GoPro Hero 7 live to YouTube not working from iPhone

I’m able to initiate the live stream successfully, but when I click the preview the stream and open YouTube app and view my channel it shows I’ve started a stream but it says “waiting for user” with the cracked squiggly play button. Anyone successfully streaming to YouTube from an iPhone?

@hardywater04550, by any chance, do you have over 1000 subscribers on your YouTube channel? We just recently received an update that Youtube has newly made a change to mobile livestreaming requirements. In order to stream while mobile (through the Youtube App natively or via the GoPro) you must have 1000 subscribers. Info can be found here https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2853834?hl=en.

@hardywater04550, I was able to successfully live stream to YouTube using an iPhone 8. If you enabled live streaming on your YouTube channel, it can take up to 24 hours for it to be activated. If you still can’t live stream, check your YouTube account settings to make sure you haven’t been banned or blocked from live streaming.

My YouTube account has been enabled for live streaming for 6 or 8 months and I’ve live streamed a lot to it just not from my GoPro that I just bought yesterday. My account isn’t banned or blocked. My phone is a iPhone 7 Plus. Not sure if that matters.....but I sure hope not.
