REOPEN: Query for top clips from multiple channels returning only clips from one random channel

The post below is a topic recently closed but I am having the exact same problem.

For the past couple months I’ve been using the API to query all clips from the past day from a list of channels. It’s been working fine, but recently it’s started returning clips from only one channel in the list, seemingly chosen at random. Refreshing the page (and thus re-running the request) will return clips from a different channel in the list. Any item in the list regardless of position may be returned, but never more than one.

var queryURL = ',ocerocketleague,rocketstreetlive,boostlegacy,teambeyondnet&period=day&limit=100';
var ajax = jQuery.ajax({
    type: 'GET',
    url: queryURL,
	headers: {
		'Client-ID' : '***',
		'Accept' : 'application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json',
	success: function(data) {

Each time I run that request it’ll properly return clips from a random one of the channels, but never from more than one. The first channel in the list does seem to be returned a little more than half of the time, but it’s not particularly predictable.

Like I said, this was working fine until very recently (I think it stopped working last night, but it’s possible it was earlier and I didn’t notice), and I made a codepen (using my client ID) that had the same results.

Please let me know if there’s any more information I can provide, or any tests you think I should run. Thanks!

Anyone having this problem? It is still unresolved.

I will report an interesting artifact using your query. I was testing it out and sometimes:

    "_cursor": "",
    "clips": []

This will happen a few times it seems (by few I mean, 1-5 times) in a row and then I start to get data back again. Otherwise, this morning, all I am getting back when I do get data is a few clips for RocketStreetLive. I have not tried to scan each channel though to see what they are returning individually.
