Change audio bitrate settings?

I'm trying to live stream to Periscope with the Hero 7 black, but noticed I'm unable to preview or actually broadcast because the audio bitrate from the gopro is too high. Periscope mentions it only accepts no more than 160kbps, and the gopro is sending 190kbps. 

 

Is there a way to adjust this? Looks like there is no obvious way.

Hi @rockysurf21445

 

 

Currently the camera does not have an option to change audio bit rate.

Have you tried changing the resolution?

 

The HERO4/HERO5 cameras (not including Session) are the ones officially supported on Periscope.

You may also reach out to Periscope regarding this.

 

Thanks!

Re: Change audio bitrate settings?

I've had the same problem. Would be nice if we had some option to change the audio as asking Periscope/Twitter to up the bitrate is like pulling teeth (users have been asking for awhile now).

Tried the external mic but that didn't work with Twitter/Periscope's setup.
