Url API v3 to v5

Hi, i’m using this on my code:


But from yesterday this give me this error:

{“error”:“Gone”,“status”:410,“message”:“v3 is a lie but v5 is still alive. See https://dev.twitch.tv/docs”}

How i convert url for API v5?

Please read the migration guide


This is complete code i used:


$channels = array('channel1','channel2') ;

$callAPI = implode(",",$channels);

$dataArray = json_decode(@file_get_contents("https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams?channel=" . $callAPI . "&amp;client_id=XXX", false, stream_context_create($arrContextOptions)), true);


foreach($dataArray['streams'] as $mydata){

if($mydata['_id'] != null){

$name = $mydata['channel']['display_name'];

$game = $mydata['channel']['game'];

$url = $mydata['channel']['url'];


<div id="twitch-embed" class="twitch-embed">

<?php echo "<p><h2><a href='".$url."'> ".$name. " sta giocando a " .$game."</a></h2><br></p>" ; ?>


<script src="https://embed.twitch.tv/embed/v1.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" style="padding: 0 10px;">

new Twitch.Embed("twitch-embed", {

width: 854,

height: 399,

channel: "<?php echo "" .$name. ""; ?>"





echo "<p>test</p>";

} } }

if($dataArray['streams'] == null or $dataArray['streams'] == "")

{ ?>

<div id="twitch-embed" class="twitch-embed">


echo "<p><;h2>Message offline.<;/h2></p>";

echo "<p><h2>submessage</h2></p>;";



  1. Move from file_get_contents to curl
  2. Use cURL to set headers
    $ch = curl_init('https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams?channel=' . $callAPI);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
        'Accept: application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json',
        'Client-ID: CLIENTID'

file_get_contents is insecure for HTTP requests and blocked on most hosts


I have changed $ch with $dataArray but not work

// code.. //

$callAPI = implode(",",$channels);
$dataArray = curl_init('https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams?channel=' . $callAPI);
curl_setopt($dataArray, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
    'Accept: application/vnd.twitchtv.v5+json',
    'Client-ID: XXX'
  foreach($dataArray['streams'] as $mydata){

// code //

I didn’t give a complete solution.

You can learn about PHP cURL in the PHP Docs

Not sure what you mean, what do you mean you can’t call?

Returns stream status and details for streams
