Embed video branding and showInfo parameters not working anymore?


I know that the parameters “branding” and “showInfo” are not documented yet in the documentation (https://github.com/justintv/Twitch-API/blob/master/embed-video.md), but they used to work fine until a few days ago. Is that done on purpose or is it a bug introduced recently?

Step to reproduce.

  1. Go to this URL: http://player.twitch.tv/?channel=shadybunny&branding=false&showInfo=false

You will not see the channel information and the twitch branding.

  1. Put the same URL in a iFrame. I’ve created a plnkr to demonstrate it: http://plnkr.co/edit/6j2iETAsd0lZWLyDmE9j?p=preview.

You will see the channel information and the twitch branding. Please note that this is the exact same URL put in the iFrame.


While I cannot speak to showinfo, I highly doubt Twitch will ever let your embed a stream without branding enabled.
