    Do your twitch streams archive?

    I've heard a lot of people saying the twitch streams from the PS4 don't archive even if you are opted into archiving.

    I've done a considerable amount of streaming over the weekend and when I checked my twitch I see each session has archived:

    (totes not meant to advertise my channel)

    etc

    I can save them forever and even upload them to Youtube. So is this just an exception? Are anyone else's streams getting archived?

    It seems some people are getting archived and others aren't - I'm not sure what the difference is yet since the PS4 doesn't come out here till the 29th and I haven't had a chance to play around with it.

    My guess is that it's a twitch side setting.

    On the PS4's website it says that twitch archives don't archive yet but they will be adding the feature later.

    Well as you can see, mine are. I'm just curious if I'm just an odd exception.

    @fistfulofmetal: Hmmm I don't know then. I tried it out yesterday and it didn't archive for me.

    Is the stream quality that low-res and pixelated or is it my connection viewing the videos on twitch?

    Interesting. Hopefully this becomes a more consistent thing. It'd sure be nice to be able to count on exporting stream highlights to YouTube.

    @fleshribbon:

    That's the quality. It's 480p at best for Twitch. UStream seems to be 720p but I don't know about archives for that.

    Twitch does not save my broadcasts. Kinda annoying to be honest! :)
