    Basically you'd be able to stream continuously. In the announcement I read, it was mentioned that Facebook would not record in those situations.

    Facebook would have to release the new API to us. Please do fill out the form and ask our developers what the time line might be.

    For those interested note the following limitations from Facebook API description.

    Continuous Live

    Continuous live video is a recent addition to the Facebook Live product family. It supports an unlimited live stream on Facebook. Some great use cases for continuous live include live feeds of aquariums, museums, and zoos.

    Before streaming, please note:

    1. Continuous live will not generate a VOD
    2. Continuous live does not send notifications to followers
    3. If the broadcaster ends the live video, the post will be unpublished from the timeline, which means only the broadcast owner will see it.

  • The API doesn't need to be "released". It's out there already. It's just a matter of updating Wirecast with a UX addition that would allow the user to select between a regular live stream and an unlimited live stream.

    Having said that, I will certainly fill out that form.

    Thanks Craig.

    My understanding is that Facebook rolled this out a few weeks ago (late May) so we haven't implemented yet.

  • Any news on this yet? Will Wirecast 7 support Continuous 
    And also, will Wirecast 6.x support that too, or is an upgrade a must?

    We are working on the updated API features. They will be specific to Wirecast 7.
