GoPro hero 5 won't connect to webcam app

Webcam app says "No camera connected" when I plug the camera into my imac. The GoPro Quick App recognizes the camera though. How do I use the camera as a webcam? My computer is an iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017 running macOS Catalina version 10.15.7. My GoPro is a Hero 5 Black.

Hi @trapfromak

 

The webcam app only works with the HERO8 Black and the HERO9 Black.

For older models, you would need a capture card.

Check out the steps on this link.

 

Thanks!
