Edit video thumbnail?

I am trying to automatically update the thumbnail of my latest video after my stream ends. I don’t see anything regarding this in the API, I see only a GET request to list all videos and a DELETE one to remove a video.

I tried sending a PATCH request to https://api.twitch.tv/helix/videos?id=[VIDEO_ID] with my new thumbnail URL in the body but I got a 404 Not Found Error.

Am I trying something impossible? I am falling back to opening a browser at the relevant page at the end of the stream but it would be nice if I could edit thumbnail/title/description automatically.

Thanks in advance!


Create a uservoice citing your use case


Thank you @BarryCarlyon, that’s what I thought. I created a uservoice: Update Video through Helix – Twitch UserVoice
