It is now possible to have Katch.me automatically post replays of your Periscope broadcasts to your personal Facebook Page or to a Company Page. It’s also still possible to put individual broadcasts up on Facebook manually.
How to have Katch post to your Facebook automatically
- Of course, you need to have a Katch.me account first. Read more on Katch.me here.
- Login to Katch.me
- Click on Settings in the top menu bar
- Scroll down until you see this:Note: the top one is to have Katch.me send the replays of your broadcasts to your personal Facebook Page, the bottom one is to have send Katch.me the replays of your broadcasts to one of your Facebook Company Pages. You have to set them up separately, but the process is pretty much the same.
- First click on the Connect button on the right, then follow the instructions and allow Katch to see your public profile. Choose who you’d like to share your replays with (everyone, friends etc). With the Facebook Company Pages, you will have to chose to which one you’d like Katch to send your replays. You can only choose one.
Please be aware that if you link Katch.me to your Facebook profile and or Facebook Company Page, Katch will indeed send all of your replays there. You will not be able to chose which ones to send there. If you are not comfortable with that, you can chose to NOT link Katch and Facebook and just put the replays up on Facebook that you want to be there. You will have to do this manually:
- Login to Katch.me
- Click on My Videos in the top menu bar
- Find the video you would like to share on Facebook and click on it
- On the bottom left you will see these four icons. Click on the second one from the left.
- You will see a pop-up, something similar to this:
6. Click on the blue button (bottom right) to publish the replay of your scope to Facebook.
Note: The above picture shows it in Dutch, since at the moment my Facebook is set to Dutch. The words on your Facebook might be slightly different.

Here is the Periscope broadcast I did about this new Katch feature. It’s very long (about 1,5 hours), but that is only because I repeated the information many times for all the new people that came into the scope. If you watch only the first bits, you’ll have the information you need :-)
