Opt in for archiving

omgbbqwtflol Oct 05, 2013 11:05PM PDT

So I know there was the recent change in which you need to check the "archive" my videos button otherwise twitch will not save any broadcast. A few days ago I checked this box, and it saved one video from that streaming. Tonight, I streamed something else and I couldn't find it under recent broadcasts. I went back into my settings, and saw that my "archive" button was now unchecked.

I did not uncheck this button. Are only certain people allowed to save videos on twitch? As far as I can tell, when I first opted into the archiving my videos setting a few days ago, twitch should have saved my video under "recent broadcasts" and then let me save forever if it was anything important.

Did anybody else have this problem that they checked the box and next time they tried the box was just randomly unchecked causing them to lose VODs?

It should never “uncheck” itself. If it did, that was a bug. Is anyone else having it become unchecked?

Did you type in a welcome message for chat? Because for some reason it doesn't seem to save it when you check the automatically archive box unless you also fill in that required field.

I had this same issue twice yesterday. I checked the archive box yesterday morning before my event started. Streamed for about an hour, went to make a highlight directly after and no video! Went back to video settings, had to recheck the archive box and ensured I had saved the settings, streamed for another 2 hours, again went to highlight, nothing. Streamed for 2 more hours after and didn't even bother, knew I had lost my entire event. Pleas fix this.

Same happened to me. Any way to recover lost broadcasts? It happened just tonight so I'm hopefully it may still be around.

As simple as this may sound, did you guys make sure to click save changes after clicking the archive button?
