  • RTMP Deprecation — As we announced earlier, we have begun deprecation of RTMP support. Starting today, Live Video streams on Users, Events, and Groups must be encrypted using the RTMPS data transfer protocol. Live Video streams on Pages and Workplace can continue using the non-encrypted standard RTMP protocol until November 1st, 2019, after which they must use RTMPS. If you are continuing to use RTMP and using a persistent stream key, you should reset your persistent key and update any devices that use them or your streams will fail.
