The current-live API endpoint that gets the HLS stream manifest doesn't work with the new backend, causing all GB apps to not get live video streams. Is there an time estimate on when the API will be patched to work with the new backend? @wcarle

I am also having the same issue as the above users where I can't play videos on the site. I'm using Firefox on Windows 10, no adblocker. I was able to play videos on the site as recently as a couple of days ago, so something recent must've broken it. I was able to tune into UPF and the Gaiden the Ring streams yesterday just fine, but video archives are no bueno.

I love salty bet. Chat betting systems are cool. The current implementation that a user on the site has made via a user bot is neat. But it really clutters up the chat in a way where it's hard to use the chat feature for... chatting. Can we please leave a betting implementation to the site developers? Could you imagine if polls required you to type the poll choices as a chat message? The experience would be pretty bad. If the developers and staff want a betting interface, I have faith in them to implement a solution that doesn't interfere with the current chat UX (like another tab).

The lack of group videos this year has genuinely been the only time I’ve ever been disappointed with my subscription to GB. I really was looking forward to some lighthearted fun with the entire crew just being themselves, and there’s barely any of that this year.

Sending a ping over to @wcarle since this is a fairly important stream

Since playback of live streams via the website on iOS has been in a half-working state for awhile (consistent 5-sec rewinds every 10-15 seconds), I made a Shortcut that will use your GB API key to copy the livestream URL to the clipboard so you can play the stream in another player like VLC. When you import the shortcut it’ll ask you for your GB API key, just grab it from the site under Giantbomb.com/api. If you’re worried about API usage, you can view all of the steps in the shortcut. The only thing the shortcut does is try to grab the current-live link once each time you run it. If you want to give it a shot, here’s the link: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/dfa0589f323e4048a256eac296dbeddb

Let me know if you run into any issues or have any questions.

I’ve had the same issue for months as well on my iOS devices. I’ve just kinda accepted that I won’t be able to watch live streams on mobile, which really sucks.

api/video/current-live is returning a success (200) response during a livestream, but the video url is set to null. This probably breaks third-party apps but I also used this to watch streams via my desktop video player. Happened this morning during the Remnant playdate and also yesterday during the CoD MP Beta stream. Not sure if it's happened previous to that.
