SO, I have a new media mod, and quick capture still does not work with the media mod (that is, when quick capture is activated, there is no live feed).
Also, did anyone at GoPro even use this device before releasing? The USB and HDMI sockets are way too close together. Unless you use Hyperthin branded microHDMI cables, a HDMI and USB-C cable barely fit next to each other. If I use one of my cheaper HDMI cables, the USB and HDMI plugs interfere and do not sit correctly in their sockets....even the ribbon cable clip-on style HDMI cables do not fit....ugghhh...

this might work, but it's not practical. It means you always need physical access to the camera, which is rarely the case for people who are using the live feed fucntion. They need to either include the startup mode as an option (ie gallery or live feed), or allow you to go to the live view from the app

I've been in a similar situation before with other gear and bulky molded cables. It's not the prettiest but it takes a few moments to file the side of the molded cable end.
I've been out in the field and have used concrete to do this lol.
Not an ideal solution and not my preference to mcguyver things - but most cables can spare a mm on either side to slim them.

I too am having the same issue. I use a Go Pro 7 Hero Black for Web streams through OBS and it works perfectly when I connect a HDMI cable to it with a clean signal. I recently purchased a GoPro 8 and waitied 4 weeks for the Media Mod which just arrived yesterday. I was shocked that when you plug the HDMI in that you dont get a clean HDMI out. I cant find any way to select this option to Live View as the screen is blank and even when I tried to scroll on it to prefferences it wont let me select anything as viewing the actions through my computer view on OBS. Basically really disapointed with this model. I would rather sell this and get another Hero 7 Black model.

The image in the last post is correct if you have a media mod attached and running the latest firmeware 1.60. The only thing that will change there is the microphone selection if you have a microphone directly attached.
You can easily get a "clean feed" on your stream if the option is selected. You have three options when your GoPro is attached to a hdmi (using the side mode button). Playback option. A "live" feed with the camera status displayed (battery, sd etc) and a "monitor" option which will be your clean live feed.

With the media mod and hero 8 you can not pre select what you want prior to connecting via hdmi.
The menu/settings were poorly designed and not tested. They took a step back from the hero 7 which took a step back from the 5.
Remember that when you connect the 8 via hdmi it also does not auto rotate and if you lock rotation, that doesn’t translate to the hdmi out.
I’d recommend using the camera before claiming you have an “easy” solution to a problem when you don’t.
