Pair and unpair Facebook
Webcaster X2 uses the Facebook API to get a device pairing code that you simply need to let Facebook know about. Then your Webcaster X2 is authorized to stream to your Facebook account. It couldn't be easier!
Webcaster X2 must be connected to the Internet to retrieve a device pairing code from Facebook and then pair with Facebook. If later on you want to unpair your device, you don't need to be connected to the Internet. If you're live streaming when you unpair, the live stream stops.
