($http) {
    return function(usercode){
      console.log("usercode inside service is: " + usercode)
      var authHeader = 'OAuth' + usercode;
      $http.defaults.headers.common.Authorization = 'Authorization: OAuth ' + usercode
      $http.defaults.headers.common.Accept = 'Accept: application/vnd.twitchtv.v3+json'
      return $http.jsonp('').success(function (data){
        console.log("success jsonp request. Response: " + JSON.stringify(data));
      }) // end success
      .error(function (data){
        console.log("http root request failed.");
      });// end error


You cannot use headers without CORS, which the Twitch API doesn’t support. You will need to instead use querystring parameters, like oauth_token, client_id, and api_version.
