GoPro7 Black Live Streaming to Facebook Pages instead own profile?

I just bought GoPro7 Black just for its capability to live stream directly to Facebook and Youtube.

However the Facebook streaming is pretty much useless as it seems to allow only live streaming to your own profile. I admin a few different pages for publications and need to be able to stream directly within these pages.

Is there coming an update that allows this, streaming into pages where I am the owner/admin?

Re: GoPro7 Black Live Streaming to Facebook Pages instead own profile?

Hi @grendelb,

 

What version of GoPro App do you have installed? Ensure that you're on the most latest version.

 

I tested this out on my mobile iOS device and I was able to successfully perform a live stream directly to one of the pages I manage on Facebook. 

  1. Connect HERO7 Black camera to GoPro App, then swipe to Setup Live Stream. The app will ask you to login using your Facebook credentials.
  2. Once successfully logged in, the app will ask permission "GoPro would like to manage your Pages and publish as Pages you manage." Tap OK.
  3. Then under "Share To" section choose the page where you want the current live stream to be published at.

I also tested this out on an Android device and live streaming to a Facebook page is not available on the options as of now. You can check the workaround using RTMP instructions discussed on THIS post.

 

Hopefully this helps!
