Unable to livestream via gopro app. Claims no 1000 subs on youtube

[ New ]

Hi,

 

I've been trying to livestream to youtube via gopro quick, but the app says that i dont have 1000+ subs for mobile livestream. Live works normal with phone and just tested RTMP and it seems to work just fine. So why does the app says that i dont have enough subs? Is it because i'm using a brand account thats linked to my personal account (which does not have any subs)? And if so, is there any way to fix this? 

 

Cheers

-EP

Hi @fireyjump15013

 

Does the channel have the required subscribers?

 

Heads Up: YouTube requires channels to have at least 1,000 subscribers in order to live stream from a mobile device to their platform. If you meet this criteria, you will need to enable live streaming on your YouTube channel. This can take up to 24 hours to activate.

Check out How to live stream from your GoPro for reference.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Hi @fireyjump15013

 

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We have recently released an update for the GoPro Quik app.

Make sure to restart your phone before testing it again.

 

Thanks!

Nope. Update didn't do a thing. I assume I'm not the only one who uses brand account. Does anyone else have problems with brand account and mobilestream via gopro?

Thanks for getting back to us.

To confirm, do you have the 2000+ subscribers on the brand account or the main account?

 

Regards,

Ej

Thanks - it would be great to get a fix. I would much rather stream the events from my GoPro rather than my phone. Your stabilization is much better!

Yep, and you can place camera freely and read chat meanwhile.
