Note: Before you get started, ensure that your YouTube channel is verified and meets all live streaming requirements. If you’ve never streamed before, you can request streaming access which takes 24 hours to get approved. Learn how to enable live streaming for your channel.

Once your request has been approved, you can go live through Zuddl.
