Are you doing live broadcasts on Facebook, but would also love to embed a video on your website to attract more viewers and create engagement? Then you’re in the right place! Here is an article on how to do that.

To be embedded, your broadcast has to meet the following requirements:

  1. The broadcast should be live on your timeline or page OR scheduled on the page

  2. The broadcast should be public (If you embed a video and the audience of the video changes from Public, a message saying the embedded video is no longer available will appear on the website.)

How to embed a broadcast on any website

The easiest way to embed a live video on any website is to copy and paste the embed code available for the post with the broadcast. You just need to have access to HTML editing of the block or page - no coding required!  

Here's how:

Create or schedule a broadcast using Be.Live. Note: your broadcast needs to be live on the timeline or live/scheduled on a page to be embedded on the website.

If your broadcast is already live on the timeline or page

1. Go to Facebook and locate the post with the broadcast. Click Share > Embed

2. Copy and paste the code to your website.

If you wish to include the full post (with description and reactions), check the 'Include full post' box. 

You can also go to Advanced Settings to set up the size of the embedded video and other features.
