If you want to edit or delete the added stream, then click on the three-dot menu and update the information for any corrections before you go live. No edits can be made once the event is streaming.

4. Points to keep in mind :

  • The stream resolution for any session streamed on Youtube is 720p.
  • Once streaming has begun, it has nothing to do with host/co-host bandwidth, as the host/co-host only triggered the start session, which starts the streaming as well.
  • For every mapped session, a new post is created and streamed.
  • It is recommended not to take any breaks for a session that is being streamed, as if the break gets extended for more than 2 minutes, a new post would be published on your YouTube page/profile.
  • If the session was ended by the event host, the YouTube live stream would stop immediately.


It is advisable not to use any copyrighted content while streaming, as it may block your live streaming on the YouTube platform.

This issue can sometimes occur when you have requested access to streaming on YouTube, which takes 24 hours to be enabled.


Once the 24 hours have passed and the YouTube streaming access is enabled, go to the YouTube studio and click on the Create button > Go Live > Stream on the top-left and create a test stream. Lastly, refresh your Airmeet event and retry setting up the streaming process.

Also, make sure that you are using the correct channel URL in case of multiple YouTube accounts.
