How to Fix “Whoops, Something went wrong” Twitch Clips?

The Whoops. Something went wrong error often occur due to server-side issues. It appears when clipping a section of a stream, and the clip may get stuck at 100 percent loading, which is both frustrating and buggy.

This error can also result from the use of copyrighted music within the clip. Additionally, a poor internet connection and temporary glitches with the browser or Twitch webpage can contribute to this issue. Below are some fixes you might try to resolve this problem.

1. Toggle Off Your Browser’s Extensions

Sometimes, extensions interfere with how web pages load and function, which could be the reason behind the error you’re encountering. Deactivating your browser’s extensions serves a dual purpose; not only does it cut down on the usage of system resources, but it can also eliminate potential conflicts.

  1. Open your preferred web browser.
  2. Click the 3 dots on the top-right side of your screen.
  3. Hover your cursor over the Extensions tab, then click the Manage Extensions button.
  4. At the end of each extension, click on the corresponding toggle box.
  5. Toggle off each of your extensions one by one.

2. Delete Cookies And Cache Of Your Browser

Over time, these files can become outdated or corrupt, which may lead to problems when loading or playing streams on Twitch.

By deleting this stored data, you eliminate any potential issues that these files could be causing, making sure that Twitch can load the latest version of its pages and function without interference from old data. 

  1. Open your preferred web browser.
  2. Click the 3 dots at the top-right side of the screen.
  3. Choose the Clear browsing data option.
  4. A small window will pop up.
  5. Select the Time range option and choose All time.
  6. Deselect the Browsing history option.
  7. To delete all cached data and cookies, click the Clear data button.

Note: Close and reopen your browser after this step.

3. Re-Login To Your Account

Re-logging in establishes a fresh connection between your account and the Twitch servers, which can fix minor glitches and expired session data, helping to resolve many bugs.

Note: Make sure your internet connection is stable.

  1. Open your preferred web browser.
  2. Visit the Twitch website.
  3. Click your Profile icon.
  4. Select the Log Out option.
  5. Click your profile icon again.
  6. Choose the Log In button.
  7. Enter your Username and Password to continue.

Creator’s Side Solution:

Uncheck Subscriber-Only Archives

Disabling the Subscriber-Only Archives setting potentially resolves the clipping error because it removes restrictions on who can create clips. If this setting is enabled, only subscribers can clip streams, which could lead to errors for users who are not subscribed when they attempt to clip.

By unchecking this option, you eliminate the possibility that such permissions issues are causing the problem, thus allowing for smoother clip creation for all viewers.

Note: Make sure the Clips option is enabled in your stream settings.

  1. Once again, open you preferred web browser.
  2. Visit the Twitch website.
  3. Click your Profile icon.
  4. Choose the Creator Dashboard option.
  5. Access the Settings drop-down menu.
  6. Select the Affiliate option.
  7. Uncheck the Subscriber-only archives box.

Note: Refresh your Twitch webpage afterward.

If the issue persists, try using a different browser. For further assistance, submit your issue to Twitch contact support.
