VidCasterLive : A FB Inboxer add-on is Facebook Live Video streaming tool which allows you to go live in Facebook with Pre-recorded video and share across all your pages. You can go live immediately or schedule live video for future. Also this application has option to create Live Event for more Engagement before actual live broadcasting.
Why should use Live Event before going actual Live?Scheduling a Live Event makes it easier to build anticipation and buzz with your audience before your broadcast begins, so you can start strong with an audience already assembled.
When you schedule a live event, an announcement post will be published to News Feed letting your fans on Facebook know that the broadcast is coming. People who see the post can opt in to receive a one-time reminder notification that will alert them shortly before your broadcast begins. Your fans can then join a pre-broadcast lobby directly before the live video starts, where they can connect and interact with other viewers.
