But First, What Are Twitch Clips?
Clips allow Twitch viewers to quickly share the most unique moments from broadcasts while enabling broadcasters to grow their channels through social sharing! You can make these on Twitch Clips Manager.
Clips can be created by hovering over the video player and clicking the Clip icon. You may additionally also create a clip using the keyboard shortcut Alt + X on Windows or ⌥ + X on Mac.
After clicking the Clip icon or using the keyboard shortcut, a new clip creation page will be opened in a new tab for you. On this page, you can select the video segment you wish to include in the final published clip using the slider below the video. Give your clip a title and click the Publish button once you’re finished.
