Trying to use GoPro 8 as an external Streaming WebCam

[ New ]

I saw a video on YouTube of how a Pro 7 with a El Gato Camlink was turned into a webcam.  So I thought I would give it a shot with my Pro8.  I keep buying cables and accessories and getting nowhere.

 

I am a DJ and I want to broadcast on Fb.  I want to use a sound card to capture good quality audio, and I want to use a my go pro for the video part.  I am Using the following. 

 

Laptops

MacAir

HP Laptop

 

Soundcard

Focurite

 

Video Capture Card

El Gato HD60S 

(The El Gato Camlink one is either not available or imposible to buy)

 

Cameras I have tried with:

Sony HANDYCAM

Go Pro 8 Black

 

Sottware

OBS Broadcast

 

Cables:

Micro HDMI to HDMI

USB C to USB 2.0

Mini HDMI to HDMI

 

Today I just got the MEDIA mod since it has a MICRO HDMI output but still not working.  

 

I was able to use the SONY camera succesfully for broadcasting.  I have not been able to set up the PRO to do anything.
