How to Delete Clips on Twitch:
There are several ways of deleting the clips on twitch. The famous ways are mentioned below.
1 – Through the twitch website
Go to your channel page on Twitch. On the right side of the screen, you will see a list of videos that have been made public. Right-click on “Clips” and select “Delete.” You can also select all clips at once if you want to delete every clip that has been made public.
2 – Delete the video through its URL
Go to the video’s URL on your browser after clicking it from Twitch. Remove “-1” at the end of the video’s URL and make sure there is no space between dot (.) and number 1. Then refresh your browser or press the F5 button for this change to take effect. Now you are done deleting the video without having any impact on other videos.
3 – Delete a video through its ID
You can delete a video in Twitch by going into that specific video’s page and then clicking the icon above the chatbox.
This will open up all the data of that specific video including its ID. You just need to copy the number after “v=” which is highlighted in red in the image below and paste it on your browser along with “-rf” (without quotes) at the start of the URL. By doing so, you are forcing twitch to download this clip instead of showing it live or cached on their site. If you refresh your page, you will see no video is loaded because Twitch did not find its ID therefore cannot display anything for this clip
4 – Uploading a video through the Twitch website
You can upload your own clips to your channel using the twitch website. Click on the “Upload” button which is next to the profile picture. A new menu will open where you can search for video files on your computer and select one of them to upload it.
5 – Uploading a video while playing a game (Twitch app)
If you are streaming with the twitch application while playing games, you might have noticed that there is an option of uploading videos along with regular broadcasts on the twitch app. This way you can record clips while broadcasting on twitch without stopping the game or anything else. It records everything in the background then puts all recorded videos into a chosen folder (where twitch automatically saves these clips). To do this, just click on the upload icon while streaming. It will record all your clips automatically and once you stop the stream, it brings up a menu where you can select how much time you would like to keep these files before deleting them or uploading everything onto the twitch website.
- Step 1: Sign in to your Twitch account at http://www.twitch.tv
- Step 2: Click on the Settings cog in the top right corner of your screen
- Step 3: Select “Channel & Videos” from the sidebar, then click “Backup”
