GoPro Hero 6 and cellular live stream to Youtube/Facebook?

Can or will GoPro implement live streaming from their GoPro app to Youtube (or Facebook) like YI 4K+ via a cellular signal?

This is one feature the YI 4K+ and their app has which is superior to GoPro and I'm hoping GoPro will catch and offer this option.

Currently I have to use a rather unwieldy setup of outputing from GoPro mini HDMI into an HDMI to USB 3.0 converter (which disables the rear LCD on the HERO6 ???) and then take that signal via a USB 3 cable into my Samsung Galaxy S8 (this is not supported on Apple/iOS).

It would be far easier and better if I can connect wirelessly (as is currently possible) to the GoPro app and then have the GoPro app use the cellular signal to transmit a live stream to Youtube (primarily) and Facebook.

 

Thanks

Re: GoPro Hero 6 and cellular live stream to Youtube/Facebook?

GoPro & Periscope, one day FB, while Young Innovators (Yi Technology) can  be used on a  wi-fi  connection of fa Home  router  and Hotspotting.  where they really need to  not restrict it to that but allow Data to be used.

 

OBS allows to go on to FB and some other Apps to stream your gopro, but I guess when they feel they want to advance (gopro) we'll see more apps or one day   that feature?

Re: GoPro Hero 6 and cellular live stream to Youtube/Facebook?

I am also trying to stream my hero 6 to facebook live.  Are you using some sort of capture device, or just connecting the hdmi out of the gopro to the usb c on your phone.  Are you using a special app to brodcast and is the quality very good?  I would love to have this happen wirelessly but at this point I am open to any suggestions.

 

thanks,

I use a USB 3 to HDMI capture device into the USB-C adapter on my Android phone and I use Cmaers Live app which seems to work reasonably well.

Thank you for your response. Which capture device have you found that works with the android phone.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 and cellular live stream to Youtube/Facebook?

I use the Magewell USB3 to HDMI adapter and/or the Febon180 UVC HDMI device:

There is also a new device (FEBON iCAPTURE) from these guys which inputs into an iPhone:

When I tried the iOS app they use on it's own (just the iPhone itself) the audio capture was skipping so I'm hestitant whether the iPhone capture would work any better with the iOS app.
