Hey you guys! I’m leaving this video up so you can see, if you want, my ‘behind-the-scenes’ learning curve of trying to figure out livestreaming utilizing different software, lol. It is my intention to be open and honest at all times with my experiences of being a YouTuber, and that includes livestreaming to the platform. In the hopes that my experience can help anyone else going through the same journey, and/or having the same learning curve to go through as me.
Specifically, live streaming through the YouTube App itself has been a bit of a challenge, in the sense that, if I want to do anything with the stream other than just let it be. To the point that I’ve finally decided I need to experiment utilizing a streaming app, to see if it will garner me a better user experience from my end. But other than my end - it does affect the viewer experience just the same as well - because, if I’m having a problem on my end, I’m not able to provide the best quality stream to the viewer. And that I consider a definite problem. And it’s happened enough that I need to figure out a solution.
I’ve had Streamlabs for a long time, but didn’t want to use it. I wanted to stick with the YouTube App. But now that I’ve completed a bunch of livestreams on the platform, I realize and understand why streamers utilize other streaming software. A couple examples of difficulties I have been having while streaming through YouTube are:
1) The Zoom feature - which relates to number two below.
2) Ability to See and Read the Live Chat in real time.
How they relate, and, let me explain:
If I attempt to zoom in and zoom out, even one time during a stream, the live chat comments all reappear, and replicate upon themselves. So, then with each new live chat that comes in after the zoom, I am attempting to read the chat over a different chat from earlier, making the chat completely unreadable. It’s so confusing of an issue to have, I can barely even explain the issue in writing, lol. It seems like a bug with the YouTube app from the streamer end, but it’s been happening for a while, and I do hope it gets fixed soon. Or, it could be my phone, or anything else that I don’t even fully understand. But, either way, it’s affecting my ability to live stream successfully because I cannot read the chat, thus, I cannot respond to chat appropriately. And to me, the whole point of live streaming is to be able to chat with others in real time.
Thus, leading to this stream right here. This is simply a TEST stream. And - guess what?! My first impressions, from a short stream, are that I LOVE Streamlabs! Comparing two streams back to back, from my end it’s so much more user-friendly and pleasing to the eye. I could see my chat, and I could zoom in and out - although - I must admit I was afraid to try zooming - lol.
So thanks for allowing me to test this streaming service with y’all! I did not want to wait until my upcoming weekend streams to try out Streamlabs for the very first time. I’m much more of a ‘let’s do this and do it right now’ type of person when it comes to trying something new to me and/or different. I do love the challenge of furthering my personal growth and development, and if that means from the technological side of things, I’m all for it, even if I don’t fully understand what I’m about to learn.
So - please - let me know! Have you used Streamlabs before? I'd love to know how you like it? And do you recommend it? Or, what other streaming service(s) have you utilized? What is your user experience?
Thanks for being here and I look forward to seeing you and chatting with you this weekend!
Filmed LIVE on Wednesday, October 26, 2023 in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
