YouTube Streaming on Existing Event

When you create a live stream with a YouTube social account, we create a new event on YouTube for every stream.
However you can use custom RTMP link streaming to send a video stream to a an already existing YouTube Streaming Event

Visit your YouTube live stream event https://www.youtube.com/my_live_events

Click Live Control Room button next to your event.

YouTube Live Control Room

If you do not have any existing events or want to create a new one just click the New live event button at the top right.

Click Ingestion Settings tab.

YouTube Ingestion Settings

Scroll down and you will see the Ingestion settings for your event.

YouTube Ingestion Settings

Copy Stream Name to Stream Key in OneStream custom RTMP account settings.

Copy Primary Server URL to Server/RTMP URL in OneStream custom RTMP account settings.

The Platform Name can be anything you want.

Configuring YouTube Event on OneStream Custom RTMP

Click Connect to OneStream.

Schedule a new Stream and choose this custom RTMP social account as your destination.

Once the live stream starts, you need to click Go Live from YouTube live control room.

The downside of this approach is that you have to be present on your computer and manually click Go Live from within YouTube event live control room. Otherwise viewers will not see it.
