How To Go Live Stream on YouTube with Less than 1000 Subscribers


I finally took the courage and guts to make my first ever YouTube live stream a couple of days ago, yay! It was bit challenging for me as my topic was all over the place. I wanted to showcase life updates while I was getting ready for the day, although it was almost midday that time, but I wanted to look presentable to the viewers. I took the time to make a list on my head on what to discuss and share which I think is a good way but I thought of making a list next time I do this again...so I won't get lost. 

While I was searching on how to go live on YouTube using my mobile phone it prompted there that I am not eligible for that feature because my subscribers were less than 1000, so look for ways and checked the laptop for that feature and bam! I can go live using the laptop, woohoo! 

So I made this tutorial to help others who didn't know this feature on YouTube, you can cast live streaming or go live using your laptop or desktop. It's in Taglish (Tagalog and English) language with caption. 

In this video I used my MacBook Air Facetime HD camera, Xiaomi headset microphone and with no external lights...I will improve the sound and the quality on the coming videos. 

I hope this tutorial can help you to get through YouTube video uploads via live streaming. If you find this post helpful kindly visit my vlog by clicking the video image above. 

Thank you so much! 


Stay safe and be healthy!

  2. Interesting, I didn't know that YouTube has a restriction for streaming live using phone if we have less than a 1000 subscribers. But there are many options nowadays that would allow people to go live quite easily. Or maybe they have restrictions too.
