How to Download Videos from Twitch Step by Step

The grace of a platform like Twitch is being able to enjoy the videos of your favorite streamers live. Now, you may need to download Twitch videos for various reasons, and that is precisely what we will see next.

How to download your own Twitch videos

We start with the simplest casuistry. Imagine you have a Twitch channel and want to download your own clips and streams for backup. In this case, you do not need to leave Twitch since the platform itself has tools so that you can download your own videos.

  • First of all, Sign in to Twitch with your account.
  • Click on your profile icon, located in the upper right corner of the screen, and select “ Creator Control Panel.”
  • Inside the control panel, click on the “start” button that you will see in the upper left to display the navigation menu. From here, go to “ Settings -> Stream.”
  • In the “VoD Configuration” section, make sure that the “ Save previous broadcasts ” tab is activated.

In this way, Twitch will automatically start saving broadcasts for a maximum of 14 days (or 60 days if you are Turbo or Prime users). If the tab was already active, therefore, you will be able to access and download the videos of the last two weeks. If the tab is not active, you will only be able to download the broadcasts that you make from now on.

  • To download a stream that has already been previously saved by Twitch, navigate from the left panel to “ Content -> Video Studio.”
  • Here you will see a list of all broadcasts. Simply click on the 3-dot button next to the video and click “ Download.”

How to Download Twitch Videos from Other Streamers

If you need to download another streamer’s video to comment on that video or make a reaction, you can download it as follows. This can also help you watch videos offline or in places with no good data coverage.

In this case, you must bear in mind that Twitch does not have a native function to download videos from other channels. Therefore, it is necessary to resort to external tools developed by third parties.download Twitch videos

  • Twitch Leecher: Free and open-source program for Windows that allows you to download clips and full broadcasts from Twitch. Download the installer from the Twitch Leecher GitHub page.
  • Streamlink: Free and open-source program for macOS, very similar to Twitch Leecher in terms of functionality. Download the app from the Streamlink GitHub page.
  • Video Downloader for Twitch: The highest-rated app on Android for downloading videos from Twitch. | Download from Google Play

In addition to these tools, there are also web pages that allow you to download Twitch videos online and without installing any program. Personally, I do not recommend them since they have a lot of invasive advertising. Some at the very least try to install an extension in the browser or plague you with notifications and pop-ups.

Make sure, in any case, that before downloading a video, you are not breaking any copyright laws or any Twitch rules. Do not upload content that is not yours or monetize other people’s videos. Very important!
