Is there any chance the GoPro or any other app will allow live streaming (to Youtube or Facebook) from the Hero 6 via a cell phone's cell signal?
So the Hero 6 makes a bluetooth/wifi connection to a cell phone and then the app on the cell phone broadcasts the stream via a cell signal directly to facebook or youtube
That would allow it to be used in single camera situations without need any additional kit.
Currently I am only able to do this via a USB3 to hdmi adapter which then goes into my Samsung Galaxy S8 via an OTG cable which means the S8's battery will not last all day even when being charged wirelessly (since the USB-C port is already being used). This setup also requires a specialist app like CameraFi Live.
All of this hassle could be solved if the GoPro App or some other app could accept a wifi/bluetooth connection from the Hero 6 and then ALSO have the ability to broadcast to Youtube or Facebook via the cell signal.
The Periscope option (on Android) does not seem to be available...
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes it would be helpful if Youtube and Facebook allowed Hero's to wirelessly live stream, and I would think individual camera makers would be well placed. I wonder why Periscope stopped supporting the GoPro's?

I can only vouch for hte Hero 5 Session and Black, and wondeer if they did the same? On factory had it, as soons as an update they removed it. till both partys had an agreement. It was not of the importance till later on that it was added back in. In genera I have to wait as well for Apps to update to work and I made a call and that is more or less the thing both parties will need to be on hte same page and get them resolved to work, it can be a simple add on and done? With FB and Youtube who knows maybe it's a little more then a simple add? With GoPro and Youtube you think it be on there since the Hero 4 time. And fB as weell?
I have other camera's Like Yi and they use the Hot spot of your phone and that I do not care for due to charges. so same can be one reason for this . while there are plans coming out with unlimited data. so all parties will Benefit. a win win .
GoPro Youtube and Facebook all three must talk and work this out Our feedback (I) submitted? It is a waiting game so to speak.
