"It was a very informative session. For me, big takeaways were to balance streaming and uploading of videos on my channel. I plan to implement it aggressively. We got to know more about copyright act and various aspects of making quality content", said Gagandeep Singh.


He also spoke about how budding YouTubers can grow their channel, he said, "It is very important that the balance is maintained between streaming and uploading videos. Content should be creative and it should be a continuous process. In India, it is often misconstrued that live streaming is the only option to grow YouTube channel but it should be understood that uploading of videos is also important."

We are excited to see a growing livestreaming community on YouTube from here and will extend all our support to help them gain further ground."
