wohin würdest Du denn mit 4K streamen wollen, @quicksummi2885 ? Mir fällt da auf Kommando gar nicht so viel ein, wo 4K unterstützt wird im Video Live Stream.

Hello @quicksummi2885. The GoPro Webcam desktop utility has 1080p (default) and 720p options only. Check out this article for more information.

I can't even get my Hero9 to be recognized by my iMac or Windows 10 computers. I plug it in and nothing happens. Is anyone else having this issue? Software seems to be for Hero 8. GoPro hasn't released a Hero9 version yet?

I didn't think I needed it but I used the USB cable that came with the Hero 9 and its working now. I don't know why my other cable doesn't work but the cable that comes with the camera is very short which is why I was using a different cable.

I don’t necessarily want to use it for live streaming but I want to be able to record the video output directly to my hard drive instead of going to the SD card and that is the only way I can figure out how to do it beside recording the HDMI output from the media mod but that takes a capture card and is very process intensive.
