Hero 8 black video output to TV via usb-c to hdmi cable

Tried to connect Hero 8 black to my 4k TV using usb-c to hdmi cable. TV would not recognize any input signal. How do I play gopro video from hero 8 black to 4K TV?

Hello Everyone. As @fishycomics mentioned, the HERO8 Black can output to a TV using the Media Mod and a micro-HDMI cable. It does not work with a USB-C to HDMI cable.

When the $79.99 Media Module arrives and a HDMI cable purchased as well. Become  quite expensive that route.

I have a USB-c To HDMI cable that I bought at Best Buy. I use it to connect my MacBook Air to a TV. It works well for that. Under the input output menu for the go Pro eight hero, there is nothing under the menu. I think it is currently not available to output to a TV.

Not that hard to figure out guys. I used a SD card reader as the usb camera card media adaptors you use for your digital camera or micro sd card reader you use to plug into a usb port on laptop. I just connect that to my tv usb connection port and choose media port on tv source selection and my movie files are there in the usual order like my computer DCMI then GOPRO folder and. then all the movie or video clilps are there with thumbnails to click on.  Very easy and cheap 10 dollar option or you may already have one of those card readers from USB. I am a professoinal photographer by trade for the past 25 years and dont know why poeple always insist on plugging the camera or device to TV instead of the memory card directly to computer or tv.

I think what the members want is not to carry   a ton of gear. When they  head out, camera only. they can  hook up directly to their  friends set and share the fun that nite.   WIth the Media Module they will get the Option but they were not intending on dishing out again More Money. especially if they got no use for  the module.  I guess its  till one finds a solution that fits tehir need, and this is one option.  Still waiting for some one to Wifi it via airdrop or smartphone.

yes fishy I want the world and I want it now and I want the world to fit in my pocket and make zero effort to get what I want. Thats your example. Pfff.....

     You want to watch it on your tv put a usb SD card reader adaptor the size of my pinky finger into your pocket "which is smaller then a usb type c thunderbolt sized adapter and a HDMI cable" The SD usb card reader is about the size of a tiny stick of gum and half the size of the things mentioned above by you and others.  If you want to watch it on a tv then you need to make a effort and not whine about silly issues about carrying something so ridicously small and tiny. look at the photo 

 

Seriosly Fishy its time for your doctor to re-write your script.......

I've got an adapter 3/4 that size that resides on my key chain. Works great and isn't difficult to carry around at all. I paid maybe $10 (or less) for it.

danier15 exactly I know they make those microSD card readers to usb type A connectors for like 5 bucks and those ones are even smaller then the options I showed in the above photos. So tiny like you said you can put them on a key chain or pocket. No reason to buy some 80 dollar media module to accomplish this. Or worse a Type C thunderbolt adaptor to HDMI connection and then try to connect that to tv with go pro hanging off a cable by the TV.  

 

    People just take the micro SD card out of the GoPro camera stick it in the Micro SD card reader and connect the usb card reader to the back of USB Connection port on the back of the tv. Not that hard folks. Never can understand why people get it in their heads they have to connect the whole camera or device to the tv itself. Just pull the Media card out of the camera or device and use the memory card itself.
