Max length of USB cable for video output ***Hero silver 3+***

Does anyone know how long of usb cable I can use for previewing video direct from the usb port from my GoPro Hero 3+ silver?

I want to use it underwater (With the waterproof housing of course) and send video to the surface and then either transmit to a receiver or directly feed into a monitor.

I can supply the GoPro external power or just use the battery if that would make a difference.  I'm hoping for about 100'

Hello @johny12284. Sorry, we do not have exact values for the maximum length of USB cable that the camera can work with for direct feed. Other members may have technical know-ow regarding the matter based on their experience so please continue to watch out for replies. Best regards!
