Have you tried the new Facebook Live built in screen sharing feature yet?
- No need to use third party apps.
- It’s easy to use.
- It’s built into Facebook, and it’s free.
- Less lag time than third party apps.
- Cannot switch between camera and screen sharing.
- No fixed logo or graphic overlays. Other apps have the option of including your logo, or other graphics to appear on screen. Facebook does not.
- No lower thirds. Lower thirds are the graphics and crawlers you see across the bottom of videos.
- No picture in picture mode. When sharing your screen, you don’t have the option to have a small video of yourself in part of the window.
- Videos quality isn’t the greatest.
I used it and when done it was hard to find it (group). I found in media, and later in the feed or board. But it didn’t share my screen. I thought maybe I missed some step, but now seeing your further notes I think it just didn’t do its job. Cos I definitely chose screenshare and ‘share’. Did you say it only works in Chrome??
When you select screen share, is there a way to share the computer audio rather than a microphone? I want to stream a previously recorded concert.
All the step works. But after clicking the Go Live, it appears “Unable to start Live video. Check your setting and try again?” So how do I fix this?
Facebook has been extremely glitchy lately! I just free black sex dating tried going live with Facebook Producer and got the same error you saw. I didn’t see any obvious way to fix it. A lot of people who go live regularly use apps like Streamyard and . Going live with either of those seems to be more reliable than using FB Producer. To use either of them you’ll connect to Facebook, just follow the prompts with either of them to get set up. Both of them offer a free version.
Hi Therese, thank you so much for mentioning BeLive! A lot has changed as well, and we added tons of new features, such as the ability to stream in 1080p and simulcasting to YouTube and Facebook. ??
Although it was hard to read the bottom of the screen while setting up, it wouldn’t rise so i could see better
My laptop can’t screen share it says ” if you’re experiencing an issu screen sharing a single chrome tab, try sharing your entire screen instead” pls help thank you
Hi, Can you still have audio of someone talking over the screen share? (planning on doing a live stream of a software tutorial and want to talk through the livestream)
You should be able to, just remember you’ll have to start out with screen sharing. (You can’t switch between screen sharing and video) Having said that though, Facebook has been extremely glitchy these days. Some things work for some but not for others. I’d do a quick test of this before your actual tutorial.
Hi, was using Facebook Live and in order to show my face I was using zoom (free version with just myself in a meeting) or wondershare filmora (record PC screen) or also loom (Cam only). But from last week even if I select share screen on Facebook Live, I am not able to use the camera with the other applications which tell me there is an issue with the camera. But if I start those programs first the camera is not an issue, but Facebook Live share screen does not work and reports me the the camera has a problem. Is there something I can do to solve this? I went live the last 8 weeks using any of the previous programs and all went well. Now I can’t do so. Can you help me?
