2. Click Create Live Stream.

 

3. On the right side (not shown below), choose where you want your stream to go (e.g. Your Timeline, a Group), your audience, and any title or caption you'd like to go with it.

4. In the middle of your screen (shown below), you will see your Server URL and Stream Key.

Make sure the "Use a persistent stream key" is checked. This is required.

5. Copy and paste the Server URL and Persistent Stream Key fields into ScoreCam's Live Stream Settings, Stream Link and Stream Key.

NOTE: One way to do this is to send yourself an email with these settings and then open the email on your mobile device and copy/paste from there.
