Videos, uploading, and Twitch
It is easy to upload a video from your local storage to your Twitch channel. Whenever your viewers visit your channel and see that you are offline, these videos will keep them engaged.

You can only upload a video which is either an MP4, and MOV, an AVI, or an FLV file. Also, it should be h264 codes with AAC audio. The video quality should be up to 1080p and the bitrate should be up to 10Mbps. The video’s maximum size should not be more than 20 GB. Also, you cannot upload more than 5 videos at a time and not more than 100 videos in a day.
