Clips FAQ

Clips are 15 to 60 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 and Verified Channels. Clip creation is available to a channel’s Channel Editors and Viewers above a specified Rank that the streamer chooses. 

Configuring Your Channel For Clips ( Partner and Verified )

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

  3. On the Clips dashboard setting, choose to allow regular Viewers to Clip by selecting the toggle.
    Optionally: Choose a minimum channel Rank that they must be to clip.
    Be sure to save these settings.
    NOTE: Access to Viewers is available on Desktop Web. On Mobile App, Channel Editors can clip.

Making A Clip

If you are eligible to clip the channel (i.e. you are the Partnered or Verified channel owner, you are a channel editor, or you are a viewer over a particular rank, as configured by the channel owner), you will find the Clip button on the Player window.

NOTE: For a limited time, new clip experience button will be accessible side-by-side with the legacy experience. The new clip preview experience supports trimming and setting the clip title before publishing. The legacy experience automatically publishes a 30-second clip with the channel title as the clip title.
