How do I broadcast using a GoPro?

You can now broadcast your adventures LIVE with a GoPro! To get started, you’ll need an iPhone 5S, 6, 6+, 6S, 6S+ with iOS 8.2 or above and a GoPro Hero 4.

Setting up GoPro:

  1. Install the GoPro app from the App Store on your iPhone.

    2. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your GoPro with your iPhone.

    3. After pairing, go to Settings App > Wifi > Select your GoPro

    4. Make sure your GoPro is in Video mode, then open Periscope and tap the Broadcast tab to begin. Check out the GoPro camera toggle.

IMPORTANT GoPro Broadcasting Notes

  1. iPhone 5, 5c devices will broadcast, but will not save the broadcast to your camera roll. iPhone 5S and up are fully supported devices.
  2. The Hero 4 session is not supported at this time.
  3. Do not leave the Periscope app while broadcasting. Leaving Periscope will end the broadcast.
  4. Swipe Right during a broadcast to select which camera source you’d like to broadcast from (GoPro, front-facing iPhone, or back iPhone). You can also double tap the screen to toggle between the iPhone and GoPro cameras.
  5. You can lock the screen by tapping lock screen. Unlock by swiping across the top. This comes in handy if you need to slip your iPhone in your pocket and prevent accidental taps.

Broadcasting Best Practices

  1. Try sharing a new perspective. We’re now able to broadcast experiences we couldn’t with a phone.
  2. Share it on Twitter! Broadcasts play LIVE on your Twitter feed.
  3. Share with your followers and keep broadcasts from 3-5 minutes long.



Basically feeding the HDMI from my GoPro into a video capture box, and then I guess USB into my computer


As far as I know the only simple way to stream via GoPro and iPhone is on twitter.
There are various apps or programs for mac that you can use your GoPro as a live feed camera using the wifi on both of them.
As far as using the hdmi. GoPro do a component cable for video that you should be able to buy a cheapish USB video interface to stream…


Pretty sure if you’re GoPro is connected with wifi. You can get a MAC address of the camera and connect to it through vlc media, could screen capture that and then stream it.


Ustream Broadcasting with a GoPro camera

When using a GoPro camera with Ustream, the camera should be treated as any other HDMI output camera. Although the GoPro allows for mounting for active recording, in order to stream a connection to a network is still required. Please refer to the HDMI section of our knowledge base article on camera types to learn about connecting HDMI cameras to your encoder.

The GoPro has many wireless options, and can allow you to send footage to your iPad or computer in real time, but this feature is NOT compatible with streaming to an outside platform such as Ustream. In every respect, you will want to use your GoPro camera with Ustream in the same way that you would approach using any other HDMI camera.

Connecting the GoPro: using a capture device

When using the GoPro as a stationary camera, it should be treated simply as a regular camera with an HDMI output. This requires a capture device to be placed between the camera and the computer doing the encoding. Most capture devices will take in a source from a camera either as HDMI, HD-SDI, S-Video, or a composite signal, and convert the signal to be read by the input ports on a computer- Thunderbolt (for Mac) or USB 3.0 (for PC). Some capture devices, like the Elgato Game Capture HD, will also be able to use USB 2.0. In general, however, the data rate for a USB 2.0 port makes it not suitable for live video streaming. These capture devices can be either an external box for use with laptops, or a capture card for use with towers. Some examples of capture devices are:

Turn on your GoPro and connect the HDMI port to your capture device. Make sure that your capture device is plugged into your computer before opening your encoding software, and make sure that all drivers for the capture device are fully updated.

Connecting the GoPro without a computer: the VidiU

You can also connect your camera to a device that will both recognize the signal and directly encode the stream- the VidiU by Teradek. The VidiU will take in an HDMI signal, and will stream directly to your channel. Please note that although the VidiU will allow you to encode your signal and stream directly to Ustream without a computer, it still needs to be connected to a network.

Da un paio di settimane sto girando nella rete per trovare una soluzione al mio problema… ossia come utilizzare GO PRO H4 silver come web cam.

Premetto che per fare dirette streaming uso XSPLIT e fino ad ora con la mia telecamera SONY non ho mai avuto problemi in fase di acquisizione tramite la mia TERRATEC

Tutti i tutorial presenti su youtube parlano di HERO 3 e la fanno semplice su come collegarla offrendo varie strade:

Una delle soluzioni che ho incontrato prevedeva l’acquisto di un cavo composito con spinotto RCA (rosso, giallo e bianco)

E proprio collegando la GO PRO alla TERRATEC tramite cavo RCA riesco a farla vedere a XSPLIT ma mi riporta nella visualizzazione tutti i parametri a vista del display (logo video tempo di registrazione). C’è un modo per eliminare dal video queste informazioni?

utilizzare il cavo HDMI da attaccare alla porta HDMI del PC. In questo caso il computer non la riesce a vedere per niente.

usare il wifi però se uso il wifi non posso collegarmi al router wi-fi dove faccio le trasmissioni in diretta

XSPLIT in alternativa chiede l’indirizzo URL della GOPRO… Domanda: ne ha uno?
