Question about Facebook Live video for Pages

I volunteer for the local Democratic club. Part of my responsibility for them has been to stream meetings live over Facebook, on our Facebook page. I use my iPhone XS for that. I want to stream it in landscape mode, of course, holding the phone horizontally.

My problem is I have not been able to do that. Facebook will only stream the video in portrait mode. It looks terrible.

I’ve done some googling on this subject, and found you have to start Facebook with the phone in landscape mode before starting the video; but even when I do that, the video insists on going in portrait mode. Have you encountered this problem and found a fix for it?

Separately but related: which do you find the best video platform for live video, Facebook or YouTube? I would prefer to switch to YouTube, but really I need to be where most of the community is.
