Set stream privacy

Before streaming to your Facebook Timeline with Webcaster X2, you can choose to set the initial privacy setting of your post. It's easy!

You can only set the privacy for your post to your Timeline. Live broadcasts that are posted to a Facebook Group, Event or Page use the default privacy settings for that destination.

To configure the privacy of your live stream to your Timeline you need:

    • Your Webcaster X2
    • An HDMI display (that supports 1080p video) connected to your Webcaster X2
    • A USB mouse connected to your Webcaster X2

  1. If not already on the Preferences page, click the Preferences icon at the lower right corner of the screen. The preferences screen opens.
  2. Click Privacy (Timeline only) in the Facebook Details section.
  3. Note: Note the Privacy setting is only applicable for streaming to a Timeline. Facebook Events, Groups and Pages dictate the default privacy of live streams posted within them.
  4. Use your connected USB mouse to select an initial privacy setting for your live stream.
  5. Note: When you first get your Webcaster X2, the default privacy setting is Only Me to avoid accidentally streaming something you didn't mean to stream. If you change the settings, Webcaster X2 remembers those changes the next time you use the encoder.
  6. Right click to exit the Preferences.
