How to use Gopro in a webex meeting

We are looking for a way to stream video from a wireless body- or head-mounted camera (such as a GoPro) during Webex Meetings. We are using Webex Meetings to conduct remote demonstrations, trainings, and troubleshooting with our customers, and we need to be able to physically interact with equipment and instruments and have customers be able to see what we are doing from a first-person perspective. As far as I know, Webex products don't support video stream input via RTMP (which GoPros use for output, for example), and there aren't any commercially-available wireless webcams. We would like to avoid using mobile phones if possible. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated so we can continue to use one platform (Webex) for both video and audio, rather than having to use a video streaming service in addition to Webex at the same time.

Re: How to use Gopro in a webex meeting

@quickhill336, GoPro action cameras aren't natively designed to be used as webcams. However, we've outlined additional devices that you'll need in setting up a GoPro as a webcam. See https://gopro.com/en/us/news/how-to-use-gopro-for-webcam for more information. The article also includes info about setting up your GoPro with some of the popular video conferencing services like Zoom, WebEx, and Skype if that's what you're trying to achieve.
