This article will help you start pulling Facebook Lives into Searchie from Facebook groups that your Facebook account is an admin of.
What you will need:
- A Searchie account
- A Facebook account
- To have logged into Searchie
- To have logged into Facebook
- To have added the Searchie app to your Facebook group
Note: You must (1) link your Facebook account in Searchie, (2) add Searchie as an app in your Facebook group, and (3) be an admin of the group/page you wish to pull live videos from.
From the Searchie dashboard, locate the add media button in the centre or bottom-right corner of your screen and click it (location of the button depends if you have video content uploaded already).
From this next screen, click 'Upload from Facebook'.
Next, click 'Connect Facebook' and make sure you are logged into Facebook at this step as well.
From here a new window will open and you will be prompted by Facebook to link your Facebook account to Searchie click 'OK'. You can also tweak any settings by clicking 'Choose What You Allow'.
From here, head back into the Searchie app and you will find your Facebook account linked! Click your account name and you will be able to see the groups you are an admin of. These are the groups that can be connected to Searchie for Facebook Live pulling.
The groups you've linked will display here for importing. To connect a group, select the group you want to import Facebook Lives from and click 'Import'.
If you haven't already, add the Searchie app to your group settings in order for it to sync the group. There is a help article that can you help you with this here: Add the Searchie App to a Group
Once you've imported your group you will be able to find it in the folders tab. You will also have all your videos from the group available but in an unprocessed and untranscribed state. You can select which videos to have processed and transcribed from here.
