However if you would like to see this stream in YouTube Studio, open it up in your web browser and select Manage from the left sidebar. You should see in the list a current live stream that is live now.
You can then click on this to view your stream in YouTube Studio.
NOTE: Once you finish the stream in vMix, it will also automatically end in YouTube. No need to stop the stream in the YouTube Studio interface.
