[Facebook Live] Facebook Live streaming with RadioBOSS
« on: November 24, 2018, 10:23:46 AM »
The guide shows how to create a Facebook Live stream using RadioBOSS. The stream will consist of a static image (e.g. radio station logo) and audio from what is playing in RadioBOSS.

Install FFMpeg
1. Download FFMpeg from https://www.ffmpeg.org (you will need Windows build) or use the file hosted on our server: https://dl.djsoft.net/ffmpeg.zip
2. Unpack FFMpeg archive. In the example we'll use C:\ffmpeg location.

Get Facebook Live streaming credentials
1. Visit https://www.facebook.com/live/create and click the Create live stream option.
2. It is recommended to enable the "Use a persistent stream key" option to prevent stream key from changing on each broadcast.
c. The Server URL and Persistent Stream Key will be needed for the next step

Create custom encoder in RadioBOSS
1. Open Settings and navigate to Broadcasting. Click the Advanced button and then click theCustom encoders button.
2. In the custom encoders window click the + button, name the encoder ("FB Live" in the example) and enter the following command:
Quote (selected)
C:\ffmpeg.exe -r 30 -loop 1 -i "path_to_image" -f s16le -ac {Channels} -ar {SampleRate} -i - -c:a aac -b:a 128k -c:v h264 -b:v 768k -g 60 -f flv "stream"

Change the path_to_image part to actual image location, e.g. C:\radio\background.jpg

Change the stream part to Server URL and Persistent Stream Key, following each other. For instance,
Server URL is rtmp://live-api-s.facebook.com:80/rtmp/
Persistent Stream Key is 10204966136309946?ds=1&s_sw=0&s_vt=api-s&a=AbwYXNiE0zQsjgJY
The stream would be
Code: [Select]
rtmp://live-api-s.facebook.com:80/rtmp/10204966136309946?ds=1&s_sw=0&s_vt=api-s&a=AbwYXNiE0zQsjgJY
The example of how the final command would look like:
Quote (selected)
C:\ffmpeg.exe -r 30 -loop 1 -i "C:\radio\background.jpg" -f s16le -ac {Channels} -ar {SampleRate} -i - -c:a aac -b:a 128k -c:v h264 -b:v 768k -g 60 -f flv "rtmp://live-api-s.facebook.com:80/rtmp/10204966136309946?ds=1&s_sw=0&s_vt=api-s&a=AbwYXNiE0zQsjgJY"

Start streaming
1. Add new encoder in RadioBOSS. Enter [IA]:8000:50 to the Server field.
2. At the bottom, select the "FB Live" encoder. Make sure the rest of the settings are at their defaults: sample rate is 44100, channels - stereo, bitrate - 128 kbps. Click OK.
3. Start music playback in RadioBOSS.

On successful connection, the report in the bottom-left corner will show the following message: Connected to server! (output N). and the stream will be available on the Facebook live page.

The Facebook page should now show the image and play audio (it can be muted by default on the facebook page).

Encoder closed (output 2) - possibly unsupported format. Restarting...

Please make sure all parameters for ffmpeg are correct and the credentials for streaming are actually working.

Dimitris thank you for your answer! I want to tell you the steps I'm taking to see what's wrong. step 1. download the file from the first download link. the problem I'm facing there is that I do not have an installation file how to install it. next step. I open the radioboss and then go to the relay. there I choose for advanced and in the name I write Facebook live. in the command I put the text that you have given us. my question now to them is. First, How do I install the file and secondly I will put facebook rtmp and password. thank you in advance for your answer!

It's not needed to be installed, you only need to extract the archive.

Anyway, the procedure currently is somewhat complex, so you may wish to wait until RadioBOSS has native support for RTMP streaming.

I did exactly as written in the instructions.
I connect to the server (Connected to server! (Output 1)), start the music and give the error "Encoder closed (output 1) - possibly unsupported format. Restarting ..."

You need to have something playing in RadioBOSS before a connection is made.
