With 3 million monthly creators and over 15 million active daily users, Twitch is the largest live streaming platform for gamers. Sometimes, both streamers and viewers want to download videos from Twitch to share them on YouTube or view later.
In this post, we focus on explaining how to download twitch VOD videos you broadcasted and how to download other people’s Twitch videos. Please note that,
- All the methods we introduced in the post are totally free, so you don’t need to pay for any Twitch VOD Downloader software to download twitch videos.

A VOD (Video on Demand) is an archive of content previously streamed live on Twitch.
