Youtube Live

There is two ways to stream out to your Youtube channel:

In any scenario, your channel needs to request access to live streaming.
Open the Youtube Creator Studio then request the activation. 
Be aware that this enablement take up to 24 hours.

Youtube has no limit of time for the live stream. However, there will be no recording if it lasts more than 12h so we advise you to stay under this limit. 

1. You create a Youtube Live event on your own 

You login into your account, schedule and create your event and send us Stream Key
Please refer to the official Youtube Live documentation

  • Once you are eligible go there
  • Choose between schedule an event and immediate start of a show at the question When do you want to go live? 
  • At the step Pick the type of stream to begin select Streaming software
  • Under Stream settings > Stream key > Select stream key dropdown, select "Brainsonic Live" or Create a new stream key if it doesn't exists
  • Name the new key "Brainsonic Live", select RTMP as streaming protocol then CREATE
  • Once back on the Studio interface, make sure that the newly created Stream Key is selected, then copy the Stream Key and send it to your Brainsonic representative.
  • If you are not planning any interaction between the audience and the content streamed (i.e. pre-recorded material), choose Normal latency as Stream Latency 
  • The livestream will start once the Brainsonic Streaming Infrastructure will start streaming. Despite wanting to start as late as possible we recommend starting streaming way before show start (i.e., 20min) to avoid any issue and take no chance to miss the live show start. Alternatively you may want to create a scheduled event and then be able to go live by pressing a button.

To access or launch a scheduled live stream, go to the Live Control room and select Manage
