Live YouTube streaming

20/07/2015 by Nick Johnson


Live video streaming at events has grown in popularity, as more and more organisers want to include further personalised content into their special occasions. Videos work well on screen as they capture the attention of the audience, creating a sense of variety which make them feel fresh and exciting. The ability to broadcast live footage onto screens whilst at an event is a huge step forward in terms of development, as live proceedings can now be more easily viewed by spectators with poor viewing positions. As the video is being played off a live YouTube stream, effectively the only cost would be the camera that is filming the event - cutting out larger costs for a professional Audio & Visual team.

The YouTube live stream works by initially setting up a channel with 100 or more subscribers, before then scheduling the specific time and date of each video to play.
