Receiving "Enable YouTube Live Streaming" Warning After Already Enabled

If YouTube shows that live streaming is enabled on your Channel, yet Switcher Studio shows the "YouTube account must have livestreaming enabled" message, it means that the connection needs to be reset.

NOTE: You'll need to use a computer for this process, and it will take 2-3 minutes to complete.

  1. Go to
  2. Click "MANAGE" beside the YouTube profile
  3. Click the big, red "DISCONNECT ACCOUNT" button to remove your YouTube link from Switcher
  4. Now, go to YouTube > Creator Studio > Live Streaming Dashboard:
  5. Scroll down to the box labelled "STREAM KEY"
  6. Click the "Reset" button.
  7. Return to
  8. Click "CONNECT" beside the YouTube option
  9. Reconnect your YouTube link to Switcher

You should now be able to stream to Switcher via our direct integration and via RTMP.
