It would be nice for those people choosing to migrate exclusively to Twitch Uploads if they could import their videos from services like YouTube without having to reupload all of them or "start over" from scratch, especially for those with several hundred videos to bring over.
Yes yes & more yes.. I am in same boat. I have Terabytes worth of videos that I would like to just click "Import all" and have all the info & files just copied from Youtube to Twitch.

I would love to see this (thought I'd just reply to this rather than create a duplicate post). It's something I found really useful with Vid.me, and as I'm now making the move to focus on Twitch rather than YouTube, an importer would make life a LOT easier.
Also, I'm aware CommanderRoot has suggested a website that can do this, but I'd personally feel more comfortable having this as a feature actually on Twitch.
It would be very nice. I too would like to solely use Twitch.
Perhaps this could be a future feature for the new desktop app!
@Gwyrr The tool does all the connections / network work. The users Internet connection neither does the download from Youtube nor the upload to Twitch. The only thing you have to do is to tell the tool which videos you want to transfer and it does it, even if you close the browser.
@ Commander Root: As far as I understood your link, this tool is downloading a YT-video and uploading it to twitch. So this is going to get a lot of traffic on the users internet connection and can't be done when the user is switching off his computer. I think Otaku Showboat meant something else: the twitch servers shall directly connect to the youtube servers and transfer the videos (of course a check is neccessary that you don't import the videos of someone else). This should be done without the users computer or internet connection. This would be a great help for those with several hundred or even severals thousand (long) videos.
oh my god please. i just tried doing that and then i realized how long it would take with the amount i have. picture weeks.
There are already 3rd party tools which let you import Youtube videos to your Twitch account: https://youtube-to-twitch.rootonline.de/
