Why can’t I live stream to a Facebook group on iOS?

Trying to go LIVE on a Facebook group, not on my personal page. I keep reading that’s now an option on the iOS app but it only gives me the option of “public” “friends” and “only me” under share to.

@moorespeed, live streaming directly to a Facebook group isn't currently an option. See Getting Started With Live Streaming for other live streaming options.

Anyhow, we appreciate the insight as it can help us build a better experience with our products. We'll relay this information to the team in charge. Let us know if anything else comes up. Stay stoked & have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!

Re: Why can’t I live stream to a Facebook group on iOS?

Hello,

 

I don't understand your answer.

 

Here's a cut & paste extracted from the link you provided. (My emphasis)

 

PRO TIP: This is where you choose to stream on a Facebook profile (Public, Friends, Only Me) or the dropdown menu will feature the Facebook Group(s) or Page(s) that you are an admin of.

 

According to this, I should be able to stream as I am an admin of the FB page.

Unfortunately, the option isn't featured on the dropdown menu.

 

I've seen a video on YouTube which showed those other options available so I guess it should be possible.

 

Thanks for helping.

@fireydive08787, the GoPro App for iOS mobile devices now have the option to Live Stream to a Facebook page that you manage. Be sure to have the latest version of the GoPro App installed on your device. 
 
On the Set Up Live Stream screen, you'll have the option to select your Facebook Page under the "share to" section. 

 

 

Live streaming to a Facebook Group should be done through RTMP Link.

 

If you're using an Android mobile device, several users were able to live stream to a Facebook Page/Group via RTMP Link. Check out this thread for more information about their workflow: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Hero-7-Black-live-stream-to-Facebook-PAGE/td-p/241196/page/2
