You can learn how to go live on Youtube here.

Before starting your broadcast to Youtube you need to grant particular permissions for Be.Live to access your channel.

If it's the first time you grant permissions, you should get the following popup after selecting Youtube as a destination:

Some of the checkboxes are already checked but make sure the last one is also marked as "Allow" – by doing it you give Be.Live access to post streams on your channel and access comments.

❗️Note: We can't directly edit, delete or change any of your content. This is a standard agreement for YouTube/Google when giving permission to a third-party app. We’re working with YouTube via their API - programming interface that allows us to post live shows on your behalf but we don't have access to your Google account or Youtube.

Later on, you may receive a shorter popup. Simply click on Allow, and you are good to proceed:

Something to remember❗️

If you skip those permissions, you won't be able to go live on your Youtube channel. In this case, you will see the following warning message in your studio:

⚠️ You don't have enough permissions to stream to this destination.

How can I check if permissions are granted?

Head to your Google account settings > Security section > Third-party apps with account access

If you don't see Be.Live in the list, please follow these steps:

  • Open Be.Live studio

  • Select Youtube as a destination

  • Press Remove if it's a second destination or Reset if it's the first one

  • Select Youtube as a destination again

  • Grant permissions

And you are all set! Enjoy broadcasting ☀️
