I’m currently trying to understand the exact situation via-a-vis Facebook Live and Youtube. It seems we may be able to stream simultaneously to both, i.e. those of us who don’t much like Facebook, and maybe don’t have a Facebook account, could take part in Pop-Ups without having to bend the knee to Zuck. But I’m not certain about this yet, it depends on a technical issue yet to be resolved.

If this were possible, how likely would you be to want it?


With all the news recently about Facebook, I admit I have had second thoughts about using the App, although I very rarely post and use it more for viewing only. I have never used YouTube for live streaming purposes, so I can't comment on it's capabilities. However, streaming on both, if possible, would be a chance to see which service offers the best quality and could act as a back-up, should one. or the other, be unavailable on the day.

Technically, we should be able to stream on both simultaneously. I haven’t tried yet, and it will be bandwidth-intensive, but it ought to work. Facebook don’t like this, however. Will do a test run in the next day or so and we’ll see what happens.
