Facebook and YouTube

Live streaming to Facebook and YouTube is easy to implement and deliver.

Facebook and YouTube have removed the cost of having to stream to a paid live streaming server service and allows the free streaming of your live content.

They do have their quirks especially around it’s Content ID management system but that has slowly become easier to work with as far as preparing for copyright material to be live streamed on your channel.
