STEP #2: Share your livestream link with participants


  • youtube.com/user/[channelname]/live
  • Provide the link above with your 'channel name'
  • We recommend adding it to your invitations and suggest it as an alternative option for 'overflow' if you are expecting you may exceed the maximum total of 100 participants.


STEP #3: Now you are ready to Live Stream!

 

  •  Start an Online Meeting from your account dashboard
  •  Click the Circle 'Record' icon in the top toolbar
  •  Select 'Record Video' and ensure the checkbox 'Live Stream Video' is selected.
  • This will start a live stream on your YouTube Channel (NOTE: This will only appear if you have entered your YouTube credentials)
