Hi guys, it looks like I figured out how to do Facebook embeds:




1) Choose "Facebook vid" in the "Insert Special Item" menu

2) grab the "copy link" at facebook

Hopefully this will be useful to share some cool new content here!

Great, this could be useful, I often see FB videos that I'd like to put on here. Nice one, thanks Kris.

That's really cool! I like this feature!

I wonder if it's possible to embed Facebook Live videos while being live?

It could be an interesting and cool feature smile.gif I would probably make a topic and post some live jamming that way if it's possible cool.gif

TEST:




EDIT: It works. We can go live in threads directly from Facebook smile.gif Just checked and it was running directly LIVE in the thread as well as on Facebook. Great stuff!

Looks like we can actually comment directly to Facebook as well. Not sure, now that option disappeared, but it showed something about comments and likes.

It says "video doesn't exist anymore" for me on that. Did you save the video? And check that it showed during?

Very cool! The embed should have support for "Include full post" though I am not sure where to look for it. But maybe that's what you spotted.

Yeah, it kinda popped up in one instance when I was playing the video again, but then reloading the page it disappeared.

Ben what's your streaming setup/configuration?


This was just running through OBS. I have a bit of a weird setup, as I like a mix between physical and software options. Basically I just run all computer sound through one audio interface, it goes from a headphones out into the line in on my motherboard. It collects all sound from my computer incl. Reaper, YouTube and such. My other audio interface has my mic and is only available via OBS and some virtual audio cable. I couldn't get this to work with only one audio interface (at least the one I had wouldn't do it), as it didn't allow enough inputs to run to OBS in the way I wanted. It didn't give me a lot of options or control. With these two audio interfaces I have physical knobs in front of me (on the two interfaces) to control mic level (for speaking or muting) as well as levels of the backing track, guitar and so on.

I'm not sure I explain it that well, as it's a result of a lot of fiddling and trying to realize some ideas I had. I've had it disconnected completely before and can set it up again, so that's not an issue, but I'm not sure about the actual terms for these things are called.

I run Reaper with Neural DSP, but not really much else. If I wanted to I could hook up my mic to Reaper and do it all via one audio interface probably with better mic quality (noise reduction, compression etc., though I think I can do that via OBS too), but since I do some casual voice chatting on Discord and other places I don't want to have to open Reaper every time. At the moment I do have to open OBS to run virtual audio cable, virtual camera and some other stuff on Discord, but that's alright, as we often use video chats and it allows me to be a bit creative there as well. It also allows me to just do relatively quick recordings or streams with OBS. The video below is just recorded from a stream on Facebook using OBS. Levels weren't set up all that great, so you can't really hear what I say at the beginning, but it was mostly just me talking to myself.

I have also previous mic'ed up my amp while doing live streams, but that is a bit more tricky, as it means a mic for the cab that should not pick up my voice when I speak into the mic at my computer. It was a bit tricky and a lot of fiddling with levels. It turned out okay, but not perfect. VST plugins for guitar sound are much easier to deal with, as if I use headphones there is no sound from the speakers going back into the mic.

Also, sidenote, I used to stream gaming on Twitch quite a bit with Streamlabs OBS, and I am also able to do multi-camera stream with different scenes similar to what you might see Gab do or music streamers on Twitch. I.e. two or three camera angles as well as screen capture, and of course various screen like BRB, a bigger face cam for talking, Intro scene and ending scene so on. I don't stream on Twitch anymore, but it taught me a bit about these things. I do think about going back to streaming, but I can't really find the right "way" to do it for me, where it doesn't become a stressful burden. Still toying with the idea about music streams on there and maybe also some gaming again.

If you have any other specific questions feel free to ask smile.gif



EDIT: Also just want to point out that I don't think there are really any FAST short cuts to learning to stream. Sure you can buy the equipment, programs, webcam and all these things, but in the end you still gotta learn how to use the programs. I've been asked to help before in settings these things up, and while I don't really mind it, it can also be very personal how one's setup should be and what you wish to use it for. And sometimes experimenting to get nearer your goal is just as valuable and teaches you production. Not talking about you here, by the way. It's similar to when my friend asked me to mix and produce a song, but the recording was nothing but noise, as he had not understood levels, gain staging and generally how to record, but he didn't seem to have watched any tutorials or read about it, but just asked me for the short cuts, i.e. "show me how to do it, then I'll remember", but the truth is that I've spent thousand of hours with settings these things up and I can't "teach" the use of it in 30 minutes - the setup itself can be quickly run through, but how to actually do things and be comfortable with them is a different matter that comes from (lots and lots of) experience, watching, reading and learning from tutorials in my opinion smile.gif There are very few actual short cuts in life.

Sorry, this was not related to you, just a bit of a ramble.

EDIT 2: Added a picture to my reply to Kris.
EDIT 3: Just checked. A quick edit changes the video to the one with likes and comments.

So when you edit the video you get to see likes and comments? I don't see any now.

Great!!

Here I go! biggrin.gif



My video insert looks different yours. It's smaller and has the likes, comments and share section visible. I like it but I don't know why it looks different.

PS: Forget it. Now I understand what Cael said. biggrin.gif
