Facebook Live Streaming Tutorial for vMix


Hi everyone today i’m going to show you
how you can connect your vMix production to stream directly to Facebook live it’s
very simple and straightforward you just need to go to the Settings section down
the bottom for streaming then go to facebook from the drop-down menu. Then select facebook settings now this is your facebook settings screen for your
facebook stream so as you notice at the top it says status not logged in so we
need to log into facebook by clicking this button so from this screen here you
just need to enter all of your facebook login information so that the mix can
connect you can take keep me logged into the mix by using this tip box and then
click login ok so you notice that the status has now
changed at the top to create a new stream below so we connected to facebook
now we need to create stream title and description so we’ll just call it
testing facebook and test then we can choose a location so we can do it to our
own facebook timeline to any pages that we have like the mix or any events that
we’ve created so let’s do our index page and then we all send it to our friends
you can choose which you like they’re from that menu then click create stream
this is going to send this information back to facebook and create that
particular strain there so at the moment you can only stream using 720p max for
facebook obviously this might change in the
future but at the moment we have this stream setup for 720 alright so once
that’s done we can click the Start stream and that will start a facebook
stream or you already have it setup you can use the stream button down the
bottom as well alright so now we currently streaming to
our Facebook live page so let’s add some audio for everybody listening let’s add a web browser input so we loaded up our web browser and now
as you can see we have our stream going directly to Facebook life and we have
one person viewing which could be me so yet to stop the stream to stop normally
and and they go that’s how you can stream to facebook live directly from
the mix thanks if you have any questions or comments please leave them below
