So you want to be the next rising YouTube star? YouTube has made it possible for live streamers to get on board their biggest video-sharing platform. XSplit Broadcaster will power your live interaction with your subscribers and here, we’ll show you how.


Step 1: Signing In

When launching XSplit Broadcaster for the first time, you'll be asked to Sign In or Sign Up for an XSplit account to use the app. Click the Sign In button if you've already created an account. And if you haven't signed up yet, go here to register an XSplit account with your email.

Once you've clicked sign in, the app will use your browser to authenticate your XSplit account so make sure that it is logged in on our browser site.


Step 2: Setting Up Your Presentation

Now, you’ll be brought to the main XSplit Broadcaster window. Here, you can add sources, which are anything that you want to present in your stream or recording such as your game, overlays, or Twitch widgets. You can learn more about adding Sources by clicking here.


Step 3: Setting Up Your YouTube Output

Before we set up your YouTube Live broadcast on XSplit Broadcaster, you will need to enable the live streaming option in your YouTube channel first. Enabling this for the first time will require a 24-hour wait period before you can start.

If you have done that already, let’s now set up your YouTube output! Go to the Broadcast menu and select YouTube to configure it.


Step 4: Starting Your YouTube Output

You’re now ready to start a stream. Go on the Broadcast menu and select your created YouTube output.

Starting the output will open YouTube's Broadcast Details. This will let you fill in your live post details such as title, description, tags, and privacy. Click Start broadcast to go live.

Alternatively, you can also start your stream by clicking on the Stream button at the top bar section of Broadcaster.

A red status bar should appear at the top of the XSplit Broadcaster application window showing that you’re broadcasting live.
