Facebook Live Streaming is Down - Please Use RTMP or YouTube - May 29, 2023 (Last Updated)

We apologize If you are experiencing issues live streaming directly to Facebook Groups and Pages from within Cinamaker Director Studio. 

On May 3, 2023 Facebook informed us that they are having issues with their direct live-streaming integration to Facebook Groups and Pages from within Cinamaker.

Unfortunately, after countless unanswered attempts to get a response to resolve this Facebook issue, it appears Facebook has abandoned support of their direct Live integration. Regrettably, this is impacting all Cinamaker users who rely on live streaming to Facebook from the Cinamaker Director Studio app.

While we have not abandoned all hope in Facebook, we are suggesting two effective options at this time. Please refer to the following options and let us know if you have any questions or issues:

1. You can still send your live stream to Facebook Groups/Pages via the RTMPS option in Cinamaker. Click here for instructions to Live stream to Facebook Groups and/or Pages with RTMP
Alternatively, you may wish to send your live stream to YouTube Live. For details about streaming to YouTube, please follow these instructions: Live Stream to YouTube from Cinamaker Director Studio

We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
