What Is Twitch?
Twitch is a streaming site that focuses on live video game broadcasting, however, anyone can stream anything on the platform. Users can broadcast content regarding crafts, sketching, comedy, music, speeches, educational lessons, and just about anything else related to their professional or recreational lives. On Twitch, you can see anything in real-time.
Steps To Create Clip On Twitch
We’ll go over how to create clip on Twitch of your favorite streams on the mobile and desktop Twitch apps in this guide. Read on!
Twitch Clips Information
When you create clip on Twitch, you’re basically recording the last few moments of the live stream in real-time. The time span of this clip varies depending on whether you’re using the mobile or desktop app. The default duration of the recorded footage on the mobile app is 30 seconds. On the other hand, the desktop application takes 90 seconds.
When the stream is playing, the Clip button and the function to clip it are visible and available. When you pause a stream, the button is hidden.
On the desktop, the 90-second footage can be cut down to 30 seconds minimum and 60 seconds maximum. While publishing, you cannot utilize more than a minute of the footage or the complete 90-second clip. Trimming is required in this situation.
On the go, you can publish the 30-second clip directly or share a link to it without cutting it. You can trim the clip before publishing or sharing it. However, trimming is not required.
Using The Mobile App
In order to create clip on Twitch, follow the given instructions.
- Open a Twitch stream and tap the video to reveal the Pause button. If you watch the stream in landscape mode, you can see the streamer’s details as well. Now, tap the Clip button from the top right corner of the live stream, which has a clapper board icon.
- A Create Clip dialogue box will appear. It will take a few seconds to create the video. To edit the clip, tap on the Preview and Edit option. If your footage does not require any cutting or editing, you may share it right away by selecting the Share clip option.
You can also copy the link to your clip directly from the Create Clip menu by pressing the Copy link option. Tap the Share via Whisper option if you wish to send the footage as a private message. Whispers on Twitch are effectively direct messages (DMs).
To give your clip a title, tap the Add a title text field. For all clips, titles are required. Place the yellow slider below the clip to contain the clip you want, and tap and move it. You can also increase or decrease the width of the slider by tapping the dotted sides, which affects the length of the cut clip.
If you can’t get the slider to a specific area of the video, you can adjust the video stream to fit the clipped portion into the slider’s width. When you’re finished, go to the top right corner of the screen and press the Done button.
The Edit Clip screen will appear again. If you haven’t already, give it a title. You may now also change the title. To submit your clip, tap the Publish button in the top right corner of the screen. Your video has been published. Yes! It was this easy to create clip on Twitch using the mobile app.
Using The Desktop App
- To create clip on Twitch, open Twitch on your PC and navigate to the live stream you want to record. Now, go to the down-right corner of the stream and click the identical clapper board icon, the Clip button.
- Your browser will be redirected. Cut your clip by dragging the blue vertical slider through the yellow scale. Place the slider over the section of the live stream that you wish to clip. To change the length (duration) of the clip, drag the dotted part on the sides of the blue slider.
After that, give your clip a title. Twitch requires clip titling, which aids the original streamer in gaining views. Furthermore, videos with relevant titles receive more views than videos with arbitrary titles. When you’re finished, click the Publish button to share your video.
Your video will now be published. Allow a few seconds to pass. When your live stream clip is released, you’ll see information about it, including the streamer’s name, your Twitch username, and a Follow button if you wish to follow the streamer whose live stream has been clipped by you.
You can share the clip immediately from this screen in a couple of ways. To rapidly transfer the clip’s link to your clipboard, click the Link icon below the clipped video or the Copy button with a two-slide icon. You may also copy the link by clicking the More option. In any case, the generated link will take you to the video.
Simply click the corresponding button to share the link on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. To get an embedding code that you can paste into any platform, click the Embed icon.
