Downloading Twitch clips with Google Chrome or Firefox

Although using an outside source is nice, sometimes it’s better to download the clip directly from the browser. This will allow you to select the resolution you want to download and gives you more control over what you’re downloading to your computer. It’s a surefire way to get the resolution you want for the clip you love.

Downloading Twitch clips directly from the browser is pretty simple. However, for the easiest method to download clips, you’ll want to be sure to be using either Firefox or Google Chrome. You’ll need to use the Inspect tool, but once you do that, the download process is very easy.

Step 1: Once you have the clip you want open, set the quality of the video you want to download. Once you find what resolution works best for you, pause the clip. Then, right-click on the video and hit Inspect.

Step 2: Scroll up a little bit until you see a line that has a link that reads “https://clips-media-assets2…” and ends with “.mp4” – you can copy and paste this line to search for it within the Inspect elements. It may look a little different with different videos, but the beginning of the link will be the same across the board.

Step 3: Double-click on this to get a chance to copy it. Once the item is highlighted, you can select either Control + C if on PC, Command + C on Mac, or right-click and select Copy.

While those moves were great, what replaces them is even better, and you will likely forget all about those old ones in a matter of hours. Ultrahand in particular is essentially limitless in what you can do with it. Building contraptions, most often vehicles, is easy and intuitive. Still, sometimes you know what you want to build and would rather skip the process of, you know, building it. For that, the game offers you Autobuild.

However, like so many things in Tears of the Kingdom, you have to seek it out in order to utilize it, and the game is perfectly fine with you never stumbling upon it.
