If you would like to stream a lecture for as many viewers as you like, this is very easily possible via Youtube livestreams. It is possible to access such a livestream via MATE for example into the Virtual Event Platform.
Setup of a YouTube livestream
The following steps must be carried out:
1. Enable live streaming
- Go to YouTube.
- From the top right, click Create Go live.
- If you haven't already, follow the prompts to verify your channel.
- Enabling your first live stream may take up to 24 hours. Once enabled, you can live stream instantly.
2. Choose a way to stream
There are three types of streams: mobile, webcam, and encoder. Choose the one that's best for what you're streaming.
Good for vlogging and quick updates from your phone or tablet.
You’ll need 1,000 subscribers, and a phone or tablet with a camera.
Quickly live stream from your computer using a webcam.
You’ll need a computer with a webcam.
Encoders let you stream gameplay, overlays, and use hardware like preamps, mics, and cameras. This type of stream is commonly used for gaming, sporting events, concerts, and conferences.

Embedding the YouTube Livestream
YouTube livestreams can be embedded on any webpage. This is done with the help of an iFrame.
You can either embed a current video or even permanently your own YouTube channel as a livestream. The channel always shows the current streamed video.
For better visualization you can see an example HTML code for embedding the channel here:
The CHANNEL_ID must be exchanged with the actual ID of the channel. This can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/account_advanced
The code then only needs to be inserted into a webpage in the correct place.
