lagging while streaming

[ New ]

I have a Hero 8.  I would like to stream to facebook live using the 8 as my webcam.  When i select the gopro in the facebook camera options, everything is great.  As soon as I GO LIVE, the camera starts to lag.  If I wave my hand in front of the camera, it takes about 25-30 seconds to see it come across the monitor.  When it does, it's happening in super slo-mo.  

 

Are there any fixes for this?

 

My camera is up to date, and I'm on mac OS 10.15.6.

 

Thank you.

Hello, @peaceyfan. It is not unusual for the stream to lag behind the actual footage but 25 to 30 seconds is quite long. 

 

Have you already updated your HERO8  Black camera to version 2.0? Please do so. The steps under Manual Update here will guide you. See if updating to this firmware version will help clear the lag issue. For details on the improvements and bug fixes, see this page

 

Also, make sure that you are using a compatible cable to connect your camera with your computer. More tips are posted through this group for your reference.
