Set up your live streaming encoder

Before you can start streaming on YouTube, you need to download encoding software.

What is an encoder? An encoder is a device or application that takes your content and converts it into a digital format to stream on YouTube. In other words, encoders digitize videos and send it to YouTube to be live streamed to your viewers. Some encoders are stand-alone devices that take audio and video signal from a Camera or a PC. Other encoders are software applications running on a PC that capture video from a webcam or the computer.

Encoding (vs. webcam streaming) is best for live streams that include:

Sharing your screen or broadcasting your gameplay.
Using external audio/video hardware.
Managing an advanced production (like using multiple cameras and audio inputs).

Looking for an easier way to stream? If you don’t want to use an encoder, you can live stream via webcam and mobile.
