Logitech-owned Streamlabs, the maker of the popular Streamlabs OBS app, today released a new tool called Crossclip that lets you take your favorite Twitch clips and turn them into social videos formatted for TikTok, YouTube, or Instagram.
The tool is available to anyone for free Crossclip website. It has some smart features that allow you to create a fast-to-share video that highlights both the streamer and the game they’re playing. For example, a TikTok video might look on top of a Streamer and their game cut below them in a vertical format.
I’ve been playing with Crossclip for a couple of days and I’ve found that it’s really easy to use. It can be a very useful tool that allows streaming devices to quickly turn a big moment of streaming into something they can share on other platforms – an important tool for expanding their audience beyond Twitch. Since anyone can use it on the basis of any clip, it also means that a casual viewer could make a video of a streamer that infects on their own social media, which the streamer himself may not want.
You can start making a video by uploading a link to the clip in Twitch or downloading the file from your computer. You will then be taken to the editing interface (shown in the image at the top of this post) where you can select different target areas from your Twitch clip to be displayed in a vertical video for TikTok, a widescreen video. YouTube or square for Instagram. There are also some advanced settings, such as various presets for your video, such as in picture-in-picture mode.
The app is free to use, but Streamlabs offers more editing options as a reward Crossclip Pro subscriptionwhich costs $ 4.99 per month or $ 49.99 per year. It includes the ability to remove the Crossclip watermark and outro that are baked into each video.
When you are satisfied with the clip, click the translate button. The free version compiles the video at 30 frames per second and 720p, but with a Pro subscription you can compile it at 60 frames per second and 1080p. When the video is complete, Crossclip will send you an email so you can download the video and share it on social media. And if you download the Crossclip app to iOS and sign in, the clips you create will appear in the app, and you can share them on social networks from there if you want.
Live editors will continue to work to expand on just what they can share on Twitch so they can be noticed, Crossclip can be a valuable tool for highlighting and sharing with the world more easily with just a few minutes of work.
