capture card - GoPro Webcam suggestions

[ New ]

Does anyone have suggestions on how to use a gopro 8 black as a webcam without a capture card or a decent one that works for the gopro for zoom, skype, teams etc (not the elgato or magwell bc the price gouging has gotten absurd)

This would be the official thread from GoPro

https://gopro.com/en/gb/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam

 

However the use of a capture card and a Media Mod are going to be required.

 

You can also buy software for about $80 to allow you to stream to your PC, but be aware, there is a delay present when you do this and it requires a bit of technical knowledge.

The fact is though, the GoPro cameras (any model) were simply not built to be webcams or used as such.
