Test running overlay extensions

Is there a way to test run Overlay extensions other than going Live on a channel?

What I’m doing is streaming on my testing account using: Dashboard -> Extensions -> your extension -> Versions -> your version -> Access -> Testing Accounts


Still kind of weird the need to go live for developing an extension :confused:

Thanks Patrick. That works :+1: (… but as ocgineer said, it’s still weird that we need to go live to test)

I noticed you need to put the account id for Testing Accounts. How are you able to retrieve an account id?

For a quick way you can also whisper ohbot on Twitch with #3v !id [username]


Thanks @3ventic and @BarryCarlyon ! I was able to find it using ohbot.
