Want to announce your live show a few days in advance? Let's check how to do it in the Be.Live studio!
Note, If you want to stream a scheduled show with Be.Live it has to be scheduled in your Be.Live studio as well. At this point it's not possible to link it to a show that was already scheduled directly on YouTube.

First things first, let's make sure your YouTube account is verified. It will take you a few clicks, simply go to youtube.com/verify, you can also check our guide for help.
Note, the verification process usually takes up to 24 hours.

STEP 1. As always, open Chrome or Safari browser on your computer and go to https://be.live/ . Now click Start Broadcasting (you may need to create your Be.Live account first). 

STEP 2. Click Set destination > Select destination > YouTube

Once you press on Youtube, you will choose Google Account to connect with Be.Live.
You can go live either to your Personal or Branded Channel.

Then click Allow to give Be.Live permissions to the Google account (No worries, Be.Live WILL NOT post without your permission). 

This is a standard agreement for YouTube/Google when giving permission to a third party app. It only means that you will have access to your YouTube channel and be able to create/edit shows, access comments and delete your shows directly from your Be.Live account. 

STEP 3. Now click on the "Schedule" button near YouTube. Once you do that, please, fill all the needed details: set time, upload cover image, add title (make sure it's not more than 100 symbols)  and description for your broadcast, select stream Privacy level. The optimal ratio for images used in scheduled broadcast posts is 16:9, e.g. 1280x720 and doesn't exceed 3 mb, make sure the file's name is written in Latin letters and doesn't contain symbols. 

STEP 4. Don't forget to click SAVE to actually schedule your broadcast! You can check what it looks like on YouTube by clicking on the broadcast title in the studio (it will redirect you to this post on YouTube).
