Schedule a Facebook Live Stream
Before you start, make sure you have a Facebook Live stream scheduled and that you have the Facebook Live embed code. Here are the steps:
- Access Facebook Live Producer at facebook.com/live/producer.
- Click "Schedule a Live Video" on the left sidebar.
- A new window will appear on the left side of the screen. Scroll down and fill in the time and date the video will go live, where the post should appear, and the title and description of the live video.
- If all of the previously mentioned fields have been filled out correctly, the grey "Schedule Live Video" button at the bottom of the page will turn blue. Click this button to schedule your broadcast.
- Finally, click Settings > Stream > Embed Code, and then copy the embed code to use further along in the process.
If needed, the video found HERE might provide some useful context on how to set this up.
*Please Note* The video will remain on the block if it is not deleted and still set to "public".
