Solution How to Embed Livestream on Site with Restream.io and YouTube

This is the basic steps to follow to do what I did in my video

NUMBER 1 Find Your Channel ID Get the Channel ID from https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced. Not the User ID!

NUMBER 2 – CHANGE THE CHANNEL ID IN THIS CODE AND EMBED IT TO YOUR SITE (the bold part needs to be changed to your channel ID, NOT the user ID)

<iframe width=”1280″ height=”720″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/live_stream?channel=UCZIErbHLrGGnhX05x60HORA frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

NUMBER 3 – Create and page on your site and embed that code! (optional: Add some buttons to your direct livestream page as well)

NUMBER 4 – Customize the Video Player Size for YOUR SITE! (Standard YouTube Video)
Recommended dimensions: 426 x 240 (240p), 640 x 360 (360p), 854 x 480 (480p), 1280 x 720 (720p), 1920 x 1080 (1080p), 2560 x 1440 (1440p) and 3840 x 2160 (2160p). Aspect ratio is 16:9 (auto adds pillarboxing if 4:3). Max file size is 128GB or 12 hours, whichever is less.

NUMBER 5 – Schedule a Livestream inside your youtube channel and add a generic title and a placeholder thumbnail. This will appear on your video page as the placeholder…. see my example at https://www.worshiptheking.com/livestream
