This feature is designed to allow Chime users to add a Facebook Live stream block into Custom Pages or Chime Landing Pages.
Schedule a Facebook Live Stream
Before you start, make sure you have a Facebook Live stream scheduled and that you have the Facebook Live embed code. Here are the steps:
- Access Facebook Live Producer at facebook.com/live/producer.
- Click "Schedule a Live Video" on the left-sidebar.
- A new window will appear on the left side of the screen. Scroll down and fill in the time and date the video will go live, where the post should appear, and the title and description of the live video.
- If all of the previously-mentioned fields have been filled out correctly, the grey "Schedule Live Video" button at the bottom of the page will turn blue. Click this button to schedule your broadcast.
- Finally, click Settings > Stream > Embed Code, and then copy the embed code to use further along in the process.
If needed, the video found HERE might provide some useful context on how to set this up.
Add the Facebook Live Block
You can add this type of block to either a Chime Landing Page or a Chime Custom Page.
Click “+ Add New Blocks” on the left menu and the block library will appear.
Find the option for "Facebook Live" and then click "Save" to have it added as a block on the page.
Edit the Facebook Live Block
Double-click the YouTube Live Block or click the "Edit" button. The following are the options that can be edited on the YouTube Live block:
- Live Name. This is the title of the block.
- Live Description. The description of the block.
- Live Embed Type. Choose the integrate type for the Facebook Live Block.
- Live Embed Code: This is the recommended option because it's easy to find. Paste the code that was copied at the end of the "Schedule a Facebook Live Stream" step at the beginning of the article.
