My institution has a Youtube channel and we were planning to do live lectures in it. So I added one of my colleague as the manager of the channel.

But he can't find the option to do a live video from the channel. Is it because only the owner can do it? Is there a way through which the Manager or Editor can do a live video?


Yes, a Manager can definitely do Live videos. They're probably looking in the wrong place.

To set up or start a Live video on YouTube, go up to the top right and click on the Create button. There will be 2 options - Upload video and Go live

Then take it from there. It's as simple as that...

  • Mine was a personal account first, and when I added managers to it they were not able to go live. But when I made that channel a branded one, the managers were able to go live. – LFS Apr 15 '20 at 13:40
