Re: Control from PC?

I, too, am blown away by this obvious hole in product support, with a gloss-over "Problem Solved."

Still no solution.

Re: Control from PC?

WOW ladies please. I've only just seen this thread, & know of a program called WiGo that will let you control a Hero 4 or older GoPro from a computer. The software is free, but have to add to cart & proceed as a purchase, they then send you the required download https://cam-do.com/products/wigo-gopro-wifi-controller-for-windows

If you know how to deal with Python you can use whatever OS and hardware supoorting this programming language to control your camera.

Here's an example estefannie-gopro-selfie how to make use of the GoPro API https://github.com/KonradIT/gopro-py-api/blob/master/README.md

 

EDIT: posted this for a number of times now ... O.K. if you're looking for something 'spoon-feed' you may have to wait a 'lil longer

Duane, maybe you should read closer, it says "HERO4 and HERO5 is not supported" at the bottom.

Noted! But it also questionable which features people are looking for when saying 'control from PC' .

 

Also 'non-programmers' should be able to copy a string into their browsers address field - i.e. from here https://github.com/KonradIT/goprowifihack/blob/master/HERO5/HERO5-Commands.md

 

Use those you need to finish your task and you don't need to write a single line of code

The problem is that GoPro made it harder to connect to Hero 5 and Hero 6 remotely.

Now, they require a bluetooth handshake before turning on WiFi making it impossibly hard to make a remote controlling application.

 

(if only GoPro added an option to keep "wifi always on" somewhere in the settings).
