YouTube 4K Live Streaming
Live Stream your video production to YouTube in 4K
Earlier this week, YouTube announced that it would start allowing 4K streaming to its platform. Previously you could stream to Youtube in 4K but would only display in 2560 x 1440 and then allow you access the recorded stream in 4K. In order to stream in 4K you’ll need to use the Events section and select 4K as your streaming quality. This is a pretty big deal as they’re streaming and transcoding 4K video in real time! Keep in mind that this is in BETA and is very new new so it may not be perfect. Remember that it’s going to take a WHOLE LOT OF BANDWIDTH to do! You’ll need a 20MBPS upload connection as a minimum, even then you may have some issues. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to live stream to YouTube in 4K using vMix.
Firstly you’ll need to create a new event.
