How do I stream to a Facebook group?

Updated over a week ago

Requirements

  • You need to be the admin or owner of the group you want to stream to.

  • The Restream app will need to be added to your Facebook group.

  • You’ll need a paid plan to unlock streaming to Facebook groups.

How to go live on a Facebook Group

Connect Facebook to Restream following this instruction.

Followed the instructions but still don't see your Facebook group on the list?

There are a few reasons your Facebook group may not show up on Restream:

  1. The Restream app is not added to your Facebook group.

  2. Your personal account isn’t an admin of the Facebook group.

  3. You haven’t granted permission for a specific group.

The Restream app is not added to your Facebook group

  1. Open Facebook groups and choose the group you would like to connect to Restream.

  2. Open the Group settings, scroll down to Manage advanced settings and choose Apps.

  3. You will see a pop-up where you will be able to click on "Add apps" if Restream is not already listed there.

  4. Search for "Restream" and press the Restream icon to add it.

    Add Restream to Facebook groups

Your personal account isn’t an admin of the Facebook group

  1. Log into your Facebook Group and press Activity log on the left side menu.

  2. Choose Admin and moderators and add your personal account as an admin of the group.

You haven’t granted permission for a specific group

Removing and re-adding the Facebook channel should fix that. Please ensure you grant access and check the boxes next to all groups and pages that you'd like to stream to.
