Control from PC?

Can GoPro cameras be controlled from a PC? I'm looking for the same functionality as from the Android app, including live preview. What good is controlling a camera if you can't see the results? I only found your Studio which didn't appear to have any control function. It also doesn't seem to work very well with Windows 10 which happened to be the PC at hand. I'd be happy with Windows 7 for now, but the world is marching tolward Windows 10 whether we like it or not.

Re: Control from PC?

Hi @Anonymous Great question.  Unfortunately, we do not have a software program where you can control the camera remotely from a PC. However, we do have an App that you can use with your compatible Smart Device to control, view, and upload video and photos.  You can click on this link to learn more about the GoPro App.

 

If you have a HERO4 Black Edition, you can attach our LCD Touch BacPac for a live preview.  The HERO4 Silver has an intergrated LCD Touch Screen and is a great feature for those who want a live preview without connecting a BacPac or to the App. The HERO+LCD would also be another option.

 

Regarding Studio not working well with your Windows 10 computer, could you let us know what is not working well?  This way we can look into what you are experiencing and see what we can do to help out.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Re: Control from PC?

Yeah so true, I recently got windows 10 on my mac, and I was very disappointing so I went back to windows 7. But, I use Mac OS X El Captain now, love that new update so much faster and a lot of new features windows 10 had copied a lot of Mac OS X features I noticed so that was very disappointing to see Microsoft do that. And to answer your question about having control of the GoPro with your PC is not available yet. But there is rumor that they will be doing that. Right now only live stream has an application that can control your camera via of your PC. Here is live streams application: http://livestream.com/studio "GoPro and Live stream are not company partners"

Re: Control from PC?

Hi @Anonymous Great question.  Unfortunately, we do not have a software program where you can control the camera remotely from a PC. However, we do have an App that you can use with your compatible Smart Device to control, view, and upload video and photos.  You can click on this link to learn more about the GoPro App.

 

If you have a HERO4 Black Edition, you can attach our LCD Touch BacPac for a live preview.  The HERO4 Silver has an intergrated LCD Touch Screen and is a great feature for those who want a live preview without connecting a BacPac or to the App. The HERO+LCD would also be another option.

 

Regarding Studio not working well with your Windows 10 computer, could you let us know what is not working well?  This way we can look into what you are experiencing and see what we can do to help out.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Re: Control from PC?

Hi

When will you have an app where by we can control the GoPro from a windows system?, I understand the absolute need to have the android and ios apps but not having one for windows is completely unacceptable for a company of your stature and size.

 

Regards

John

 

(P.S your thread says the original question was solved, it wasn't, solving the problem would involve having a solution to remotely control the GoPro from a windows system)

SOLUTION NOT ACCEPTED!
Saying "Problem Solved" doesn't make it so.
Saying "Problem Solved" and then describing the wonders of a non-solution makes GoPro look lazy, stupid or both.
Saying "Problem Solved" because a problem report has reached a certain age seems to be the model for many companies including GoPro.
If you never intended to offer a real solution, be honest and say so. Don't waste our time and insult our intelligence.

@Anonymous - Is there a specific question that you felt went unanswered in the response by @pacifictiran671 that we can help with?

 

FYI that Accepted Solutions are not an indicator that a requested feature was implemented. They are simply an indicator that the original question was answered. If that's not the case, we'll be glad to see if we can help get you the answer.

Re: Control from PC?

You need another tag for issues raised & closed without an actual solution. "Closed Without Solution" would be appropriate in this case.

I ask about control from a PC. Apparently I'm not alone. There are many reasons starting with actually being able to see what you're capturing on a full-size HD screen. Also the ability to control, transfer, & edit captured video in one place.

The response was to tell me what everyone learns the first time they set up & use a GoPro. Then a paragraph on Studio, which he points out Does Not have any control functions.

Some appropriate responses might include:

We're planning that for a future release. A ballpark timeframe would be nice. Or at least "Stay tuned for future developments."

Or: We've had many requests and will try to work it into our development schedule.

Or: We don't plan to offer it.

An answer in one of these categories would help us understand the direction GoPro is heading & allow us to make a better decision on the direction we should choose.

We don't have any more information on this feature at this time. If it's something you would like to suggest to our developers, the best route to do that is to submit the suggestion via our Feedback process here... https://gopro.com/feedback
