Gopro Hero 7 Black Facebook Live linear view settings

[ New ]

Hi all:

I am having trouble while using the facebook live in my gopro hero 7 black, I have 2k 60fps Linear setting and every time I go live on facebook the settings go back to 1080 60fps Wide (fish eye). I'm more concern Linear view than the wide view. Is this a Bug? what am I doing wrong? If anybody can help with this issue that would be great

Hi @bluepike70852

 

Live stream will always be on Wide FOV.

If you choose to save a copy on your SD card, the last settings set on Video mode will be utilized.

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

This sucks. 
I bought the camera to use in live streaming and the Facebook live view is so wide and the fish eye makes it look ridiculous when you are sitting 2 feet from the camera. 

Why can't this be addressed in the firmware. Whatever view setting that is chosen should be applied when go live. 
Why the default to Wide view. Makes no sense to me. 

I may have to send this back and look at other option.
