How To Video
Stream live 360-degree video on FacebookFacebook now supports live video broadcasting in 360 degrees. Here's how to get started.
This is my office everybody. Facebook now lets you stream live in 360 degree. It's easy if you have a compatible camera including the new Samsung Gear 360 and Giroptic IO. It even works with the $45,000 dollar Nokia Ozo. But if you don't own one of these specific 360 cameras, you can still stream live. More on that later. Here's how to go live with one of the compatible cameras the Insta360. The purpose will be similar to the others too, but make sure you have the latest version of the Insta360. The app, and Facebook on your phone. From the camera screen, tap the TV icon and then choose Facebook Live. Select bind to Facebook to link your account, and then set the privacy level for the stream. You can also broadcast 360 to any groups or pages you manage. Enter a title and confirm, then hit the big red live button to start broadcasting. We have five people watching, it's amazing. It's just sitting here. When you broadcasting you get a view count, comments, and like just like a regular Facebook live. If you're viewing the 360 broadcast, just tilt a sign or drag on the screen to spin around. You'll need a strong connection to make sure things don't look blocky, Facebook recommends at least 4 megabits per second The camera app might also let you adjust the streaming bitrate, too. And if you don't have one of those specific cameras mentioned earlier, you can go to facebook.com/live/create to generate a server URL and key you can use in many other cameras. [BLANK_AUDIO]
