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, 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
IMPORTANT, it is not possible to edit destination of the broadcast after you clicked SAVE, but you can edit time, description and cover picture.
You can access your scheduled broadcasts by going to the studio, selecting Facebook and clicking "Schedule", then select the needed one under "Scheduled streams" as shown in the picture below. This way you can also edit the time, title and description and hit SAVE.
HOW TO START YOUR SCHEDULED BROADCAST

Once you are in the studio Connect your Camera, Click "Show in Stream" to move it to the streaming area and click the "Start" button.
