When you launch Gamecaster for the first time, it will ask you to connect to one of the three main streaming platforms: Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube:



Click on Connect with YouTube to get started, and this opens up either YouTube's login page so you can log in to your account, or an authorization page if you're already logged in. From this page, you can select the account and channel that you want to stream to, then click Allow:



One important thing to check here is that the account and channel you selected needs to be validated and approved for live streaming. You can find out more information here: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2474026

Take note that it may take up to 24 hours for YouTube to enable your channel to live stream!

To disconnect your YouTube account, simply click on the X from this screen, after which we will remove your information from your Gamecaster account after three (3) days.
