Connecting a GoPro Camera to Livestream Studio

Livestream Studio includes the ability to bring a GoPro Hero 3 and 4 as a remote camera source via the GoPro camera's built-in WiFi hotspot.

At this time, the GoPro Hero 4 Session and GoPro Hero 5 cannot be used as remote cameras in Livestream Studio.

To connect a GoPro Hero 3 or 4 as a remote camera, first enable the WiFi on the camera by pressing the WiFi button the side of the camera (or by activating it within its settings).

GoPro Hero 4 Black will have lower latency (less than 1 second) than GoPro Hero 3 (1-2 seconds).

If your Livestream Studio system does not have a built-in Wi-Fi receiver*, you can purchase a USB receiver, such as TP-LINK TL-WN727N 150Mbps, and plug it in to a USB port or a USB hub.

 

*Livestream Studio hardware products (HD31/HD51/HD510/HD1710, etc.) do not include built-in Wi-Fi receivers. Newer HD550's do have a Wi-Fi receiver built-in, but you will need an additional receiver if you intend to broadcast over Wi-Fi.

Check your system’s network settings to ensure the Wi-Fi is enabled and connected to your GoPro camera.

If you have secured your GoPro's Wi-Fi hotspot, you will need to enter the password in order for Livestream Studio to recognize it.

Once your system recognizes the GoPro’s WiFi, the GoPro will appear as a source in your remote camera modules.

Select the GoPro to activate it. You can then switch it into Program as desired.

Please note that the GoPro's wireless output to Studio does not exceed 240p.

    Yes, you can bring in up to 10 remote cameras sources in Studio. GoPro can also connect directly via HDMI.

    Hello,
    Can we receive a true 1080 60 ips from the GoPro? Because for a mobile phone, according to Matt S, "the highest quality using a mobile device is 540p."

    Hi Philippe, the highest quality that a GoPro will reach the Livestream platform will be 1280x720p 30fps. If the quality is 1080i, it will automatically be converted down to 720p.

    So in this example, is the computer connected to the Internet via a wired connection, and the GoPro is being accessed through a separate WiFi network, created by the computer? If so, is this possible with other types of remote cameras?
