Broadcasting Facebook Live / Periscope through Lithium Community

Hello friends, 

Every week our company broadcasts a live Q&A chat through both Periscope and Facebook Live. 

I am wondering if there's a way to live stream / broadcast either of these platforms through the Lithium Community platform? 

At the moment, a lot of our discussion board users won't look at social channels but having these broadcast through our Community might go a way to solving that. 

Thanks,
Alan

Hi @doug_ebay

I'm pretty sure script tags are disabled for security reasons. I think a custom component in Studio (or a Custom Content Element that can be manipulated in Admin with your embed code) would be a way forward here.

Thanks,

We have the same issue with iframe code too...some will work, some doesn't. I suspect it's some Facebook setting when the video is uploaded to Facebook, but can't figure it out.

 

This works:

<p><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fajplusenglish%2Fvid..." width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" allowtransparency="true"></iframe></p>

 

This doesn't:

<p><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FeBayForBusiness%2Fv..." width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" allowtransparency="true"></iframe></p>

@PaoloT, any idea why we would get this message? We do Facebook live vids, and get the share URL, but we get this error message when trying to add to a post. Happens for videos LIVE, and videos that have ended, after right clicking to get the share URL.

Another option could be to upload vids to YouTube after they have ended, but ideally we'd like to get the Facebook livesteam working on a community post during events.

Thanks!

Doug




We normally use iframe to embed in a post. That seems to work well.

Thanks @spenumaka that does seem to work in theory, but we still get an error message with our vids. Must be some Facebook setting or something.
