YouTube has expanded its live-streaming capabilities to any channel with more than 1000 subscribers.

As YouTube explains, key features of their live-streaming includes:

  • You get real-time transcoding in the cloud, so you only need to send them your highest quality stream and they make it instantly available in all resolutions and device formats
  • You can show multiple camera angles, add closed captions, and insert ads and slates
  • Viewers can watch the live stream from any device, get the best quality constantly adjusting to their Internet connection, and can skip back and forth in the live stream

To see if you're eligible, go to your Account Features page and see if there is an "Enable" button under Live. Read more here on the YouTube Creator Blog.
