How to Live Stream YI 4K – to YouTube

To establish a live stream on YouTube you need a computer to see your custom URL.
Save it to your phone, so you can livestream without a computer afterwards!

1 – Go to your YouTube channel – creator studio – Live streaming – Stream now.
There you will find “Encoder Setup” with a Server URL & Stream name/key.
Copy the URL and include the key after a dash: e.g. rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2/••••••••

(as it is a unique key for each channel I can’t display my key here 😉 )

How to Live Stream YI 4K – to Facebook Page

Currently there is a workaround to live stream to your Facebook Page, as YI Action Camera App on Facebook is currently not officially certified. I hope this soon will be the case so you can add the App to your page and select it in YI Action App on your phone. Up to now use this method, which is only possible with the use of a computer:

1 – Go to the site: https://iag.me/socialmedia/broadcast-computer-facebook-live
Click the blue button: “Broadcast on Facebook Live”;
Select your Facebook Page to want to live stream;
Enter title, tags and other information;
Copy the link including the Stream Key (similar to YouTube):

5 – a QR Code is generated and displayed on your phone.
