When scheduling a live broadcast on Facebook or YouTube, a preview image can be provided. On Facebook, this will be used for the announcement post. On YouTube, this will be displayed as a video thumbnail.

Image Size and Shape

When creating an image, use a 16x9 shape.  For example:

  • 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels high
  • 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high

Other shapes will be cropped by Facebook.
