Live stream a radio show on YouTube

For the last few weeks I have been trying something new as part of my radio show. We have been live streaming to YouTube from the studio.

Over the past year I’ve experimented with Periscope and more recently Facebook Live, both of which allow you to ‘broadcast’ from a smartphone. However, there are some limitations with these apps which have led me to explore other options.

I get pretty hyped up when I’m on air and regularly break out some dance moves while I’m behind the mic which I thought would be fun to share via a studio camera.

Using my Macbook Pro’s built in iSight camera and some free streaming software called OBS, I have been able to stream live video straight to YouTube for the entire duration of the two hour show.
