How to edit your Twitch streams without downloading them
In this article, we are going to discuss Flixier’s Twitch Integration and how you can take full advantage of it. We also made a video on the same topic that you can watch below:
This new integration allows you to take your Twitch VODs, which are recordings of your past live streams and import them into your Flixier library straight from the Twitch servers, without having to download anything to your computer. This essentially makes it so that your stream footage is ready to be edited in a matter of minutes.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering what Flixier is and why you should use it to edit your Twitch streams, here's a quick rundown: Flixier is a free video editor that runs entirely in your web browser. That means you can use it on any device, whether it’s a gaming laptop, a Mac or a budget Chromebook. Why should you use Flixier instead of a traditional video editing program? Because we know how annoying it is to wait around for large downloads and long render queues, we designed Flixier in order to save you as much time as possible! Our cloud-powered rendering technology will have any project finalized and ready for you to publish in 3 minutes or less, no matter what computer you’re using for editing or how long your project is!
Before you do that, however, you need to link your Twitch and Flixier accounts together.
Linking your Twitch and Flixier accounts
To link your accounts, go to your Flixier dashboard and click on Account Settings.
Then, go to the Connected Apps tab and scroll down until you see the field that says Twitch.
Click on Connect to Twitch, then log into your Twitch account. When asked to grant Flixier authorization, simply click on Authorize.
Your Flixier and Twitch accounts should now be successfully linked.
Importing and Editing your Twitch streams
Now you can actually import your VODs into your library and start editing them. To do so, click on the Import button, then select Twitch.
You’ll see a list of your Twitch VODs, which you can sort by how recent they are, trending status or views.
Select the ones you want to work on and click on Save and then Import All.
NOTE: If a VOD is longer than an hour, Flixier will automatically split it into one hour segments and save them all in a folder with the same name as the original video.
Exporting your streams to YouTube
Once your footage has been imported, you can edit it just like you would any other video. You can cut it, trim it, add transitions and take advantage of our library of free, professionally made motion graphics.
After you finish editing your video, you can use our export menu to publish it directly to YouTube. If you choose to do so, you’ll notice that Flixier allows you not only to choose the video title and description but also change the thumbnail or schedule a delayed launch.
We hope this article managed to shed some light on how our new Twitch integration works and how it can benefit you as a streamer and content creator.
