It's common that Twitch VODs are generally hours-long. Although there are many Twitch VOD downloaders that will help to download Twitch videos, when it comes to long Twitch VODs, they perform differently. You will find some don't work at all or download videos at an unbearably slow speed. Given that, here are ways recommended for you to download long Twitch VODs successfully and quickly.

Download Twitch VODs Over 3 Hours with a Desktop Downloader

You may prefer an online Twitch downloader to download VODs from Twitch without any software installation. That's understandable but not the best option when you are looking to download Twitch VODs over 3 hours. Online Twitch VOD downloaders and desktop-based ones may work equally fast while downloading short videos. However, when you are going to download Twitch VODs over 3 hours, it's advisable to use a desktop app.


Desktop Twitch VOD downloaders outperform their online equivalents in mainly three aspects: reliability, stability, and speed. Unlike online ones, they won't bother you with ads and redirections and won't fail to work or be blocked suddenly. And given the fact that more advanced techniques are involved, Twitch VOD downloader programs are generally faster to download online videos.

That's why you should try the versatile video downloader for PC (& Mac) - EaseUS Video Downloader to download long Twitch VODs. Other than Twitch, it supports over 1000 video/audio sites and social networking sites.  That means you will be able to save Facebook videos to compute or download YouTube audio to a PC freely. What's more, considering the popularity of Twitch, EaseUS Video Downloader provides advanced features for it. That means you can:

  • Download Twitch videos in different formats and qualities
  • Convert Twitch videos to audio in MP3 or WAV
  • Download Twitch videos in bulk

To download Twitch VODs over 3 hours:

Step 1. Click to open EaseUS Video Downloader on your PC or Mac. Go to Twitch to find the highlight/past broadcast/upload/clip/collection you want to download. Copy and paste the link to the searching bar and click "Search."
