IMPORTANT: Wirecast Streaming to Facebook Groups/Events

On April 4th, 2018, Facebook announced an update on their plans to restrict data access, see official article: https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2018/04/restricting-data-access/ 

These changes have impacted Wirecast by not allowing users to post to groups, events, and setting a page as a sponsor. Everything else seems to work so far.

Our engineering team is working closely with Facebook to get this issue resolved.

In the meantime, we recommend you try the following workarounds:

Create a RTMP live stream to Facebook.

Using the Facebook persistent stream key option.

At this time, we don't have an estimated fix, but will keep you update when it has been resolved.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards implementing compatibility.
