Broadcast - MayapurTV and Facebook

By Antardwip das - 17.5 2017

New: Broadcast to MayapurTV and Facebook simultaneously!

One single broadcast to MayapurTV gets split at our server to reach both, your temple/individual website and now also your temple/individual Facebook Page. This was recently developed by our lead programmer, Pushkaraj prabhu.

With a click of a button in the MayapurTV masteradmin, broadcasters can co-broadcast on their Facebook page.

One reason MayapurTV is valued is because it provides everything in one place and accessible to ISKCON members, both as viewers and as preachers. But public reach through Facebook is now simultaneously available, and is painless to use.

For instance, here are the figures from Nrsimha Caturdasi on the MayapurTV Facebook page (the post reached over 1.2m people):

Possibly more important to most broadcasters is that regularly posted material on Facebook builds up online following in addition to website presence.

The benefits of selective broadcasting compared to 24-hour streaming to Facebook are:
1. Because Facebook friends only get notified when a broadcast starts, if you are live the whole time, no-one gets notified, if you only broadcast specific events like class, friends get notified every time and there is more activity/traffic to your Facebook page.
2. Recordings on Facebook are only retained if the broadcast is less that 1 1/2 hours – so going live on Facebook 24-hour means no recordings.

“Mobile broadcasts (like New York Harinam etc) to MayapurTV using Wowza Gocoder free from the app store, also automatically get forwarded to Facebook.”

All enquiries on broadcasting on MayapurTV or forwarding to Facebook to (or on the broadcasters forum if you are a member)

Hare Krishna.

ps Please Note: Facebook Terms and conditions state that one cannot push the same broadcast to Facebook and YouTube at the same time – it is one or the other.
And also please note that this implementation on MayapurTV is very new technology – and is still a little buggy. So please come on board if you want to do some Hare Krishna digital pioneering.
