YouTube event streaming and authentication

We usually stream to YouTube using RTMP with a fixed stream key without any problems. Our last broadcast required a 'scheduled event' so we could provide a fixed YT URL destination to another party for a paywall. They needed the destination URL days in advance of the event. We opened WireCast, authenticated, and set up the event. It showed up on the YT dashboard and in WC. We had to change the scheduled 'event time' but when we tried to edit it in WC it would not change in the dashboard. However, changing the Event time in the YT dashboard did show as changed in WC. 

On the day of the event we restarted WC, authenticated, selected the event but when we tried to stream the event the stream indicator continuously blinked and no video showed on YT. In a panic, I set up an RTMP stream using the scheduled event's address and stream key copied and pasted from the TY dashboard. This worked. The video streamed and played on the correct YT URL. 

Occasionally we need to use 'scheduled events' going forward. Any suggestions on fixing this problem?

I may have a 'support' dump still on the laptop. Wirecast 14.1.2, 15" MacBook Pro, High Sierra/
