Live Control Room is now the new home for live streaming on YouTube
1
Hi creators,

In March 2019, we launched the new Live Control Room in YouTube Studio, to help streamers create, manage, and monitor live streams all in one place. Since then, we have been making constant improvements to live streaming on YouTube by working closely with all types of streamers. We’ve listened to your feedback and implemented feature requests.

Today, we are excited to announce an improved set of features that will address feedback we heard from many of you about making it easier to go straight to a dashboard and start streaming. You can see some of these features on the Stream tab in Live Control Room: 

  • An update to the stream dashboard with quick access to all live stream settings. Your previous stream settings will be copied automatically to enable you to go live instantly.
  • Starting and stopping streams on YouTube from your encoder. You will need to come to YouTube first, and then you are ready to stream! 
  • Simplified stream key management. Meaning no need to create a new stream key for every new stream. For advanced users, you can still manage multiple stream keys as before. 

With these updates, we are confident to call Live Control Room the permanent home for streamers and, starting in early August, we will gradually remove the Classic Streaming option from the left-hand side navigation menu. Two weeks before this change applies to your channel, you will receive a notification in YouTube Studio with more details. 

For those of you trying  Live Control Room for the first time, welcome! We’ve been hard at work adding a bunch of improvements over the last year. A few highlights include:

  • An improved stream dashboard that lets you monitor the health of the stream, in-depth analytics, viewer activity (Super Chat, Super Stickers, Memberships), and a preview of your stream all from one place.
  • Improved highlight creation: When you start a new stream, you can create a highlight, and directly publish a new video, right from the dashboard. If you are short on time, you can just add markers in the stream dashboard and then release a highlight of the stream immediately after the stream is over, even before it may be done processing.
  • An improved Manage page where you can create and schedule multiple live streams to help remind viewers about upcoming streams as well as assessing stream health from a bird’s eye view. 
  • Upgraded backend technology, much more stable than Classic live tools, that allows us to release new features that creators want a lot faster.

Please note: If you are using Live Control Room for the first time, you will need to update your stream key in your encoders to the one shown in Live Control Room. This is a one time update and you will not have to do this again.

Most streamers are already using Live Control Room, but, if you haven't tried it yet, we encourage you to do so in the next few weeks so you can get familiar with the platform and its new features before the Classic tools are deprecated. Check out this Live Control Room walkthrough here.

We hope you enjoy these updates and that you continue sharing your feedback so we can make live streaming on YouTube the best experience it can be! 

Happy streaming,
Jensen (TeamYouTube)
