How to live stream to a YouTube Live event
YouTube Live Events allows live streaming of video to your audience via YouTube, similar to other commercial Content Distribution Networks (CDNs). The data sent to YouTube Live starts as an encoded video stream and is transcoded by YouTube into the format(s) and resolutions it needs. Pearl and Pearl-2 work with YouTube Live Events by providing the encoded video stream. Using a feature called RTMP (real-time messaging protocol), your live broadcast, lecture or event is pushed from your Pearl system to YouTube.
