When you see something memorable on a stream, click the Clip button. By default, it grabs the video from about 25 seconds before and five seconds after you click the Clips button.
A new tab will open, and the video will be ready for replay in just a few seconds. You can pause and restart the Clip or let it play on a loop.
Give your Clip a custom name, if you would like. Otherwise, the name of the clip will be generated from the title of the broadcast. Make sure to press “Save’ to make sure your changes are stored.
Did you not get the exact right timing? No problem, because with the Clips Trimming feature, you can just hit the edit button to trim down to as few as ten seconds or extend the length to make your clip up to sixty seconds long. Plus, while you are editing, you will see the past ninety seconds of the stream or video, taking some of the guesswork out of when to make your clip.
If you are done making edits to the clip, press the “publish” button to save your changes and then you will be taken to the viewing page.
Click the share buttons to copy the link or share directly to a variety of social networks. Once you have shared the video, your friends will be able to watch the recorded stream from the point where the Clip ends or jump right into the broadcast and join you in chat.
To remove a Clip you have created, click the gear icon on any Clip viewing page and click on Remove Clip.
On the Clip page, your Twitch ID is at the top, and under the video is the Broadcaster’s name, the game they were playing, and the title of their stream.
Clips are also integrated with Chat, Channel Feed, and Pulse so that when you share a Clip, the URL is displayed as a thumbnail preview with additional info about the Clip. You can also create Clips with a keyboard shortcut (Alt+X on PC/Option+X on Mac).
