Hero6 Black live stream to Periscope

[ New ]

Hi, can I use the latest GoPro Hero6 Black to live stream via @PeriscopeCo (or another) app? Meaning, can I can use my Apple iPhone to streaming straight into the #Periscope App (and then Twitter/Facebook)? I know it works just fine with the Hero 4 I had but wanted to see if Periscope and you, GoPro, figured out how to make it work for your latest, most expensive ;-) camera. Thank You! Cheers!

I just tested it and was successful using Periscope with my GoPro Hero6 Black. Was able to record on GoPro and stream simultaneously. Just connect phone to camera via GoPro app then start up Periscope and it should recognize it. It was very easy for me to get it to work.

My cell reception wasn’t good and the stream was glitchy was but it connected just fine.

Yeah, I saw that but the HERO5 won't work with Periscope Live streaming (only the HERO4), and before I spent $400 on the new HERO6 Black I wanted to here a Yes or No on Periscope compatibility. Thanks

only works with the older Hero4 at the moment. The Hero5 or Hero5 Session or the the latest Hero6 will NOT work with Periscope (verified by GoPro customer support after multiple emails/attempts to get a real answer)

Never mind, meant to write "GoPro support is NOT able to confirm that it works (livestreaming on Periscope) with the Hero6 Black ;-(

I have GoPro Hero 6 Black and tried to livestream using the GoPro and the Apple iPhone 7 with Periscope and it is an extremely terrible feed that breaks up every second with loud popping noises when trying to stream. I would not advise making such a purchase! I made this mistake already. My sole purpose of having a GoPro was to livestream baseball games with better footage (field of view and resolution) than a cell phone. GoPro doesn't connect to anything that I have found in order to livestream and stay connected with good quality. It relies on the cellular connection to stream the video because the wifi is being used to connect the phone to the gopro.

 

If you come up with a better idea, I would love to hear it! I have spent 2 months researching this and have had zero luck, no help from GoPro either to support their device for the purpose of livestreaming!! So sad! You would think a company that has made so much would put more effort into making this work!

 

Any new information would be appreciated!!

Hi!
I have got GoPro 6 to work with periscope on an iPhone 8.

But I first got a black screen in periscope.
Then I changed the WiFi band on the GoPro from 5 to 2.4 GHz and got a picture.

I haven’t tested it much so can’t say anything about other issues people have.

should be a simple   thing like turn on camera first,  wifi is on, then open the wifi of your phone then gopro app  and you see it in live feed then simply open Periscope and   you're good to go. what I do.

I have hero 5 and hero 6 up until about a month ago both cameras worked fine on periscope but at this point in time they will no longer connect. The only camera periscope recognizes is iPhone camera (iPhone 7plus). During that time period iPhone has had two updates. I reached out to periscope through their support site multiple times with absolutely zero responce. There is no support phone number that lets you speak to a tech person. I posted on their site with no responce. What a way to run a company
