Super Chat will replace Fan Funding, the site’s previous tool for viewers to pay creators.
You Tube’s product manager Barbara Macdonald said the goal for Super Chat is to help fans reach out to their favorite You Tubers in real time, and vice versa.
When you’re done, stop streaming in your encoder and you’ll go offline. New viewers will see the changes instantly and existing viewers will see the change when they refresh your stream.
If your live stream ingestion is struggling, it may be due to a misconfigured DNS sending the stream to a distant geographical location.
Google has connected all of its services, so the live event you start on You Tube will be broadcast through your channel, your Google profile and any site that supports embedding You Tube videos.
Live chats can work great for presentations you want save for later viewing on your You Tube channel.
In the Ingestion Settings tab, download the "Flash Media Encoder XML File" to your desktop.
Google's You Tube has expanded its live streaming service to all users in good standing so you can now chat live on You Tube through the Google Hangouts On Air service.
If you're on Pay As You Go, you'll need to have topped up at least once in the last 90 days.
If you have a popular You Tube channel already, select it so your fans can quickly join you.
If you're new to You Tube videos, select the option that lists your Gmail account and Google name because this will make it easier for your friends to find you.
Soon, when someone goes on a live stream, you’ll see a dollar bill symbol in the chat window.
Clicking this button opens up a slider that lets you set the dollar amount you’d like to send the You Tuber.
After making a payment, the comment will be highlighted in a different color to help live streamers flag a paid message.
