Logitech-owned Streamlabs, maker of the popular livestreaming app Streamlabs OBS, is releasing a brand-new tool today called Crossclip that lets you take your preferred Twitch clips and turn them into social videos formatted for platforms like TikTok, YouTube, or Instagram.
The tool is totally free for anybody to utilize on the Crossclip website. It has some smart features that let you quickly create a shareable video that highlights both the game and the streamer theyre playing. A video for TikTok, for instance, may reveal the streamer on leading and their video game cropped underneath them in a vertical format.
Ive been playing around with Crossclip for a number of days, and Ive found it truly easy to use. It might be an extremely useful tool that lets streamers rapidly turn a huge minute on their stream into something they can share on other platforms– an important tool for broadening their audience beyond Twitch. Given that any person can use it based upon any clip, though, that likewise indicates a casual audience could make a video of a streamer that goes viral on their own social media, which the streamer themself may not desire.
Some presets layouts in Crossclip.
