gopro 7 webcam problem

[ New ]

Hello, I am currently set up my gopro hero 7 black as webcam. I followed the steps by gopro but when I turn on my gopro webcam the screen that apear is all black image. I dont know what it currently may be the problem. 


My settings for this setup are: 

- I am using unotac converty II video converter HDMI to USB to transmit the video to my PC.

- My gopro is set to "live" in preferences.

- I am using Windows 10 OS and alredy went to privicy settings to allow use of a gorpo webcam. 

- I power the Gopro 7 through USB C conector. 


When I turn on the web cam the screen is black. Anyone can know what may be the problem?

Thank you.

Hello, @adrianmoldovan. Check with the video converter manufacturer if it supports feed from a GoPro camera. As a pro tip, we recommend Magewell or Elgato Cam Link 4k because they enable streaming at 1080p 60fps and offer offers low-latency, meaning a minimal delay in the live video that’s being transmitted.


Alternatively, you may explore the live streaming feature for HERO7 Black while paired with the GoPro App.
