Are you doing live broadcasts on Facebook, but would also love to embed a video on your website to attract more viewers and create engagement? Then you’re in the right place! Here is an article on how to do that.

To be embedded, your broadcast has to meet the following requirements:

  1. The broadcast should be live on your timeline or page OR scheduled on the page
  2. The broadcast should be public (If you embed a video and the audience of the video changes from Public, a message saying the embedded video is no longer available will appear on the website.) You can check out this article on how to check and change your privacy settings. 

How to embed a broadcast on any website

The easiest way to embed a live video on any website is to copy and paste the embed code available for the post with the broadcast. You just need to have access to HTML editing of the block or page, no coding required!  

Just follow the next steps: 

First of all, create or schedule a broadcast using Be.Live. Note, your broadcast needs to be live on the timeline or live/scheduled on the page to embed it on the website.

If your broadcast is already live on the timeline or page: 

1. Go to Facebook and open the post with the broadcast by clicking on the time it was published or simply by clicking on the video itself. 

2. Click on three dots > Embed:

3. Copy and paste the code to your website. You can include a full post (with description and reactions) or only the video. You can also go to the Advanced Settings to set up the size of the embedded video and other features. 

If your broadcast is scheduled on a business page: 

1. Open the post and click on Edit Your Details 

2. Click on Embed this video icon in the right bottom corner:

3. Copy and paste on the website


If you don’t see Embed this video button, please make sure the broadcast is scheduled to go live on the page, and that Allow embedding checkbox is checked in the Settings: 

Important: DO not change any other details in the Edit Your details window. If you want to change details about the broadcast, please do it directly in Be.Live  Studio.
