So I've recently switched from Twitch to Youtube, and a little testing on an unpublished guide shows me that replacing the Youtube url with the stream-specific youtube URL will successfully embed my YouTube stream on the top of the guide for viewers to see, just like with Twitch. Why not allow us to add youtube.com/c/[YOURNAME]/live . Adding /live to your channel URL now instantly takes you to the current or upcoming stream, so it will work seamlessly with the current system.

Right now when you try to add this is will say you have an invalid link because it is not in the video (=watch) format, by simply allowing any YouTube /live link the entire problem is solved as the stream is embedded exactly like a featured video, and us YouTube streamers can now make the most of Prime too!
