    "It's sufficient but I know there's got to be an easier way to get streams from Twitch. I know for a fact there's got to be a way to program something to download videos or to retrieve videos automatically; it just doesn't make sense that you'd have to install something on your computer to do this. But, working with this method, you do get your video. That's fine enough, I guess."

    "A great site that let me download and cut together videos straight off of twitch! I've been using this for gaming, but you can use it however you want!. Very cool stuff. "

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

“Lifecasting” refers to the continual live streaming of events in a person’s life through digital media and usually involves wearable technology like webcams, microphones, and the like.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Twitch.tv started out as a single channel named Justin.tv featuring Justin Kan, who wore a webcam 24/7 and streamed his “lifecasts” online via laptop-backpack system? The initial response to Justin.tv was mixed. Some watchers enjoyed the innovative idea, while some disliked the reality show concept. One thing was certain though, viewers were really curious and kept asking how they could use the site to create their own online video streams. The site was divided into several content categories, although the gaming category was the one that grew especially fast, eventually becoming the most popular content on the site. In 2011, the company decided to spin off the gaming content as Twitch.tv and was launched officially on public beta on June 6, 2011, and has attracted more than 35 million unique visitors a month. During that period, Twitch has become the most popular e-sport and gaming streaming service, having been supported by significant investments of venture capital, with $15 million in 2012 and $20 million in 2013.

On February 2014, Twitch’s parent company Justine.tv was renamed Twitch Interactive, reflective of the increased prominence that gaming demanded as the company’s main source of income. Twitch was also made the official live streaming platform of the premier trade event for the video gaming industry Electronic Entertainment Expo.

    "Don't you love Twitch? I have a few subs for some of the hosts on there now, and sometimes I want to watch them offline (I share bandwidth with my roommate so it's a point of contention sometimes because our speed is not great). Anyway, this Leawo YouTube Downloader is pretty great. It doesn't just work on YouTube, it works great for Twitch too. So if you need to download, try it out, it works like a charm!"

    "Well, this says it's a great tool for JD users, but I have no idea what that even means, or if this can download Twitch videos. This seems to be an unfinished website, and the "wiki/FAQ" section is severely lacking any information that tells someone what this actually is besides some kind of downloader."

    "The free version of this application does a very primitive job and is borderline unusable for anything serious. The cost to buy a license is pretty outrageous and not viable unless you're a big shot money maker. The platform restrictions are also pretty harsh and really limit your options if you're not using Windows."

    "I'm not sure if KeepVid Music is supposed to be as frustrating as it is, but it definitely doesn't work as advertised. It starts at around $40 and the service they use to capture the video from youtube drops all the time as youtube plays whack-a-mole with their service. If it were free it would be too frustrating to use, as a paid product it's totally unacceptable."
