can you get sound on the preview mode?

Hi I have set up my camera in a differnet room but there is no sound on the preview using the app on a samsung tablet.  Is there any way you can get sound?

Re: can you get sound on the preview mode?

No, the preview mode is simply for framing a shot before setup.  It does not stream audio.

Hi @dmt133

 

The live preview does not have audio.

The app live preview is used to help frame the shot/s.

File playback should have audio on the app.

 

 

Thanks!

GoPro hero 3 and gopro App they offered sound then gopro had that bright idea to MUTE it and ever since we have no audio ever since I am a long term goproer.
