Stream to a Facebook Group

In order to go live from a Mevo camera to a Facebook Group, you must be an Admin and need to install the "Mevo Camera" Facebook App to your Group. Once you have configured these settings, you can go live to your Facebook Group from your camera.
 
First, make sure you are an Admin of your Group. Only Admins can adjust Group settings and go live to Groups. Also, be sure you have updated Mevo 2.0 to version 1.9 or later.
 
On your Group's Discussion page, select settings.
 
Scroll down to the Apps section and select Add Apps.
 
Find the "Mevo Camera" app in the list and select it. Once you've added the app to your Group, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the settings screen and click Save.

You can now connect your mobile device to the Mevo mobile app on iOS or Android. Select Facebook as your streaming destination and your Group(s) will populate to the right.

Please note that streams to Groups will always be public to members of your Group, regardless of the audience setting selected in the app.

  • How did you get the mevo to stream from your group?  I haven't been able to figure it out.  It streams from my page just fine, but not the group.  thanks    normanadventist@gmail.com

  • I'm having the same issue with live streaming from a group.  I can live stream on my profile page without issue but unable to stream via the private group page.  @mark pelfrey - how did you solve for this issue?

  • I have the exact same issue as Anthony above. I can select my page from the app but once I try to go live I get the same error.

  • @mindee mcdonald - I figured it out.  You need to go to the facebook group page, go to settings, scroll down to where it says "managed discussion", then open post format, slide the bar to the right so it shows blue which enables the live stream.  Good luck.
