Rookie Needs Help Quickly: I'm doing my 2nd episode of Scott Ott Show tonight, and hoping to avoid the problem that beset last week's premiere. I'd like to create the livestreaming event on YT, and then post the link to my friends here, FB and Twitter in advance. But last week at showtime I couldn't figure out how to actually make the scheduled event go LIVE. (I'm using Wirecast as my encoder.) I wound up scrapping the scheduled event and using the simple "go live now" feature, 10 minutes into the show, and then posted the new link on social media.
Should I just forget the live event scheduling, and use the easy way? If I do that, I suppose I need to update the information each week? [Here's that page: http://www.youtube.com/c/ScottOtt/live
At least my friends have only one URL to remember.
I hope this question makes sense, but if not, please school me in how to ask it better. Upshot, what's the most effective way to do this.
