How to Livestream from a Mobile
How to live stream from a mobile device so this is going to work for both iPhone and Android devices and any other mobile device that you may be using it’s going to be working for phones and tablets and whatever it may be so.
I’ve already written an article on how to live stream on YouTube from your desktop client using OBS if you’re going to want to know how to do you can check it here.
We’re going to be focusing more on the mobile side of things so what you’re going to want to do is go ahead and open up your YouTube app.
Then what you’re going to want to see there in the upper portion of your YouTube screen there you’re going to see the little record button that used to be this little camera icon here was just for recording and it wasn’t for going live.
Now if you tap on it you’re going to see another option there with the little circle and the little outline lines on the outside of it it’s going to say go live.
Click on the go-live button or tap it there. One other pro tip by the way is to slide up on your iPhone or find however you can do this on your device and turn airplane mode on make sure Wi-Fi is connected so make sure your Wi-Fi is on and airplane mode is on as well that way you’re not going to get any phone calls or distractions during your wonderful live stream.
Now let’s go to settings the little gear icon in the upper right-hand side of the screen this is going to allow you to choose a different few different settings you’re going to have the tab there that says allow chat if you want to allow chat just make that go to the right if you want to enable age restriction.
If it’s going to be something with profanity or something that people under the age of 18 shouldn’t be viewing go ahead and enable age restriction.
Go back to where you see this option here by tapping on the left arrow in the upper left-hand side of the screen then what you’re going to want to do is tap on the option that says create a title so go ahead and title your video here and then once you get a title you’re going to see the big red.
The next button come available to you they’re something that a lot of creators are doing now is they’re going to their emojis and they’re using this little red dot here that looks like a record button which I think’s fairly clever so if you want to do that navigate to your emojis on your keyboard and it’s going all the way to the right and you’re going to see a little red record button there but obviously.
I’m not going to do that now if you wanted to you could click the drop-down menu next to the word that says public and that’s going to allow you to choose whether or not you want this live stream to be public or unlisted which I’m not sure why you would want to do that but if you do that option is available for you once you’re done with your title you then can click the red Next button.
Now if you wanted to you could turn your camera around to where it’s not looking at you like the selfie camera you can click the little rotating arrows in the upper right-hand side of the screen and now you can see my camera that’s going to be showing you what I’m looking at but I’m going to go ahead and for the most part, you’re probably going to want it to be pointed at you in your direction.
Then click the red Next button there it’s then going to give you the options to hey smile for a thumbnail that’s hideous let’s retake it go ahead and click the retake button right there smile for the camera just like that right there if you’re satisfied with your thumbnail you can actually go and click the share button just like this here and a bunch of other platforms is going to come available to you and you can swipe left or right.
And choose whether or not you want to copy the link to share that link or if you want to share on Facebook or Gmail or email whatever you want to do you can share that from that share button obviously if you want to retake your thumbnail click the retake button there but if you are satisfied with everything you’re ready to go and remember you must obviously.
I thought this was something that people would already know but make sure that you are logged in to your YouTube channel that you want to stream from and then when you’re good to go click the go-live button and my free means you will be live as live can be it will take maybe five to ten seconds to load and then once you’re live you’re going to see a few different options here what’s up guys.
I’m live you’re going to see how long you’ve been live in the upper left-hand corner you were also going to be seeing how many people have joined you in the upper left-hand corner and then if anyone has liked the video you will also see that by the thumbs up icon you see right above me or right here also you can click the finish button.
When you’re done also have the little rotate camera in the lower left-hand corner you have the chatroom which will be the little chat icon here where you can see all of the messages coming through and then you also have the edit or the little magic wand button there that will actually show you and it will allow you to change your different camera styles glamour shots and you can do dance parties and a bunch of wild stuff right.
So again that is how you do it within the mobile device when you’re done click the Finish button in the upper right hand corner it’ll say are you sure you’re done streaming hit the end button there it will wrap everything up with a little circle it will say finished.
It’ll let you know how long your live stream went for what the duration was the average watch time for the people who came the Pico concurrent viewers so the peak of which how many people were watching your stream new subscribers you got from the screen from the stream and that’s about it so that is how you live stream from the mobile device over on YouTube.
