Man I know my guitar player has either hit his head or has early signs of dementia because he wants to do a live gig on
Facebook!.

I told him he would have to do it in a real controlled studio with engineers and that still would be a stupid idea. So my friends....how crazy is his idea!

I'm not sure what I think of it yet. I've seen some live shots of concerts that were surprisingly good, but I highly doubt they were shooting it with smart phones. If it was done with the right equipment I might be willing to give it a shot.

live or Memorex...

if you want to do this I would suggest the Memorex way. Pro video a live performance and then post it.

there are other consideration as the streaming service. Does FaceBook offer this or do they merely connect to a live stream? What are the bandwidth constraints? What about the encoding? and live can be a degraded bandwidth hog that can be laggy or stutters

I would get a pro level multi camera view of the performance, use a board feed so the sound is good and encode at a rate that smartphones can enjoy. This can also be posted to YouTube and the band website. So many birds with one stone. We all have had off performances so a live one can amp up the clams...

YMMV

FB does offer this, but I don't know any of the technical aspects of it. I watched the live feed of a Grace Potter concert a few days ago and it was quite good. For a live stream it was some of the best I've seen to date. It's not the quality of a professionally produced video, but that's not what we're talking about here. I think the time is coming fast where live streaming is going to be a big thing.

I've watched several shows streamed live through FB. Pretty good quality. Im not sure what there is to be afraid of.

Not sure what there is to be afraid of either. Looks like a good way to allow family and friends see you perform where they may not be able to otherwise.

Robert Randolph did this a few weeks ago at the local guitar shop (Action Music in Falls Church, VA).

If I had been closer to the shop I would have gone to try to catch it. He was just jamming through a few of the lap steels for sale and a marshall stack before his gig that night.

Cool stuff to get immediate interest.
