General streaming problems (404: streamtoken invalid)

Hey everybody!
Over the holidays I have tried to implement a simple rest based program that streams data to a plot.

I was able to create a plot, but I am unable to send any data to plotly via stream. It seems to me that this is a general problem for any rest based streaming, and not a problem with my implementation. I have come to this conclusion since none of example plots work. Additionally i have tried different examples in other programming languages but none seem to get any result. All I get is the response: “404: streamtoken not registered or valid”.

Since I was unable to find any feedback or official statement on the topic I decided to write this post. If somebody could link me a working implementation based on a rest request I would very much appreciate it.

Here are some of the examples that seem to be symptoms of this problem:
