How can I use my Hero 4 silver with fpv? Which port can be used with an fpv transmitter (5.8GHz)?

Have seen You Tubes of people using Hero with fpv goggles, etc, but I get no video out of my usb-mini port (Hero 4 silver).  Which port (mini usb or micro HDMI) do I need to use?  Are cables available to link to a 5.8GHz transmitter/receiver?

Hello @richardv00432. For live feed, HERO4 cameras output uncompressed video over HDMI output. The HDMI port allows the camera to feed to an external display; Output video signal to HDTV monitor or broadcasting product (i.e. converter, switcher, HDMI recorder, etc.) There is information here https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/HERO4-HDMI-Output-Information and here https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/Best-Ways-to-Achieve-Video-Out-Signal-via-HDMI that might help.
