Re: why my GoPro 9 has not supported the live preview

Very good question.. I assumed that’s because of the high resolution, the phone is not capable of playing it quickly. This is my own explanation lol let us see what gopro say.

Re: why my GoPro 9 has not supported the live preview

GoPro have already answered this question in another post.  According to GoPro the camera is actually doing so much work (live post processing of recorded image, stabilization etc) that there simply isn't enough processing power left over for the camera to also send a live preview of the image.  Hence on the Hero 9, this is now not an option.
