How can I stream to Facebook Live?

Any video source can be sent to Facebook with the Restreamer and posted there as a live event with a few clicks.

It may be that Facebook has adjusted the process on the platform. However, the basic principle with the streaming key will always remain the same. Visit Facebook Help if you are not sure how to use it.

You can find a helpful guide for live streaming on Facebook. The guide will help you find the streaming ID for the restreamer.

The stream should always be manually stopped on Facebook first. If the stream is interrupted elsewhere during a social media stream, Facebook may not save the live stream in the archive.
