Modern creators are on many social media channels. With dozens of thriving video and photo sharing platforms, creators can grow an audience through different social media communities and share their story everywhere.

The powerful video editor can supercharge your editing workflow and enable a media team to collaborate in a single digital space, giving creators peace of mind and creative control.
Some streamers are able to get a TikTok Stream key, but it can take months even for super popular streamers. Kapwing’s repurpose tools can help you get your content on TikTok immediately without waiting for permission. Instead, you can make videos that show both the stream and the streamer by importing Twitch clips to showcase your highlights.
Want to drive traffic to your Twitch stream or grow a fanbase on TikTok? Turn your game highlights and twitch clips into TikTok videos. Both Twitch and TikTok have also exploded in popularity since the beginning of 2020. on Twitch, top moments are captured in Clips, audience-generated bits of streaming video that run under 30 seconds long. TikTok is the perfect place to grow your own Twitch channel or share the best moments from your favorite streamer.
Start by finding the Twitch Clip you want to turn into a TikTok video. You can find clips of your favorite streamers by going to their profiles, then scrolling down to Popular Clips, where all clips made from their stress are listed in order of view count. You can also find all the clips you made yourself by clicking your profile picture in the top right, selecting Creator Dashboard, clicking Content in the left menu, then Clips.
Then, paste the link to import your clip into Kapwing. Start with a 9:16 canvas, adding bars above and below your video. To make the most of TikTok’s 9:16 frame, try splitting the video layer into 2 sections, with gameplay (or whatever the streamer is doing) on top, and the streamer view on bottom. Add captions and a colored or geometric background, then export your video to share on TikTok.
Alternatively, you can rotate your video and add a text overlay telling the TikTok viewer to tilt their phone to watch, blur the background behind the landscape video, or resize to one section of the Clip, cutting out the rest of the content. Add a text watermark of the streamer’s handle if you’re reposting someone else’s content.
Since they are 30 seconds long, all Twitch clips should be able to fit on TikTok. But if you have a longer stream recording, trim the video down to less than 3 minutes before posting. Add hashtags like #smallstreamer, #tiktokstreamer, and #gamingtiktok to increase your chances of making the fyp and going viral. Whether you stream Valorant, Minecraft, Amongus, Roblox, Fortnite, art, or other games, you can turn your Twitch moments into entertaining TikToks to get more fans.
You must have 1000 followers on TikTok before you will be able to get a TikTok stream key. If you have a stream key, go to TikTok on desktop and click “Go Live”, then “Go Live” again to confirm. TikTok will then display your stream key. You can use this unique sequence of numbers and letters to stream from OBS. In OBS, go to File > Settings > Stream, then copy/paste the server key as a “Custom” service. You’ll also need to change your canvas in OBS (or other streaming services) to 1080x1920.
Your TikTok stream key changes every day, so you need to repeat this process daily to ensure that your stream goes through to TikTok. If this method doesn’t work for you, try networking with a TikTok employee on Twitter or LinkedIn to ask them for help. TikTok employees can look up the stream key for any account.
