Can I autoupload content to the cloud via GoPro Plus while taking a timelapse video?

I have a GoPro Hero 6 black. We'll be taking a long term time lapse video of a construction project. If I have it connected to an external powersource and to wifi, will the auto-upload work in the middle of the time lapse? If I have to stop the time lapse first, can i just stop it and will it then immediately upload to the cloud or how long would I have to wait? Could I manually trigger it to upload to the cloud if I turn it off?

Re: Can I autoupload content to the cloud via GoPro Plus while taking a timelapse video?

Hello @spirymesa3524

 

Good question. Auto upload can start as soon as the time lapse file is saved on your camera so it cannot happen while the time lapse is still being recorded. In order for auto upload to work, please make sure that you have these requirements ready. The camera needs to be connected to your home Wi-Fi network, and any time the camera is plugged into a wall power source within the home network and the charge reaches 70% or above, it will begin to upload footage. 

 

In addition, here are expected auto upload behavior to consider. 

 

Hope this helps. 

 

Cheers, 
Marius
