Can I Live Stream MultiTracks Legally?

Published by Loop Community on

With the many changes in our world currently due to COVID-19, we’ve been asked a lot if it’s okay to live stream multitracks in your online church service. Many churches in the past few weeks have moved to streaming church services on platforms like Facebook, YouTube,, etc.

The answer is yes, you can! You will still need a CCLI Streaming License, but if you have that, you’re all set. Any track you purchase from is covered.

We are with you and praying for you during this time.

Does this apply to master tracks too?

Yes! Our amazing partners are allowing for Master, Premium and Community tracks to be live streamed for a limited time.

1) What happens to the right to stream after the “limited time”, can or can’t do as before?
2) I see prices but no currency, is this service USA only or international?
ie. What about Australia and AUD prices?

Hey Tim,

1) We will have more information on streaming Master Tracks when the time comes, but right now you are still covered. Premium Tracks and Community Tracks are always covered if you have a CCLI streaming license.
2) The prices are all in US Dollars, but you can purchase tracks internationally as well.

Is the ability to use your tracks for livestream a permanent or temporary feature?

Hi Colleen,

You are always able to use Community, Premium and Enhancement Tracks from Loop Community as long as you have a CCLI Streaming License. For Master Tracks, right now you are able to use them thanks to our generous partners, and if/when this changes, we will update everyone.

Hello, I am receiving copyright strikes when my church streams on YouTube. We currently have a streaming license for CCLI. Any thoughts on what I can do to resolve this? Thanks

Hey Caleb,

Unfortunately, YouTube’s automatic reader music may still flag Master Tracks, even if you have a CCLI streaming license. First, make sure that you are not monetizing the video. If that doesn’t work, we recommend using Community, Premium or Enhancement Tracks from Loop Community if you are streaming to YouTube. You are allowed to stream with those if you have a CCLI Streaming license.

Hope this helps! Thanks!

My question is similar to Caleb’s, if l purchase the track from LoopCommunity how does YouTube know: 1. I have a CCLI license? 2. That l purchased this track with it already being authorised? Purchasing tracks is saving me a lot of time, but l find YouTube is really strict at the moment and l cannot seem to understand how to get past it’s automatic reader. I have even had a length meeting with CCLI direct and they advised the same ensure l have Stream license with them, which l do and YouTube still present copyright strikes.

Hey Jon,

YouTube has an automatic reader that will flag any original music. The first thing to do is make sure you are not monetizing the video. If you are using Master Tracks (original tracks from the artist) it will still most likely be flagged. We recommend using Premium Tracks, Community Tracks, or Enhancement Tracks from Loop Community. These tracks will not be flagged and we give you permission if you have a CCLI streaming license to stream these tracks.

Hope this helps!

Are we still able to livestream master tracks legally? I haven’t heard anything one way or the other about that.

Dave · February 3, 2023 at 3:39 pm

Yep, I agree, I think the Streaming License covers master tracks as well as multitracks 👍🏻
