Social networking services have completely transformed the way we communicate with each other. Probably this is the reason that these days, there are practically endless such services out there, geared towards a variety of users/interests. And one such extremely popular social networking service is Twitch. Massively popular with the gaming community, Twitch lets gamers live broadcast their gameplay (on a variety of gaming consoles) live to other users, and includes features like channels and built-in chat. But what if there’s an (archived) broadcast video that you want to download, for offline viewing?
Not a problem, as that’s what TwitchDown is there for. It’s a simple online service that lets you download just about any Twitch broadcast video in mere seconds. Stoked? Move past the break to find out how you can use TwitchDown to download Twitch videos.
