Recently, I was trying to stream some content from my phone to multiple social media platform starting with Facebook. Here’s how I got it working.

I come from an android background and this was my first time working with Wowza and Facebook. So after a few sessions of research, head-scratching and tinkering, I was making some steady progress.

Note: If you need to connect to Facebook via Wowza using their streaming cloud and not specifically with the REST API then you can check out that guide here: https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-stream-to-facebook-live-from-wowza-streaming-cloud

Prerequisites:

  1. Have an outgoing RTMP video stream ready.
  2. A Wowza cloud account.
