The Twitch Music Library is a collection of music tracks which have been made available on a royalty-free basis solely for use in Twitch broadcasts. You may access the Twitch Music Library to use authorized tracks in live broadcasts and VODs made available on the Twitch Services, provided that you comply with our Terms of Service and our Community Guidelines.
We reserve the right to remove tracks from the Twitch Music Library as the catalog evolves over time. If a track is removed from the list, any future VODs incorporating that track will be subject to content filtering and muting; however, existing VODs incorporating the authorized track will remain available without audio muting.
- Can I use a track currently listed in a Twitch Music Library playlist even if that track is no longer listed within the Twitch Music Library?
- Please refer to the Twitch Music Library catalog list at music.twitch.tv for tracks currently available for your use, and contact us at twitch.tv/help if you have feedback or updates to recommend.
- What should I do if I have used a track from the Twitch Music Library in a VOD and my VOD has been muted?
- Remixes and alternate versions of tracks may not always be included, so please reference the Twitch Music Library catalog list, which may change over time. If you believe you have the necessary rights to the stream a track in your Twitch broadcast, we want to ensure that your VODs are not muted and recommend reviewing our help article How To Appeal Muted Audio which details the process for appealing muted audio.
- I am a music rights holder (such as a record label or an artist who creates original music). How do I add my music to the Twitch Music Library?
- If you own or control the necessary rights to share live broadcasts and VODs to Twitch and meet the criteria listed at music.twitch.tv, you may apply at music.twitch.tv to contribute music to the Twitch Music Library. If you have previously contributed music to the Twitch Music Library and seek to remove your catalog, please contact us.
- I’d like to use a music track which is not part of the Twitch Music Library, and I have secured a license to share that track on Twitch from the relevant copyright holders. Is there a way to prevent VODs containing a licensed track from being muted?
- At this time we are unable to offer exemption from VOD audio filtering based on a user's licensing agreement(s) with other companies. However, if your VOD is muted, you can as a licensee appeal the muting of audio as outlined in our help article How To Appeal Muted Audio.
