How To Record Twitch Vods

Do you want to know how your content is doing? Do you want to save that content for other people to watch? In that case, you need to activate VODS on your Twitch channel. VODS are videos on Twitch you have previously recorded. 


They automatically get saved into your Twitch channel. If you want to know how your videos are doing. Or, you want to listen to your voice and see if it’s too loud or not, you will need to enable this option. 

Saving your content lets you spot things you have otherwise missed. This is the ideal way of improving yourself. So, you need to go back and watch your own videos to how everything was. Plus, your fans will be able to watch your streams even if you are offline. 

These VODS will be saved in your channel. That’s why people will have access to them at any time. Since VODS are disabled by default, you need to know how to enable them. This is an option you should activate right after creating your Twitch account. 

If you don’t know how to do it, you’ve come to the right place. We have prepared the ultimate guide for you. We will show you how you can record your VODS and what you should do to enable them. Let’s begin. 

Step 1

Start by logging in to your Twitch channel on the browser. Now, for those who ask if you can access this feature on the phone app, the answer is no. You will have to open a browser in your phone to gain access to the option you are looking for. 

So, once you’ve logged in to your account, go to the top-right corner of the screen. Look for your profile picture. Click on it. This drop-down menu will appear. Click on “Creator Dashboard”. 

Step 2

On the left side of the menu, select “Channel”. This will open a new window. Here, click on “Store past broadcasts”. To do that, click on the button right next to the name. If it glows green, it means you have activated it. This feature will help you store all your VODS for a specific amount of time. The time you get depends on the premium account you have. If you have Twitch Turbo, or you are a Prime user, the videos will remain saved for much longer. 

Step 3

Now, all you have to do is start streaming. When you are done, it will be saved to your “Channel” in “Videos”. This is the first tab from the top menu. Select it. Here you can see all the VODS you have created. Your fans can see them too. Isn’t it convenient?



VODS are crucial for your success. If you want to improve your content, you need to watch yourself to see how you did. The more you improve, the better. Plus, all of your followers will see the awesome videos you’ve made. Even when you are offline. That’s why recording VODS on your Twitch channel is very important.
