Fasebook Livestream won't authenticate. Loops on asking for permissions.

I'm running in to a problem where if I try to set up a live stream for FB, I get the following permissions/authentication loop. https://imgur.com/gallery/kgukRZx

 

It goes from "Allow Facebook Live" and to "Login with Facebook" and then "We need your Permission" back to "Login with Facebook".

I've checked and confirmed the login on Facebook, as well as app permissions for the GoPro apps on FB as well. I've also logged out and back in to FB on the app.

 

This is Android 10. GoPro App v 6.0 (8108). GoPro7 Black firmware HD7.01.01.80.00

I am having the same issue.  Also with a Hero7black and a Note 10+.  it just keeps looping...

Re: Fasebook Livestream won't authenticate. Loops on asking for permissions.

You'll be having the same problem until the app/camera software is updated for Android 10.

Hopefully GoPro wasn't too busy on the new cameras and will supply it soon.

Re: Fasebook Livestream won't authenticate. Loops on asking for permissions.

I'm having the same issue with my GoPro. After I uninstalled the GoPro app for the first time as it keeps crashing, I reinstalled. That's where the problem started - It keeps asking for permission when it's already been granted.

It keeps saying that I have previously logged in to GoPro with Facebook.


Here's what has been done:

 

- Reset GoPro to factory setting

- Uninstalled and reinstalled GoPro app

- Clear cached on my phone
