Manual GoSocial

GoSocial allows you to stream your video live to Facebook, periscope (Twitter) and Youtube.
 

START a FACEBOOK LIVESTREAM

  • Navigate to this URL: https://www.facebook.com/live/create
  • Next choose Create Livestream
  • Next you will need to select Share on a page you manage instead of “share on your timeline” and select the page you want to stream to.
  • You will receive a Server URL and Stream Key. You need to input these two items in the CMS. Click here to see how.
Important: The Server URL and Stream Key can only be used for a single Live preview/post connection. You must use the same URL and key to preview and post. That is, you cannot preview, stop the stream, and then resume at a later time. The URL and Key are valid for 7 days. Once you preview the video, you have up to 5 hours to go live. If you need more time, create a new stream key closer to the event time. Important: Please do not make use of the Secure Connection (SSL). Our system does not yet support it.

Add a STREAMING URL and STREAM KEY in the CMS

To start a GoSocial stream, a session needs to have started first in the CMS. Next you will see a box under the Streams section where you will be able to input your Stream key and Server URL for a social media platform like Facebook, Periscope or Youtube. Next press “Push stream” and your broadcast will start to the desired platform.
