Let's learn how to stream the Wyze Cam to YouTube, shall we?
The good news is that you can use Free software to stream your camera live to YouTube. Wouldn't it be great to know how to do that? Just keep reading...
There are different ways to accomplish this task, in this article, I show how to use a computer or (or laptop) to act as a gateway between the camera the YouTube.
Don't worry, you won't spend a dime to set up this system. You like that, right? 🙂
The Free Software for YouTube Live Stream
To be able to stream live to YouTube is necessary to use the RTMP protocol.
Unfortunately, the Wyze Cam doesn't have support for it.
That's the reason we need to use an intermediate software such as the Luxriot.
This software can receive the Wyze Cam video stream via the RTSP protocol and redirect such stream to YouTube using the RTMP protocol.
So, it's necessary to have your Wyze Cam up and running with the RTSP firmware to get started with the setup. Make sure you have everything ready.

How to add the Wyze Cam to Luxriot Evo
The first step is to visit the official Luxriot web site to download the Free version.
Just follow the installation wizard to get the software up and running.
The Luxriot Evo is designed for corporate applications, so it could be a little bit hard to deal with the software, but I'm sure you can do it. (It's not rocket science).
Adding the camera to the software
Open the Luxriot console (click the icon on the desktop).
Click the button "New Device" to add the camera.
Give your camera a title and click the button "Select Model",
In the next window select "Generic RTSP Compatible" and click "OK".
On the network menu, fill all the information and click the "OK" button.
Use your Wyze Cam IP address, the port 554 and the username and password.
(The username and password are the ones generated during the RTSP firmware installation)
For the next step click "Channel configuration" >> "Open channel properties".
Click the RTSP Tab and insert "/live" as shown below:
Click on the Wyze Cam and click "Show Video"
If everything is OK, you should see the Wyze Cam live stream.
Open the "Luxriot Evo Monitor" to see the camera live.
