Facebook Live Audio

Post by meisterpropper » 30 Aug 2017 16:44

Hi,

Facebook Live Audio seems to be live for all users now. Is there any possibility to have a facebook live streaming server in ProppFrexx? I´ve searched for a developer api, but haven´t found anything useful - has anybody an idea?

As far as I know there is no API - Facebook wants you to use the mobile app.
E.g. you can connect the line-out of your soundcard to the input of your mobile device (e.g. via a RCA cable to mini jack cable).
Then just use your mobile device and go to the Facebook app and connect... that's it.

Yes, you´re right. Have you ever tried to route your audio at android? Even when I use such a cable I only can send via the internal microphone because facebook app uses the internal microphone automatically.

I don't get your question.
The signal over the cable can also contain a mixed signal of a Mic and Music. That just depends on your PF setup.
There is currently no way to digitally transfer audio to a mobile device.

Maybe the problem is with the different minijack standard for phones: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... smartphone

Thanks. I´ve used the following cable (see attached image). But this doesn´t work. My smartphone uses the internal microphone. I don´t get it, what I´m doing wrong.

Ok, you need to take different steps to find out, where the error is...
First: Can you record the audio with the phones built in voice recorder? (most Android phones has some kind of voice/memo recorder)
Second: Try another phone, or an iPhone (so we can find where the error is)

Thanks. At my oneplus 2 I don´t get even the memo app working. At my oneplus one with lineage OS I get a good sound at my memo app, but at facebook this sound is not present. Seems to be an app issue.

Note, that your mini jack has four rings.
Have you tried a standard mini jack with only 3 rings?

Yes, three rings doesn´t work at all. I´ve ordered a usb c to mini jack input cable. perhaps this could work, but I don´t think so. With an iPhone there´s no problem routing external audio to facebook?
