Stage TEN | Streaming to YouTube

We make multistream and live video commerce easy. Follow these steps to broadcast to YouTube immediately, or to schedule a YouTube live stream.

Important:

Before broadcasting to YouTube, you must enable your account for live streaming, which may take up to 24 hours.  You must also ensure that you have connected your YouTube Channel connected to your Stage TEN account.  Learn more on how to do this here.

Going LIVE immediately (without scheduling)

If your YouTube channel is already connected to Stage TEN, and if you have not previously scheduled a broadcast, you'll see a "default" destination that Stage TEN creates for you - it'll look like this:

Click the "Live Control Room" link to edit the privacy of your broadcast (otherwise the default privacy will be unlisted, and your subscribers won't be notified)

When you are ready to go LIVE, turn on the YouTube option under the Live Destinations using the toggle. Use the same toggle to turn OFF your live stream at the end of your event.

To get a share link for your broadcast, click the icon beside the YouTube icon.

If your broadcast is set to Public, you can also find the link on your YouTube channel.  

Going LIVE to YouTube Scheduled Events

Pre-Scheduling your events allows you to:

  • Promote your broadcast ahead of time and get a larger audience. (Learn More)
  • Share the event information (Streaming URL and Stream Key) with YouTube collaborators to publish a stream to your channel.

There are multiple ways to set up your YouTube Live Event on YouTube.  We find the following method to be the best option:

Step 1: Go to youtube.com.

Step 2: make sure you're logged into the correct YouTube channel (the one you connected to Stage TEN)

Step 3: Click the camera icon and select 'Go Live'.

Step 4: Click 'New Stream', set your Stream Details, and click Create Stream.

 

Step 4: When you next log into Stage TEN (or reload your Stage TEN browser) you will now see that scheduled broadcast in your destination list

Step 5: To start broadcasting, toggle this switch ON from the Stage TEN Studio. You can go live anytime before or after your scheduled start time. 

 

Step 6: To stop broadcasting, toggle the switch OFF from the Stage TEN Studio, or click STOP ALL.
