So you’ve been using iRacing for a while now though you still haven’t figured out how to make video clips using the new “clips” feature?

Don’t worry, it’s actually not that hard.

In this guide we’re gonna walk you through the step-by-step process of finally making a video clip on iRacing.

So without further ado, let’s get started.

How do you clip iRacing replays?

So first thing you want to do is to save your replay.

Once that box is ticked, you should now go and find your saved in the Documents\iRacing\replay folder.

To watch the replay, go to the website and select “Results & Stats” from the menu bar.

“My Replays” is shown on the menu bar below when you hover your cursor over “Results & Stats.”

Click on “My Replays” and you will be presented with a list of your replays. There are two tabs here: one for Online Replays, and one for Testing Replays.

Double click the replay that you saved and you will see it load.

Once in the replay screen you can use the cut and save tools to save whatever you wanted to save from the replay, let’s say an incident that you want to capture for then makinga protest, and then you’re good to go!

Where I can find iRacing clips?

You can find them by going to the official iRacing account on Twitch and then go to the “Clips” section.

How do I use OBS with iRacing?

Another smart way of recording your in-stream replay on iRacing is by using the OBS free software.

Here’s a quick list of steps on how to set it up:

  1. A browser source must be added to the OBS Studio Sources area. Create a new Browser source (Right click/Add/Browser) and call it.
  2. Expand the broadcast screen by stretching the bounding box of the just created browser source to encompass the entire broadcast window.
  3. To keep the overlay browser source visible, move it to the top of the list.
  4. Right-click the Browser Source you just made and select Properties.
  5. Navigate to iRacing Live Timing and choose F3 Settings/Links. Paste the local connection url from the F1 style into OBS.
  6. To view an overlay remotely from another PC then paste the F1 style overlay url instead.
  7. Click OK after deleting the CSS textbox.

Time to wrap up:

Hopefully now you’ll be ready to go and start making your own video clips on iRacing.

As you can see, it’s not that complicated after all.

You’ll just to save the replay in the iRacing correct folder and then you’ll be able to view the clip from the “Results & Stats” menu on the website.

From there, you can use the cut and save tools to capture whatever part of the replay you want.

Finally, you can use the OBS software to broadcast your in-stream replays.

All you need now is some practice and you’ll be on your way to becoming a pro iRacing video clip maker and streamer in no time! 🙂

As always, happy sim racing!
