FAQ - Burke's Booty Extension

FAQ



"Extensions are programmable, interactive overlays and panels, which help broadcasters interact with viewers. With Extensions, the Twitch community can interact in new ways such as heat maps, real-time data-driven overlays, mini-games, and leaderboards." – 'Getting Started with Extensions', Twitch Developers, 2019.

There are several types of Extensions:

  • A panel extension appears in the panel area below the video player. Panel Extensions stay active even when the channel is not live.
  • A video-overlay extension renders on top of the video player as a transparent overlay. Overlay Extensions are viewable only when the channel is live.
  • A video-component extension renders on top of both the video player and any video-overlay extensions. Component Extensions take up only part of the screen and can be hidden by viewers. Component Extensions are viewable only when the channel is live.
