AnsweredThis Live Stream Recording is Not Available [Solved!]✅

Hello, will the live stream monitoring time be counted if the stream lasts longer than 24 hours? When I try to access a video that's longer than 24 hours, YouTube says, "This live stream recording is unavailable." (The video is public.) What should I do?

YouTube says, 'This live stream recording is not available' because your stream is longer than 12 hours and is hence not captured. According to Google, if your live stream is shorter than 12 hours, YouTube can automatically save it for later viewing. However, if the live stream exceeds 12 hours, it may not be captured at all. This applies to all live streams.

You can't change the rules but you can use an alternative program to record YouTube content. EaseUS RecExperts is a good choice. This Windows and Mac screen recorder records YouTube live streams without a time limit. You can save it to your local folders with one click.
