YouTube’s new STREAM NOW (beta) @youtube @telestream

Adafruit 0197
YouTube has a new STREAM NOW (beta). It’s different than the usual “Events” manager in the CREATOR STUDIO. STREAM NOW appears to be specifically (and only) for events you want to do immediately, there is no scheduling, however, you do get a perma-URL for your channel if and when you are live (for Adafruit it’s https://www.youtube.com/c/adafruit/live). It looks like YouTube (google) wants to better compete with Twitch (Amazon). The new interface is really good, if we’re going to do something quick/live, this is what we’d use. There is a list of supported encoders, which are tools to publish/stream to the live stream, however, Wirecast Pro 6 which we use, isn’t listed, another version of Wirecast, Wirecast Play is listed, we do not know the difference and if we can upgrade/transfer over, we emailed Telestream to ask.

Also very new is detailed analytics, this VERY interesting to us. We’ll need to figure out what type of consistent live ongoing programming we’d like to do (maybe a pick and place live feed).

For now we’ll continue to use the Events section in CREATOR STUDIO to schedule a New Live Event (ASK AN ENGINEER, WEARABLE ELECTRONICS WITH BECKY STERN), we’ll test the new live feature with STREAM NOW once Telestream tells us what our options are with Wirecast Pro 6 vs Wirecast Play.
