Live Stream pre-recorded videos on a Facebook Event

Create an event on Facebook.

Visit https://www.facebook.com/live/create and click "Create Live Stream"

Select Share in an event from right side under post tab.

Type the event name and title.

Check Use a persistent stream key.

Copy the streaming key.



In OneStream dashboard under Accounts click Add account and click Custom RTMP.



Give your custom social account a name of your choice, for example My Channel, My Event etc.

Select Facebook from the drop down list under Choose Platform.

Paste Streaming Key that you copied from Facebook in the Stream key field.

Click Connect to OneStream.



After you have scheduled a video for this RTMP social account come back to https://www.facebook.com/live/create.

Once you see your stream appear in Facebook click Go Live to send the stream to your event.



It is very important to understand that you have to click Go Live yourself for the video to be actually sent as live stream in an event. Just scheduling it from OneStream dashboard will not send it as live in the event.
