Are you tired of losing your Twitch streams once they’re over? Do you wish there was a way to save and download your broadcasts for future viewing or editing purposes? Well, look no further! In this blog post, we’ll show you how to easily save your Twitch streams so that they can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Whether it’s for archival purposes or just for personal enjoyment, having the ability to download and re-watch your past streams is an invaluable tool for any streamer. So let’s get started on learning how to make the most out of your Twitch content!

How to save and download your Twitch streams

How to have Twitch automatically save your broadcasts

One of the easiest ways to save your Twitch streams is to have them automatically saved by Twitch itself. To do this, you need to enable the “Store past broadcasts” option in your Twitch settings.

First, log in to your Twitch account and go to your Creator Dashboard. Click on the “Settings” tab and select “Channel”. Scroll down until you see the “Store past broadcasts” option and toggle it on.

Once enabled, all of your future streams will be automatically saved as VODs (video-on-demand) for up to 14 days. If you want them all permanently saved, you can also download them manually within that time frame.

It’s important to note that this feature only applies to future broadcasts – if you want old streams saved as well, make sure to enable this setting before going live.

By having Twitch automatically save your broadcasts, you’ll never have to worry about losing a stream again! It’s a simple yet effective way of preserving your content for both yourself and any viewers who may have missed out on watching live.

Downloading your Twitch VODs

Downloading your Twitch VODs is an incredibly useful feature that allows you to keep a copy of your streams, edit them or even share them on other platforms. It’s also very easy to do.

Firstly, go to the Video Producer tab on your channel dashboard and select the video you want to download. Then click on the three dots next to it and choose Download. Keep in mind that this option is only available if you have enabled saving broadcasts in your settings before streaming.

Once downloaded, you’ll find the video file in .mp4 format with its title being a combination of date and time. You can change this name later if needed.

It’s important to note that downloading large files may take some time depending on your internet connection speed. Make sure not to close Twitch during the process as it might interrupt or stop the download entirely.

There are many reasons why someone would want to download their Twitch VODs; perhaps they want a backup version for future reference or maybe they’re planning on creating content from those videos elsewhere. Whatever reason it may be, having Twitch automatically save and allowing yourself access whenever necessary is always beneficial for all streamers!
