I’m using the BMD Atem Mini Pro for livestreaming a weekly church service to YouTube. I use the ‘scheduled stream’ feature of YouTube to preview the livestream during rehearsal, check sound levels, picture and network and so on, prior to go live, it’s a great feature. I do this from a Windows 10 laptop in Chrome, which serves no other purpose other than ‘going live’ and ending the stream.
I’d really like to eliminate the laptop from this setup. I know I could configure the livestream to auto start and end in YouTube, and I could go live from the ATEM Mini Pro, though I would lose the YouTube preview and test capability. It’s a little risky.
Thoughts ? Ideally the ATEM Mini Pro would have a ‘start stream’ and a ‘go live’ button, integrated with YouTube. I am not sure if the YouTube streaming protocols offer that level of control, but it would be an excellent feature.
Appreciate any ideas or alternatives people may have come up with.
