Re: GoPro Webcam for Windows Beta is available!

[ New ]

It's still in beta, though it feels like an early alpha as it's apparently not working for A LOT of people.
The fact that the facebookgroup is closed to new members is likely because: 
- they have enough members for their testing purposes
- it was flooded with too many message saying it doesn't work as it's supposed to

The problem is, Gopro still forwards you to that facebookgroup and then you have to follow the link in the description of that group to actually download the software. They should NOT have promoted this as long as it's not functioning on a basic level. It was also very difficult to find information about it NOT working as it's supposed to.

GoPRO is behaving unethically (and against US advertising regulations) when it advertises the GoPRO camera can be used as a webcam.

 

It doesn't work.

 

GoPRO doesn't care.

 

They are too busy laughing at us counting the money from all the people they tricked into buying a camera that doesn't work as they claim it does. 

 

They could fix it. Put the control back on the menu and take out the poorly written bad code that causes it to fail. 

 

GoPRO doesn't want to fix it. They can make more money selling a product that doesn't actually do what they claim because everybody wants a product that does what they claim. We just don't learn about it not working until after they take the money.

Will it ever support Go Pro Hero7 Black as it is written on the home page?

@dev

 

Can we have the webcam settings (exposure, brightness, saturations, anti-flicker, etc) enabled. I know you guys can do this in the software ;)

Dont run preview. You can't have 2 feeds simultaneously. If gopro webcam app crashed, force close it from the task manager or restart your pc. Then start zoom normally. Dont touch the setting on gopro app or preview. 

 

Works perfectly here.

I can even use the OBS Feed, and select in Zoom "OBS Virtual Camera".

 

Be sure you use the latest w10 build 2004 update.
