Stream to YouTube Live with Mevo

Mevo producers can choose YouTube as a streaming destination for their events, either to a YouTube event or via YouTube's Stream Now option. Users can also utilize RTMP to stream to their YouTube destination. For more Youtube Live information and restrictions please click here

RTMP Built-In

Going Live to YouTube using RTMP

To stream to YouTube using RTMP you can do so by first logging into your YouTube profile. 

Press your profile image and go to "YouTube Studio"

This link ( will also take you there for your convenience.

Once the YouTube Studio page loads you will see on the top right of your screen a "Go Live" icon. Press this icon.


At the top of the next screen, you will see 3 options, you want to select "Stream", and you will see options to put in your stream details. Press "Create Stream".


You will then see this window. These are the details you need to insert in your Mevo app. Take this information down both the stream key and your stream URL then press "Done"


Inside your Mevo app, press the red button in the lower-left part of your screen.


Select the "RTMP" icon listed, then press "New RTMP".


Fill out your details, the name can be anything you want. We recommend something easy and unique to distinguish from other sources you may add. Paste in your stream URL as well as your stream key then press "Save".


This is simply a name so you can identify what RTMP profile for future use. Your platform handles the actual stream title, as well as stream description.


You will now see the source you added, select it and a green checkmark will appear, then press "Go Live".


You are now live on your YouTube channel. 

Remember to publish the stream on YouTube. The Mevo is sending your feed to YouTube but you must publish the stream. To do this in YouTube Studio press "Go Live" on the top right of the screen.


Troubleshooting Steps

I don't see "Stream Now" as an option or my event is "Unsupported"
As of September 2020, YouTube has removed the "Stream Now" option of YouTube Live. You can still stream live using events.
