For this to work I assume you already has connected your Smart Controller to Wi-Fi.

History:
I bought the DJI Mavic 2 Pro bundled with the DJI Smart Controller a month ago and I was curious to tryout the Facebook Live Stream function within the DJI GO4 app.

Unfortunately the embedded browser didn't let me log in to my Facebook account. That's because Facebook since October 5th, 2021 has deprecating support for login authentication on Android embedded browsers. Source

Solution:
The workaround is to download and install the Amazon Appstore on your Smart Controller and from there download the Facebook app.

Note: I used this guide: (How to install Litchi on DJI monitors) from Litchi when I installed the Amazon Appstore (and of course Litchi) on my Smart Controller.

Open the newly installed Facebook app and login to your account.

You should now be logged in to Facebook and be able to start a Facebook Live Stream from within the DJI GO4 app.

Hope this helps if you struggle to get the Facebook Live Stream to work!
