Re: Hero 7 Black - live stream to Facebook PAGE

Using the RTMP works however it’s no good when out and about as you need the laptop. I agree that it needs to be done through the GoPro App.

Exactly!! I’m not using my GoPro in my house! It’s a sports camera. COME ON GOPRO, STEP UP YOUR GAME. Get this resolved. Please!

Re: Hero 7 Black - live stream to Facebook PAGE

 

Yup, same pain for me too, wish the native app would support pages.

 

For now if I want to stream live from field, I need to bring my (super) old Android phone and:

 

1: Set my iphone as hotspot

2: connect the android phone on the hotspot (as it doesn't have it's own SIM/plan)

3: prepare the streaming on android phone chrome-bworser using desktop-mode

4: set gopro through the iphone

5: catch the stream on android and make it live

 

And now thinking about it, since the gopro needs also wifi does that even work connecting to the same phone hotspot while configuring it? Or do I need to have separate phone to act as hotspot?

 

Bottom line: Too much trouble, I just rather live stream from my iphone. Really considering returning the gopro since the feature is pretty useless at the moment.

It is by no means ideal (not letting GoPro off the hook here), but you can start the live session from a smartphone by setting your browser to "Desktop Site".  Then change the m.facebook to www.facebook.  From there, follow the instructions above.

I’m going to try that! I never thought about desktop mode on my phone browser. Thank you.

My experience it works with Android but not iphone. Or have you been able to do that also with iphone?

Nope... Not on iPhone. I'm trying to setup a persistent link on Facebook and then just use that link all the time but the facebook link provided is invalid.

This is WAY to hard. GoPro, please help!
