Can we show telemetry overlay in live streams

[ New ]

Can the cameras, or has anyone found a way yet, to show the telemetry data within live streams? 

 

I've been GoPro live streaming over cellular connections with some success but could use the GPS data live.  I don't really have as much use for it after the fact so all the "combine" methods for afterwards won't help.  My need is live.

 

If the camera itself can't do it while live-streaming what about if we have connected the camera to OBS while live streaming is there possibly something in OBS or for OBS (plugin) which could read the data live from the connected GoPro source so we can have it as an overlay on a live stream being sent out of OBS?

I 've seen racerender and something called  TrackAddict that would read live GPS data from a phone.  But we are using a phone with GoPro app and Hero8 to stream already, which seems to take full control over the connection.

I think the closest you can get is installing the Labs firmware: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Labs/ct-p/GoProLabs#

And then creating an overlay with the desired data. It won't be visually attractive and the units might not be ideal, but I don't think there's much more you can do: https://gopro.github.io/labs/control/overlays/

Thanks Kajuna.  From one of your links, "Metadata overlays work great with live-streaming. This was its original intended function."

I'll see what I can do with labs.
