Hi. I'm afraid the separation of Hangouts from Plus might have messed things up for me ... hopefully not.  Here's my situation:

-- I have my personal page: +Lisa Larson 
-- I am the moderator of a community: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/113413691824801704479
-- I have a business page: +Lisa Larson: Pawstalk Animal Communication & Reiki 
-- I have now made my business page a moderator on my community.
-- My business page is (mistakenly) attached to my youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/bigcaat
-- I want to do some HOA classes through my business page (limited to those who signed up)
-- I want to do some HOAs limited to the people in my community. 
-- I want both of these to end up on my Youtube page (which I probably should have connected to my personal page, but who knew it would separate everything) <sigh>

So. How do I do this? 
-- Do I originate everything from my business page, now that I have made myself a moderator on my community?
-- And can I still just original regular HOAs from my business page for my classes? Will they show up on Youtube like they always have?

Thanks for the input.

Hangouts on Air and Your G+ Community...
Used properly, Community Centered HOAs can add great value to your community.

Read more below and watch the linked free broadcast to see what we're talking about utilizing a valuable/unique implementation of HOAs in a Public Community setting.

Do you use Hangouts on Air as part of your Community Strategy?
Why would you want to use Community Centered HOAs?

Is your Google+ Public Community growing like you'd want it to be, or as engaged as you'd like? If not, utilizing Community Centered HOAs (CCHOAs) can make a big difference towards those goals.

When you utilize Community Centered Hangouts on Air you can:
► Increase the Size of your community
► Add value to your Brand
► Improve your community's Engagement
► Increase the Value of your community
► Help Focus the community
► Fully realize the Relationship Opportunities communities offer

Hangouts on Air (HOA) can add great value to the relationships we are fostering within Google Plus Communities. That value can be helpful to existing and new members of the community.

Live Discussion on Why CCHOAs are so Powerful
We'll be having a live video broadcast (HOA) discussing the use of CCHOAs within a community and why they seem to add so much momentum to a community on Tuesday April 28, 2015 @ 4pm EDT. Here's the link to sign up to view the free broadcast (either live or the recorded version) http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Hope you can make it live and will add questions/comments for us to feature as part of the broadcast, but if you must miss the live event, you can always watch the free video replay on that same HOA Event page: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Add the Community Centered HOA concept to your Community!
Turn your Google+ Community into the thriving place it was meant to be by employing the techniques and concepts we'll be highlighting in this Scheduled HOA Event: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA RSVP there.

Hangouts on Air Hosts can use the Cameraman App to help control what live viewers see and what the recorded video shows.
Ronnie Bincer originally shared:
 
Controlling the Broadcast Camera for Hangouts on Air
There are many ways that the Hangout on Air (HOA) Host can control what the live viewers see and what the recorded video shows for their HOA Broadcasts.

Using the Cameraman App is just one of them, but it is an option that gives HOA Hosts important controls like showing the filmstrip or not and hiding or showing guests at certain times. The Cameraman app is working behind the scenes when you use the highlighted thumbnail menus in the attached screenshot to show or hide guests in the broadcast.

To understand all the various options for controlling the HOA Broadcast Camera, you'll want to watch both hour long presentations (part 1 & part 2) made for Hangout Mastery members.

For only $47/month Hangout Mastery members gain access to scores of private training videos like Controlling the HOA Camera.

Members can get access to this series by clicking this link:
http://www.mastery.thehangouthelper.com/controlling-the-hoa-camera-part-1/

To join us in the membership community for fast and accurate answers to your Hangouts questions as well as access to live & recorded training sessions, signup at www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

May your HOA presentations be a wonderful way for you to communicate your message... they can be that for you once you master the technology which is why we made the Hangout Mastery membership. Hope to see you there!

By now you've probably heard that Google Helpouts are shutting down... but you can still have private consulting sessions using the Google Hangouts and Hangouts on Air tools.
 
Google Helpouts Replacement
The Google Helpouts tool/system is scheduled to shut down on April 20, 2015. If you are a helpouts provider, you can run your own...

I created a way to do private online consultations using Hangouts and Hangouts on Air long before Helpouts ever existed ...and it still works today.

My Hangout Mastery membership group has had access to this method for quite some time and you can too. I've got a 1 hr. training session showing you all the steps required and it includes other member's Q&A as well as their other ideas on what works for them.

Here is the link to get right to the training:
http://www.mastery.thehangouthelper.com/how-to-record-private-online-coaching-sessions/

As a member, you gain access to the above and much more
Besides that training session there are many more you'll have instant access to as a member. Plus you'll be able to join into a wonderful private community of HOA professionals that exists to help each other keep up to date on various items all related to Hangouts and Hangouts on Air (HOA).

The membership is a month to month system which you can cancel at any time. Right now the investment is $47/month. Check out some testimonials from members here: http://goo.gl/TvCvGE or ask anyone you know about Hangout Mastery. Learn more at the home page via www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

You can do your own private training sessions using Private HOAs. The systems you relied on via Helpouts are going away so why not learn how to use what we already have from Google for free. BTW, I use Paypal to collect payment for my training sessions and that is also discussed in the training referenced above. The one thing that is missing is the 'directory' site where people come to find you.

Router set up to help HOAs have even more bandwidth?

I have plenty of headroom for HOAs - 60down and 5 up, but I was wondering if there is a way to configure my router to make HOAs even better?

YouTube Tip number 178. If you can not get the youtube url you want. Of if you were like me and just picked a random url. You can buy your own domain name and have it redirect to your youtube channel like I did. www.angelocracy.com  . I did not buy my domain name from Google. But Google does sell domain names. Domain names are cheap. You can get one that easy to remember and show or say the link in your videos.

New YouTube Live Streaming options... change menu groupings for starting up Hangouts on Air via YouTube.
 
Hangouts on Air or Live Streaming via YouTube changes menus
Still rolling out to the world, but it looks like YouTube has Changed where we might start our HOAs.

You can still use the Google+ method to start up your HOA Events via the left sided "Hangouts" menu, but if you were used to starting up your Hangouts on Air (HOA) broadcasts via the YouTube interface, that is/will be different moving forward.

Live Streaming
The image below shows the change. The "Live Streaming" grouping visible via the Creator Studio now contains an Events menu which is replacing the Live Events menu that used to live under the "Video Manager" grouping.

Updated Streaming options
We can still use the Google+ HOA option to broadcast the easy way (known as "Quick") with others included in an interactive filmstrip. But there is a new version of Live Streaming still identified as "Custom" or started via the new "Stream now [Beta]" menu choice pictured below.

The updated "Stream now" choice of live streaming seems to be aimed at the Gamers market, and includes an option to "Optimize for Interaction (low latency)"

What it means for HOA Hosts
More to come as we see more roll out, but for HOA Hosts that use the YouTube Interface to start up their HOA Broadcasts, we'll simply need to look for a new menu grouping within YouTube (pictured here).

To learn why you'd use one HOA startup option (YouTube) vs. another (Google+) join into the Hangout Mastery paid membership http://www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

h/t: +Heather Kraafter for the alert to the change and for sharing her screen with me.

Important tip if you use Comment Tracker and the Lower Third together for your Hangouts on Air.
 
Using Comment Tracker & the Lower Third Together
The Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third app is commonly used together with the stand-alone Comment Tracker app. Here's a tip for using them together well.

The Comment Tracker adds great value to your HOA by allowing you to bring live viewer's comments into your show.

The stand-alone Comment Tracker tool (the green 'double bubble' version, not the one from the Toolbox) is used a lot since it allows the comments from HOA Events to be tracked where the version of the Comment Tracker that is part of the Hangout Toolbox does not.

The Comment Tracker Tip - load up the (1) Toolbox/Lower Third 1st and then turn on the (2) Stand-alone Comment Tracker tool. When done in this order, the display of the Comments (as shown here) will not include the lower third image.

If you want to add the branding of your lower third on top of the comments displayed, then turn on the comment tracker first, and there is a good chance the comments displayed will also show the lower third graphic as well (but it may cover up some of the comments).

Thanks to +Denise Wakeman for her cameo here ;-)
You can get the stand-alone comment tracker from this link:
http://www.allmyplus.com/comment-tracker/ it is created by +Gerwin Sturm ... Thanks Gerwin!

We offer full training on how to Master the Comment Tracker App (it can get kinda tricky making it work with events) as part of the many training sessions offered to Hangout Mastery members.

Join us in the Hangout Mastery membership to get the Comment Tracker training and much more by visiting www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery and signing up for membership.

Get the training you want from the large list of recorded and live training sessions, and join into the included private Community. Stay around as long as you like with our monthly membership model & you can cancel at any time. Hope to see you on the inside!

+Kurt von Schleicher the text part of Hangouts is somewhat similar to Messenger, maybe the ability to make phone calls via Hangouts as well, but the key differentiator IMO it the ability hangouts have to turn the message/text area into a video call with those in the 'room' and then go back to texting at any time... over and over again.

Take your Hangout on Air (HOA) broadcasts and Embed the HOA Video on your Website - learn how plus a few tips with this easy to follow article.
 
How to Embed HOA Videos on Your Website
You work hard to make your Hangout on Air (HOA) broadcasts worth watching... why not use them to drive traffic to your website?

People watching videos on your website increases 'time on site' - a good factor to improve your website's ranking. And when visitors stay on your site, there is a better chance they'll look around and find more of the things you want them to find there!

Check out the detailed steps in the linked article for locating the HOA video embed code so you can easily include your HOA videos right on your site. We cover multiple ways to find the embed code no matter which method you used to create your Hangout on Air broadcast.

One Embed Code, 3 Uses
It is the same video embed code that is used to display the pre-show countdown (pictured here) as well as the live broadcast and the recorded version of the show... all depending on when the viewer clicks the play arrow.

I've even shared a little known tip that makes it easier to modify the HOA video embed code for the next video you want added to your site.

Get More Mileage from your HOA Videos
Not everyone watches your Hangouts on Air live so get some extra value from your HOAs by adding them to your website so they can 'live on' well into the future.

Here's the direct link to the article:
