Step 4. Configure the setting of RTMPS, then select ''Video+Audio'', then click ''Set Up''


This is the RTMPS setting format of FB Live.

RTMP mode:   RTMPS

RTMP server ip:   live-api-s.facebook.com

RTMP server port:   443

RTMP app name:   rtmp

RTMP stream name:   xxx(xxx is your Stream Key)


For example, my Stream Key is 2668468800146330?s_bl=1&s_sc=2668470016812875&s_sw=0&s_vt=api-s&a=Abw1q8di5Ml5fc7v. Therefore, I need to enter the following RTMPS information of FB Live.


RTMP mode:   RTMPS

RTMP server ip:   live-api-s.facebook.com

RTMP server port:   443

RTMP app name:   rtmp

RTMP stream name:   2668468800146330?s_bl=1&s_sc=2668470016812875&s_sw=0 &s_vt=api-s&a=Abw1q8di5Ml5fc7v

Step 7. Check if the video encoder is connected to FB Live

If ''Online'' is displayed, it means the video encoder is connected to Facebook already.

If it still shows ''Offline'' after completing the above steps, please refresh the web page. Meanwhile, please check for the following issues.


1).   Make sure that the video and audio are input to the video encoder. You can check the input status in ''Input Status''. If it is blank after the parameter of ''Video input'' or ''Audio input'', it means there is no audio or video input. Unable to start live streaming.

2).   Please check if you have input the corrected value in the DNS0 and DNS1 setting.


3).   Please contact us for assistance. Our engineer will help you solve the problem.
