How are you reading the response?

Im sending a curl request with php and there is no problem with user info or channel info but when i try to get channel subscribers this is the result

this is my request function
public static function request(string $url, string $method = ‘GET’, $payload = null, array $headers = null){
$ch = curl_init($url);

    curl_setopt_array($ch, array(

    if(is_array($headers)) {
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

    if(is_array($payload)) {
      curl_setopt_array($ch, array(
        CURLOPT_POST => 1,
        CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => http_build_query($payload)

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, $method);

    $result = curl_exec($ch);
    $parsed = json_decode($result, TRUE);

      return $parsed;
    } else {
      file_put_contents('fucked', $result);

    return $result;

and im calling it with this function

  public function getChannelSubscribers($id, $token){
    $headers = array(
      'Accept: application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json',
      'Client-ID: ' . $this->clientId,
      'Authorization: OAuth ' . $token,   
    $result = Http::get('https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/' . $id . '/subscriptions', null, $headers);

    return $result;

Alright i figured it out. API server responses with gzip encoded data sometimes, everything is fine! :smile:

When it doubt blame gzip or DNS.
