Re: How to Connect pc to the gopro hero 5's Wi-Fi?

Great Question @marcog1333.

In this situation you want to control the GoPro

from your computer, this was possible on the HERO4 

and below, but now the HERO5 is different, and has

a different sending unit, so I'm sorry to say, it

won't work out, as you would think.

Yeah hopefully @marcog1333.

If you know some code or tech.

Visit https://developer.gopro.com/info

and you can actually sign up to make software

or customizes things for the new HERO5.

Have a look at this: control and live streaming from your PC/mobile device should be possible; hero 5 is similiar to Hero 4 but has more commands
