Webcam: Windows 10 Snap Camera unable to detect Gopro

[ New ]
Hello all, Gopro lists Snap Camera as a supported app, but it is unable to detect the Gopro webcam as an available input. Alternate app like Skype can use the Gopro webcam just fine. Windows 10, camera firmware, drivers, and software are latest version as of this posting.

Hi @beefgrits

 

Snap Camera app is supported on the GoPro Webcam for Mac.

See How to Use Your GoPro as a Webcam for reference.

 

Thanks!

ok, thank you. that page was more clear than what I had seen before. that is a blocker for me for now, would be cool if it hero 8 firmware could offer native support as a hard webcam instead of virtual camera via app, if feature requests are considered.
