  1. Create a YouTube account:
  2. Activate your channel for live streams:

    2. "Allow "embed live streams
  3. Install software for live streaming (e.g. Open Broadcaster Software):

  5. Start streaming: 

In the Live Dashboard at you will find the Share Link in the lower right corner, you can use this link in your confirmation/ticket email in MATE (instructions).

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:

The code then only needs to be inserted into a webpage in the correct place.

Afterwards you can also use this webpage where the stream is embedded as a link in your confirmation/ticket email in MATE (instructions).
