A permanent URL for live channel stream


Howdy folks,

At one point, I had a fixed url to send to clients for my channel live stream. I found this in a YT user forum post. At some point, this url no longer works. The url offered by the Webcaster X2 changes, but older versions seem to keep working. I wonder if giving this url is the best bet, or there is some working version of youtube.com/“channel-id” that would be a safer bet.


I have previously used the youtube.com/channel/CHANNEL_ID/live and this works well. You can find your CHANNEL_ID at https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced


Hi Adam,

Thanks for the response. This is what I was using, but it no longer works for me. Might be some issue with my Youtube account. Or quite possibly, Google changed something and broke this functionality.

Thanks anyhow!
