I Cannot Stream To YouTube

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 Account”.

Step Two: Log Into The Switcher Studio Website

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 "Sign-In With Google 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".

Return To The Switcher Studio App

1

Reopen Switcher Studio on your main switching device, and select "Use As Switcher".
