GoPro video out to PC



I would like to have the live gopro video visible on the screen of my laptop, in a similar way as can be done with HDMI connected to a TV, or with wifi using an app. I have a HERO 4 BLACK, but tips on other models are useful as well.


Therefore my question is that is there a method to view gopro live footage on a PC using for example

USB cable? (Some sources related to FPV drones have lead me to believe this could be done, but how?)

HDMI cable? (most laptops do not have HDMI IN, in my knowledge)

Wifi? (worked with HERO3 and 3+ using with vlcplayer)


It would be nice if there was an app for pc desktop that would do the same functions as the Capture app on mobile devices.


My applications would include using the gopro as a webcam, live stream to youtube for example, real time monitoring using a long cable, etc.


I believe there are other people out there as well, vloggers etc who would be interested in a solution.
