To stream into a Facebook group from Zoom following the removal of direct integration, you'll need to utilize Zoom's custom live streaming functionality with RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol).

Here are the steps:

  1. In Zoom, go to Settings > In Meeting (Advanced) and enable "Allow live streaming meetings".

  2. Start a new meeting in Zoom and click "More" > "Live on Custom Live Streaming Service".

  3. Copy the Stream Key and Stream URL provided by Facebook into Zoom, see point 5 for Stream key and URL.

  4. Go to the Facebook group you want to stream into and create a new post. Click "Live Video" at the bottom.

  5. In the Live Producer window, select "Use streaming software" and paste the Stream Key and Stream URL from Zoom.

    The Stream key, Server URL=Streaming URL, and the URL of the page must be added to Step 3.

  6. Give your stream a title, set the schedule if needed, and click "Go Live".

  7. In Zoom, click "Go Live" on the custom streaming popup to start streaming into the Facebook group.

The key points are:

  • Enable custom live streaming in Zoom

  • Get the RTMP stream key and URL from Zoom

  • Create a new Live Video post in the Facebook group

  • Paste Zoom's stream details into Facebook's Live Producer

  • Start streaming in Zoom to push the feed to the Facebook group

This workaround allows you to continue streaming Zoom meetings into Facebook groups, albeit with a few extra steps compared to the previous direct integration.
