Connecting multiple videos to a Facebook Live Mechanic
Facebook Live supports connecting multiple videos to the same Mechanic.
This feature supports:
- Facebook Poll
- Facebook Text Poll
- Facebook Questions
You can connect up to 10 videos, in addition to the main one, in different regions to ease management during live streaming.
Remember to associate with Flowics the Facebook page from where the live video will be broadcasted.
Connecting Live Videos
Click on Settings and enable Connect Multiple Live Videos.
Set the main streaming video by clicking. You will see a list of videos; simply pick one of them.
Adding Extra Live Videos
You can add extra live videos by clicking
Once the list is displayed you can choose the videos you want to add to your Mechanic (up to 10 extra videos can be added). You will see that all videos are LIVE.
If you want to add more videos, you will only see a list of the available options.
Keep in mind that, if you have activated all video signals and then click Open poll, you will not be able to remove the videos. Once the poll is open, you cannot modify the settings of the live videos.
By clicking on Open Poll, it will display the question in all the regions (videos) at the same time. You cannot pick which video you want to send the poll to.
By clicking on Close Poll, the poll will close for all streamings. Your audience will not be able to participate unless you reopen the poll, which will also allow them to change their votes.
Remember that by clicking on Show widget, you can display the Mechanic's results through your graphics system or using our HTML5 Visualization.
