Support » Plugin: WP YouTube Live » Live Stream embed stopped working

  • Resolved ashleydale19


    A few weeks ago my live stream embed just stopped working, I have been using this plugin for about a year now with no issues. I have checked my API key and it is still accepting requests and is not showing any errors in the Google developer console.

    My WordPress version is: 4.9.11.

    Here is my debug code, I have removed the API key and channel ID:

    @ashleydale19 I’ve heard the same issue from a few other people in the week, so it seems that Google/YouTube has changed something.

    I’m working on an updated plugin with a fix for the problem.

    @macbookandrew Thank you for the quick reply.

    I have seen that YouTube has made some changes to the live streaming system so that could be the cause of all this.
    It’s great your working on an updated plugin, I will defiantly be keeping an eye out for it as this plugin has been great so far.

    Thank you,

    @ashleydale19 Unfortunately the YouTube API is not returning the live video details the plugin needs to work properly.

    There are a number of bug reports on Google’s issue tracker already, so we just have to wait for them to fix it.



    @macbookandrew looks like Google has fixed their issue, the live stream embed is working again.
    Thank you for your help with this.
