If you want to host a live stream video production outside of YouTube, but still want your fan base to know about it, using the embeddable player directly on your website is the way to go. You have more control of your environment and your viewers will already be on your website.
One negative is that YouTube will provide your subscribers with links to the feed on their site, not yours. If you get questions and comments from both the embed and YouTube players. It could get confusing, but if you prepare some help ahead of time it shouldn’t be too big a problem. Another negative about the embed player is that the watch time doesn’t matter as much as it does on the YouTube video production player. If you’re going to do the live stream video production thing, it’s a good idea to set up an embeddable player on your site or anywhere else you can put it. Having it visible in more than one place is never going to hurt you.
