still having youtube connection issues, found workaround

Running ML 4.6, I went live Tuesday night with our monthly meeting and still had problems with youtube, it just flat refused to connect. the button was grayed out. I even set up a new output source and re-entered all the info & still had no connection. So I tried setting up using the Custom RTMP option & got it to connect and broadcast. You can find the setting here:

not sure why it did that with the link, login to youtube then add /live_dashboard to the URL.
