I'm getting the same thing.  Very frustrating.  Tried creating an app-specific pwd - no good.  Following.

Hi @bkathrins

 

Thank you for the screenshot.

What camera and phone are you using? What version is the app on?

Do you observe the same when streaming to Youtube/Twitch?

 

Thanks!

Hero 8 Black.  Google Pixel 3XL.  Quik verson 8.7.  Android 11.  I don't have enough subscribers to stream to Youtube and don't have a Twitch account.  That's why I wanted to get the Facebook Live working.

Hi,

I know that there was some Facebook issues preventing login to Facebook to make a Live Streaming.
https://www.reddit.com/r/RagnarokMobile/comments/mqibk7/question_logging_into_this_app_with_facebook...

So maybe this is related I will test this later on.


Have you tried doing the live streaming via RTMP?

Hi,

I've tested on my end this morning and I'm getting the same issue.
Sadly I don't think it's on our end but it's an issue coming from Facebook

The procedure doesn't work. The application stops working.

Are you saying that it crashes?
I'm testing right now - don't forget to hit GO LIVE on the Facebook page once your app and camera are ready, that's one thing also.
I'm testing a live to my FB person right now and it's working fine.
Maybe check your internet connection, it's best to use WIFI so the connection is stable.

Yes the app crashes sometimes.
When I set RTMP I am connected to wifi I have the RTMP URL inserted. and the resolution set to 720P. When I click continue nothing happens the app takes me back to the live stream selection.

For the RTMP link, make sure you have both the server URL and after that the key
Hit GO LIVE on the Facebook page as well.

You could try to delete and install again the app just in case it needs a fresh install (it deletes all content so make sure to save everything you need)

@sunnyflare25518 The screen I posted is from the Facebook web browser page, I took that from my computer screen.

This is using the RTMP method.

Sadly this is an issue observed by lots of users also on other apps, it's on Facebook side.
Use the RTMP method via your computer web browser that would be the best solution.
