YouTube is testing out a new feature called Clips which allows users to create clips out of other creators’ live streams and VODs. Clips let viewers and creators take footage from a live stream which is between 5 to 60 seconds in length to share with other people.


YouTube Gives Insights On New Verification Process For Creators

A clip has its own associated URL and links back to the creator’s channel. It’s more convenient to share a 15-second clip than a 3+ hour live stream, for example. An experimental version of the Clips feature is in testing to be rolling out soon.

YouTube right now is testing the Clips feature with a set of creators while taking feedback to guide it further to the development of the feature. Users can create Clips during a live stream and from the video on demand (VOD) that is uploaded afterward. You can see a clip icon under the video which is displayed like a pair of scissors if you are watching content from one of the channels that are included in the test group. Click on the clip icon to select a part of the video you want to share with others. Add a title and click ‘Share Clip’ then YouTube will create a URL for you to share.

Both the viewers and the creators can create and share the clips on social media channels. The clips are stored in a dedicated tab that has all the clips created by the user across YouTube. For more information about the Clips, you can watch the video below.
