Mixer is growing by the day, after securing exclusive deals with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, but not everybody will know to clip their favorite streamers on the new platform. 

Microsoft’s streaming alternative to Twitch has a lot of new eyes on it, after securing moves for two of the gaming world’s most popular live streamers.

Ninja announced he would be making the move back in August and shroud also decided to switch over on October 24, claiming that he prefers the community vibe on the new platform already.

With so many of their viewers presumably making the transition with them, there’s no doubt that the differences between the platforms will take some getting used to. One those features, of course, is clipping.

How to clip on Mixer

Previously, only Partnered streamers on Mixer had the ability to create their own clips. But that all changed on November 19, when Mixer announced in an update that they were giving Partnered streamers the option to allow viewers to clip.

Partners will be able to grant all viewers the access to create clips, or grant only channel followers of certain rank that ability. Mixer are not opting to allow complete open access like Twitch in order to reduce the amount of “out-of-context or low-quality clips.”

On a Partner’s stream, there should be a new clip icon, which looks just like the old one but with two stars inside of it. If your access is still restricted, a workaround still exists by acquiring the Google Chrome extension called NeatClip, which can be downloaded by using this link if you’re a Chrome user.

Can you clip on Mixer using console?

If you don’t want to use the extension, you’re also able to use the NeatClip website but that will make your life a lot harder as you’ll have to paste the entire video in, which makes it difficult to capture a certain moment.

This will work for any video and not just Mixer so it’s a handy extension to have. One setback, though, for users who tend to watch their favorite streamers on Xbox One platform don’t have a clip option at all available to them.

Ninja, TwitterNinja’s move to Mixer appears to have paved the way for more streamers to follow suit.

The new clipping experience that allows for viewers to create clips, if the streamer allows for it, also allows anyone creating clips to access the new trimming and titling features. Clips used to be automatically set to 30 seconds, but can now be altered to be as short as 15 seconds or as long as 60.

Creators will have the option to rename or delete clips by viewers of their streams. If a broadcast is deleted, any subsequent clips from that broadcast will be deleted as well.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
