Re: Unable to set up the camera.

Their toll free number here is  1-855-635-3578.  I suggest go online not on your smartphone because I can also find that number and go to gopro.com/contactus and call them at their working hours.   If you can not work thecamera by that video then "youu and the camera . something is wrong.
