Webcaster X1 for YouTube user guide

Set stream privacy

Before streaming to live to your YouTube channel using Stream Now with Webcaster X1, you can choose to set the initial privacy setting of your video. It's easy!

You can only set the privacy for Stream Now. Live Event streams use the video privacy you set when you created the event.

To configure the privacy of your live video stream you need:

    • Your Webcaster X1 for YouTube
    • An HDMI display (that supports 1080p video) connected to your Webcaster X1
    • A USB mouse connected to your Webcaster X1 (must be connected before boot-up)

  • If not already on the Preferences page, click the Preferences icon at the lower right corner of the screen; the preferences screen opens.
  • Click Privacy in the YouTube Details section.
  • Select an initial privacy setting for your live stream.
  • Note: When you first get your Webcaster X1 for YouTube, the default privacy setting is Private to avoid accidentally streaming something you didn't mean to stream. On all subsequent uses after your first use, the default privacy setting is whatever you set last time.
  • If you are done with YouTube settings for your broadcast, right click to exit the Preferences menu.
Your USB mouse or keyboard must be connected to Webcaster X1 for YouTube before boot-up.
