Facebook generates both a Server URL and a Stream Key, which you will need in your live stream settings panel. (You may need to expand Advanced Settings to show the Server URL.)
Check Persistent Stream Key if you want your stream key to be permanent (i.e., if you don’t want to have to configure OBS with every new stream).
Important! Your stream key is like a password. Keep it save and never share it publicly or make it visible.
Keep this page open as this is where you will start your stream later.
