Restrictions on live streaming

Your channel's live streaming ability will be automatically disabled for any of the following reasons:

  • Your channel received a TOU strike.

  • Your live stream or archived live stream is blocked globally.

  • Your live stream or archived live stream receives a copyright takedown.

Live stream restrictions last for 90 days or until the associated issue(s) are resolved. You can check your channel's access to live streaming 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).
