Almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every day and live video is growing faster than any other type of video before. So, if you are not doing live videos yet, you now have a compelling reason to go live on YouTube! And ManyCam can help you start your live streams the right way, with professional-looking live streams on an intuitive and easy-to-use platform, allowing you and your content to really stand out.

With ManyCam, you can share your live streams on multiple platforms at once to reach as many people as possible. During your live video, you can switch between different video sources and other media files, use on mobile camera, share your desktop or even draw on your desktop, while applying filters, effects and 3D masks. And best of all, it’s really easy to use. Let’s see how we can share our live video on YouTube.


Before you go live on YouTube

ManyCam allows you to add up to 12 different sources to use during your live video, playlists, effects and much more. So, get everything ready to go beforehand and make the most out of what ManyCam has to offer.

A cool way to test all your sources and the overall flow of your live video is to hit the record button and rehearse your entire video. Later on, when you watch your recorded session, you’ll be able to see what is actually working and what isn’t.

If you just want to do a quick sound check and test your different sources, you can always do a private live stream, that way your public won’t be able to see it.


Live Streaming on YouTube with ManyCam

Now that everything’s working perfectly and you’re ready to go live, go ahead and click on the Broadcast button. It will give you a few options, such as custom channels, Facebook and YouTube. For the purpose of this post, we chose to do on YouTube only. Keep in mind that ManyCam allows you to stream on multiple platforms at once. So, if you want you can go live on Facebook and YouTube simultaneously, for example.
