How can I mimic the kraken "streams?channel=" response in new Helix api?

So in the Kraken api, I would make a small thumbnail on my site with a background image taken from the “preview” in the streams response. I would then grab the “name” “logo” and “url” from the channel response and create a name plate in front of the previously grabbed preview image. All the data was within one object.

the request looked like this :

However, in the Helix api, “channels” are now “users”. I’ve tried concatenating them on one request with no luck.

Ideally I want the request to look like this:

Essentially from what I’ve found so far is that I now need to make 2 requests to get the information Kraken gave me in one. Is it possible to join these two parameters so that I get all the information I need in on request?

You can’t just “join” different endpoints together.

You’ll need to make to make 2 requests, one to which will give you preview thumbnail, title, and other stream related data, and another to for displayname, profile image, and other user related data.

got it, thanks. One last thing… where can I find the twitch stream URL? I cant seem to find it under “user” although I read in the forum that channel is now user.


Channel = user

They are the same thing. A user doesn’t have a “channel” that is named different to their username. It’s just a wording change and cleaning up API URL’s
