"Whoops. Something went wrong," a confusing worthless error message for copyright!
"Whoops. Something went wrong," is about the most confusing and least helpful error message that you could provide for twitch users when their clips fail due to copyright music.
How about, "This clip failed due to copyright music?"
Still same useless error even to this day. I solved this entirely myself by downloading the entire stream recording which wasn't all that bad quality considering it was 1080p 6mbps late night car drive stream. Let's hope twitch will finally smarten up and at least give us error codes.
I've run into something weirdly funny. So last night I'm having a bit of drinks and games with the friendos and I was just jamming out (I have vague recollection till I looked back on the VOD) and y'know like any other streamer we sometimes go back and clip things that were funny and stuff right? Yeah... I got "Whoops. Something went wrong." Repeatedly when trying to make said clip that I ended up bypassing it by making it a Highlight instead. The best part is if we go by the rules "this clip failed due to copyright music" then... I don't know what to tell you besides it was an acapella by a non-sober me. Not sure if the system is just scuffed or if my singing was just that on point. The highlight/clip in question is below.
Edit: I tried what the comment below did, moving it by like a pixel or so over and then it worked into a clip? LMFAO.
thank you. the person below me said exactly the same thing I've been doing too lol
I had to login just to upvote this. Thank you for being the answer to my time spent on clearing caches and reinstalling browsers on 3 different devices in the past 72 hours. Please clarify your errors Twitch. Cheers bruv.
It's insane that the only way I even figured out that the problem was a copyright claim was by finding this post when googling the error message. Please make it clearer.
is it normal that i cant clip if their is dmca music but not in the clip just in the vod?
I ran into a different issue where my clips were badly integrated to the chat.
But in fact clip integration was disabled, even though the integration system "tried" to work only for giving me the "A problem happened" treatment. I'm sure many streamers wanted clips visible in the chat of their channel only for the thing to not work because an option wasn't turned on.
Agreed. I love watching streams, but I hate twitch and how hugely incompetent they are.
hugely agree. i tried publishing a clip multiple times over the span of 2 days, using 3 browsers and re-installing/clearing my cache, and waiting hours in between in case it was a server-side issue. in the end, i figured it was because my clip contained music. just tell me it's a copyright issue so i can stop wasting my time.
