Upload Live Video From Facebook to YouTube

This brief tutorial walks you through how to take a live video recording from your Facebook page and upload it to your YouTube channel.

You'll want to start by recording a live video on your Facebook page. It's best if you personally recorded or posted the live from your page, to ensure that you have the 'rights' to edit/save the video.

I tried to do this process from my mobile phone and was unsuccessful. So I would strongly suggest using a desktop or laptop computer to complete this process.
