how do i get video out on the USB-c port

I keep reading that you should be able to get video out on the USB-C port, but I cant get it to work.

Hero 5 Black.  I can get video on the HDMI port okay.  Is it possible to get video via the USB-C port?

Re: how do i get video out on the USB-c port

The USB-C port is for charging and for transferring video out to another device like your computer. It won't transfer live/playing video out like the HDMI can.

 

If you're looking to transfer the content, download Quik for Desktop at https://shop.gopro.com/softwareandapp/quik-%7C-desktop/Quik-Desktop.html. Once you've downloaded and installed Quik, connect your camera to the computer using the USB-C cable, and then turn the camera on. The sync process should launch automatically.
