I see that Facebook's live streaming service now allows for audio only broadcasts. Has anyone tried streaming their scanner to either their page or personal profile? How well does it work? Might try this myself.

So how was that done? I've googled till my finger bled. What I should ask is did you do that without a camera and a phone?
Using the Whistler Control Demo software to show the screen of the radio (TRX2), I used XSplit to capture the region of the screen I wanted to show and added two jpg files. XSplit can also log into your facebook and go LIVE.

IF i was to do it. I would use this https://obsproject.com/
That is what I use now. Xsplit is more user friendly out of the box, but uses a lot of resources. Now that I had a day off work, I was able to have more time to learn OBS. You have to manually crop the region you want to share. I have been live streaming for over 3 hours now on a test page and it is a lot better, not to mention FREE!
