Hi, Yes, you can stream to Facebook using MX Light.

Here's a quick example of how to translate the details :

from Facebook streaming dashboard:
Server URL = rtmp://rtmp-api.facebook.com:80/rtmp/
Streaming Key = 12345678901234567?ds=1&a=AaZ9...

to MX Light: (RTMP streaming preset)
Type = RTMP,
Server = rtmp-api.facebook.com:80
Application = rtmp
Play path = 12345678901234567?ds=1&a=AaZ9...

Cheers,

Rich

Same Issue

There is a small "error" in the instructions written above to enter into MXLight.  in the application it says type RTMP,   ......   when in fact it should be rtmp.  The entry is Case Sensative and the capital letters won't work.  It has to be lower case in the application box.  Also, there's no comma after the rtmp.

drove me nuts for a day before I found it.....LMAO

Enjoy :)

new live api

Hello, everyone!

There are some problems with a new facebook stream server or application, now it's rtmp://live-api-a.facebook.com:80/rtmp/ . And all previous settings don't work for me. Any suggestions?

 

Regards,

Roman

Hi All, Here's a quick screen

Hi All,

Here's a quick screen shot of MX Light's RTMP streaming preset, setup to use the new facebook server settings.

As before, just set the 'Play path' to the 'Streaming key' facebook provides (shown in the image below), click 'save' & then start streaming.

To save a bit of typing, here's a link to an MX Light streaming preset for facebook that only needs the 'Stream key' setting:

http://mxlight.co.uk/presets/RTMP_facebook.mxs

This can be loaded into MX Light as follows:

  • save the attachment (RTMP facebook.mxs) into your MX Light folder.
  • in MX Light, on the streaming preset list under the 'Stream' panel, right-click & select 'Import preset'.
  • select the 'RTMP facebook.mxs' file from your MX Light folder

Then just double-click on the preset & set the 'Stream key' & start streaming.

Cheers,
Rich

Set Up: The process to set up

Set Up: The process to set up your streaming software will depend on the software you're using. In most cases, you'll use one of these options:

  • Single Field: Your streaming software uses one field for server address and key.
  • Separate Field: Your streaming software uses separate fields for server address and key.
