How to preview my stream before the actual broadcast?

If you need to see how your live video would look once it's live, you can stream it privately to Facebook or Youtube. Once you connected your FB page/Youtube channel in the LiveReacting Studio, scroll down to Advanced Settings and set the Privacy to Private.

Once your stream is live, only you can see the video.

Note: If you want to test interactive elements (trivia game, word search, etc), the above method is not going to work as your stream has to be public.

As an alternative, you can also create a new FB page or use some other page for testing. Please note, starting on June 10th, 2024, your account must meet these requirements before you can go live:

  • Your account must be at least 60 days old.
  • Your Page or professional profile must have at least 100 followers.
  • To go live from a Page, you need to have Facebook access or task access to create content.

Once you have a test page, connect it in the Studio and stream your video.

You can run a test with your FREE Trial or active subscription. If you joined LiveReacting before July, 2024, and you use credits - you can stop the test stream before its duration reaches 60 seconds, so the credit is back on your balance automatically.
