GoPro used for livestream overheats!

[ New ]



I am going to start livestreaming, sometimes for hours at the time. I noticed the gopro heats up fast and turns off. I think I am at the lowest 1080p setting possible 60fps to match my streems resolution and gameplay. 


I have tried a few combinations, and as for now, the gopro remains connected to my pc via hdmi and to the power outlet via usb cable

BOTH the Battery and SD card have been removed as its only passing through live feed.



Is there any way to make my gopro not overheat? is mine just broken? How am I supposed to livestream for longer than an hour if my camera will shut down? please help!!

Hi @sweetshore08673


It is not unusual for the camera to get warm especially when using for longer periods.

Do you have the camera up to date?

Where/How is the camera set up or mounted?
