To stream over Facebook, you have 3 options.
Option 1: Use the DaCast social share code
To get this, you should already have a live stream set up or a VOD uploaded.
Second, select that particular live stream or on demand file. Next, go to and look for the Facebook share code here. Copy this code:
Now go to Facebook and start to make a post, either on a friend’s wall, your own wall or on a brand page. Now paste that Facebook share code into the post and the title and splashscreen of your video content should appear. You can add a message to this if you want. When added, viewer can click a play icon in your post and launch the stream or the video in a new tab.
Option 2: Multi Destination Streaming
This option allows you to launch a stream directly in your Facebook feed. It is based on the muli destination streaming technique that can be directly set up in your encoder.
