Creating an online event on Facebook

To go Live on a Facebook event kindly follow the steps mentioned below:

Open Facebook and click on What's on your mind? at the top of News Feed and click on 3 dots to open more options


Select Live Video option.



From the left bar, select where you’d like to go live and the selected Facebook profile, page or group will be the host of the Facebook event.

Click on Create live video event > Set up Event in Facebook live producer.


In the left side bar, kindly enter event details including Event name, date & time, privacy and description.

Click on Next.


In the left column, click on Settings > Stream.

Copy persistent stream key from the right side window.

Click on Create Event.



Click on Set up Live Video.



In the left sidebar, make sure that Complete post details check box is green.

Scroll down and toggle on Go Live automatically at scheduled start time.

Click on Save changes .



Go to OneStream dashboard, click Accounts> add accounts option on left sidebar and select Custom RTMP.



Assign a name to your Custom RTMP social account & choose platform as Facebook.

Paste the Persistent stream key copied from Facebook Event.

Click Connect to OneStream.


Once Custom RTMP account is connected, schedule pre-recorded videos or go live in Real-time on that Custom RTMP social account via OneStream.

The stream will go live on the Facebook event at set date & time automatically!

Schedule the stream in OneStream by setting up the time to be 1 minute after the scheduled time on Facebook. For example, if you have scheduled video on Facebook at 10:00 set the scheduled time in OneStream to be 10:01. This is to prevent any stream cut at the beginning of the video due to a slight time difference between Facebook's and your computer's clock.
