Downloading Twitch clips using the developer tools requires finding the clip link from the web page source code. So the first thing you need to do is enter twitch.tv and go to the details page of the clip you want to download.

Press Ctrl + F (Windows) or command + F (Mac) on your keyboard, then type "playsinline" in the search field that appears in the Developer Tools window to locate the clip's link.
When "playsinline" is positioned and highlighted in the Element window, we can find the clip link in the src parameter in that line of code. Double click the link and copy it.
Step 4 : Paste the link into the address bar to download
After the above three steps, it's time to get the Twitch clip video. Paste the link of the clip into the address bar and hit enter, and the clip will automatically download to your device.
