How to Create Twitch VOD Clips

Twitch is a popular streaming platform where you can watch live games and a variety of other content. It also has a Video on Demand system where you can find past broadcasts and highlights, called VOD Clips. Clips can be made by both viewers and streamers and are a great way to remember and share some of the best moments from a stream.

As a streamer, it’s important to make sure that your audience can easily find and access your VOD clips on YouTube. If you don’t do this, it can be hard to grow your YouTube following because a lot of people who enjoy watching your streams on Twitch may not also be on YouTube.

To get started with creating a VOD clip, you’ll need to log in to your Twitch VOD Clips account and navigate to the video you want to create a Clip of. Then, click on the clip icon (it looks like a film production slate) to open the Clip creation page.

Once you’ve opened the Clip page, you can start to add all of the information for your VOD clip. First, you’ll need to give it a title. This should be something that catches the viewer’s attention and tells them what this clip is about. If you’re creating a clip about a specific part of your gameplay, such as a new weapon or skill, it can help to include a picture of the item in your title.

Next, you’ll need to choose whether to have your clip be public or private. This is important because some streamers may not want their videos to be shared around, especially if they’re dealing with DMCA claims. If you’re worried about this, you can always opt to have your Clips be private so that only you have access to them.

Lastly, you’ll need to decide if you want to include music in your Clip. While this can be a good way to add some extra flair and make your video more engaging, it’s important to note that using unlicensed music in your Clips could lead to your VODs and Highlights being muted or deleted by Twitch’s automated content moderation system. This can happen even if the music is used in small amounts and not blatantly visible in your Clips, so it’s best to stick with only licensed music.

VOD clips can be a great tool for streamers to use to engage with their audience and grow their channel’s following, but they need to be properly optimized for YouTube in order to be discovered by a larger audience. By making a few simple changes, you can make your VOD clips more engaging and appealing to YouTube users.
