There are a few ways how you can do it:
- Create an event using Restream Events
- Schedule event on YouTube and connect it to Restream using either automatic or manual connection
Create an event using Restream Events
Restream Events is a brand new feature that allows you to schedule a live stream in advance and share the link with your audience! Restream Events enable you to set a thumbnail for the event and customize the title and description for your streams.
That is a super fast and easy way of creating an event and we encourage everyone to use it!
Tip: When you create an event through Restream Events this automatically creates an event on YouTube as well. You don't need to do any other actions on YouTube side.
Schedule event on YouTube and connect it to Restream using an automatic connection
- Connect YouTube to Restream. You can learn how to do it here.
- Head over to your Youtube Studio and click "Schedule Stream".
3. From here you want to select:
Stream Title - This is how you would be able to find the event in Restream account. Keep in mind that you still can adjust the title and description of your stream from here.
Stream privacy - public, unlisted, or private. If you are planning a closed Event (invitations only) or you are running a test, we recommend setting it to unlisted, otherwise, please choose public.
Choose the category and date of your event. Choose the audience. Please keep in mind that selecting "yes, it's made for kids" category it may require additional approval from YouTube side.
4. Hop over back to Restream Dashboard and select the Event you have just created from the drop-down menu when you select YouTube.
You are now ready to stream to your custom YouTube Event using Restream!
Share the link to YouTube Event you have just created from YouTube account and invite people to your stream! Or follow that link to watch your stream if it's set to unlisted or private.
Schedule event on YouTube and connect it to Restream using manual connection
Note: We recommend connecting YouTube automatically, as this will allow you to retain Restream APIs (such as Restream Analytics, Chat, etc) which are not available with Manual connection.
Please follow the steps in this article to manually connect YouTube to Restream and schedule an event.
