Connecting Facebook on YoloCast

To connect to the Facebook account, click the Facebook icon on the list to start. You would first see this reminder message on the screen.

Click the “I know” button and you would jump to a new page. Click “Continue as…” to enter the next step.

On the Authority page, when asked Who can see content YoloLiv posts to your Timeline? Be sure to select Public. This gives YoloLiv permission to post the live stream on your Facebook Timeline or the timeline of any pages you manage.

After you change the public option, click continue to enter the final page. You can check the authorized options by clicking on “Choose what you allow“. When you are ready, click “Continue”, and then the process would finish in seconds.

You would see a similar reminder when clicking the YouTube icon. In the same step as you connect the Facebook account, click “I know” to enter the next step.

Choose a Google account you like to connect to. Follow Google’s prompts in choosing your account, granting YoloLiv permission to use the account. Make sure all checkboxes are ticked, and then click “Continue”.

Connecting Twitch on YoloCast

Twitch is easy to connect. You only need one step to finish the connection. Click the Twitch icon and you would see this page. Drag down to the bottom and click “Authorize” and you are done using it.

If you want to add your own RTMP destination, click the RTMP button to enter this page. Provide the RTMP destination a name and inset the Server URL (or RTMP URL) and Stream Key (provided by whichever platform you like to stream to, e.g. YouTube), and then click Add Destination when done.
