I am trying to stream an existing file to Facebook Live using ffmpeg. The stream target says active leaving me no reason to believe that there is an issue with the connection. However, I am not able to see the stream on the Facebook page that I am streaming to.
This is the ffmpeg command I am using:
ffmpeg -i video.mov -vf scale=ih*1/1:ih,scale=iw:-2,setsar=1 -f flv “rtmp://localhost:1935/app/video”
The test player shows the stream perfectly how I want it. Can anyone give me an insight on what might be wrong? Is it because my video doesn’t adhere to the Facebook Live requirements?
