Live videos on “Facebook Live” from @adafruit @facebook #‎whereswirecast #F8

Here are some notes on our live video journey 🙂

Here’s ASK an ENGINEER from last night, it appears to be the longest running live electronics show on planet each week for the last (almost) 7 years! We are now doing this on Facebook live too. Facebook announced APIs to stream in and Wirecast the tool(s) we use instantly updated their software (we are using 6.0.7) for Facebook live.

During the broadcast there were a few hundred live viewers on Facebook LIVE and within 15 hours of the show (10am 4/14/16) Facebook says “10,877 people reached”. Mostly getting this post up here to look back later on stats and more.

We’re also broadcasting on Twitch, Youtube live, Ustream, Periscope (phone) and Hugvr in 360 VR with a Ricoh THETA S. And all of this is on Apple TV too for watching and as podcasts.

Periscope doesn’t have a way to broadcast other than off a phone, so unless that changes soon, likely a dead-end for broadcasters, Twitter might not see a live video future, we’ll see … they also have Vine. And for short videos, we use Instagram.

Interested in what we’ll do in SnapChat soon, need to figure out some metrics for success on that and value for fans, friends, customers and more.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
