GoPro Webcam and GoPro Hero 5

[ New ]

Ciao a tutti,

ho appena scaricato il software GoPro Webcam;

Io posseggo una GoPro Hero 5 Black e vorrei collegarla al mio Macbook 13 2020 (Processore Intel) attraverso la porta USB C. 

Quando la collego, anche se il software è attivo, non mi trova la GoPro. Attraverso il il Software Quick, la GoPro viene vista ed ho la possibilità di gestirla, ma con la app Webcam non viene riconosciuta. Sulla GoPro (Diplay Ink) c`è solo il simbolo della USB e non della webcam. Qualcuno ha una soluzione al problema o un workaround? La versione di GoPro Webcam è 1.0.224 mentre quella della GoPro Hero 5 Black è 2.70.

Hi @giovannis5760

 

For HERO7 Black and older cameras, you would need a capture card. 

Check out the steps specific for these models on https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam

 

Thanks!

Hi @giovannis5760

 

What capture card are you using?

The HERO5 Black is not compatible with the Webcam App.

 

Thanks!

Hi @giovannis5760

 

The Webcam APP is compatible with the HERO8 Black and the HERO9 Black.

If you are using an older model, you would need a capture card to be able to use the camera as a webcam.

 

What capture card are you using?

Can you also send us a picture of your setup?

 

Thanks!
