Clipping streams off Twitch is the best way to re-watch your favorite streamers’ moments. Moreover, clipping and saving clips from Twitch further ensures that you can share it with your friends, especially the “no one would believe if they didn’t see it” moment, be it the insane COD kill or some insane clutch. Twitch clips also make for a perfect reel, whether a sick headshot or a funny moment.
Meanwhile, we’re sure you’ve heard your favorite streamer yell out ‘clip that’; however, let’s take a look at how to clip Twitch streams and save and download these videos to your PC. The process is relatively simple and not too hard to follow; with that being said, let’s get to it.
How to clip and save Twitch Streams
To capture a Twitch moment, the best and most feasible way to clip a Twitch stream is to use Twitch’s clipping tool. To use the tool, users can click on the “clip icon” at the bottom right of the stream. Furthermore, if you don’t feel like using the mouse, you can also press “alt + x” to clip the stream. Meanwhile, be mindful that Twitch only allows users to save 60 seconds of clips via the default clipping tool.
After clicking on the ‘clapperboard button’ or pressing “alt + x,” Twitch takes you to a new page where you can choose which 60 seconds of the video you’d like to save. Oh, and in case you’re wondering if this lets you save the clipped Twitch stream directly to your PC, it does not.
Meanwhile, for the lazy ones, here are the simplified steps
- Click on the clapperboard button in the bottom right.
- On the next screen, use the slider to adjust the length of the video.
- Enter the title and click on publish.

- Now, in the pop-up menu, click on edit and select the length of the clip.

Now for the part that makes sure the clipped Twitch stream moments don’t get deleted from Twitch. To elaborate, the recent growth of DMCAs can sometimes force a streamer to delete a particular stream from their channel. Which further deletes any video or clip associated with the stream from the platform. Turns out, a sure shot way to make sure those moments stay on forever and can be watched anytime is to clip and download Twitch Streams off the platform.
