Clipping a Livestream

You can clip the previous 60 seconds of any Whatnot livestream, then share, trim, and publish that clip. 

Publishing a clip will display that clip on both the seller’s and clipper’s profiles. To learn more about viewing and managing livestream clips on your profile, visit this article.

Note: Creating, trimming, and publishing clips are only available on the iOS mobile app, but you can view all clips on the web browser or iOS mobile app. 

Creating a clip during a livestream

Anyone can clip a livestream on Whatnot, including the seller in their stream.  

  1. Open the Whatnot app on your iOS device. 
  2. Find and open a livestream.
  3. Tap the Clip button on the right-hand side of the livestream.

  4. Wait for your clip to finish generating, then choose what you’d like to do with that clip:
    • Trim & Publish: Trim your clip as needed and publish it so anyone at Whatnot can view that clip. 
    • Copy Link: Copy the clip URL so you can post or share it with anyone. 
    • Share Clip: Choose how you want to share your clip through your mobile device’s sharing options.

      Note: If you choose not to publish your clip, only you and those you share this clip with can view it. 

Trimming and publishing a livestream clip

You can return to an unpublished clip at any time to trim and publish 

  1. On your iOS device, create a new livestream clip or open an unpublished clip. 
  2. Tap Trim & Publish.

    Note: Your clip must be at least 20 seconds long.
  4. Add a name to your clip in the Name your Clip field. 
  5. Tap Publish.

  6. Choose View my clip or Back to Live to close out of the clip editor. 

Once a clip is published, you can view that clip on your profile page. And, if that clip is of another streamer, it will also appear on their profile.
