Should an issue seemingly unique to Facebook be encountered, or so much as confirmed in discussion with a BoxCast representative, you may report the issue as outlined here.

As of January 2020, Facebook doesn't support streaming to EVENTS through its API. If you're trying to stream to an event, you'll want to set up another RTMP destination.

BoxCast gives you the ability to stream to your Facebook page, timeline, group, or event. In this article, we'll outline how to stream to your group or event.

Step 1

Log in to the BoxCast Dashboard and go to Settings, followed by Integrations, and link your Facebook account. If your Facebook account is already linked, please click the Re-Link Integration button if this is your first time streaming to a group or an event.
