Twitch Clips are a great way to share your favorite moments with your favorite Twitch streamers. But how do you download them? Luckily, it’s easy! While many services claim to give high-quality downloads, the safest way to download a clip that is not from your own stream is to play the clip and record your screen using OBS.
If you want to learn how to take your own clip, you can read our full guide on how to clip on twitch covering PC and mobile.
The process is straightforward if the clip is from your own personal stream. Start by finding the clip you want to download. You can do this by going to the Twitch website and navigating to the “Clips” section. Alternatively, you can find clips directly on individual streamer’s pages. Once you’ve found the clip you want, simply click on it to open it up.
Next, look for the “Download” button underneath the clip. This button will usually be available in the bottom-right corner. Once you’ve found it, simply click on it and select a save location on your computer. The clip will then begin downloading automatically. And that’s all there is to it! Now you can enjoy your favorite Twitch moments offline, anytime you want.
Here’s a step-by-step guide with screenshots of the process:
How to Use a Free Twitch Clip Downloader
To download a Twitch clip to your computer you must first make sure it is saved to your Twitch account. After you have selected the clip URL, use the free downloader Clipr. Log onto the site and do the following:
Copy the clip link (see above for details on how) and paste it into the provided space.
Press the “Get Download Link” button. The page will refresh and show you a “Click to Download” button. After clicking it, the clip will download to your computer (most likely to your Downloads file).
You can also use Clip Ninja to download your clips. It works in a very similar method to Clipr.
How to Download Twitch Clips in High Resolution
While Clipr and other free programs allow you to quickly and easily download the clips you love, you won’t have any say in their resolution. To download clips in a higher resolution, you will need to download them directly from your browser. This process will work with both Google Chrome and Firefox using the browser’s inspect tool.
To start off this process, find the clip you want to download on Twitch, then complete the following steps:
Click the settings icon in the lower right-hand corner of the video screen. You will be able to choose from one of 4 different resolutions, the highest quality being 1080p.
Right click on the video screen to pull up the menu, then select the “Inspect” option.
Use the search feature on the inspect menu to search “.mp4” to locate the video file. You may have to press CNTL-F to access the search menu.
Double-click on the link in order to copy it by using the command CNTL-C (on PC) or COMMAND-C (on Mac). You can also right click and choose “Copy” from the available options.
Open a new tab on your browser and paste the code into the address bar at the top. This action should automatically create a download which you will see at the bottom left-hand corner of your screen (if using Chrome) or you can find it in your Downloads folder. You can then move the file to any location on your computer.
How to Encourage Your Viewers to Share Clips
Viewers can also help out their favorite streamers by sharing high-quality clips with their friends and family. Your viewers will likely have friends who enjoy the same sort of content they do. Sharing clips is an excellent way for them to entice others to join them.
