Is it possible to stream video on GoPro 4 Silver over HDMI to Ubuntu?

Hi,

 

I would like to stream video over HDMI into Ubuntu 18.04.2

Is it possible?

I have connected an HDMI cable through an if-link to my Intel NUC running Ubuntu 18.04.2

Followed the instructions here: https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-use-my-GoPro-as-a-webcam

However, I am not getting any feed from the camera.

 

Is what I am trying to do possible with this camera (GoPro 4 Silver)?

Did anyone try it successfully and can point to a good guide?

 

Thanks

I would like to add that I am not seeing any USB connection indication on the GoPro display when the cables are connected.
Am I correct in the assumption that some connection indication has to be visible?
