How does Twitch work ?

Twitch is an online streaming platform where users can stream live game videos, music, TV shows and other content. Users can also watch other users' live broadcasts and chat with them using real-time comments. Comments are posted live during the broadcast, allowing users to chat with each other and the live broadcaster.

The duration of the broadcasts varies but is on average several hours.
Hence the interest in selecting extracts to make clips.

Before starting, you must first get the video of the live event.

There are several ways to download a video from TwitchHere are some options:

  1. Use a third-party video uploader, such as Twitch Leecher or 4k Video Downloader
    These programs allow you to copy the URL of the Twitch video you want to download and paste it into the program to start the download.

  2. Use an online Twitch video download service, such as

  3. Use a browser with download extensions to download the videos. There are extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Edge...

It is important to note that under the terms of use of TwitchIf you are a Twitch user, you may not upload or distribute videos without written permission from Twitch. It is therefore important to ensure that you have the appropriate authorization before uploading or streaming videos from Twitch.

Add subtitles directly on Twitch

As on Youtube for example, it is possible to add subtitles directly on Twitch.

Here are some options:

  1. Use a browser extension such as "Closed Captions for Twitch" to add subtitles to the video. This extension uses speech recognition to generate subtitles in real time.

  2. If you're broadcasting on Twitch yourself, you can use tools built into the streaming software to add subtitles to your live broadcast. For example, OBS Studio has a live subtitle plugin called "StreamLabs OBS" that allows you to create and add subtitles to your live broadcast.

It is important to note that in order for subtitles to be displayed properly, users must have subtitles enabled on their browser or Twitch app.
It should also be noted that the accuracy of live subtitles is not always reliable. The context of the live broadcast is not always conducive to a subtitling quality. Our advice is to add subtitles on clips, to have control over the final rendering.
And this is where Capté !
