Re: Church Webcasts using YouTube Live Streams

After review of the council given us regarding live-streaming, our stake's choice was to create a Stake YouTube Channel and freely publish it to the stake membership. There, they can find their own ward's meeting(s). All meetings have comments and live-chat turned off to avoid any unwanted disruptions. 60 seconds after a stream stops uploading, that video automatically changes to "Unlisted". After reviewing each video for quality, they are deleted - but not before making a "clone" of that meeting's settings for the following week. This keeps the RTMP URL the same from week to week making it easier for the ATS's assigned to each ward. (YouTube has a nice feature allowing you to create, name, and manage reusable stream keys. You even get a friendly warning if you happen to use the same key for different upcoming live events.)

The biggest advantage is a single URL where all the meetings in the stake can be found. Some bishops have chosen to include second-hour meetings, while others have not. The actual meeting links change each week, but the static pictures don't, making it simple for a member to find a particular meeting. When a meeting goes live, it's automatically moved from the "Upcoming" list to the "Live now" list, again, making it easy to find.

The stake president has indicated that in the near future he would like the YT Live links created as "Unlisted" from the start, then email the individual links to the ward bishop (or ATS) each week so they can send them to those who have a real need to stay home. Nothing from the above YT Live procedure will change, except one switch. Everything else will be exactly as before. The difference (of course), is the links to the videos will not be visible.

That's one way to encourage people to be on time for Church! :)
