My streams always freeze or the app just closes while I am streaming

Recommended Posts

In my past streams YouTube would freeze or the app would close in the middle of the stream. What can I do to resolve this issue?

Equipment: Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Microphone, running on 4G LTE, Gimbal

Some things to try:

Ensure you are in a strong signal area.

Make sure you have the latest YouTube installed via the Play Store

Clear cache and and data for YouTube.  You'll need to log into YouTube again.  Settings/Apps/ YouTube/Storage/Clear cache and or data/storage.  You might be able to long press on YouTube from the app drawer.  If so, select app info from there.

Remove and reinstall YouTube.

Use something else.  I like CamOn Live Streaming, which I use, and Streamlabs. I have also tried CamerFi Live and YouStream.

If you still have issues, reduce the resolution and/or quality of the stream and try again.  I don't think the YouTube app will allow this.
