First came video, then came live. How often have you been on Facebook or Instagram and seen the little “Live” notification pop up? Live streaming has become a seriously popular way to share live events, company presentations and behind the scenes footage as things happens.
But did you know you can also create live streams on YouTube? In this guide we’ll look at how to go live on YouTube with mobile and desktop apps and how to set up your dashboard in a viewer-friendly fashion.
Apps and encoding software for YouTube Live
To live stream on YouTube desktop or mobile (if you have less than 100 subscribers) you will need additional encoding software. This is used to capture what your camera sees, what your microphone hears and and what your desktop shows, to send out to your viewers.
Luckily, there are lots of apps to do this. You can see Google’s full list of verified encoders for YouTube Live here. The benefit of using a verified live app is that they’re already paired with YouTube live. So you can log in with your Google account and the encoder will be setup and ready to go without you doing anything.
