Question / Help Livestream to youtube doesn't work

#1
Hello! Today I tried to livestream to youtube (like always) but it didn't work.
I start streaming and in youtube on the top pf the page the green light is on, the "stream health" button says "everything fine"- But nochting is streaming- In the window where the sream should appear i see "stream offline" and just my thumbnail.
I tried to gogle thois problem but found nothing. Soemone told me to change the server to "backup" but this didn't help.
P.S. and this is a problem between OBS studio and youtube because i finally did stream via Hangouts and it worked. (So I'm not banned on youtube or so, its just youtube doesn't work together with OBS studio any more. I also tried to update the sotware and ion didn't help.
Thank you!

Hello

please read pinned posts they say provide a logfile
https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/please-post-a-log-with-your-issue-heres-how.23074/

Please try to include a recording/streaming session when you experience problems while streaming or recording,
as OBS only writes important performance data during recording or streaming sessions.

If you have solved your problem yourself, please let the others know how you did it If someone else has the same problem,
he will find your post, read it through, is no step closer to solving it, and has wasted some time.

Code:
23:42:12.418: [rtmp stream: 'adv_stream'] Connection to rtmp://b.rtmp.youtube.com/live2?backup=1 successful
You're streaming to the backup server, you need to stream to the primary server if you want your stream to appear.

Someone told me to do this but it didn't help. I switched it back to the primary server, but the result is the same. Here the latest log:

P.S. I tried to update my webcams driver and after this the webcam dissapeared in OBS studio. It doesnt show up and when i go to the webcam settings i don't see my picture. (Just a grey screen)- But thisis a separate problem. Because OBS doesn't stream properly even when the cam is switched off.

The stream is successfully reaching YouTube, maybe you need to start it on their end or reach out to YT support.
