Facebook live OBS – how to start Live streaming – For you to stream on Facebook live OBS, all you just need is your smartphone and an internet connection. But with OBS you can be at the top of the game.
With Fb live OBS you have the opportunity to connect with your followers in real-time.

It is very easy to start facebook live through your phone. Easy and quick to set up, but you are relying on your phone’s camera for sight and sound action. Here is how it works:
Facebook Live on your Smartphone
With this simple step by steps stated below. You are on your way to successful live streaming:
First; type what is on your mind on the top of your newsfeed or type what you want to search at the top of your business page or brand page.
Tap live video
Write an optional description for your broadcast
Tap GO live to begin your broadcast
Click on finish when you want to end your broadcast
Note you can run Facebook Live from your desktop by using the third party Belive or other similar software.
Facebook Live on Your Desktop
With a webcam on your laptop you can stream Facebook live on your PC by following the steps below:
Type what is on your mind? At the top of your news feed write it at the top of your business page.
Click Live Video. For business, you have to be sure you are posting on your business page, not a personal page – else you would not see “starts a Live Video.”
Once that is done, click NEXT
Click Go Live once you are happy with the preview.
NOTE: The best way to run Facebook live, in my opinion, is by using OBS (Open Source Software) which allows you to Livestream for free.
