Embedding Stream

Hi all.

Any recommendations for how to retrieve channel names (or usernames) by user_id?
I’ve got user_ids returning just fine from the API (by way of a jQuery ajax function) but that’s not useful for dynamically embedding a twitch stream. It looks like I’ll need the channel name, collection id or video id–none of which are returned in the JSON.

My ajax call looks like this:

type: ‘GET’,
url: ‘https://api.twitch.tv/helix/streams?game=fortnite&limit=100’,
headers: {‘Client-ID’: ‘XXXXXXX’},
success: function(data) {

Thanks for any feedback.

Thanks George.
We actually just figured that out.
We were making a silly syntax error but we’ve got it sorted out now.
I was worried it wasn’t really do-able but I was clearly mistaken.
