Streaming to YouTube Using Roland’s VR Vision Mixers

VR-1HD LIvestreaming

Streaming to YouTube Live is simple using Roland’s VR Series vision mixers. This quick guide will get you up and running in no time!

Streaming to YouTube Live

Connect the USB output of your VR Series AV Mixer to a USB 3.0 port on your computer, and then go to YouTube’s website.

This guide applies to the VR-1HD, VR-4HD, VR-50HD, VR-50HD MK II, V-4EX, and VR-3EX.

If you are streaming to this platform for the first time, they may require 24 hours or longer to verify your account. I suggest setting up and testing your stream account well in advance of your event.
