GoPro Hero8 Black webcam not detected in apple M1

[ New ]

Hi,

 

I am trying to use my GoPro Hero8 Black as a webcam on my mac mini m1, BigSur 11.2, but it doesn't work. Any idea how to make it work or how to debug the error?

 

- Sometimes I can't get the camera to start as webcam mode.

- The times it starts I can't use it as a device on Skype, Zoom, Slack o Google Meet because it is not recognized as a device on my Mac.

 

Any ideas?

Hi @mariustanya 

I have gone through multiple threads and I can't make it to work on Zoom for via Rosseta nor Teams, nor Google Meet, not even photoBooth (attached picture with camera preview and photobooth not working.

Thank you for the screenshot. @kevinmamaqi

 

Do you observe the same when launching the app through a different user profile on the Mac?

Can you also check if accessing the platforms through a browser will help?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

It doesn't help and it doesn't work from the browser either.

Hi @kevinmamaqi

 

Do you already have the Intel version of the Zoom app?

Can you also check if the steps shared on these threads will help:
