"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?"
I got the error when I tried to clip a section of a stream that contained a snippet of "Jack Sparrow" by The Lonely Island ft. Michael Bolton, no matter how I clipped it, or titled the clip (which was the first line of the chorus)
I think this is a Twitch skill issue most the time. The clipper is broken beyond use and will fail you at the most opportune time. Having a generic error there just saves them the embarrassment,
For anyone getting this error, try making the clip like a fraction shorter. Worked for me.
Your suggestion, "This clip failed due to copyright music," is indeed more clear and informative compared to the generic "Whoops. Something went wrong" error message. Providing users with specific information about the reason for the failure, such as copyright issues with the music in their clips, helps them understand the issue and take appropriate action. I also run these kind of things for my client's https://www.enviroworx.co.uk/ blog.
Clear and transparent communication in error messages is crucial for user experience, as it empowers users to address the problem effectively. Your proposed message directly communicates the cause of the issue, making it easier for Twitch users to navigate and resolve copyright-related problems with their clips.
I have no music at all and I get this **** error. It's my content, why can't I clip it???
Error is terrible. The clip I'm trying to create from a streamer's VOD doesn't even have copyright material in it. **** service. Fix your platform Twitch, not being able to clip stuff is how this platform will die behind TikTok and YouTube
Twitch LLLLLLLLLLLLL BRO fix this shiii
There's not even music going on in my clips/stream and I still can't clip for 2 days now because of this error, I'm going to have to download my entire vod and clip things in a video editor at this rate lol.
Fix your message system Twitch, at this point so many users are having this issue and it makes it hard to make content on your site. actually look at your feedback please
Twitch fix your f*cking site right now, people tryna make content and you got us getting error messages, how you expect us to stay on your worthless site. You guys have no brain
c'mon you can do better
worthless pos site you want 50% of the subs as well
WTF is this? I'm wasting my time to cut video precisely and after all I get... Whoops. Something went wrong. I think I'm gonna do... whoops I'm going to waste my time somewhere else
This problem is still happening in 2023 and I only was able to confirm this was the reason because I found this post while googling a fix for the issue. Twitch NEEDS to give us real error codes and not this cutesy garbage.
dude I cant even make clips of my own stuff when live or past. views, subs or follows cant make clips either. EVERYONE GETS THIS FFING ERROR. FIX THIS PLEASE! its been months since anyone could make a clip and you dont make it so anyone can just contact support on it.
Thank you for explaining what Twitch doesn't want to. The "Whoops" makes it even more confusing, because it sounds like it's an unintentional error, when if it's a copyright issue it's fully intentional that it's not working.
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
