Why you need a YouTube Live Stream Encoder?
Why use video encoder hardware? After all, you don't need specialised hardware or software to stream live on YouTube.
It all depends on the quality of the content you want to distribute to the world. If you're fine with the default audio and video quality of a single-camera video, a standard smartphone, or a laptop, then you'll be fine with just your smartphone or computer.
But if you want to make your video look more professional, with options for polished live multi-camera streams and video overlays that impress and engage your viewers, you'll need to use an encoder.
Hardware encoding vs. software encoding
We highly recommend that you use a hardware encoder for YouTube live streaming, not a software encoder. It's much more advantageous to use a system designed for live streaming than to compete for resources with generic hardware full of parallel software and processes.
