Syndication to Facebook
You can syndicate content in Backlot to a Facebook timeline, page, group or event by setting up the syndication feed in Backlot, then logging in to the appropriate Facebook account and authorizing Ooyala to publish automatically from Backlot.
To create a syndication feed from Backlot to Facebook, see Setting Up Syndication to Facebook. If you are unsure about your account setup or need other help, contact Ooyala Technical Support.

Choosing Other Facebook Accounts for Syndication
While Backlot does let you associate a syndication feed with a Facebook account different from the one that was used when setting up the feed with another one of your accounts, once you do so you cannot modify the original videos that you uploaded to Facebook using the previous account. When you switch accounts, all videos uploaded on the previous account stay on Facebook but they will be un-managed. These videos (and any new videos) will be uploaded separately from Backlot to the other Facebook account and will have new video IDs.
If you need to associate an existing Backlot syndication to Facebook with one of your other accounts:
- In Backlot open the Publish tab, then the External Publishing subtab.
- In Associate Feed with Facebook select Remove Authorization. This removes the existing account associated with Facebook in Backlot. NOTE: You will see a pop-up message noting that “You will not be able to delete or modify videos in your existing Facebook account if you switch to another.”
- Select the syndication that you want to associate with your new Facebook account.
- Click Authorize to associate that syndication with your other Facebook account.
