Clips FAQ

Clips are 5 to 300 second videos captured from your stream that you can use to replay your best, most memorable moments while live streaming on Mixer. This feature is currently in beta and available to Mixer Partners, Verified Channels, and selected non-Partnered channels. Clip creation is available to a channel’s Channel Editors and Viewers above a specified Rank that the streamer chooses. 

Clips Early Access

Non-Partner channels can request early access to clips at https://mixer.com/contact. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up. Sign-ups may temporarily be paused depending on interest and load. If you are approved, Clips will be added to your channel within 2 business days. The ability to clip will not be removed from your channel. We look forward to seeing what you do with clips! Please connect with us on the Mixer Community Discord, #feedback-clips channel: https://discord.gg/mixer.

Configuring Your Channel For Clips

  1. Make sure the setting for “Keep recordings of my streams” is enabled in your Broadcast dashboard settings.

Bots/Tools

Here are some streamer tools that support calling the Mixer Clips API:

These bots can be configured to create clips up to 300 seconds long.

One suggestion is to create chat commands that create clips of varying lengths (e.g. !clip10, !clip30, 1clip60).

Can I download my Clips? 

Clips can be downloaded in mobile app and on desktop.

On desktop, open the clip, then click the Save icon.
