If you use YouTube live often, please be advised that the old (current) platform will be replaced with a much improved, new one very soon!
The New platform includes:
- 24/7 events!
- Dynamic bandwidth adjustment
- Real-time transcoding
YouTube is slowly rolling out this new feature to all partners. You will at some point receive a message at the top of your video manager page that looks something like this:
After you accept your invitation to start using the new YouTube live platform, the new platform will become the default for each of your new live events. Then, the old platform will go away completely. So please start moving your events over to the new platform as soon as possible.
