Livestream Universe Update & Amazon Alexa Flash Briefing
Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update. YouTube is limiting live-streaming from its native mobile app to channels with a minimum of one thousand subscribers. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go live from mobile to YouTube regardless of your subscriber count.
Let’s talk about your options.
It’s worth noting that the policy changes don’t apply to live-streaming from your desktop or laptop browser or webcam or anyone using an encoder. If you have under 1,000 subscribers, there are 3rd party encoding applications and hardware encoders that will take you from your mobile device to YouTube Live.
Two of the best encoding apps for mobile live-streaming to YouTube are Switcher Studio and Wirecast Go. These enable you to add professional production elements to your mobile broadcast.
If you’d like to livestream from your mobile device to multiple destinations including Youtube Live, pair an encoding app with a cloud account from Switchboard Live and send your streams to any or all of the major social platforms.
Another option for YouTube channels of all sizes is using a hardware encoder. With the LiveU Solo, you can livestream directly from a mobile device, camcorder or DSLR camera from anywhere using LiveU’s cellular bonding technology.
Check out LIvestreamUniverse.com/Resources to learn more about Switcher Studio, Wirecast Go from Telestream, Switchboard Live and the Solo from LiveU. With these solutions you can increase the production and streaming quality of your mobile videos and distribute your mobile content to more viewers. And congrats to all of those brands for being named to the 2019 Streaming Media Producer 25 by Streaming Media Magazine.
