The direct YouTube integration Switcher Studio offers is normally easy and seamless to set up for users. Normally, when there is an error with YouTube live-streaming, something did not complete correctly during the initial set-up. The best way to remedy this is to completely remove the connection between YouTube and Switcher, and then to reconnect them together.

Step One: Unlink YouTube From Switcher

To unlink your YouTube account from Switcher Studio, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Outputs tab in the lower right area of the main device.
  2. Tap the blue "+" icon in the upper right of this area.
  3. Select "YouTube" from the dialog box then select “Unlink Your YouTube Account”.

Step Two: Log Into The Switcher Studio Website

  1. Navigate to switcherstudio.com.
  2. Click "Log In" from the top-right corner.
  3. Log in with your email address and password used for your Switcher Studio account.
  4. Click on the orange "Link Account" icon beside YouTube in the "Linked Accounts Panel".

Step Three: Relink YouTube To Switcher

  1. You should see the YouTube logo now in the center of the page. Underneath the logo, click on "Link Account".
  2. Enter in the email address and password associated with your YouTube account. (NOTE: This may not be the same as your Switcher Studio login information).
  3. You will get an alert saying that Switcher Studio wants to manage your YouTube account. Click "Allow". Create a new YouTube event. 

Return To The Switcher Studio App

  1. Reopen Switcher Studio on your main switching device, and select "Use As Switcher".
  2. In the Outputs tab, you should see your new event's name that was created above. If you do not, swipe your finger down on the Outputs section to refresh the screen.
  3. Still in the Outputs tab, tap on "YouTube" to make sure that there is a blue checkmark next to YouTube.
  4. Go live!
