Thread: Question about live to facebook...

  1. #1

    Question about live to facebook...

    I probably should't ask this but instead of entering the settings to go live to facebook and getting them to jive would it be possible for the TriCaster output to "Take Over" the built in webcam output signal and then you could just "Go Live" right from face book. I imagine using a second machine pulling the output of the TriCaster over NDI into it and projecting it's image at same resolution as a webcam...AM I CRAZY? maybe...but I have a TriCaster so I'm really special

    You could use Virtual Camera in the NDI Tools to do exactly this - configure Virtual Camera to take one of your TriCaster NDI feeds, select "NewTek NDI Video" as your webcam, "Line (NewTek NDI Audio)" as you mic, and you should be good.

    Let me know how it works for you...

    Integrating as a webcam with Facebook (or other live platforms) lets you feed them at what is probably the most basic and slowest changing method. Having this as a backup option when FB decides to make another semi-regular update to their API is a good thing in general - even if it isn't the first option you'd choose for your production.

    Good Luck!
