Livestreamed video cuts off first 7 to 10 seconds...
« on: February 07, 2018, 02:02:47 PM »
Hi,

I'm excited. Published my first livestreamed video using IVW.

However, ran into a little bug.

Just watched the recording of the newly livestreamed video.

And the first 7 to 10 seconds or so of the video were cut off.

In other words, the recorded video starts 7 to 10 seconds later than I designed it. And the first 7 to 10 seconds were removed.

Not sure if I'm doing anything wrong...

You aren't doing anything wrong. I've noticed that sometimes YouTube doesn't record the entire stream (even if the stream runs absolutely fine from start to finish on the Live Event). It doesn't happen often, but it does occasionally.

If it persists as an issue for you and you know you'll be live streaming a lot, add a slide at the beginning of your video and drop one of the countdown video clips into the slide.

To do that, add a slide at the beginning of your video and go to the videos tab. Select "Countdown" from the "Popular Video Background Categories" dropdown list and select one of the 10 second countdowns from there.

That way if YouTube cuts off the first few seconds it will only be cutting off from the countdown.

Make sense?

Thanks! That's a great idea. :)

I'll give that a try, and see if I can make it work.

By the way, would you recommend livestreaming all your videos just to getting better Google and YouTube rankings?

Personally yes. Live streams tend to get more immediate traffic due to the rankings boost, so even if the rankings don't hold it should help you long term.

Ok. Thanks Jon!

This is the same problem I was having.  I thought it had been resolved.

So is the resolution to create a work around by stuffing the beginning with some filler slides instead of just having the Live Stream actually play from beginning to end?

If Youtube is having a problem, then yes. But don't look at it as "stuffing", make it relevant to the subject.
