How to Live Stream to YouTube
You can stream to a YouTube Channel. You’ll need your Server URL and Streaming Key from YouTube. You can stream up to 9 webcams, screen sharing, presentation slides, whiteboard annotations, MP4 Videos, and Youtube Videos. When streaming videos, please make sure the video and audio is not copyrighted. YouTube may interrupt your stream if you are streaming copyrighted content.
1. "Create a Webinar" and choose "Live Stream". Name the webinar like normal.
Please note: Live stream cannot use Webcast mode. So webinars expecting more than 50 attendees in the webinar room on BigMarker, may experience connection issues. Also, YouTube and Facebook cannot be streamed at the same time.
2. After creating the webinar, go to the webinar's Manage section. There you will see both Setup Facebook Live Stream and Setup YouTube Live Stream. You can either Add the Streaming Key before the webinar opens or after.
You'll find your Server URL and Streaming Key under the Encoder Setup within the YouTube Live Streaming section of your account: https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard
Please note: It is not necessary to add the Streaming Key before the webinar is open. You’ll still have to initiate the stream from inside the webinar room. Once the webinar is open, click Enter Webinar.
3. After you enter the webinar room, you'll need to share something: camera, screen, video or slides.
4. Then, click the YouTube "Go Live" button. However, you won't be live yet.
5. Next, copy and paste the Server URL and Streaming Key in the text fields. You will need to click reveal to access the Key. It's timed for security purposes. Do not share that key with anyone else. Once again, the URL and the Key are located under Encoder Setup within your YouTube Live dashboard: https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard
6. Next, click "Publish To YouTube" from the popup that appears after clicking go live.
7. In the webinar room, you will see a "Live Streaming on YouTube Live" banner alert. You can also end the stream there by clicking "End Broadcast".
8. If you go to your YouTube Live dashboard, you will see your stream. You can also change edit or change any privacy settings of the live stream https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard
9. Once you're "Live", you will appear within your dashboard. YouTube has various settings and options to choose from. You can also share the link of the broadcast.
Please note: Youtube viewers will see content with a 20-second delay due to YouTube Live processing time. Also, If you keep the YouTube tab open, click the speaker icon within the video player to mute the YouTube stream, so you don’t hear audio twice.
