Use GoPro6 with Wirecast?

I Use GoPro5 as cam sorce for Wirecast 8.1, and it works. Se picture (img_9702). Her shown with Blackmagic Media Express. But when i connect GoPro6, it does not  give any picture.

 

Connections via hdmi + Black magic Ultrastudio MiniRecordr (grey box) + thunderbolt2 + transition to thunderbolt3 /USB C in MacBook Pro.

 

Is there some settings in GoPro6 that can change this problem?

Re: Use GoPro6 with Wirecast?

Hi everyone!

 

Kindly get in touch with our Support Team regarding this issue. We'd like to test this out further and identify if this is on the HERO6 Black's software or something on Wirecast's compatibility.

 

Please let them know that the setup works with a HERO5 Black.

 

You may also reach out to Wireacast so they can initiate their own compatibility test.

 

 

Thanks!

EJ

Re: Use GoPro6 with Wirecast?

Having the exact same problem (macbook pro, ultrastudio mini recorder, hero 6).  I've set the gopro to output live over hdmi, I've tried all combinations of framerates/resolutions.  Other devices work fine but the gopro hero 6 does not.  This is not just wirecast, but any capture or live stream programme (premiere, obs etc.)

Re: Use GoPro6 with Wirecast?

Hi everyone!

 

HERO5 Black internals are entirely different from HERO6 Black. This is issue is something to do with the compatibility with the newer camera.

 

I suggest to refer to Wirecast regarding this so they can conduct their own investigation/tests.

 

Thanks!
