Create a highlight

When you create a live stream, highlights can help you to share a shorter, edited version of the live stream while you're streaming.

 

Add a stream marker to easily make a highlight

To make creating highlights easier, you can insert stream markers  when something interesting happens while you're live streaming. Then when you're making a highlight in YouTube Editor, you'll see stream markers on the timeline.

How to create a highlight

You can create a highlight while you're streaming or edit it after you've finished streaming. If you're streaming by yourself (like many gamers), you'll probably insert a stream marker for reference and then create a highlight after your stream ends. If you're part of a team, you can easily create a highlight as you're streaming.

 

  1. Open YouTube Studio.
  2. From the top-right, click Create and then Go live.
  3. Click Stream or Manage and start a stream.
  4. When something interesting happens, add a stream marker by tapping Insert stream marker  from the top-right.
  5. From the top, click Create highlight .
  6. Trim the video: Select what you want to highlight. You can drag the handlebars on the timeline or edit the timestamps. 
    Mute or unmute: Tap Mute .
  7. Enter a title, set the video's privacy and add a description.
  8. Click Create. Your video will be published automatically.
