How to Run 24/7 Streams on YouTube Without Leaving Your Computer On

Updated On:

To become a popular streamer on YouTube, it’s essential to have a recognizable style and exciting content and reach as large an audience as possible. The key to this is to increase the duration of your streams to allow people from all existing time zones to connect to your live broadcast. At the same time, this approach can be pretty challenging to implement, at least because on streaming days, you will have to sit in front of your computer for all 24 hours. However, there is a way to avoid this. We will share it with you below.

How Does It Work?

Without further ado, is what you need. Working with it is as simple as possible:

  1. First, you have to upload your finished video to the Gyre server;
  2. Then, you should determine the sequence of your videos if there are several of them;
  3. After that, you have to define on which platform you are going to go live (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitch);
  4. Finally, you should use your Gyre live stream key, set the start and end date and time for your live stream, and run it.

Please note that to perform the above actions, you will not need to transfer your account data from the streaming platform to the Gyre tool, which means you will eliminate any risks associated with data theft.

What Does YouTube Say?

The YouTube platform welcomes unique content and, in particular, long-term streams. Gyre’s continuous streams have been successfully hosted on thousands of YouTube channels, both big and small, without encountering moderation issues related to content duplication or uniqueness. Also, many verified cases demonstrate that YouTube actively promotes this approach.

Tips on How to Get the Most Out of Gyre

Let’s look at some practical tips on how to get the most out of using Gyre to run your 24/7 live stream:

  • Ensure the total length of your videos for looping in one broadcast is from 40–60 minutes (the longer, the better).
  • Comply with all the requirements of the YouTube platform for online streaming (meaning video resolution, bitrate, etc.). If you doubt the correctness of the default parameters for your video, you can use the built-in Gyre converter.
  • Determine the correct time to launch your stream: at this moment, your audience should be as active as possible within the platform.
  • Create new streams every three days since, during this time, maximum engagement of your target audience is ensured.
  • Try running several simultaneous streams with different content simultaneously to maximize your reach.
  • Test your content approaches to achieve the best results. Note that the optimal period for collecting analytics is three months following one specific strategy – once you see the analytics, this strategy can be optimized based on it.

Effective Cases of Gyre Streams

To ensure the effectiveness of the above, consider some actual results achieved with 24-hour live streams implemented with Gyre.

On this channel, the audience reached 4.8 million. With Gyre’s help, the channel creator achieved impressive results in 10 days. During this period, continuous streams garnered over a million views and contributed to almost 50% of the total watch time on the channel. Notably, the average view duration on the streams is five times higher than regular videos — 8:40 (compared to 1:42 for regular videos).

Continuous streams are also valuable for medium-sized channels (683K subscribers). The author, who produces content in the crafting and handmade niche, integrates streams alongside regular videos. This strategy enables the generation of over 20% of the channel’s watch time through streams, attracting views (4.8% of total views come from them) and enhancing the average view duration — up to 5:58 (compared to 1:56 for regular).

Incorporating streaming into your long-term content strategy can yield significant benefits. For instance, the channel gained nearly 2000 subscribers in just five months, with the average view duration reaching 52 minutes-surpassing the typical half-hour viewing time for regular videos.

In nearly a year of active continuous stream launches, the channel accrued an additional 69.5 million views, surpassing 31.6 million views garnered by regular videos during the same period. Moreover, the live streams notably enhanced average viewer retention. This figure stands at 6 minutes for streams, while it hovers just under 1 minute for regular videos. The live streams exerted the most significant impact on the watch time metric, accumulating a staggering 7.19 million hours of viewing, constituting an impressive 94% of the total watch time.

With an audience numbering in the millions, new releases quickly amass hundreds of thousands of views. However, in May 2023, the creator incorporated continuous live streams into their content strategy, starting with 6-8 simultaneous broadcasts. The outcome was nothing short of extraordinary improvements in their statistics. Within the first two weeks, views skyrocketed tenfold, and estimated revenue surged 14 times!
