As it turns out, downloading Twitch clips is still super easy even if there isn't a simple download button. There are quite a few ways to download clips from Twitch, which gives you options on how you want to approach it. Although we find the easiest way is to use Google Chrome or Firefox, you're also welcome to use a few outside resources to download your favorite clip as well.

Downloading Twitch clips with Clipr

To download clips from Twitch, most people will use a third-party website. Clipr a popular website is made specifically to pull Twitch videos, so it’s definitely the easiest to use.

Step 1: Find the clip you'd like to download on Twitch. You can choose clips from your own collection or clips publicly shared by your favorite streamer. In the lower right-hand corner of the video, click the Share button. Copy the Clip Link.

Downloading Twitch clips with 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 Firefox. This used to work on Chrome as well, but appears to no longer function on that browser. 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.

Step 4: Open another window, paste the link, and delete any extra code you may have copied on accident. This should trigger the clip to automatically start downloading. Your downloaded clip will appear in your downloads folder and can be moved anywhere you need.

The best iPhone emulators
A collage of the delta emulator.

The market for iPhone games has become so wide and diverse that it can realistically compete with most console and PC offerings. Where we once only got cheap time-wasters, we now have complete experiences that don't feel any less impressive than what the competition offers. In fact, a lot of games made for consoles are appearing on the iPhone now that it is becoming so powerful. However, older games have paradoxically been mostly absent from the app store. That all could be about to change as emulation is now allowed on iPhone, though with some caveats that any retro fan should know about before getting too excited to play all your favorite NES games on your phone. Here's what's up with iPhone emulators, as well as our picks for a few of the best ones you can get right now.
What you need to know about emulation on iPhone
Emulators on iPhone, as well as emulation in general, are in a strange legal gray zone. Previously, the only way to get an emulator on your iPhone was through some workarounds that generally involved jailbreaking your phone, That differs from Android, which has enjoyed native emulators for years. In 2024, Apple updated its App Store guidelines to allow for emulators on its store, but with some important restrictions.

Here's the exact wording: "Apps may offer certain software that is not embedded in the binary, specifically HTML5 mini apps and mini games, streaming games, chatbots, and plug-ins. Additionally, retro game console emulator apps can offer to download games. You are responsible for all such software offered in your app, including ensuring that such software complies with these guidelines and all applicable laws. Software that does not comply with one or more guidelines will lead to the rejection of your app. You must also ensure that the software adheres to the additional rules that follow in 4.7.1 and 4.7.5. These additional rules are important to preserve the experience that App Store customers expect, and to help ensure user safety."

The best weapons in Fallout 4 and where to find them
People standing outside Nuka World.

Bethesda titles are massive, with tons of loot to acquire. From the fantasy series of Elder Scrolls VI, to the sci-fi world of the future in Starfield, the one thing they share is a wide range of weapons. In the wastelands of Fallout 4, and the new Fallout TV show, the weapons (and their cool names) are a major perk. Some weapons might give you an edge, but others feel as if they’re just for show.

While more common weapons like the submachine gun, hunting rifle, or powerful Gauss rifle will serve you well in the wasteland (especially if you add a weapon mod), there are a few rare weapons in the game that you'll want to get your hands on. We've created a guide that covers some of the best weapons in Fallout 4, from high-powered rifles to ghoul-slamming melee weapons, as well as how their performance might affect your gameplay for the better.
