In addition to hosting your virtual public meeting on a Facebook feed (personal feeds not recommended), you may also host it on a Facebook page. A video on your Facebook page can later be edited. This can be very useful for admins who want to trim their video for one reason or another, such as to remove dead air time at the beginning or end.

To begin, you'll want to navigate to Pages on your Facebook home page.

Here you can either create a new page or click on an existing page. This page is where the meeting video will be located.

On your page, click the Live button below Create post.

Choose the first option to Go live and click the Select button.

On the following screen you will want to choose and/or note the following settings:

  1. Choose Streaming software under Select a video source.

  2. Note the Stream key; this will be copied shortly and pasted into WebEx.

  3. Note the Server URL as this will also be copied and pasted into WebEx.

  4. Click the text entry field within Share to story to enter details about the name and description of the video.

Open your WebEx client now and start a meeting. Click the ellipsis at the bottom nav of the video client and click Start live streaming.

On the modal that opens, click Other streaming services. Do not choose Facebook Live above.

The modal that opens next is where you will want to paste your stream link and stream key from the Facebook Live video setup page. Use "Facebook Live" for the first field. Once data is entered into each field, the Start streaming button will turn blue and can be clicked to begin streaming.

At this point, back on your Facebook Live video setup page, you should see the video from WebEx in the Video preview and the blue Go live button turn blue. Click the Go live button to make the video live on your Facebook page.

With the video now live, navigate to the Settings drop-down menu item on the left and click Live tab. Then copy the Live video URL on the right.

Navigate now to the meeting editor for the VPM in PublicInput and paste the stream link for the live video into the Streaming Video field with Facebook Live chosen as the streaming option.

The WebEx video streamed to your Facebook Live page should now be visible on the meeting live site.

To stop the live video and begin to edit it, click the red End live video button in the lower-left corner of the Facebook Live video page.

To trim your video now that it has ended, navigate on the left-hand sidebar to Dashboard and click Trim your video within the Quick actions section.

Here you may trim the video and click Trim Video when done.

This edited video will be shown on your meeting's live site for users to view.
