If you are a Twitch streamer, you know how difficult discoverability can be. The good news is that if you have been live streaming for a while, you probably have quite a few clips from your streams that are just sitting on your computer. If you put in the effort to record those clips, all they need is a little editing! Editing these videos can make them more exciting, allowing you to post them on additional platforms like YouTube.
In this article, we'll talk about the various ways you can edit your Twitch clips for use on other platforms like YouTube. Streamlabs has several tools like Video Editor, Highlighter, and Cross Clip to streamline the process. Today, we'll give a brief overview of these softwares and how to use them to create even more content for your audience.
Why Should You Post Clips to Other Platforms?
You may think your Twitch videos are only good on that one platform, but you can actually download them and post them elsewhere! Posting your favorite VODs and clips on YouTube or Facebook can be beneficial for a number of reasons.
First of all, it helps expand the reach of your videos to audiences who aren't currently on Twitch. If you don't have a large following on one platform, crossposting to multiple may help give your content more views.
Secondly, it creates an opportunity for you to expand the variety of content you put out. A different video format may encourage more engagement and show others what content they can expect from you and your channel.
Finally, it may let you monetize your videos more easily! When you stream on Twitch, you can monetize via subscribers, bits, and tips, but you can also monetize via ads on your videos with enough views.
