How to setup Facebook live with Hero 7 - Tutorial

1. Connect your camera to the GoPro app

2. Tap "Live" and then "Setup Live"

3. App starts to search Wifi connections. When it finishes the search, don't select any. Turn on your WiFi HotSpot

4. Camera reconnects to your phone using Bluetooth

5. App starts to search connections again. Choose your own Hotspot

6. Now choose your streaming settings and you're ready to go

 

Here's a little video how to do it:

Hi @stoutpike35111

 

Try unpairing the camera from the app then pair it again.

Verify the settings of your personal hotspot and make sure that the app is up to date.

 

For reference: Getting Started With Live Streaming

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

Ej

My app shows nothing. Cause when logged onto the camera, its like the app wont use the cellular connection. Do we change to the hotspot while the "circle" is rotating?

Hi @jeppay,

I have the same issue but I find that turning on wifi, bluetooth and cellular data resolved the issue.

Let me know if it works for you as well.

I have all those settings on. Tapping "Set Up Live" first worked when i told the camera to use 2.4Ghz.

But the RTMP solution doesnt work with YouTube cause i cant put in my stream key :) so that needs to be implimented into the app.

Plus being a public figure i need to be able to choose my Facebook Page, not my private profile. So that ALSO needs adding in the app :)

Very good observations you got there, @jeppay. Thank you for the feedback. I will get this reported to the team. Will you be able to send or attach a screenshot of what you get when you try the RTMP for YouTube? Many thanks!

@jeppayYou turn your hotspot on after app has done the 1st network scan. Then the app reconnects and scans networks again. Then you can choose your own hotspot.
