Wirecast encoder settings for live streaming to Facebook with RTMP and No 1 Stream Limit!
What exact settings do I use in Wirecast to go live to my Facebook page and avoid the one stream limit?

Will you join me in taking a look at this because I don’t know where you even see or learn this, and it will allow you to get the very best experience out of live streaming on Facebook?

Here are the exact settings I use in my encoder today and I have to show you screenshots of this because when you put the stream key in, that’s a secret key. If I give you my stream key, you can live stream to my Facebook page.

I use the persistent live streaming key that Facebook gives me and I put it on Wirecast.

I named it “Facebook Page” because I can stream separately to my Facebook page, group and profile, and each has different benefits and downsides.

If you want to just use the “RTMP Server,” then you can live stream to several different destinations at once.

Now, according to the Facebook’s Terms & Conditions, developers are not allowed to make applications with built-in live streaming that can do Facebook, YouTube and anything else at the same time.

Therefore, when using Wirecast if you simply add Facebook and try to stream to Facebook you will discover it won’t let you live stream to anything else at the same time. If you want to live stream to Facebook and YouTube at the same time, all you need to do is set it up as an RTMP server and live stream that way, and in which case you can live stream to Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, whatever, all at the same time.

I do it this way because I want to live stream to different destinations at once and this allows me to do it.

Here are the encoder settings. I just use “RTMP Server,” and then this is inside the custom 1080p encoding I use for Facebook.

I created this myself and you can probably use slightly different settings and it will work. I will show you the reference page from Facebook where they talk about the standards.

I put it in 1920 by 1080, which I believe I can do because I’m a verified page. I think the documentation says a maximum of 1280 by 720, and up until last week, I was live streaming and I didn’t even realize it was at that lower resolution.

I put 30 frames per second.

I put 3,500 for the average bit rate to make room for the audio bit rate because Facebook says the maximum bit rate should be 4,000 kilobits per second, and I think you combine the average bit rate of both the audio and the video encoding for the total.

Therefore, you want to include that audio encoding because if the maximum is 4,000 and you put the average bit rate to 4,000 into video, and then you throw another little bit over, it will go over what the maximum recommended is.

I use “Main” profile on here.

Facebook wants a key frame every two seconds, and I’m doing 30 frames per second
