Whether you’re a Twitch streamer or a Twitch viewer, you can easily make clips of epic and funny moments from any public stream. Doing so is both fast and easy, if you know what to do. So here’s how to make a Twitch clip. 

Everything you need to know about making Twitch clips

How to make Twitch clips on PC

Downloading Twitch clips is easy on PC. Go to any Twitch channel and choose any stream. This could be your own channel, the channel of a streamer you’re following, or even a new channel you find by using the platform’s search bar. 

In the top right corner of the stream, you’ll see a “clip” icon. It’s the furthest button to the side and looks like a Hollywood clapperboard.  You can also press Alt + X to quickly take a clip of any stream if you’d prefer to use a shortcut. 

Once the clip has been taken, you can trim the clip to make it the specific moments you’re looking to highlight, whether it’s an impressive play or a hilarious conversation. To publish the clip, you’ll need to add a title. This will make it available to the public. Alternatively, you can download the clip for yourself by pressing “export” or “download.” 

How to make Twitch clips on mobile

When downloading Twitch clips on mobile, the first step is the same as on PC. Go to a Twitch channel and choose the stream you want to make a clip of. This can be your own channel or anyone else’s public channel. 

Press the “clip” icon that’s at the top right corner of the screen. It looks like a movie clapperboard, just the same as it does on PC. When you find the exact moment you want to clip, press that button and the clip will be automatically generated. 

Trim the clip to highlight the exact moment you want to showcase. Then give it a title to make it public. After that, you can simply press “publish.” You can also press “share” if you want to distribute the clip yourself.
