Twitch turned off non-partnered channels' "Store past broadcasts" and didnt tell us
When I used to stream to twitch (late 2019/early 2020), it would save my past broadcasts for a few days then delete them, which was expected.
However, at some point, Twitch decided to switch off the "Store past broadcasts" setting on non-partnered/non-verified twitch accounts and they apparently never told anyone?
I just streamed 4 hours of content which I was expecting to see in my past broadcasts so I could clip content immediately after my stream finished. However, to my surprise, I found NO past broadcasts present on my channel. So my content is essentially gone forever.
I am very curious as to what was the cause behind twitch deciding to shadily turn off this setting as the default selection without telling their users and streamers?
I see the option to "Store past broadcast" but it doesn't work. They should at least disable the option and give a message explaining what we need to do to enable it.
Go to "Creator Dashboard" > Preferences > Channel.
Ensure that "Store past broadcasts" is checked.
At some point Twitch turned this off on my account without notifying me, so I dont doubt it happened to others.
Pass Several Broadcast my channel has not saved the vod. It had saved the first 2 broadcast i have done then deleted them and will not save anymore??
