What is Full HD?
Full HD, also known as 1080p, is a high-quality graphics resolution that shoots in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. This will deliver rich and detailed top-notch videos to your audience.
BeLive is currently the only platform that supports Full HD streaming on Facebook! You shouldn't be worried about the resolution being automatically changed to 720p.
