Stream to YouTube Live

Whit our service you can send live streams to YouTube Live, where your audience can watch your live event.

The Stream Targets feature allows you to send live streams to widely distributed destinations. For example, you can send a live stream from our server to YouTube Live. This allows you to engage the YouTube community and retain media for video-on-demand delivery when the broadcast concludes.

Streaming to YouTube Live requires that you have a Google account and that you’re set up in YouTube to broadcast live streams.

How to broadcast to YouTube Live

Set up the YouTube live event:

Make sure you have a YouTube account with Live Events capability. If you don’t have a Live Events option in your YouTube Video Manager page, you can’t send a live stream to YouTube. Then, sign in to the YouTube Video Manager Live Events page and create a event to receive the live stream from Streaming Pulse and deliver it for viewing over YouTube.

1) Sign in to the YouTube Video Manager Live Events page and click New live event.

2) On the Basic info tab of the Info and Settings page, enter the relevant information about the stream (title, description, date/time, location, and so on) into the fields.

3) For Type, select Custom (more encoding options).
