Using RTMPS with vMix

vMix supports the use of  RTMPS servers when streaming. This support began in vMix 21, so in order to use RTMPS you will need to have vMix 21 or later. If you purchased vMix in 2013 or later, you can update to vMix 21 for free. If you have purchased before 2013, you'll need to update to the latest version of vMix for $60
Facebook Live requires the use of RTMPS in order to stream to their platform. You will need to make sure that you are using vMix 21 or later for your Facebook Live streams.

If you are using the Custom RTMP method, you just need to copy and paste the URL from the Facebook Live Create page. This is the same method as using an RTMP address.
