So obviously when using Facebook live with any Dji product the audio is recorded through the phone. Is there a way to rig something where we can use an external mic to record through the phone. Anyone else tried this??

Yes, you need some kind of external mic that can connect to your phone.

The DJI Go app needs to be updated so it uses the external mic I've tried adding several different external mic solutions and nothing works!

PLEASE HELP

Is there a setting that can change this maybe???

If all you need is a wild track, I'd just use a sound recording app to record your audio, then switch to the DJI GO app and record your footage.  Then just use a clapper or clap your hands to sync the audio and video.  AudioRec is a good app for recording audio on your phone.

If you want anything higher quality, I'd use an external recorder.

I've been researching this for a few weeks now and don't have a solution, I've bought an age 1 Zoom Mike and a TRS to TRS connector for it. It works when I use a recording program on the phone to record audio, however when I try to go live with Facebook, Facebook is defaulting to the internal mic on the smartphone. This apparently a Facebook issue. Still looking into it.

*EDIT OF PREVIOUS POST I've been researching this for a few weeks now and don't have a solution, I've bought an H1 Zoom Mic and a TRS to TRRS connector for it. Using a stereo 1/8" cable to connect the H1 to an android with the TRS to TRRS adaptor works when I use a recording program on the phone to record audio, however when I try to go live with Facebook, Facebook is defaulting to the internal mic on the smartphone. So my conclusion is this is an issue with how facebook is choosing to source audio for live, and defaulting to the internal mic. Looking for solutions, as right now facebook live audio is not acceptable for live music performances... perhaps by design? I could imagine it would upset interested parties if people could live cast high quality sound of an expensive concert or show.

Needs an extra step to sync sound and video, not a good solution for live videos on Facebook or YouTube... External audio source should be a native feature of the DJI GO app - allowing external mic access - wired or Bluetooth, (especially with the Osmo Mobile 2)... https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=148776
