Api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams dont work

Hey there, i read mucn topic here but nothing worked.

Ill just want to check if some streamers are live or not.
Before I start to use e.g. AJAX I just want to use my browser for it.

So typed: https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams/40336240?client_id=XXXXXX
This Channel is SummonersINNLive at the moment i tried, they was online and if I tried some other guys who are online I always get:

Always, every Channel.
the API broken?

It looks like you are searching via user_id which is API v5, so ensure you add ‘&api_version=5’ to the end of your API call (there may be a better way to handle it in AJAX but the above should work.)

now it goes with another streamer … seems sometimes lil bit buggy?
but thanks :slight_smile:

When I do your call with my changes (https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams/40336240?client_id=XXX&api_version=5) then I get the {"stream":null} since they are not live right now.

If I take that same user_id (40336240) and use it in the /channels/ endpoint (both of which, use user_id in v5) I get the user "name":"summonersinnlive".

This is the /channels/ call I made: https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/channels/40336240?client_id=XXX&api_version=5

So I’m not sure where you see another streamer, I tried the same method with a streamer thats live right now (to ensure I wasn’t mucking anything up) and it gave the intended information, using v5 and the user_id, /streams/ returned the proper information for the live streamer.
