Making the Move: Google Hangouts On Air Is Now YouTube Live
The change from Google Hangouts On Air to YouTube Live (officially starts September 12, 2016) didn't concern me until I tried to actually set up a live event and became confounded and bogged down by the whole "encoding" nightmare.
Forget about encoding unless you are an advanced videographer.
The issue that threw me off was how to set up a YouTube Live Event for a future date without the use of encoding (custom vs. quick). Perplexed and frustrated after hours of researching, playing around with YouTube Live, and reaching out to my PLN for assistance, I finally figured out a solution! YAY!
