Live Hero5 Session with WiFi

Hi,

 

I have connected my PC via WiFi with the GoPro Hero5 session. But I can't access the /live/ folder ("http://10.5.5.9:8080/live/amba.m3u8"). I can access the videos: (10.5.5.9:8080/videos/DCIM/). The connection is correct.

 

With Hero4 and earlier yes you could. Can't get the Hero5 Session live URL anymore?

 

Thanks in advance.

Never seen this live folder command.

Refer to here https://github.com/KonradIT/goprowifihack

Should be still possible and similiar to Hero 4 Black

Re: Live Hero5 Session with WiFi

Hi,

 

there is another problem... The Hero5 Session session after a few minutes of inactivity automatically turns off the WiFi.

Is it possible to deactivate the auto off?

 

Thank you very much again.

As long as you bluetooth is active it will awaken camera within about 12 hours.

 

The LCD shuts down but not the connection.

Thanks for your reply.

 

But with the computer I haven't the Bluetooth. Is it possible to connect to the computer with Bluetooth?

 

The problem is that we want to leave the computer and the camera in a fixed place and broadcast streaming with OBS Studio.
