Click Create Event.



Step 2: Setting up the live stream schedule

Click on the Set up Live video button on the main page of your event.



Click on the button Go Live Now.

Make sure you click Use Stream Key.

Enable Use a Persistent Stream Key.

Press Schedule a Live Video.



Announcement Post will be set by Facebook if you want it earlier or later on so you can change manually as well.

Copy the Stream key and save it somewhere.

Click Schedule Live Video at the bottom left of the Facebook live video scheduler.



Head back to OneStream Dashboard and create a Custom RTMP account.



Enter Social Account Name and choose platform as Facebook from the drop-down menu.

Keep the Server URL as Autodetect, paste the Stream Key you copied earlier from Facebook in the stream key field.

Click Connect to OneStream.



Now go to OneStream Dashboard select pre-recorded streaming (or real-time streaming depending on your use case) and upload your file.



Scroll down and schedule your file to the Custom RTMP account you just connected.



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
