How to Know if your YouTube Channel is a Brand Channel

In order to connect a YouTube channel as a destination in StreamYard, you will either need to be the owner of the channel, or be a manager on a "Brand" channel. Sometimes it may be tricky to figure out if the channel you are a manager of is a Brand channel or not.
