IMPORTANT: Light Cast Media has no control over the quality of output or ad placement in Facebook Live or YouTube. Facebook may input different ads at different points in your broadcast. Light Cast Media has no control of the content or placement of these advertisements.
DO NOT broadcast your worship services to Facebook Live or YouTube. Both systems have music detection systems in place. If either service detects potentially copyrighted music during your services, they will stop your broadcast and/or suspend your account.
First, get your stream set up using our live transcoder.
Next, create your Facebook publish point.
Click “Live Video”
Make sure that “Use a persistent stream key” is checked.
Click “Settings” near the top right corner of this screen. Click “Live Video”
Select “Publish this as a continuous live video”. This will prevent Facebook from storing your stream, but also reduce the chances that copyrighted music will be detected, which could result in suspension of your Facebook page or account.
Keep this window open.
After logging in to your Light Cast Media account, select Media → Transcoder
Click “External Services” to expand.
Copy and paste the “Server URL” and “Persistent Stream Key” from Facebook and click “Save”
Broadcast your service to the Light Cast Media Cloud Transcoder.
A few minutes before your sermon begins (near the end of any music), click “Start” under External Services.
Go back to Facebook and create a Live post or preview your scheduled post. You should see a preview of your stream 10-30 seconds after you clicked “Start” from the Light Cast Media site.
When you are happy with the starting point, click “Go Live”.
