On Streamlabs Video Editor, it's possible to upload media to your project three different ways;
- Upload it directly from your computer
- Upload it from a mobile device using a QR code
- Import it from an external URL
Let's focus on #3: Import from URL.
Importing media from a URL is an incredibly fast way to get your content from platforms like Twitch or YouTube directly into Streamlabs Video Editor, where you can edit it and re-publish. The full list of supported platforms are:
- Google Drive
Additionally, any direct URL to a video source will work as well.
Before you upload a video with this, make sure that the URL is pointing directly to the video source (not a full web page that happens to also contain a video). If you take a look at the URL, you can tell it's formatted correctly if it matches the following examples for each platform.
There are 3 URL formats that will work for Twitch. Your links should look like one of these:
When uploading from Google Drive, make sure the file's viewing permissions have been set to "Public" or "accessible without authentication" via link.
