Facebook comments

Would love to be able to read Facebook comments within Wirecast. Found it doesn't refresh properly on FB Live in the brower and have to watch my stream on my mobile to keep track of FB Live comments

  • Please do make the feature request. I assume you mean being able to overlay the comments over the stream as we can do with Twitter.

  • CraigS Couldn't one use a DP or NDI input of a browser window portion containing the chat and overlay it that way?

  • Adam Blainey Yes but some may want more direct implementation. In a case like this, I'd like the developers to have a look and consider the options.

  • I love wirecast but Belive.tv has had the Facebook live comments across the screen the entire time. (about a year now)

  • Ben Wilson they don't seem to be comparable. Their website requires a sign up. There's no information about the software, only links to an app with no instructions. Seems to be all backend at first glance rather than a standalone switcher compositor encoder.

  • CraigS Belive.tv is a cloud service but it does what I wish Wirecast would do. Belive has been free for a year or so and just switched last week out of Beta. During a live broadcast using that service, I can see comment thread from facebook live and I can click on any one of them at a time and display. It displays it like a bottom third bar and includes their emoticon/profile pic with the comment.

  • Ben Wilson It may not be part of Facebook's API for software development so cloud use might be a different technology. By all means, make the feature request.

    LP will log it for you.

  • CraigS  This feature was also requested at NAB 2017 at both the Telestream booth and Facebook pavilion.

  • Benjamin Solah Try using Titler Live 3 Express (free with Wirecast Studio 8)... it can grab your Facebook comments and even let you search and filter them in a browser on any device on your local network!  Downloads are available in the download center or from the NewBlue website.

  • Thanks guys. Still need to wait until I can afford to upgrade, keen to check out the new feature, but I was more asking to see the feed of comments for myself, not to display for viewers. Kinda of like how you can see how many viewers you have.

  • Benjamin Solah Perhaps read them without taking them live? See the Social Express tab in the tutorial.

  • I'll have a look once I upgrade. Hoping there's some performance improvements to Wirecast too, my MacBook Air seems to struggle to do anymore when it runs Wirecast.

  • Benjamin Solah It's possible the Air is being taxed. There are some encoder performance improvements in Wirecast 8 but the Air has very limited CPU resources. Wirecast will have issues as the CPU use approaches 80%
