YouTube is constantly changing, The information in this document is valid as of April 2021.

If you notice a change, please let is know in the forum.

In order to live stream to YouTube, you need to comply with the live streaming requirements.

Once you’ve made sure your channel allows live streaming, follow the procedure below to schedule up a live stream in YouTube Studio, set up a Live Streaming destination in mimoLive and start your stream.

Please note there are special steps you need to take to stop the stream again.

Scheduling a live stream on YouTube

To get started, log in to YouTube and go to the Studio. Then, click on the Go Live button:

44f56820 d329 4677 ad35 a64a9b5df010

This will take you to your stream page.

Look for the “Manage” button on the left and click it:

12764740 759f 41f8 9415 38e13cd177e6

Now, find the Schedule Stream button on the right:

508fc11d 40cd 41f2 99b0 fc0c691676be

If you’ve set up a stream before, you will be asked if you want to use that as a template. If you get this message, click on Create New:

332a1c53 bc2f 4fb0 8c22 7f8ac0a030b9

Enter the Title (and remember it because you will later use it in mimoLive to identify where you stream to), choose the visibility, enter a descrioption and make sure you select the proper “Made for kids” setting. Then click Create Stream:

71c2b26d 5250 41dc ac97 184412d675c6

At the time of this writing, YouTube Studio will take you then directly to the detail view of the stream where you can set additional parameters.


This is where you can reduce the latency for your stream to improve interaction. Low Latency means, your audience will only have a short delay in the stream between you doing or saying something and the viewers seeing it. Normal latency means up to 30 seconds. Reducing the latency also reduces the compression quality of the stream.

!Here you can also add a longer delay to comply with government regulations in some countries.

If you schedule a stream for the future and want to come back later, once you enter the YouTube Studio, find the Manage button again and select the scheduled stream from the list to get back to the stream details.
