How to Make Highlight Clips from Your Live Stream

This blog aims to explain how to use the Edit Highlight Clips feature to make the most of the significant moments in your live stream.

When streaming, some moments stand out more than others. Like a goal moment in a football match, or an interesting word in a speech. As a streamer, you may want to highlight these specific moments more prominently in your stream.

One way to highlight these moments is to tag them in the video index. But if you want to capture these moments in a more flexible and shareable way, you need to be able to edit highlights clips.

On most live streaming platforms, capturing a highlight requires downloading the recorded video, editing it elsewhere, and re-uploading it as a separate highlight file. With YoloCast, you can easily edit and share highlights in just a few simple steps.
