Well let's be able to upload videos on twitch because if people just stream everyday it will be boring. So we want to be able to upload videos to our twitch channel's.
To upload a video, click the Upload button on the right above the video list in the Video Producer and select the file you’d like to upload from the window that opens. For access to uploads, you must be an Affiliate or Partner.
same, why isn't there an option to uploaded recorded video anymore?
same here, cannot upload my recorded videos, please help us!
Same with me, I don't have an option to upload my video. Can someone help?
hi guys... when i enter in the video managment, justr doesnt appear any drag and drop option... did i make something wrong?
I cannot upload videos
put upload video back
I'm with you. I can't upload video either!
Had a frustrating experience as I keep getting hits and tips to add video/clips. I incorrectly assumed I could upload a video to achieve this, but I can't since I'm not affiliate status yet. Some sort of indication on the Upload video page would be nice. I eventually found the documentation about affiliate status and uploading in an unrelated document, but I had to dig to find it.
Also there is a lot of "how-to" videos and docs on Twitch around uploading that is now out of date. Please update for better user experience, please.
I cant upload videos..i click on video producer..i don't see that 'up arrow' button i used to see when i wanted to upload a video..is there a limit to upload videos? i already got like 77 videos..i keep on refreshing thinking its my net issue but i don't think it is..is that option moved somewhere?
very bad move, its kinda useless for me now as creator
same here. missing this feature, loved uploading to my youtube and my twitch for those who dont use YouTube, why must we be forced to premiere? why? literally no logical reason twitch just doesnt care what we want.
There's absolutely nothing new about Twitch behaving that way. The original owners were doing that as far back as the PS3 webcam debacle that gave them the flimsy excuse they'd been seeking to eliminate password-protected private streams. Still trying to figure out when they removed/broke the Private Channel feature that prevented you from appearing in the public directory but still sent notifications to your Followers. Then they sold out to Amazon and they cranked that behavior to 11 even before the ink had dried.
I'm looking into alternate platforms. Sad, I thought I had found my alternative to YouTube.
Mandatory premieres is one of the most user-unfriendly ideas I've ever encountered. Sad to see Twitch turn to "I will play god and force my crap down your throat even though I know users will hate it, because I'm a big corp and I got investors now" mentality.
I stopped uploading AND streaming as a result of that bullshit premiere function (I like uploading highlight reels after streams and small funny "behind the scenes" snippets, but now every little joke video is turned into some sort of pompous statement which only confuses the viewers ("I thought you were live man", "what's that weird countdown?" "you put a 5 sec countdown on a 10 sec video? wtf man?"). I'm staying on Youtube for now and streaming there because it's really ridiculous.

This feature persisting will force everyone to upload to YouTube instead. Nobody wants to set up a clip as an event, and if they do they are not the majority of the populace. Even still, you should never uproot the functionality of a core background function for your users. Who thought that this was a good idea?
I couldn't agree with this more. To me, uploads are a tool for driving more viewers from Twitch and my other social media platforms to my live content- to give them a preview of what my streams are all about.
Forcing users to premiere videos brings their core community into the premiere and causes the view count for the video itself across all platforms to drop, much lessening the chance of bringing someone new to Twitch or to that particular person's channel.
Premieres are a neat idea, but I'm super bummed out that they are not optional.
I agree with all the comments here, esp. MyOhMyke's complete explanation of confusion and frustration. Spoonee's shorter one was borne of a result I witnessed. Make it optional and we're gravy.

So I guess I keep my Twitch Clips mashups on YouTube and not share them on Twitch? This seems weird.
I think this is ridiculous to force the caster to premier the video before uploading it. It hurts not only the broadcaster but confuses the viewer as well into thinking the broadcaster is live.
I don't get why a simple upload has been complicated with all these extra steps and being forced to make it a live event. Viewers are still trying to wrap their heads around the Vodcast feature and now uploads are now premiers that now have to be shown live as well. The purpose of having uploads was to put short content that streamers can put up, for instance, combining clips from a particular playthrough of a game and making a best of video for viewers to watch at their convenience.Why should that small timed video be forced to premier as a live feed? It makes no sense. I can see using a premier feature if a streamer wants to introduce a new game to play on the channel or unveiling new props/art/emotes, but to use it as you upload option is a no. Why fix something that wasn't broken to begin with? There's too many things to go through just to upload so why complicate the process? It's okay to shorten the menu on the dashboard to Videos but when you select that Videos tab it should have the sub categories of uploads/past broadcasts/highlights in it. Something like this can really drive streamers to use other platforms for their content. I'm sure there are those out there like me who want to keep everything on one platform to make it easier for the viewers to find content. Please bring back the old way and please stop trying to complicate something that didn't need adjusting to begin with.
