Video On Demand (VoD)

A Video on Demand (VoD) is a recording of a previous stream that is automatically saved on Mixer.

VoD Viewing:

  • Anyone can view your VoDs from your channel page (as soon as your stream ends and the VoD finishes processing).

VoD management:

  • You can download, delete, or check the processing status of your VoDs from your VoD management page.

VoD FAQ: Why can't I watch my VoD? 

  • VoD recording must be enabled with the "Keep recordings [VoDs] of my streams" option on your manage channel page before your stream starts in order for the VoD to be saved (VoD recording is disabled by default).
  • VoDs with a blue thumbnail indicate that they are still processing (and will become available as soon as processing is done).
  • VoDs shorter than 5 minutes are not saved.

VoD FAQ: How long do VoD stay on the site?

  • VoDs are retained for 14 days for Regular and Pro users, and for 90 days for Partners users.
  • Some channels (such as official esports and event channels) have a longer retention limit due to business reasons.

If your VoD didn’t save, or can't be viewed after it's finished processing, please contact us and we’ll help you out.
