Default Camera WiFi Password

I'm trying to connect my PC to a Black 7 camera.  To do this I need to access the WiFi network of the camera.  I couldn't remember my credential so It did a name/password reset.  Icould rename my camera but I never entered a new password.  HOw do I find the new password?  Would that be found on the camera itself or would it be somewhere in the App?

Re: Default Camera WiFi Password

@alertapex735, this is a third-party information and I'm not able to attest if the process will or will not work.

 

With GoPro HERO7 Black, you can live stream to Facebook and other platforms through the GoPro App only. You can visit this article Getting Started With Live Streaming for more details about this feature.

Re: Default Camera WiFi Password

@alertapex735, the HERO7 Black camera's Wi-Fi password can be found under Preferences > Connections > Camera Info. However, connecting the camera to a computer via wireless connection isn't a feature. The camera's Wi-Fi can only be used for GoPro App (on mobile) and Smart Remote connections.

Are you trying to transfer your media files to your computer? Check out these articles for reference:

Re: Default Camera WiFi Password

@aenriquez,I found the password and can now connect to the GoPro network. Thanks.

 

I'm trying to connect to the server as described in the link below.  If I'm reading this correctly, I should connect to the server, find a file named amba.m3u8 then open that file to retrive an RTMP link that I can paste into VLC.  When I connect to the GoPro server and enter the URL of HTTP:/?10.5.5.9:8080 in a browser window, I get and error saying that this page cannot be accessed.  The picture of the GoPro in the link is a Hero 4 so maybe they've added security on the newer models that prevent this type of accces?
