Hero 3 Black no video preview on iPhone XR

[ New ]

Can anyone confirm that it is not possible to have video preview from Hero 3 Black with latest 3.02 firmware using GoPro app on iPhone XR. All video resolutions do not work for me.


It appears that video preview was possible on an iPhone at some point in the past, but no longer works. I've seen links to a document that vaguely states it might work at some resolution. I understand this is not the most current GoPro. However, I want to be sure I'm not doing something wrong before I pitch it in the bin. It's useless to me without video preview while recording.

Hi @johnnyk02


For HERO2, HERO3, & HERO3+

Live Preview should be supported in most video resolutions. However, as the GoPro App continues to be updated and evolve, some resolutions may no longer support Live Preview.

Thanks for the comment. I've seen this before and I have followed links to a GoPro document that says the same thing. However, I have tried every combination of resolutions I can think of and none of them provide live preview while recording video.


Is there anybody who says they get live video preview on an iPhone X or XS, or XR, with a Hero3 and the current GoPro app? It would seem that GoPro themselves would likely have a regression test environment that could definitively answer this question.


I'm an adult and can understand that maybe all features are not supported on an "old" Hero3. I'm am simply looking for confirmation that I am not missing something, some little trick or technique...


Thanks again for taking the time to respond.
