I’m interested in adding support for YouTube to connections, however it doesn’t seem there’s an easy way to retrieve when someone is live like Twitch.

They do have a push notifications system for regular videos. If I wanted to add support for the live badge feature, I would have to manually poll their data api.

Is there a better way for this or no?

Admittedly, having some kind of "Auto announce new youtube videos" thing could be fun if you can implement that.

If not, then oh well.

it is possible and I’ll likely do it. it’s just frustrating not being able to support live streams.

Their documentation doesn’t indicate that their push notifications would include live streams.

I know live streams on YouTube are technically still videos, I just don’t see why they wouldn’t include them or some indication that it’s live content in their push notification.
