Automatically make video compilations of the most viewed Twitch clips, and upload them to YouTube using Python 3.

Usage

Example of making a video through terminal

python main.py --data "g Just Chatting, c xQcOW, c Trainwreckstv" --client_id "1hq8ektpki36w5kn37mluioungyqjo" --oauth_token "9f5einm9qtp0bj4m9l1ykevpwdn98o" --duration 10.5 --resolution 1080 1920 --title "Top Just Chatting, xQc and Trainwrecks Twitch Clips Today" --tags "xqc, trainwrecks, twitch clips, xqc twitch, trainwrecks twitch"

g indicates game, c indicates channel. You can also use channel and game.

Every parameter that is not specified, will default to an assigned value in config.py.

Example of running with only default values:

python main.py

config.py:

DATA = ["channel maskenissen"]

CLIENT_ID = "1hq8ektpki36w5kn37mluioungyqjo"  # Twitch Client ID
OAUTH_TOKEN = "9f5einm9qtp0bj4m9l1ykevpwdn98o"  # Twitch OAuth Token
PERIOD = "day"  # day, week, month or all
LANGUAGE = "en"  # en, es, th etc.
LIMIT = 100  # 1-100
...

You can also run the bot from a Python file like example.py

from time import sleep
from twitchtube.video import make_video
from twitchtube.utils import get_path

while True:
    make_video(
        data=["channel xQcOW", "game Just Chatting"],
        path=get_path(),
        client_id="1hq8ektpki36w5kn37mluioungyqjo",  # example client id (fake)
        oauth_token="9f5einm9qtp0bj4m9l1ykevpwdn98o",  # example token (fake)
        video_length=10.5, # minutes as float
        resolution=(1080, 1920), # height x width
        frames=60,
        period="day", # most viewed clips today
    )
    sleep(24 * 60 * 60) # make a video daily

These are all the parameters make_video takes

def make_video(
    data: list = DATA,
    blacklist: list = BLACKLIST,
    # other
    path: str = get_path(),
    check_version: bool = CHECK_VERSION,

    oauth_token: str = OAUTH_TOKEN,
    period: str = PERIOD,
    language: str = LANGUAGE,
    limit: int = LIMIT,
    # selenium
    profile_path: str = ROOT_PROFILE_PATH,
    sleep: int = SLEEP,
    headless: bool = HEADLESS,
    debug: bool = DEBUG,
    # video options
    render_video: bool = RENDER_VIDEO,
    file_name: str = FILE_NAME,
    resolution: tuple = RESOLUTION,
    frames: int = FRAMES,
    video_length: float = VIDEO_LENGTH,
    resize_clips: bool = RESIZE_CLIPS,
    enable_intro: bool = ENABLE_INTRO,
    resize_intro: bool = RESIZE_INTRO,
    intro_path: str = INTRO_FILE_PATH,
    enable_transition: bool = ENABLE_TRANSITION,
    resize_transition: bool = RESIZE_TRANSITION,
    transition_path: str = TRANSITION_FILE_PATH,
    enable_outro: bool = ENABLE_OUTRO,
    resize_outro: bool = RESIZE_OUTRO,
    outro_path: str = OUTRO_FILE_PATH,
    # other options
    save_file: bool = SAVE_TO_FILE,
    save_file_name: str = SAVE_FILE_NAME,
    upload_video: bool = UPLOAD_TO_YOUTUBE,
    delete_clips: bool = DELETE_CLIPS,
    # youtube
    title: str = TITLE,
    description: str = DESCRIPTION,
    thumbnail: str = THUMBNAIL,
    tags: list = TAGS,
) -> None:
    ...

Information about every parameter can be found in config.py.

Installation

Download the repo as ZIP and unzip it somewhere accessible, or use git.

To install all the packages needed, you have to run this command, by being in the same directory as the requirements.txt and main.py files are.

pip install -r requirements.txt 

Download geckodriver and add it to PATH. If you are on Windows you can follow this post.

You can now check if it works by running this command in the terminal:

geckodriver --version

If geckodriver has been added to PATH, you should now see the current version number and some licensing text.

Configuration

Creating your Twitch Application

image

Go to https://dev.twitch.tv/console/apps/create and register a new application. The name of the application does not matter. Set "OAuth Redirect URLs" to https://twitchapps.com/tokengen/

Set category to "Application Integration" or "Other".

image

Click "Manage".

image

Copy the Client ID and go to config.py. Find CLIENT_ID and paste it inside apostrophes.

Getting your OAuth Token

image

Now head over to https://twitchapps.com/tokengen/ and paste in your Client ID, which you just copied. Scopes does not matter in our case. Click "Connect" and then authorize with Twitch.

image

Copy your OAuth Token and go to config.py, find OAUTH_TOKEN and paste it inside the apostrophes.

Setting up Firefox

Open Firefox and create a new profile for Selenium, (this is not needed, but highly recommended). Go to about:profiles and click "Create a New profile", name it "Selenium" or whatever.

image

Copy the "Root Directory" path of that profile and paste it into the ROOT_PROFILE_PATH in config.py. Now click "Launch profile in new browser". Go to YouTube and login to the account you want to use with twitchtube.

Don't use Selenium as your default profile.

You can now save your config.

Troubleshooting

Uploading

If you're having issues uploading try to update opplast.

pip install --upgrade opplast

Sometimes YouTube is weird, so trying multiple times might work. Set debug=True and headless=False to see what it's actually doing. Increasing sleep might also work. If you have configured everything correctly, and are still running into errors, leave a detailed issue here.
