Restrictions on live streaming

Global Availability

YouTube Live streams cannot be viewed from Germany.


Channels that are not in good standing will be automatically disabled for live streaming until the associated issue(s) are resolved. In-progress live events will be stopped if any videos on the channel receive strikes. You can check your channel's status here.


It is against Terms of Use to include third-party advertisements in live streams. This includes burned-in commercials (for example, video content from a television feed).
