The easiest way to download twitch vods.
DEPRECIATED AS OF JULY 2018 - Get the standalone version for unrestricted use. The hosting provider for this service has started to charge for bandwidth overusage. Since this service uses a lot of bandwidth this makes this service not viable any longer. Check out the standalone version if you need to download twitch vods.
This tool will create a .mp4 file for you to download without any complicated ffmpeg or command line shenanigans.
Just put in the VOD ID, the start, and end time of the clip and download.
Just "right click" and "save as" the video to download it
When you click the link to the download right after sending the download request you will most likely find a 404 page. The Downloader needs some time to process and download the vod from twitch. So just refresh after ~1min and the file should be there.
If the file is not there after 1min the vod might not be compatible with this downloader. I am still working on making this tool work for every vod.
Click the "Check Status" to get an update on the progress of the download.
Sometimes you will find that the vod downloader is a bit slow. That is because the server behind this site has to download all the parts of the vod that you are interested it and then has to combine the downloaded chunks into one big file.
With one hour long vod parts the server has to manage (download and merge) over 200 parts totalling over 1 gb. If many people simultaneously are downloading vod's, that means the max broadcast speed is reached and the server has to wait longer for the parts to arrive.
