Wirecast > YouTube latest info pls

Hi, I have a 3 day event coming up to stream to YT. It will be multiple presentations, start / stop / start throughout. Some room changes for the camera and laptop too.

I've seen the pinned post re YT changes and I've done tests but getting a little confused about what works / doesn't.

Given the nature of my event please advise the best way to set up a YT event that I can start / stop / start streaming to for 3 days, to give viewers a seamless experience with one YT URL for them. TIA.

  • The best way to use YouTube is to schedule the events in Wirecast and not YouTube Studio. Otherwise, you can use Generic RTMP and paste in Address and Stream Key. I think Generic RTMP may be best in your case. I would run some tests starting and stopping the stream to confirm. YouTube seems to be a bit of a moving target with its ongoing changes.

    • CraigS yes agree with your suggestion, tests show:

      Event created in WC with YT event popup  - streamed to YT, but then is REMOVED in YT if stop... so no good for stop / start livestreaming

      Event created in YT - Default stream key (RTMP, variable) ... add these details to WC as RTMP, CAN stop/start

  • One more... I am not an admin / manager of the client's YT channel (we both had error messages trying to add me). If I just use the stream url and key (in WC) that he creates (in YT), does it matter that I am not authenticated etc? Seemed ok in test but I wonder if I will get blocked further down the line?

     I would run a full test. YouTube seems like a moving target these days. It's one reason why we may need to work on further YouTube Studio API compatibility.
