Can I charge my GoPro Hero5 Black while live streaming?

[ New ]

I've been using my GoPro Hero5 Black as a webcam while working from home but can't figure out how to charge it while it live streams. Is that possible? I'd like to be able to just take the battery out and have it run straight from a USB outlet. When I remove the battery and plug in  USB-C power it just flashes on and off continuously. Holding the power button doesn't fix anything. I also don't need to be recording this footage so is there a way to purely use it as a webcam? ie no recording & no batteries?
