Troubleshooting the Autostream Feature

How to troubleshoot the Autostream feature when the playlist failover happens?

The Livebox Autostream tends to show a warning sign while creating a playlist because of the invalid URLs of the YouTube videos or the wrong RTMP URL while automating a playlist on the streaming destination.

3 Reasons for the Playlist Failover

  • You have entered the invalid URLs of the YouTube videos.
  • You have entered the incorrect RTMP URL of your streaming destination.
  • The video you are trying to stream is unsupported by the Autostream feature.
  • When you try to create a playlist with the private videos.

Case 1:

Note: Under any of these circumstances if you keep requesting YouTube with an invalid URL/RTMP URL or any unsupported media, the YouTube blocks your server to automate live playlist henceforth.

So, in that case, by correcting the invalid URLs followed by Restarting, the playlist can be successfully automated live on the streaming platforms.
