Is there a time limit while live streaming?

GoPro Hero 7 Black, Android Phone, WiFi + GoPro app.

 

I have managed to get live streaming to work to YouTube but have found that the stream drops after, very roughly, an hour or so.  This seem to be pretty consitantly the case.  THis leads me to wnoder if there time/data limit set to stop live streaming afer a certain amount?

Hi @dcb,

 

We'll check that. 

But as far as I know there is no time limit. 

Try to stream without SD card if you're not planning to save the video locally. 

 

Regards,

Thanks for the reply!  I'll give it a try.  I didn't realize the cam would function without the card!

Give it a few more tries.  No change in behavior.  After about 1:04-1:10 streaming simply stops.  The app claims that the WiFi conection was lost.  I'd believe it but I've tried the same experiment with some other devices and had no such issues.

Got it @dcb,

 

We'll check that. 

We'll try to replicate the issue. 

 

Thanks!
