NOTE: The maximum limit for Facebook live streaming is 8 hours/Session & It is recommended to not take a break for more than 2 mins while the session is live.
Points to keep in mind:
In Facebook Live, you can go live one at a time (in case of a single page), and once your first session is over then you need to regenerate the Stream key & Stream URL again and follow the above steps again.
- Stream resolution for any session stream into Facebook is a maximum of 720p.
If the Facebook stream is pre-schedule:
Make sure you go live on the session at the same time the event is scheduled for.
It goes live automatically and stops the stream in case it doesn't get any feed from Airmeet
Recommended not to take any break for a session that is getting streamed as if the break gets extended for more than 2 mins the stream will get stopped and needs to be refreshed from the Facebook dashboard to start the stream again or create a new stream key.
if the session got ended by the event host, the Facebook live stream will stop, and need to regenerate the Stream key & Stream URL again and make changes in the dashboard.
Recommended to not take a break while the session is being streamed to any platform.
