Facebook have made it so much easier to share what you are up to with Facebook live, in a way they could have taken periscope out of the picture.
Using video is a great way to position and market your brand and share your message. It’s relatively easy to film your self off the phone to share a message.
But have you wanted to also share your desktop? Maybe for sharing presentations or do reviews and wished there was a way you could do this?
Grate! as the good news is just below. You can use this method to share your screen and or use better cameras and sound.
First Download OBS – www.obsproject.com – Open Broadcaster Software is free and open source software for video recording and live streaming.
Then Go to the Facebook page you want to stream to and click Publishing Tools > video > on the Video library box click the + live button.
Here, a ‘create live video’ box will open. Copy the stream key as you will need this.
Now open up OBS
Click on settings > Steam > Select service as Facebook live from the drop down, and copy in your stream key/ server settings
Now go to OBS and select the sources , here you can add display capture to show your desktop or video capture to use your desk top or web cam
Click the start streaming and your Facebook page will pick up on this, then you can go live on Facebook and your stream will get used on the page
Turn off your speakers or use headphones otherwise you may get feedback
There you go, now you can use your desk top screen when you use Facebook live. This is a great way to train, educate, show and share information.
All the best.
