"Request had insufficient authentication scopes" error when trying to login to YouTube

You may encounter the following error when attempting to login to YouTube from either the vMix stream settings window or vMix Social window:
"Request had insufficient authentication scopes."

This error will occur if you miss an important step during the login process. To fix, login to YouTube again via vMix. But when you reach the below step make sure you tick the last checkbox for "Manage your YouTube Account". This is required in order for vMix to have the appropriate permissions. Once this box is ticked, the error will be resolved.
