How do I turn on live streaming on YouTube?
Live streaming on new YouTube channels is available to everyone. YouTube is a huge platform where you can find videos on virtually any topic, so it's the perfect place to share interesting content. So how can we start live broadcasts?
- First we need to set up your account and activate live broadcasting. To do this, you need to select a country and choose your preferred delivery method for the confirmation code and enter your mobile number.
- Next, we need to enter the six-digit verification code we received to verify your account.
- If our account is already verified and we have access to live broadcasting, in the channel options we must select the option "Creator Studio
- Then click the option "Live stream"And press the"Start broadcasting live".
- If there are no streaming restrictions on a channel, we may stream to YouTube using a web browser or streaming encoder.
If we want to use a mobile device for streams, we have to face an additional obstacle - the channel must have at least 1000 subscribers.
Transmission via a mobile device
YouTube allows broadcasting from mobile devices (e.g. phones)
However, once you've hit the subscription threshold, it is pretty straightforward to live streaming from YouTube from your mobile device.
- First, you need to download the YouTube app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
- Open the app and agree to all access permissions required for live streaming (camera, microphone, photos, memory).
- Then we can start broadcasting.
- For this purpose, we can choose to stream from the phone's camera (camera icon) or from what is on the screen (phone icon).
- We can then set a title for your broadcast and add a description, enable live chat, set an age limit, adjust privacy settings and (optionally) schedule a live stream for a later time.
We can also take or add a photo to the broadcast thumbnail. The next step is just broadcasting and sharing interesting content.
