Here is how you can save your favorite Twitch VOD.
Are you trying to download your favorite Twitch streamer's live VOD to watch later? Or do you wish to download and save your OWN Twitch stream for yourself? Perhaps to edit a video out of it or more.
Here is how to save and download Twitch streams.
A guide on how to save and download Twitch streams
There are a few ways to download a Twitch stream. As the streamer, it is pretty easy to download your past VODs, but there are a few more steps if you are just the viewer.
So, let's start first with downloading your Twitch stream as a streamer.
Download your own Twitch streams
Downloading one's Twitch VODS is quite simple. There are only a few steps, and Twitch made them relatively easy for people to download once they are finished streaming.
Steps to download your own Twitch stream:
- Go to your Creator Dashboard.
- Go to Video Producer.
- Click on the Stream VOD you want to download.
- Click download.
Your file could be quite large depending on how long you streamed. Make sure you have enough space on your PC!
Download someone else's Twitch stream
Downloading another person's Twitch stream is not as easy. In fact, Twitch does not allow people to download streams from their website. Instead, you will have to head to a separate site if you want to save your favorite Twitch stream.
There are a few websites out there that work pretty well, and even a few extensions you could use too. The recommended site would be UnTwitch, which lets you download by just grabbing the link to the VOD.
Just head to the site, paste the link from the Twitch stream, and click download. After that, your video will begin to download.
