Why Should I Delete Twitch Clips?

There are various reasons why streamers delete their Twitch clips. While they’re a part of the history of your channel and are great short-form content, they can sometimes be flagged by other users. Saved content that is inappropriate, offensive, and against Twitch’s Terms of Service (TOS) can easily harm your channel and potentially get you banned.

If you have some clips that have potential copyright issues, it’s best to delete them as soon as possible before claims are made to that content. This is also true for clips that violate DMCA rules.

Clips on Twitch can be created by you, a streamer, or your public viewers or subscribers. This can be done by clicking the clip icon on the video player while viewing a stream. Alternatively, you can press Alt + X on Windows and Command + X on Mac to create a clip via the keyboard.

Then, on the clip creation window, you can select which part of the video segment you want to include in the final version of the clip. After giving it a title, you can publish it by clicking the Publish icon.


How to Change Who Can Create Clips on Your Channel

  1. Select your Profile Avatar on the top-right portion of the screen and select Creator Dashboard.
  2. Go to Settings > Stream and navigate to the Clip Settings section.
  3. Here, you can set the Clips feature to Followers-only or Subscriber-only, depending on what helps your channel.
  4. If you want to disable the Clips feature completely, set the Enable Clips slider to Off.
