Twitch is currently revising its policies as to storage of past game broadcasts, explaining that it is necessary to overcome current video on demand limitations, while going mobile. It has been announced that, for free users, full broadcasts will be kept for two weeks, while Turbo subscribers as well as Twitch’s partners will be able to enjoy those for 60 days. These are only highlights of up to two hours that can be stored for unlimited time.
Besides, Twitch is introducing muting of audio records, using the same technology that was used for YouTube some time before the Content ID. So, playing unauthorized tunes is no longer possible.
The changes are to take effect in three weeks, so users still have time to save whatever game clips they want somewhere else.
