How to Record a Twitch Stream
Twitch.tv, or just Twitch, is one of the world’s most popular video streaming services. It’s primarily focused on game videos created and uploaded by users, live gaming competition broadcasts, and video shows. Of course, to watch all this, you need an Internet connection. But what if you are on the road, on a plane, or just spending time outdoors, and want to enjoy your favorite game videos offline? Some streams can be deleted after a while, too. Either way, saving them on your computer or mobile device would be a great idea, so Twitch recording software would come in very handy to download the videos and watch them wherever and whenever you want.
Movavi Screen Capture Studio is the perfect recorder, with a range of functions for grabbing, editing, and converting screen activity in high quality video and audio. Its intuitive and user-friendly interface will help you capture any Twitch video effortlessly. And, unlike a lot of online services and unknown programs from the web, Screen Capture Studio is completely safe and will not harm your device.
This simple guide shows you how to record a Twitch stream using Movavi Screen Capture Studio. Just click the appropriate button below to download the Windows or Mac version.
Step 1: Install the Program
Open the file you’ve downloaded and follow the installation instructions.
Step 2: Adjust the Capture Settings
Choose the Twitch video you want to grab and launch Screen Capture Studio. If you use Windows, select Capture screen in the launcher menu. On Mac, the video grabber will launch by default. Adjust the yellow capture frame manually to the appropriate size, or pick a preset from the Select Capture Area list. To capture sound as well, make sure a green checkmark is displayed on the System Sound icon. If you want to set the recording duration, click the little alarm clock icon and specify the time. The program will stop capturing automatically when the time is up, so you don’t have to track the process yourself.
Step 3: Capture the Video from Twitch
Click the REC button to start recording. After a five-second countdown, Movavi Screen Capture Studio will begin ripping your video, so get ready to play it. Click Pause to take a break, Stop to finish, or Cancel to stop without saving. You can also control the process with hotkeys: F9 to pause/resume and F10 to stop (for Windows users) and ⌥ ⌘ 1 to pause/resume and ⌥ ⌘ 2 to stop (for Mac users).
Step 4: Edit the Video If You Want, Then Save It
When the recording is finished, you can trim any unwanted material from the beginning and/or end of the captured video in the preview window. Just drag the triangle-shaped markers on either sides of the seek bar to the new start/stop positions. To do more editing, click Edit to go to the Video Editor app, where you can enhance the video, add music, and tweak other settings.
If you don’t want to edit the video, you can save it from the preview window. To do this, open the Save as list, click Video and audio, and select the appropriate format. Then click the Save button and wait for a few minutes while the program converts your file to the format you’ve chosen. Now you can watch your Twitch video on your computer or other device anytime, anywhere!
