@annym4612, GoPro action cameras aren't designed to be used as webcams. However, other users were able to get around the process by using an HDMI-to-USB video converter that can change the HDMI input into a webcam signal.

We've outlined additional devices that you'll need in setting up a GoPro as a webcam. See https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam for more information. The article also includes info about setting up your GoPro with some of the popular video conferencing services like Zoom, WebEx, and Skype if that's what you're trying to achieve.

 

Feel free to post back if anything else comes up. Stay stoked, and have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!
