Manual Instructions For Using Custom RTMP

If you are using an older version of vMix or need to stream to Facebook manually, you'll just need to use the custom RTMP Server method. Your Facebook page may also need to be Verified. 

Step 1

Log into your Facebook account and then navigate to the Facebook Live producer dashboard: https://www.facebook.com/live/producer

Step 2

Here you can make changes to your stream. Do you want to stream right now? Do you want to schedule your stream? You can do that on the left.
You can also choose other settings like whether you want to use a persistent stream key, which means you don't have to enter the key each time into vMix when you want to setup the stream.

Step 3

Then you can copy your Server URL and your Stream key into vMix and start streaming.

Step 4

Head back to Facebook to preview your stream and when you want to go live on Facebook....click the Go Live button!
