Is there a reason why we cannot archive the video after streaming in facebook? Normally after streaming, the video is automatically posted in the page timeline. But when we used wowza to stream, not only the completed stream is not showing on the timeline, but also we can only see it in the Content Library as an expired post where the video shows as being streamed but wouldnt play and is only visible to the page admin.

Hello Elaine Lu,

When setting the Stream Target, you should uncheck this option “Send a continuous live stream”.

Continuous Live :

If the Send a continuous live stream check box is selected, a stream of unlimited length is published to Facebook Live.

When a continuous live stream ends, the video post is unpublished from Facebook. Facebook doesn’t convert continuous live streams to VOD assets.
