You can easily connect live video from Facebook to Preneur Academy. Note that at the moment, Facebook Live adds around 15 seconds to every broadcast, regardless of streaming software. We recommend using YouTube or Vimeo if you'd like to avoid the delay.
If you'd like to upload a prerecorded video, we recommend doing so with YouTube. Using YouTube for prerecorded videos allows them to be fully synched in Preneur Academy meaning all members will view the video at the same pace.
If you do not have a preference for synched video, you can upload your prerecorded video from Facebook.
Facebook uses algorithms to detect copyright material. However, the algorithm is known to mistakenly block videos from being embedded and can be unpredictable and hard to resolve. For this reason, we recommend using YouTube for all your streaming.
Check to see if the video audience is set to Public. Facebook only allows Public videos to be shared to a third-party platform.
