    • Who is using Facebook Live?
      Let\'s take a look at who is currently using Facebook Live. We tour the Facebook Live Map and jump around the globe to view live streams and understand how the platform is being used. 
    • Facebook Live Overview
      Let\'s take a tour of what is possible with Facebook Live. This new live streaming tool from Facebook is completely free and you probably already use the platform. So let\'s familiarize ourselves with this powerful live streaming tool!
    • Facebook Live Reactions
      Facebook Live Reactions are the key to creating engaging live streams on Facebook! See the download below to get started with our Facebook Reaction Creation Kit. 
    • Facebooks Live Streaming Web App
      Facebook just released a new Live Streaming Application. If you don\'t see this on your Facebook page when logged in on a Windows or Mac computer DONT WORRY. Facebook is slowly rolling out this new feature. 
    • Learning to live stream. What is RTMP?
      In this lecture we review the RTMP streaming protocol needed to live stream to Facebook. We show you where you need to go to obtain your unique RTMP Server and Stream Key required to stream to Facebook. Once you have everything copied down you are ready to start streaming with one of the following streaming software solutions we will review below. 
    • Live streaming to Facebook with OBS
      OBS is one of the most basic live streaming software solutions available on the market today. This software is also completely free and there are plugins available to extend the capabilities. You can download OBS at the link provided in the resources below. Also, if you are interested in build a virtual set see the downloads in Wirecast and vMix. I have included the files you need to build a virtual set with OBS. If you need more help see my course on Green Screens and Virtual Sets.

    • The importance of a preshow
      Setting up a pre-show is incredible important because it gives your audience time to gather before the show. Just because you click the live button doesn\'t mean you can\'t give yourself another 5-10 minutes before the show starts. Consider playing music and using a countdown timer to notify the audience of your planned start time. 
    • Credit Rolls and Post Show Q&As
      At PTZOptics we host a live show every Friday and after over 100 live shows we have found that creating a show with structure is the most professional and effective way to live stream. By using Credits at the end of your live stream you gain the ability to thank everyone involved in your live stream PLUS you can claim your registered trademarks and copyrights. Finally, a post show Q&A is a great way to boost engagement with your audience. 
    • Live streaming to Facebook with vMix
      vMix is one of my personal favorite live streaming software solutions. You can download a free 60 day trial at the link below to get started. This is a very basic tutorial to show you the power of vMix (Which was used to record every other video except this one). If you would like a full tutorial on vMix check out my vMix Master Class Course. 
    • Learning to live stream to Facebook with xSplit
      xSplit is a step up from OBS. I really like xSplit for live streaming because it is incredibly easy to use. If you are looking for a simple way to set up live streams without having to use plug-ins and scripts with OBS xSplit might be the best choice for you. Like all the other live streaming software solutions for Facebook Live xSplit has a free trial. If you like what you see consider downloading xSplit and giving it a try. Also, if you are interested in build a virtual set see the downloads in Wirecast and vMix. I have included the files you need to build a virtual set with xSplit. If you need more help see my course on Green Screens and Virtual Sets.
