Hi, how do request more VODs from the twitch api?
Using postman: GET : https://api.twitch.tv/helix/videos/?user_id=23161357 with client id in the headers.
This is what I get at the bottom of the response from the json.
How do I use “cursor” to get the next batch of VODs?
Is there a way to start retrieving the oldest vods first instead of the most current?
You can add a query parameter called
first and change it’s value between 1 and 100. This is basically the
limit parameter from the Kraken API and can return more results per page. To get the next page, make the request again but adding a query parameter called
after in the request with the
cursor value from the first response and repeat as needed. You can also get the previous page by adding a query parameter called
before with the
Right now, videos can only be sorted by
time (newest to oldest),
trending (basically popularity), and
views (from highest to lowest).
Hey Six, thanks for answering. Im still stuck though I tried both before and after, but I’m still getting the same response …where did I go wrong?
