Embed URL playing wrong channel

I noticed today that player.twitch.tv is getting re-directed to the wrong channel. For example, if I want to play emongg’s channel, the docs (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/embed/video-and-clips/) specify the URL would be
http://player.twitch.tv/?channel=emongg. However I am seeing a video from the channel saltybet instead.

Curl’ing the embed URL is return a 301 redirect response to that channel.

curl -v http://player.twitch.tv/?channel=emongg
* About to connect() to player.twitch.tv port 80 (#0)
*   Trying
* Connected to player.twitch.tv ( port 80 (#0)
> GET /?channel=emongg HTTP/1.1

Is there something wrong on Twitch’s end? These embed URLs have been working for years and just today started to play this channel.

I’m running into a similar issue. No matter which Twitch video I try to embed, the Twitch Player only wants to load the channel - ShadbaseMurderTV.


apparently this is a known bug that is awaiting a fix.
For now using https instead of http, should work as a temp fix iirc.
(no guarantee tho)
