[ Edited ]

Hello Tanya.
Did you had a chance to share this feature request with team? Are there any answers from them? I don't expect any hard commitments or statements. Just curious if this on the table or i should not wait for it at all.

Re: GoPro as webcam in Linux

Been checking this thread weekly for any updates.

 

Just a heads up, that webcam support for GoPro on Linux is the only thing stopping me from picking up a Hero 9. I don't want to have to purchase a Cam Link AND a media mod, when it can be connected to a PC via software.

 

I feel like extending support to Linux is a small cost for a substantial appeal to a large (and only growing) ecosystem.

 

I will continue to wait for any updates :)

The missing webcam support for GoPro on Linux, also for me, is the only thing stopping me from picking up a Hero 9. I'll buy it immediately when it will be implemented.

Thank you for supporting Linux

Re: GoPro as webcam in Linux

I do confirm the wish to have my Hero 5 available as a webcam when connected using the USB C cable to my laptop.

GoPro team, be my hero !

Thanks in advance
