Twitch Stream Highlights to YT Automatic Uploader (AutoBot Clipper)
This script can be used to automatically extract highlights (or clips) from a twitch stream (with rewind enabled) and then upload the same to a YouTube channel. It can be used to completely automate a twitch highlights channel.
It needs the following manual input to work:
- Provide timestamps of the clip to be extracted from a stream.
- Set the title, description, tags and privacy status of the video when uploading to YouTube
Clone the script
git clone https://github.com/teja156/autobot-clipper
Install the requirements with pip
pip install -r requirements.txt
YouTube API Setup
You need to first create an account on Google Cloud Platform in-order to use the YouTube Data API v3 (which is required to programatically upload videos to YouTube). Follow these steps to do so:
- Create an account on the Google Developers Console
- Register a new app there
- Enable the Youtube API (APIs & Services -> Enable APIs and Services)
- Go to APIs & Services -> OAuth Consent screen.
- Configure your App name, developer email, etc and go to Scopes
- Add the scope 'youtube.upload', and then 'Save and Continue'
- Add the email address of the channel in 'Test Users' and Save.
- Create Client ID (APIs & Services -> Credentials -> Create Credentials), select 'Oauth client ID', select type 'Web application'
- Add an 'Authorized redirect URI' of 'http://localhost:8080/oauth2callback'
- Download the client secrets JSON file (click download icon next to newly created client ID) and save it as file
client_secrets.jsonin the same directory as the script.
- First run
config.pyto authenticate your channel with YouTube API. This will create a file named credentials.txt in the same directory. You only need to run this once.
bot.pyto start the script.
NOTE: For Twitch VOD URL, make sure you enter the URL of the video and not the live stream. For example,
https://twitch.tv/shroud is an invalid input, you must enter something like
https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1088769006 You can find the VOD URL by going to
https://twitch.tv/username/videos and open the most recent video, this is same as the current live stream but here you can also rewind the stream. However, the vod will be available in the videos page only if the streamer enables "past broadcasts" option on his/her channel.
If your video belongs to any category other than Gaming, you need to mention the appropriate category ID. You can find the list of categoy IDs here.
You can also use a constant description for all your uploads by changing the text in constdesc.txt file. The credits text will be automatically appended to the description while uploading the video. You can also specify hashtags to include in the description.
