Live Stream to Facebook Timeline

Live stream your Riverside recording session on Facebook to reach a broader audience. The steps below explain how to set up a live stream to share on your own timeline. You can also share a live stream on a Facebook Page you manage or Group you belong to or to a Live Video Event.

Step by step:

  1. Using a computer, log in to your Facebook account.
  2. Go to the Facebook homepage.
  3. Under What's on your mind?, click Live Video.
  4. Under Go live, click Select to start the live stream immediately or within the next 24 hours.
  5. Under Select a Video Source, click Streaming Software.
  6. Under Streaming software setup, find Stream key.
  7. Next to the stream key, click Copy.
  8. Click Advanced Settings to display the Server URL.
    NOTE:
    By default, Facebook suggests a Server URL that uses rtmpS://. Remove the letter S from the URL when you add it to Riverside in the next step.
  9. Add the Key and URL back to the Riverside Studio.
    TIP:
    If you do not see a Server URL option on Facebook, use rtmp://live-api-s.facebook.com:443/rtmp/ as the Stream URL on Riverside.
  10. Start and Stop the Live Stream on Riverside.
    IMPORTANT:
    Your live stream will be visible on Facebook only after the Host also clicks Go Live on the Facebook post.
