Clips are a feature on Twitch that let you cut and capture segments of the live stream in the moment (up to 60 seconds). See how to use clips on Twitch for more details. The following are some fun moments captured from this stream:


Links not working on Twitch? It’s most likely because Twitch will only save my stream recordings for about 60 days. Use the YouTube link at the top of this page instead.

The timestamps link to the video on Twitch at that point in the recording. If you’d like the YouTube link above will have similar timestamps and link to those same points in the recording as well.
