Twitch Streams Will No Longer Be Stored Due To VOD System Changes

Twitch has been analyzing their video storage data and decided that old videos will be removed from accounts. Three week old videos stored on Twitch accounts will be removed in an effort to provide users with a better experience. Based on their viewing data it’s become apparent that old video are not being watched so to provide better VOD quality and to allow viewers to watch them on mobile and other platforms, they will be removed. If a VOD is made into a highlights reel of under two hours, the video can remain in the Twitch system. How long a full video is stored on the system before being removed will also depend on their membership tier. For a rundown on the changes check out this video below via the Twitch Youtube page
