At this stage, four tasks are yet to be completed in order to start broadcasting.
The very first thing to do it here is downloading encoder software. Click here to get more info on encoders and download link. You can get the same from YouTube window as well.
I like to go with Wirecast that you can download from that page. But you can download any one from the list and install it.
Step 9. Now scroll down and here you will get a Server URL and Server Name/ key. Note it because it may require for encoding software.
Step 10. Open Wirecast or whichever you have installed. Then, you have to select the video, and audio source set the both things up.
Step 11. Next step is authenticating the connection between YouTube and Wirecast. For that go to Output>> Output settings and click Authenticate. On clicking Accept authenticates it.
Step 12. Now return to the output setting, you will see your Youtube account is connected with Wirecast. Just click on OK.
Step 13. It’s time to click on Stream button in the encoding software.
Step 14. Go back to the YouTube and access Live Control Room from Live Events editing menu. There, you will see a good label and preview button. Try to preview it. If it works, you have done everything right.
Step 15. Set title, description, category, etc. You may also set stream options to your choice.
Step 16. Now click on Start streaming, and DONE! Your video is live on youtube now. You can also check that by clicking on View on watch page.
I have used Wirecast encoder in this tutorial, but you may select any of your choices. There are many verified encoders.
