If you are broadcasting/streaming regularly on Twitch to increase subscribers and followers, then you need to ensure that your streams are flawless.

This means that there shouldn’t be any sort of audio, video, or technical difficulties. One of the best ways to do this is by saving your streams. Do you want to know how to archive Twitch streams? Let us tell you that.

How to Archive Twitch Streams

How Can You Archive Your Twitch Streams? 

Twitch focuses mainly on live broadcasts. This means that the platform wants to keep your experience focused just on what’s life right then. As such, older broadcasts aren’t of any use to them. But they are a lot of use to you.

So here’s the step-by-step process that will help you archive your streams so that you can use them later on:

  • If you want to store your previous streams on Twitch, you will have to first use any web browser to get into your Twitch account.
  • Then go to the Creator Dashboard. To head there you need to click on the Avatar icon present in the right-hand top corner of your Twitch page.
  • From there you have to head to Settings. Then select the Stream option before choosing the option saying Store Past Broadcasts.

This seems like an easy enough process. But do note that this setting doesn’t guarantee that all of your streams will be saved. Some limitations will remain depending on which kind of broadcaster is getting used on the platform.

Also, note that these broadcasts are only stored for 2 weeks or 14 days for most users. But this won’t be applicable if you are a Twitch Prime user or if you are part of the Partner program.

Then you will get a storage period of about 2 months or 60 days to be precise. However, there’s a way out.

If you don’t want to be part of such programs, but still want to keep your streams archived for more than 2 weeks or 14 days, then download it using an application.

Remember to use an application that will let you download and save it. This will allow you to keep it for longer.

How Can You Watch Your Archived Videos? 

So if you follow the above steps you will learn how to archive Twitch streams. But what about watching them?

Once you can successfully save some videos you have streamed, you will have to know where you can get them so that you can fix or watch them.

Fortunately, it’s easy to find them since they are present on the Twitch Dashboard. To find them you should head to the left-hand side panel and then go to the Videos part of the menu. Here you should be able to see the full list of the videos you archived.

How To Save Twitch Clips? 

You might think that there’s no difference in how to save a Twitch clip or stream, but that’s wrong. So now that you know how to archive Twitch streams, it’s time to learn how to save clips:

  • First note that even though you can’t clip straight from Twitch any longer, there’s indeed a way out through adblockers.
  • You will first have to find out the clip you want to save to your account. Note that these steps will work only with clips. As such, you will need to find segments that are 60 secs or less in length.
  • Start by opening any kind of adblocker you have on your computer, phone, etc. On a computer or laptop, you have to right-click on the adblocker icon present in your web browser. Here we are assuming that it’s Google Chrome.
  • Doing this should open up a tab for the adblocker right in your browser. Here you will be able to save or edit at will.
  • Now your adblocker should have some kind of setting that says My Filters or something similar. Generally, it should be there in the tab of the same name or menu.
  • After that, you will have to make two special custom filters specifically for the two different links on the platform.
  • Now that you are in the tab saying Custom Filters, you need to paste the two links correctly on the adblocker’s filter editor.
  • Now apply these changes before exiting the page for configuration. After this, you need to update Twitch.
  • Now find your clip. When you find the clip, you will now be able to just right-click on it within the player itself. After this select the “Save Video” option.
  • This will allow you to save the file to your machine as just a good mp4 file. As for resolution, you don’t need to worry about that. They are always at their best resolution. So you can edit them and upload them again if you want.

Know that this process won’t work smoothly if the video you are trying to save isn’t a clip. So just stick to 60-sec videos max, and not highlights or actual videos.

How to Archive Twitch Streams

There’s a tonne of the content found on Twitch nowadays. As such it isn’t surprising that people want to transfer some content offline to fix it up or just watch it whenever they want. Now, if you follow the above steps you can do the same too. However, we are all still waiting for Twitch to officially give us an offline option or such. But it seems like the wait will belong.
