Hero 8 doesn't appear in network on mac when trying to use as a webcam

I have updated the firmware with the beta version and I have installed the GoPro Webcam app, I have checked the activity monitor and I can see that GoProWebcamDaemon is running, I have reset it.  I have also checked and confirmed that GoProWebCam plugin is installed. This still does not recognize the camera.  It does not appear in network connections.  I am using the cable (USB C to USB 3.0) cable that came with the camera.

What do I do now?  This feature is the primary reason I chose this camera.

Re: Hero 8 doesn't appear in network on mac when trying to use as a webcam

Which app will you be using the camera with?

 

For Teams my solution is:

1 - Uninstall Team by removing the Teams-app from the applications folder in Finder

2- Restart the computer

3- Download the Teams-app from the Internet and install again

4- Go to settings in Teams.

5- Select Gopro Wecam.

 

That should do it.
