To have us send your steam to Facebook Live, please temporarily use our Multi-Platform Stream Distribution method shown below to have us send your stream to Facebook Live. Facebook has made changes to their API that temporarily impacts the standard Sunday Streams Facebook Live integration. The method below will enable us to seamlessly continue to send your stream to Facebook Live. It will take a few minutes to set up the first time and after that will only need to start the stream and enter your title, description and click Go Live. Once the normal Facebook Live integration is working again, you can use the Facebook Live integration or continue using the way described below to stream to Facebook.

Short video demonstrating setting this up is available at https://www.sundaystreams.com/go/fblivempsd
