Live Stream Viewer Records: All-time highest viewership peaks on Twitch and YouTube

The world record for most watched Twitch stream is a coveted crown and has been held by the biggest names on the platform over the years. Here’s a look at the highest viewership in a single stream ever, on both Twitch and YouTube.

January 11, 2021 was a historic day for Twitch as Spanish streaming sensation David “TheGrefg” Cánovas Martínez broke the record for most concurrent viewers when he revealed his very own Fortnite skin.

He also previously held the record for a solo streamer, but his new record even beat live streams from major networks like ELEAGUE and PlayStation.

Of course, North American streamers still make up the majority of this list, but non-English language streams are growing fast on Twitch. Expect more streamers from other regions to compete for a place among the most watched streams of all time.

Twitch may yet be considered the home of video game live streaming, but YouTube has taken a huge step forward in this space.

  12. Willyrex: 500,000
  13. Vegeta777: 500,000
  14. Disrespect: 500,000

No new data has been collected on YouTube peak viewership since December 2021, so we’ll update these numbers when new data is released.

TheGrefg’s record-breaking numbers could be a stepping stone to further success, although the 2.4 million figure is unlikely to be surpassed any time soon.

When Ninja set the record by playing Fortnite with Drake and Travis Scott, it immediately expanded streaming space and paved the way for more records. As live streaming becomes more popular in general, we could see more streamers break the 1 million viewer mark.

We’ll keep you posted as new records are set and these rankings change, but TheGrefg has held its place at number one for a long time.
