Why is there a delay when I live stream to YouTube?

When live streaming to YouTube, your video will be sent to YouTube where it is then transcoded for streaming. The added processing your video must go through when it is uploaded causes this delay. Unfortunately this delay is unavoidable due to the nature of the live streaming process. More details on this are available here.
