API Stream Delay Value

I’m trying to utilise the Twitch api (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/streams) in order to get the broadcast delay information for a live stream so we can better sync up some live data in an extension.

However, any channel i’ve queried so far, the “delay” value is zero. Is this the correct value/api endpoint for me to be using and is it just bad luck every live channel ive tried has zero delay or am i missing something?

Don’t use stream delay from the API, generally speaking streamers don’t use the delay as it destroys chat interaction.

Instead use

hlsLatencyBroadcaster from the onContext callback instead
