While Twitch may be all about streaming content, sometimes you may want to download your own highlights or entire broadcasts to aggregate on YouTube (or just to celebrate – We are not reviewers).
Here’s how to enable these options in your Twitch settings, with step-by-step screenshots. For more Twitch advice, check out our guides to getting started streaming, how to host someone on Twitch, how to start a Twitch Watch Party, and how to stream from your Nintendo Switch.
Download your own Twitch broadcasts and highlights
If you want to follow your own streams – maybe to create YouTube compilations – then you’ll need to archive your past Twitch broadcasts first. Once you’ve logged into your account on Twitch, here’s what you need to do.
- Go to the top right corner and select ‘Settings’ on the drop-down menu
- Click the ‘Channels and Videos’ tab
- Toggle ‘Archive past broadcasts’ to on
This option will automatically save streams to your channel for 14 days if you just started using Twitch or are a Twitch Contributor. If you are a Twitch Partner, Turbo or Prime user, this will store for 60 days.
Then here’s how to download your own Twitch videos:
- Click on your profile picture in the top right corner and select ‘Video maker’ and this will take you to your previously saved broadcasts
- Click on the three dots next to the video you want and select ‘Download’
You can also record a video directly in Twitch if you just want to download part of the video instead of the whole thing. Do this by clicking ‘Highlight’, editing the segment you want and then clicking ‘Publish’.
Once it’s uploaded, you can download it straight to your PC, and you can remove the markup from your channel if you don’t want it in your publicly listed videos.
Another way to archive your past broadcasts is to record locally on your computer. OBS actually offers a record button right next to the live button, so you can click both while going live.
Note that OBS automatically exports videos to MKV files that are not compatible with Adobe video editing software, so you may need to convert them to another file type.
Other broadcast software with recording features include Streamlabs and XSplit.
How to download someone else’s stream
Twitch does not currently offer the option to download the content of streamers’ own within the platform. If you want to do this, then you’ll have to ask the streamer if they can send you their own personal downloads or download their videos through third-party software.
Twitch Leecher is an easy to use software to do this and is recommended by many users and I have also tested it. Download and install the file to your PC, then launch the app. To download a specific video or featured video, you can enter the channel name and date, enter the URL or the video ID (which can be found in the URL).
Please note that you should always ask the streamer’s permission before downloading anything and again ask if you want to upload the video (maybe if you’re a Mod and want to manage YouTube channel). Do not download anyone’s content without their prior knowledge.
