Former Twitch streamer Ludwig recently got banned from YouTube during a Livestream.

Ludwig Anders Ahgren or more commonly known online as Ludwig was one of the biggest streamers on Twitch. A few months ago his 31 days substation took him to the top of the Twitch streamers with the most subs. His streams on Twitch used to have more than 25,000 average viewers.

But Ludwig decided to leave all that behind and move to YouTube to stream exclusively on it. The announcement came just a few days ago in the formal of a video. Starting from Wednesday, December 1st Ludwig has started streaming exclusively on YouTube. His average viewer count is still around 20,000 per stream.

But all is not going well as Ludwig got banned from YouTube Live only 3 days after moving to the platform. The video below shows the moment Ludwig got banned and his reaction after finding out.

Ludwig was watching a video of ‘The Slow Mo Guys’ when suddenly his stream was unavailable. The video then cuts to Ludwig going to his YouTube profile to find out that he got banned. He then takes a screenshot of his banned stream and says,

“Did I get Banned?”.

He later posted the screenshot on his Twitter account with the caption, “you could say the switch has been going well…”.

Possible Reason for Ludwig’s Ban:

Remember, in Ludwig’s video announcing his move to YouTube. There he joked about being able to listen to music in the red car which symbolized YouTube. Well, turns out that’s not the case. According to many of his viewers, Ludwig got banned for playing copyright music and YouTube videos.

YouTube has an auto DMCA takedown system in place for situations like this so Ludwig’s ban was automated for playing DMCA music and videos.

Currently, we have no info about the duration of the ban so we will just have to hope for some news from YouTube or Ludwig.
