Part 1. How to Download Twitch Clips

Twitch clips are saved video segments of an online streamer's video broadcast. Clips range from the start of a live stream, the best moments of a live stream, highlights from gameplay videos or game matches, or entire playthroughs from games like Minecraft and League of Legends.

If you regularly watch streams on your favorite channels, downloading clips for personal viewing will come in handy when you cannot watch live due to other obligations.

You can download clips in many ways, such as using the Clip option on your favorite channel's video player with the Twitch desktop app or using third-party software like Clipr.

Clipr is an app that allows users to download clips of their favorite broadcasters on Twitch. Clipr has developed the process of downloading clips into a simple two-step process.

Part 3. The Difference Between Clips and Videos

Clips are usually shorter and smaller than a full Twitch video that is streamed live. The average clip is five to sixty seconds long, but videos can be hours long. You might want to download clips if you want something short and quick or if you're trying to save your data for later use. Videos require more bandwidth and memory, so saving them is difficult.

Most people will also only watch clips of their favorite streamers and not the entire video. Watching clips doesn't require as much attention span as watching a full video, so it's perfect for those who don't have the time to sit through an hour-long broadcast.

Downloading clips is simple and a relatively fast process. But if you want to know how to download videos, check out this article: How to Download a Twitch Video?
