How to edit your Twitch streams without downloading them

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: 

The Flixier dashboard with the Account Settings highlighted.

Then, go to the Connected Apps tab and scroll down until you see the field that says Twitch. 

The Connected Apps tab within the Account Settings menu

Click on Connect to Twitch, then log into your Twitch account. When asked to grant Flixier authorization, simply click on Authorize.

The Twitch permissions pop-up

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. 

Flixier Import menu with the Twitch option highlighted

You’ll see a list of your Twitch VODs, which you can sort by how recent they are, trending status or views.   

The toggle allowing you to sort by Time, Trending 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.


After your Twitch streams have been successfully imported to Flixier, you're free to edit them however you see fit. You can get rid of unwanted parts, add transitions to make them look more dynamic and even overlay motion titles, static text or Like, Share and Subscribe animations for your YouTube viewers. Additionally, you can also cut out the most exciting parts and crop the videos down to share them as YouTube Shorts or post them on TikTok in order to reach as many people as possible. Don't make the mistake of ignoring these platforms just because they're built around short form content! Their algorithms are built around maximizing reach and having a TikTok go viral can make tens of thousands of people aware of your Twitch channel with just a few seconds of content! 


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.

The Flixier export options

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. 

Closing Words

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.
