Re: Hero5 Session: Wifi vs. Bluetooth

For other readers: Here's how to do it: https://github.com/KonradIT/goprowifihack/issues/101#issuecomment-356087367 

The trick (well - workaround) is to use the GoPro App from the phone to keep the camera alive, and the (at the same time) connect to it via HTTP from the app you are developing yourself.

Re: Hero5 Session: Wifi vs. Bluetooth

Ok so in that case, will i still be able to use my phone's wifi to connect to the interet even if the phon'es wifi is used to connect to the gopro built in wifi?

I am a bit confused now.

Nope - you can only use the wifi either as the phone's own hotspot (that the gopro can connect to) OR using it to hook up to another hotspot (providing internet).
