Once you've created your meeting and connected it to Webex, you're ready to start your Virtual Public Meeting. If you're planning to use Facebook Live to handle your meeting broadcast, the steps below walk through going live.

1. Start your Webex meeting
We recommend getting started about 30 minutes before your meeting to give yourself some breathing room.

2. When you're settled in and ready to go live, click 'Start live Streaming'
When you're ready to start recording, click the ellipsis at the bottom of your Webex meeting screen and click 'Start Live Streaming'.

3. Authenticate with Facebook

Next, you’ll need to log into Facebook and authenticate your account details.

Note: When you set up the live stream, you will be able to specify the page from which you wish to live stream, instead of from your personal page. You must be an administrator for the page from which you’re live streaming.

4. Choose a page to broadcast to and give the video a name for future reference.
In the Start Live Streaming dialog, create a title for the meeting, e.g. “Example Meeting”.

Because you don’t want to post this video to your personal account, select Share on Your Page and then select a page name. You will be given a list of pages for which you are an administrator. The audience is “Public” by default.

Now, go ahead and click Start Streaming.

5. Get the live stream video url
To view the live stream and get the URL for the post, go to the relevant page in Facebook (the one you selected in the Page name field above, not your personal account).

To pull the link address (URL for the live stream) scroll down to the live stream post. You can pull the URL from the timestamp (it may say "Just now").

Right-click on the timestamp and select Copy Link Address.

6. Add this URL to your meeting editor in PublicInput.com
Paste this URL into Publicinput and the live stream will automatically be pulled into your meeting:

If you click 'Hide live stream until the meeting start time', participants won't see the video until the event start time.

After the event ends, the full Facebook Live recording will show on the public event page.
