Hello @joaodericardo

 

Currently, this feature is not something that is supported by GoPro cameras. Periscope works with live stream but only using phones (which is not an option for you). Searching further, I have come across these links:

1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGeFFaVtZSM

2. https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/VLC-live-streaming/td-p/40814

3. https://www.wikihow.com/Stream-Your-GoPro-to-Your-PC-Using-VLC-Media-Player

 

Please note that these are not official GoPro links though. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
