Re: Go Pro 7 Black Live Stream Youtube 1 hours

My new Hero 7 Black arrived today and I ran into this message board by accident while searching for tips from the community.
I bought the camera for the sole purpose of low budget live streaming from a lecture hall. Reading all these complaints made me cold sweat because all lectures last longer that 1 hour.

 

Gladly in my first test I managed to do a 1 and a half hour of streaming on Twitch without any errors or disconnects. I ended the streaming myself by pressing the stop button. So maybe they fixed the problem or I just got extremely lucky.


For my test I used my Hero 7 Black that I updated to the latest firmware (v1.90 | November 25, 2019 at the time of writing), an iPhone 11 with the latest version of GoPro app for IOS (v6.7 3515 at the time of writing) and a quite slow WiFi connection with 1Mbps upload rate. The camera was connected directly to the power outlet without the battery. For RTMP url I used this Twitch Ingest rtmp://live-fra05.twitch.tv/app/{stream_key} that I found here: https://stream.twitch.tv/ingests/. The video resolution was 720p. I had a 128gb micro sd card in the camera but it was not used because I did not selected the "save a copy" to the sd card option.


I don't have a Facebook account neither I have 1K+ subsribers on Youtube to test, but I do confirm that streaming uninterrupted for more that 1 hour is possible using RTMP in my case.

Hello @keitha58137

 

This has been shared with the team and we are waiting for new updates.

In the meantime, you may stream via RTMP.

See How to live stream from your GoPro  for reference.

 

Thanks!
