Gleiche Frage hier!

 

Habe keine Lust mir eine 90 € MediaMod abzocke zu kaufen, nur damit aus dem USB-C Anschluss ein Bild kommt, aus dem genau gleichen Anschluss, aus dem der MediaMod einen HDMI holt.......

 

Bin ich eigentlich der einzige der sich da abgezockt fühlt???

I would love to see this as well.

@GoPro
Please also make the webcam app available for linux (ubuntu). As there exists one for MacOS it should be super easy to compile something equivalent for the linux world.
If you don't have the man power just publish some details about the usb Protocol somebody will build something to foreward the image data to a video device.
