Hero 9: webcam is a no go. HELP

[ New ]

Hello, I have the latest Hero 9 firmware ( 1.60)  and I also have installed the My camera is set to USB GoPro Connect, the USB cable is brand new (but I tried several) and is plugged into a USB3 port. The camera is recognized, I get a blue dot on the icon app but I do not get any webcam feed. I get the GoPro screen and on the preview of the app, I am getting a black screen. I did change the preferences in the app between AMD Radeon RX 640 and Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630. I uninstalled and reinstalled the GoPro Webcam app a few times and watched several trouble shot videos as well as followed scrupulously the steps described on the goPro website without any success. 


Now, for the rant, I own several other action cameras and I have no problems getting them to work as a webcam. 


Hope someone here has a solution. Apparently, I am not the only one in this situation. 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @toughalp34301


What version is the Webcam App on?

Do you observe the same when using the camera without the battery?
