An update on our progress, using the recommendations in the Youtube Developer's article we found, we were able to get a perma-link set up in our Event Video Embed Code field using Streaming Provider so that any time we go live on Youtube, it is now picked up by our ChurchOnline Event automatically instead of us having to create a new link or Event each time.
The code we used was the same code you get from any of your existing Youtube Channel video Embed Codes from the Share section, but you replace the SRC= hyperlink in the archived video link with the following link:
where [Channel ID] is your unique Youtube channel ID.
So, in our case, one of our previously live streamed Youtube Live videos had this link in the embed code of it's archived video:
We replaced that embed code link with the following src link as recommended by Youtube Developers:
Then we pasted the modified embed code into our Event / Video / Streaming Provider / Default Video Embed Code field and it worked like a charm
Hope this helps,
