Craig, Error Connecting to YouTube?
on Jun 4, 2013 at 4:51:15 pm

Hey Craig, I am getting an error when trying to link to a YouTube account to stream to a Google+ Hangout. Usually I am getting HTTP Error 401, but sometimes it is an Error 1. I am logged into the account using Firefox and allowed permissions. Any thoughts?

Chuck

Need more information such as Wirecast version number. You should be on 4.3.
It's not clear what your issue is since to use Wirecast with Google+ Hangouts you'd need to use Virtual Camera Output. Wirecast itself doesn't log into the account for that.

That's where I am confused. Client is saying they use Wire cast with YouTube to stream to Google+. Is there a different way to do this?

I am upgrading to version 3.0 now.

You can't "stream" to Google+. It requires a virtual camera. Google+ does the rest.
This is not the same as a YouTube Partner account with streaming enabled. Entirely different technology.

Wirecast is at version 4.3

Sorry Craig trying to do this on my phone, and remoting into another machine...Okay Wire cast is upgraded to version 4.3

This Google+ thing is a mess, no wonder no one uses it.

Google+ Hangouts requires using Wirecast Virtual Camera. Google does their own encoding.
YouTube Partnership allows streaming in which you (Wirecast) does the encoding.

With Google+ you are logged in through your browser, not Wirecast. Wirecast Virtual Camera shows up jus as if it were a webcam.
With Partnership you set up an "Event" and log into your account from Wirecast.

Booth result in a stream to one's YouTube channel but are different technology.

Wirecast for YouTube 4.3 supports both.

AH-HA (Lightbulb goes off) So we aren't going YouTube to Hangout, it is Hangout to YouTube using Wirecast and Virtual Camera...

Oh thank you Wise, Wirecast Guru!

There has been a recent update to YouTube with livestreaming capacity.
If you have over 1000 subscribers, you are able to apply for access to YouTube Live.
Wirecast versions now support YouTube. All the settings are in the broadcast settings.

Just to be clear, the original poster was referring to Google+ Hangouts which continue to require using Wirecast Virtual Camera.
