Chillhop Creators – Account Setup & Crediting Rules

Welcome! If you haven’t already, we encourage you to first check out our Chillhop Creators page to learn more about the program, policies and FAQs.

As part of the Creator program, we want Twitch and YouTube creators to be able to use our music in their videos without any copyright issues. You can even monetize these videos / stream with ads! The only thing we ask in return is for the creators to credit Chillhop so people are able to connect with us if they like the music.

The setup is a bit different between Twitch and YouTube, so please follow the steps below based on which service you are using.

Part 1: Create a Chillhop Creator account

Step 1: Go to the Creators Page and click “Sign Up” > “Connect my Channel” create an account (this is what we use to connect your Twitch or YouTube channel for credit-based music usage).

Part 2: Link your Twitch or YouTube channel

Step 1: Log in to your Creators account from the main site. If you’ve logged in, your avatar will be in the top-right. If not, it will be our raccoon logo.

Click that square, and click “Dashboard” if you’re logged in, or log in if you’re not.

Step 2: Go to the “Creators Dashboard” link on the left.

Step 3: Click the “Link Twitch Channel” or “Link YouTube Channel” button. This will pop a window prompting you to log into your Twitch/YouTube account. By granting us the permissions to view your channel’s username and your email, we can verify that you’re crediting us properly, and we can whitelist your channel from claims.

Part 3: Crediting Chillhop Music

Crediting on Twitch

Step 1: Go to your channel’s page on Twitch. For the updated Twitch layout, you will need to click on the “About” tab.

Step 2: Click the “Edit panels” toggle at the bottom. Here’s Twitch’s knowledge base article about Info Panels for more context.

Step 3: Click the “+” panel (usually at the bottom or end of your current panels).

Click “Add a Text or Image Panel.”

Add one of our crediting images to the panel. There’s a template to create your own image at the bottom of the gallery.

We varied up the colors, too!

Then, fill in the URL with this URL:

Click “Submit” – and you’re done! :)

Crediting on YouTube

Step 1: Click “Download” on Chillhop song of your choice and that will bring up a “Credits & Download” pop-up (make sure it’s not getting blocked).

Step 2: Please use the “Mandatory Video Credit” text and link in the description of your video.

A little boring by comparison to Twitch, but it gets the job done 😉. We don’t require that you credit the individual songs, but we very much appreciate that extra effort of crediting each song/artist – so, thanks to all who do! 🙏

Crediting Twitch VODs/Exports to YouTube

The instructions for crediting a Twitch stream that’s been highlighted or exported to YouTube are the same as crediting a non-stream YouTube video.
