If there is ever a moment you want to remember during a stream, you can immortalize it using the “Clip” feature.
Clips are short videos featuring moments during a stream that have been selected by you or your viewers.
This feature is handy for keeping track of funny moments, amazing plays, rewinding a Twitch stream, and all sorts of memorable moments you wouldn’t want to forget. You can make clips of your own channel or of others’ channels.
In this guide, we will help you figure out how to make clips on Twitch so you can keep memories forever.
Creating a Twitch Clip on a Computer
Capturing a clip on Twitch is as easy as following the steps below.
Remember that clips can be as short as 5 seconds and as long as 1 minute. Plan accordingly!
On the stream you are watching, locate the “Clip” icon. Alternatively, you can use the commands:
- Alt + X on Windows
- Option + X on MacOS
Once you have clicked the icon or used a command, a new tab will open in your browser.
Once the Clip page opens, you will be given a field into which you can enter the clip’s title. You will also get a yellow bar which determines the segment to be included in the Clip.
Move the selection slider until you get the segment you prefer. When you’re happy, you can click “Publish.” And that’s it!
