What can you edit in your Twitch live video?

The title

You can edit it however you like to add things that happened in the stream to encourage your followers to watch it again. 


It is clear that you did not know what could happen in the live. Imagine that the servers of the game you were playing crashed and you moved to another, you can add that to the description.

The category

This section allows Twitch viewers to find you by the video game you are playing or by the subject of your live, sports, music, etc. 

If you changed the category during the video, you can change it to get more views.

The thumbnail

This is something you can change, just like the title, to attract more viewers to your video. You can choose one of the sequence options from the streaming or upload one of your own edited with the format recommended by the platform.
