GoPro Hero 8 YouTube livestream issue

I recently got a GoPro Hero 8 and wanted to livestream to my YouTube channel.

 

I ensured that livestreaming is enabled on my YouTube account which it has been, I have checked settings on my live dashboard (or now its called control room) and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary.

 

I am unsure if this is a GoPro issue or a compatibility issue with the new YouTube control room.

 

The camera is setup, I select go live and start the event and the YouTube channel just says "Waiting for <my youtube name>"... even though I am broadcasting from my GoPro.  I tested this out with Facebook live streaming and facebook live streaming works so I know its not a camera issue.

 

Has anyone got YouTube live streaming to work?

YouTube requires 1000 followers to enable LIVE.

It's something Google or GoPro doesn't make very transparent.

 

My apologies if someone already responded to this.

Youtube have restriction from mobile device and bad news GoPro in that list. Easy way for bypass this problem is change meta-name device send to youtube server, but i think gopro team will not help you and you can use restream service for do it.
