How to stream your IP camera to Youtube Live with LiveBox247

With Youtube Live, there is a simple to set up and free service to host your IP camera live stream and embed it into your website (and also show it in your youtube).

1. Get the camera stream URL

The video stream URL is usually visible in your camera settings in streaming/video/h.264/RTSP sections. If you cannot find it there, a short google search of you camera model/vendor and ‘RTSP’ or ‘video stream’ should help. Or install software Onvif Device Manager on your PC. Open it, you will see your RTSP url like this

H.264 encoding is required.

The URL needs to be accessible from LiveBox247 servers. This probably requires a port forwarding, dynamic dns setup on your side. Or a static IP – the best.

2. Set up Youtube

Go to https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard. At Stream Now, you will get RTMP URL with Stream name/key also.
