Facebook live and scheduled events

I use Wowza at Amazon EC2 and I tried to activate stream target to scheduled live streaming on Facebook.

Described solution on this forum doesn’t work.

Now I trying to change PushPublishMap.txt located in [install-dir]/conf/PushPublishMap.txt on Amazon server

I tried to add “sendSSL”:“true” to PushPublishMap.txt file but it doesn’t work.

This is my PushPublishMap.txt file.

Where shall I put “sendSSL”:“true”?

This file has been upgraded for use by the Wowza Streaming Engine REST API. Please avoid hand-editing.

Push Publishing Map file, format:


[src-stream-name]={Profile:[profile], [additional-configuration-items]}

#myStream={profile:“rtmp”, streamName:“myStreamRTMP”, host:“localhost”, application:“live”, userName:“myuser”, password:“mypassword”}
#myStream={profile:“mpegts”, streamName:“myStreamMPEGTS”, host:“”, port:10000, rtpWrap:false}
#myStream={profile:“rtp”, streamName:“myStreamRTP”, host:“”, videoPort:10002, audioPort:10004}
myStream={“entryName”:“Test”, “profile”:“rtmp”, “application”:“rtmp”, “port”:“443”, “destinationName”:“rtmp”, “host”:“”, “streamName”:“690151504736723?s_bl=0&s_sw=0&s_vt=api-s&a=Abw57jXXXXXXXX”}

Hello @Sebastian Gorajekm sorry for the delay, I was out of the country.

Open the [install-dir]/conf/[applicationName]/PushPublishMap.txt file in a text editor, find the entry for the RTMP stream target in the map file, and add “sendSSL”:“true”.

If you need help, please send us a support ticket. You also have this option:

You can also create a Stream Target and add the “sendSSL” option via our REST API as shown in our documentation below.

While sendSSL does allow you to use rtmps as the default URL to select, you should not need to add it to a Facebook stream target to do rtmps since the stream target automatically chooses the rtmps URL that Facebook provides.

I would like to know how can we do Facebook live schedule since we need Authentication token in order to push to fb our stream
