Want to announce your live show a few days in advance? Let's check how to do it in the new Be.Live studio!
Note, If you want to stream a scheduled show with Be.Live it has to be scheduled in your Be.Live studio as well. At this point, it's not possible to link it to a show that was already scheduled directly on Facebook.
STEP 1. As always, open Chrome or Safari browser on your computer and go to https://be.live/. Now click Start Broadcasting (you may need to create your Be.Live account first).
STEP 2. Click Set destination/Edit Destination, select Facebook and click on the "Schedule" icon next to it. If you are going live in your group, please add the Be.Live extension to its settings.
- If you are using Safari and see a spinning circle under Facebook, press this icon besides the address bar(if it's not there, try refreshing the page). This way you will grant permission to Facebook.
Once you do that, please, fill in all the needed details (set time, upload cover image, select destination and your post's description). The optimal ratio for images used in scheduled broadcast posts is 16:9, e.g. 1280x720 and doesn't exceed 3 mb, make sure the file's name is written in Latin letters and doesn't contain symbols.
NOTE, it's possible to schedule a broadcast from 10 min to up to 7 days from now and you will need to choose among the given options in the calendar.
You are required to start the broadcast within 10 minutes after the scheduled time. Alternatively, you can start the broadcast earlier.
STEP 3. Don't forget to click SAVE to actually schedule your broadcast! You can check what it looks like on Facebook by clicking on the broadcast title in the studio (it will redirect you to this post on Facebook).

HOW TO EDIT YOUR SCHEDULED BROADCAST
To access a scheduled broadcast, simply click on "Scheduled streams" and select the correct broadcast from the dropdown menu:
Afterwards, stream settings will appear on the left side of the studio. From here, you may edit or change any broadcast details. Note that you can only change the time, cover image, and stream title and description. Don't forget to hit Save to apply any new changes.
Finally, connect your camera, move it to the broadcasting section by clicking "Show in Stream" and you're ready to start!
If you need the link to the upcoming stream to share it with your audience, you can find it in your BeLive account: be.live > My profile > My broadcasts:
