You will notice a visibility toggle button next to YouTube and Facebook, allowing you to stream privately to a YouTube channel or a Facebook profile.
The visibility toggle only works for YouTube channels and Facebook profiles (not Facebook Groups or Pages). By default, Facebook makes all pages public.
Visibility streaming options to YouTube.
For YouTube channels, you can choose between three states, public, private, or unlisted. When you start the live stream, YouTube will publish your video in your chosen state; the status will display below the video playback.
Click the toggle button to cycle through the desired state.
- Green means the live video stream will be Public.
- Blue means unlisted video will stream on YouTube
- Gray means that it will be private on YouTube.
Remember, an Unlisted YouTube video is still public but will not be displayed on the search results. Anyone with the link will be able to view the unlisted video.
When you Go Live to the YouTube destination, the video will be private and only visible to people with log-in credentials for the YouTube channel.
The word "private" and a closed lock will display below the YouTube video.
