see Facebook stream targets no longer working (nov 2020)
We’re a bunch of people having this issue.
I know three other people who do.

exactly it stop on nov 2020, but i dont find much info or alternative to avoid this issue.
Basically if Wowza not support push to facebook it is obsolete software.

see my own post; it points at a deprecated API call which invalidates the auth. Should be an easy fix

OK but do you find any alternative to push to facebook? any plugin or solution.
i need find any alternative for our church

a fix is in the way, just talked to a high level wowza person. Should be very soon.

Hi everyone, this issue was a result of FB deprecating a parameter that broke our stream target workflow and no not such an easy fix when so many variables and CDNs are involved, so thank you for your patience while the Engine team worked on this beta release.

The alert and workaround was posted on the wowza status alert page. If you have not subscribed to that, please do so you get an email when there is an issue that can affect you.
