Creating an Online Event on Facebook

Click on Create live video event > Create Event in Facebook Live Producer.

In the left-hand sidebar, enter event details including Event name, date & time, privacy and description.

Click on Next.

In the left-hand 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-hand 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 Live dashboard homepage and click on Add Social Platform.

Select Custom RTMP option.

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

Paste the Persistent stream key copied from Facebook Event.

Click Connect.

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

The stream will go live on the Facebook event at the 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.
