Don't stop Twitchdown


#1

Twitch down is great to download videos for free to upload them to youtube.I aknolage th fact why you are stopping it but twitch downloader isnt working for people that i know are using twitch down(also like me) It is doing no harm up please can you keep it up? Who is with me? #keeptwichdowngoing

With twitch having a first party method for streamers and editors to download vods there really isn’t too much reason for twitchdown to stay up. If it is somewhat glitchy (which i have heard mentioned a couple times) hopefully twitch works on improving it, which if many broadcasters/editors use it they will have a reason to.

Twitchdown will stay up until November 1st, so at least there is that.

It costs money to run the servers that host twitchdown, it was a 3rd party solution to a problem that twitch has now added a solution for.

But how do we download streamer videos without twitchdown? For example, I played with a streamer the other day and want the clip. Without twitchdown, I don’t know how else to get it. If you guys are definitely taking down twitchdown, can you give me a recommendation of how I can get the videos? Thanks.

I would like to know too.
Can you guys at least release an executable or a script that does the same function locally without using your servers?


#5

Because of the use of FFMPEG and the patents that are there the script/program cannot be released. That is why it is a website application and not something that you download.


#6

How about without ffmpeg? Make it external? Source code for the rest of the script/program to compile for cross platform?
