Going live on YouTube and other platforms is a great way to increase your traffic. Don’t feel confident enough to do so? You can still stream with your existing videos. YouLive for WordPress can help. It is a handy plugin that lets you go live on YouTube with pre-recorded videos. It relies on YouTube’s API to get it done.
YouLive works like a normal livestreaming software. Your live videos are saved to your YouTube video library. In order to get started, you just need sure your server has FFMPEG installed with allow_url_fopen, allow_url_include, and CURL enabled. Once setup, you can put live events on a schedule and customize live video’s titles and description.
