Display Facebook Comments via Livestream Studio

Studio lets you include comments from your Facebook broadcast or your other videos on Facebook and show them in a graphics overlay.

In a GFX module, select Create Custom Graphic in the bottom left corner.

Hover your mouse over Social, then select Facebook Comment.

Once you add the Facebook Comment layer, be sure to open the GFX Designer to design your graphic and add the desired fields from Facebook (profile picture, name, comment, number of likes on that comment).

There are two ways this feature can be used.

 

See Comments on Current Live Broadcast

By default, this option is set to get comments from Facebook stream provider. This means when you set up Studio to broadcast to Facebook, the comments that populate will be from the stream that appears on Facebook once you go live from Studio.

You can also filter the comments that come in by a keyword or hashtag. This will pre-populate a default comment you can display in your graphic that will prompt your viewers to use the desired phrase. If you want to see all the comments that come in, uncheck Filter comments.

Next, you can configure how often Studio polls for new comments and how many of the most recent comments will it show. By default, it will poll new comments every 60 seconds and display the most recent 100.

 

Below this setting are the auto-loop settings, where you can set Studio to loop through each comment at a defined interval.

Once you go live and some viewers have commented, Studio will poll Facebook for comments as configured, and you can display them one at a time in a graphics overlay.

See Comments from Another Facebook Video

If you wish to display comments from another Facebook video, you must have login credentials to the account that owns the video, whether it's from your profile or a Page of which you are an admin.

Once you are logged in, paste the URL of your Facebook video into the field.
