How to book Facebook Live captions

We’ve designed the booking process to be as simple as possible. Login with Facebook on this page.

During the login process, you will be prompted for permissions to link your Facebook account.

Book a live captioning session

After you have logged in, you can book a live captioning session to correspond to the time you wish to go live on Facebook. At the bottom of the form, you will be prompted to choose your destination. You will be presented with two options.

1. Add from linked account

Select this option to link your booking directly to a page associated with your Facebook account.

You will be prompted for permissions which are necessary to allow Ai-Media to publish the captioned stream to your pages. If you don’t accept these permissions, you will need to set up your destination manually using the manual configuration option. 

You can stream to any Facebook page where you have permission to post.

If you have already scheduled your live video on Facebook, you can link this with your booking, or choose to publish directly to your page at the time of your booking.

Why choose to schedule your live video on Facebook?

Scheduling a live video makes it easier to build anticipation and buzz with your followers before your broadcast begins. When you schedule a live video on Facebook, you can elect to publish an announcement to the News Feed letting your fans know that your broadcast is coming. Your followers can opt in to receive a one-time reminder notification that will alert them shortly before your broadcast begins. Your fans can then join a pre-broadcast lobby directly before the live video starts. In this way, your broadcast can start strong with an audience already assembled. Currently, it’s possible to schedule a live broadcast up to one week in advance.

Why publish directly to your page instead?

This option is useful if you don’t wish to notify your followers of your upcoming live session. However, you will still need to know when you plan to go live so you can book your live captioning session in advance. 

2. Manual configuration

Provide us with the streaming information for your Facebook destination manually. This option is necessary if you have not provided the requested streaming permissions or if you are streaming on someone’s behalf and they have provided you the streaming information for their live video.
