Clips are a great way to capture your best moments on stream. Adding a command to your chat which triggers a clip on Twitch is a great way to get more amazing clips.

In this tutorial we are going to break down how you can set up a clip command using Streamlabs cloudbot.

How To Set Up !Clip Command On Cloudbot

To set up the clip command on Twitch you will need to use a third party bot. In this tutorial we will be using the Streamlabs Cloudbot.

Step 1 – Make Cloudbot A Mod In Your Channel

If you have not already modded the Streamlabs cloud bot in your channel you will need to do this first. This allows the bot to interact and post in your chat. To do this open up your Twitch channel and navigate to Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.

In the chat box type /mod Streamlabs

This will allow the Streamlabs cloud bot to interact with your chat meaning you can use commands.

Step 2 – Add A Custom Command In Streamlabs Cloudbot

Go to and ensure you are logged in with your Twitch account. Navigate to Cloudbot on the left hand side and ensure that Cloudbot is turned on.

Now that Cloudbot is on we can create a custom command. To do this go to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.

We can now create our command inside the custom command editor. There is a few different options to fill in.

Command – This is what our viewers will type in to activate the command. For clip we recommend using !clip.

Response – In this section we need to paste some API code so that we can clip on our channel. Copy the text below and the get your API link by clicking here. This will bring you to this screen.

In the streamlabs chatbot section copy the the link. Do not copy the $readapi( at the start of the link. You only need the actual link.

Copy the code below and replace “YOUR LINK HERE” with the link.

{readapi.YOUR LINK HERE}

Your finished response should look like the below:

Reply In – This is okay to leave as Chat

Permission – Everyone. Everyone watching your stream should be able to use this command to create clips.

You may also want to go into the advanced setting section and add a “User Cooldown”. This will stop the same user spamming the command over and over again in chat. I recommend setting this to 60 seconds.

Click “Confirm” to save your command.

Step 3 – Test The !Clip Command

You can now test to see if your command is working correctly in chat. Head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !clip command. When set up correctly it will create a clip on your channel

Wrapping Up

Now your viewers can easily create clips on your channel using the Streamlabs Cloudbot.
