Live Streaming (again) - Solving Internet Connection - Hero 7 Black

Dear all,

 

I am using android version of GoPro App. Currently if I want to connect to the camera, I will use camera's hotspot i.e. no internet connection. I don't see any other solution to connect to camera and control it e.g. no bluetooth connection with the app. 

In other threads, people always mention to connect to wifi for faster connection (during live streaming). I just did not understand how at the same time the mobile connect to different wifi (one for the gopro camera, other for the internet) or how to connect camera to wifi hotspot. I can't connect to internet whenever I connect my phone to camera.

 

so I will need to know a solution either to:

  • connect my phone to camera without wifi?
  • connect camera to phone wifi hotspot or other hotspot (any menus in the phone?)
  • or simultaneously connect phone to camera through camera wifi and connect to internet through mobile network.

trying to browse the internet for this solution and it seems some people already have the solution but did not explain in detail how... :)

 

thanks in advance...

Re: Live Streaming (again) - Solving Internet Connection - Hero 7 Black

Hi @egrang1412

 

When on live stream, your camera's connection to the app will switch to Bluetooth.

You should be able to stream either by using your home network or your phone's data(hotspot).

 

See Getting Started With Live Streaming for reference.

You may also reach out to our Support Team for assistance through https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs  

 

Thanks!
Ej
