Going live with a scheduled Facebook Live broadcast

I understand the process for scheduling a Facebook Live broadcast, but when the time comes for feed to go live, nothing happens until the notice on the Facebook page expires. How do I activate the live broadcast at the scheduled time?

Hi Scott,

At present you can only initiate Facebook live broadcast when the meeting is live. Moderator need to click on "start broadcast" to begin streaming on Facebook. Kindly ensure there is no pop up blocker on the browser to complete the streaming.

Please refer the below walk through video on onsocial personal:


Hope this is helpful!

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,

Hi Radhika, 

Are you saying that BlueJeans cannot connect to the scheduled broadcast, but can only start a new broadcast on Facebook? Is there not a place to enter the streaming key?

Hello Corey,

Radhika is correct, we currently do not have a method of placing a BlueJeans broadcast into a scheduled Live post on Facebook.

I have tried the method of inputting the stream key from the BlueJeans meeting into a scheduled live broadcast, but the stream key is only good for the meeting as long as you are broadcasting.

Hi Grzegorz,

The process of broadcasting a meeting on Facebook live remains the same. You need to start the broadcast manually once the meeting is live.
