How to Go Live on Facebook

Facebook is a great platform to start livestreaming from since you'll be able to create new friends, as well as, any groups or communities in order to grow your personal brand:

1. Enable Microphone and Camera

When first logging into Melon, your browser will prompt you to allow access to your Microphone and/or Camera, which by accepting you will be able to stream on Melon without any immediate technical difficulties. If you run into any issues, simply reload our site to start over. You can also check your permissions by clicking the lock icon located on the left next to your browser's address bar.

2. Add Yourself to the Stream

The middle screen shown from your Melon Studio is defined as your blank/main canvas. Whatever you select to Show on Stream will be shown on your Livestream, which includes yourself as well as any guests you have invited to your stream.

3. Connect your Facebook Account

Connect your Facebook Page, Group, or Profile by visiting your Destinations page. Here you'll be able to link all your social sites as well as your Facebook to Melon so that you can stream directly from our site at any time.

4. Facebook Permissions

Lastly, we recommend that you check your Facebook Page, Group, or Profile Settings page to check that you have Melon as an app your Facebook page/group/profile can use to stream.

  1. Page/Profile: Please check your Facebook Business Integrations page.
  2. Group: Please check your Group Settings over to your Apps page.

You're all set! Now, whenever you press Go Live and select your Facebook account you'll be able to stream right away! Success!

To recap:

  • Enable your microphone and camera access.
  • Add yourself by pressing Show on Stream.
  • Check that you have added Melon through your Facebook account.
