How to activate the video-on-demand feature for your Twitch channel
Twitch offers a useful feature with the VOD system with which you can record and save your broadcasts. Since the function is initially disabled, proceed as follows:
- Open the Twitch TV website in your browser and log in with your user data.
- After logging in the top right, click your profile picture and select "Settings" in the drop-down menu.
- Select the item "Channel and Videos" on the left in the navigation.
- You will find the option "Save earlier transmissions" under "Stream Key & Preferences". Active the option using the slider.
How long a video is stored depends on several factors. The standard storage duration is 14 days. For Twitch turbo, partners or prime subscribers, the storage period is sized with 60 days a little longer.
How to download Twitch videos
If you want to download your Twitch streams, this also works on the dashboard. Call up the category "Videos". Click on the link below the preview image and download the video. If you want to download videos of other streamers, you must resort to a software solution such as Twitch Leecher.
