Re: Live Streaming from my Hero 8 and media Mod

The only way to get a video feed out of the camera using HDMI is by using the media mod.  A USB-C to HDMI connector will not work.

 

There was information given in this post earlier about streaming a video feed wirelessly, I suggest you watch the youtube video telling you exactly how to do this.

Re: Live Streaming from my Hero 8 and media Mod

If you're having issues it's the capture card or PC.

You cannot just purchase any video capture card,
Different processes are used and the price you pay is the price you get. I personally use an elgato 60HDS ($249),
I've never had a problem streaming from my GoPro or DSLR.

It could also be your PC if it's not capable to process obs and the data being delivered to the PC

Re: Live Streaming from my Hero 8 and media Mod

I'm not 100% sure. You'd have to buy a USB-C to HDMI and try the capture card with that.

The problem is.....I don't know if GoPro allowed for that Information to be retrieved through USB-C..

Now you might be saying, why would they do that?

Because money. You have to buy the media mod to use HDMI output.
