As discussed in our "Setting up secondary streams" article, you can link your Onlive streaming to secondary destinations; Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Vimeo, Twitter Periscope, Twitch and Crowdcast.

Here we will outline how you retrieve the Stream key and URL from Facebook Live, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter Periscope and Twitch.

1. Facebook Live

On the Facebook page you wish to stream to, select "Live Video" or "Create Live" just under your status bar/create post bar. Select where you want the live video to be streamed then "Use Stream Key". This will bring up the URL and Stream Key which you can then copy and paste into your Onlive account (as shown in the article "Setting up Secondary Streams"). You can also visit Facebook Live Producer to select where and when to stream.
