Warning: There are 2 ways to publish to Facebook live

  • Standard
    • Allows you to publish a live feed up to 4 hours and to have the event automatically recorded and available as a VOD once ended.
    • If you want to publish on a “standard” mode, there is nothing to do since it is the default mode.
  • Continuous
    • Allows you to publish a live feed up to 24 hours but there won’t be any recording. Therefore your event will not be available as a VOD once ended.
    • If you want to publish on a “continuous” mode, you need to click on “Settings” and select the box “Publish this as a continuous live video”.
