The Ooyala Live platform leverages the Elemental Live (http://www.elementaltechnologies.com/products/elemental-live) encoder to push the live stream to a Facebook Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) ingest point. The stream format aligns with Facebook-recommended specifications: 720p (720x1280) at 30 frames per second, an I-frame every 2 seconds, and a bitrate of 2500 kbps.
For Ooyala Live customers who subscribe to the integration service, setting up the integration involves a single extra step in the channel configurations instructions ( http://help.ooyala.com/video-platform/tasks/liveplatform_setup_channel.html ). When defining packaging (choose Ooyala Package) and encoding partners for a channel, you simply click the Facebook Syndication checkbox.
You also select Facebook_Output as the Encoder Output Profile. When you start the channel, you provide login credentials for the Facebook account you want to use, and then select a page (already created by the user in Facebook) on which you want to post the live stream. Facebook responds (behind the scenes) with the URL of the RTMP ingest point. Thereafter, the live stream appears in Facebook (the channel name becomes the title of the live stream).
Ooyala Live can also multicast an RTMP live stream to Facebook and Ooyala Players at the same time. In the Encoding setup, the second output (RTMP) goes to Facebook.
Ooyala will offer integration with Facebook Live as an additional subscription. Contact your Ooyala representative for details.
