Simulcast Restrictions

If you want to stream on Facebook and other social accounts at the same time, you will need to create separate schedules for Facebook and separate schedules for other platforms. Schedule all the streams to go live at the same time!

Facebook prohibits any third party, using their live steam API, to live stream the same video to any other destination at the same time.

So when selecting multiple social accounts to live stream your video to, you cannot select Facebook social accounts together with any other type of social accounts like YouTube or Periscope etc. However you can select multiple Facebook social accounts OR select multiple YouTube, Periscope, Twitch etc accounts.

You can choose multiple Groups, Pages and Profile within Facebook. But to schedule streams on Facebook and other platforms, separate schedules need to be created to go live at the same time.

The following table summarizes all possible social account combinations:
