Using Stream Key for OAuth


I’m trying to update the channel object. I already have the users stream key but not an oauth token. I was wondering if it is possible to use the stream key as a type of authentication to send a channel update request. It would be much preferred so I don’t have to ask the user for another form of authentication.

The stream key is only for authenticating with the video ingest servers so it will not work. What you could do is have your app request both the channel_read and channel_editor scopes so you can pull the stream key from the API instead of having the broadcaster manually add you as an authorized broadcaster.
