Twitch is best known as a live streaming site. However, Twitch users that have reached Partner or Affiliate status can also upload pre-recorded videos to their channel.
Currently, to apply to become a Twitch Partner, you’ll need to have streamed for over 25 hours, on 12 different days, and have an average of 75 viewers.
To apply for Affiliate status, you’ll need to have at least 50 followers, streamed for at least eight hours over the last month, streamed on seven different days, and have an average of three viewers or more.
If you run a Twitch channel that’s reached Partner or Affiliate Status, here’s how you can start uploading videos onto your account. You can do this using any internet browser on your Mac or PC.

How to upload videos to Twitch
1. Navigate to the Twitch homepage and sign in, and then click your profile icon in the top right corner.
2. From the drop-down menu, select “Video Producer.” You’ll be redirected to your creator dashboard, where your video uploading hub is located.
3. Click the upload button and select what video on your computer you’d like to upload — if you don’t see the uploading icon, you don’t have the ability to upload videos. You can also drag and drop the desired video to your “Videos” section.
4. While your video uploads, you can edit its information as you’d like, including its title, description, category, language and tags. Click “Save Changes.”
When your upload is complete, the video will appear in your video creator dashboard. You can choose to premiere the video right away, or schedule its debut for a future time and date.
