Twitch on PS4 Will Not Archive

Is your Twitch stream not archiving, no matter how much you beg? Here's why.

If you’ve tried to archive your Playstation 4 gameplay on Twitch, then you might’ve encountered a strange problem. Even if you’ve already followed the helpful tips in a previous article about archiving your post on Twitch, your channel is just pretending there are no videos.

Now why is that?

According to the Official Playstation FAQ on the subject, while the PS4 supports livestreaming of both Twitch and Ustream there is a slight hiccup…

Can I archive my livestreams on Ustream or Twitch?

At this time, livestreams will not be archived for further viewing on Ustream or Twitch. However, this feature will be supported in the future. Please follow PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation.com for news regarding PS4’s video services following launch.

Evidently, this is a common issue with the PS4, but there are some viewers on forums who have reported being able to archive their Twitch streams, even though for the rest of us, that seems like it’s going to be a long way off. 

Does this change your mind about streaming on your PS4?
