Triggering recording and live preview via Bluetooth on PC

[ New ]

Hi,

Is there a tool that would allow me to connect to my go pro (6 and 7 HERO) from my PC (using a bluetooth adapter), and have a live preview and ability to trigger recordings?

Video is not supported via bluetooth as bluetooth does not have the needed bandwith for video transmission.  Your GoPro uses bluetooth for receiving operational commands only.  If a live preview is needed, a command is received via bluetooth to turn on the WiFi on the GoPro to begin WiFi transmission as WiFi has the needed bandwith for video.

 

So you would need a bluetooth and wifi adapter on your PC and then you could use something like https://www.toolsforgopro.com/cameratools

So is there a way to live preview more than one camera?

Does your PC support multiple WiFi connections at the same time?
