Introduction: Streaming Twitch on Your Gopro WIRELESSLY!

Attempting to LiveStream my Parkour teams work in the Gymnastics gym, I needed to find a way to use my GoPro, because my webcam really was not cutting it. But the GoPro does not allow for USB--> Video. Nor do i have a $100++ HDMI Capture card. So i found a way to make it all work like it's NOT SUPPOSED TO! =D


YOU WILL NEED:
A) Gopro Hero 3 / Gopro with Wifi
B) a Laptop (The Better the Laptop, The Better the quality)
with both WIFI and Ethernet connections. Ethernet for Internet connection and Wifi to see the GoPro
C) VLC Player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
D) Open Broadcaster Software https://obsproject.com/

Step 1: Setup the Gopro

MAKE SURE YOUR GOPRO IS CHARGED!

Do All Necessary updates and Wifi Setup for your Gopro, If you can already attach your gopro to a Mobile device then you are ok.


Make sure to set your gopro's wifi to ON! if its not broadcasting wifi it wont work!

Connect your Laptop to your Gopro - Search for the Wifi Signal, then when it asks for the password put it in.

Step 2: Browse to the GoPro!

Open a Web Browser and browse to http://10.5.5.9:8080/ 
This is the Devices IP Adress.

Follow the folders: Live --> Then go to the second file named amba.m3u8

Then copy the full URL of that  amba.m3u8 webpage.

Step 3: VLC PLAYER!

Now with VLC player installed, Go to the Media tab and click "Open Network Stream" (ctrl+N)
and Paste the URL that is given to you from the amba.m3u8 webpage and CLICK PLAY!
 You Should now be watching your gopro livestream!
** THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A 3 SECOND DELAY

Step 4: Start Up the Livestream Software

If you havent already download  https://obsproject.com/ or whatever streaming softrware you would like. 

This will allow you to do an option of "Window Capture" which allows for any program currently running to be viewed. 

You will need to find your Stream key for your twitch account to be able to let the software communicate with the livestream

on www.twtich.tv go to dashboard and click Stream Key **DO NOT SHARE THIS WITH ANYONE OR THEY CAN BROADCAST ON YOUR CHANNEL!!

Go into Broadcaster's settings and paste in your Key

Step 5: LiveStream Settings and Quality

Configure your settings accordingly. the software will help you optimize all possible.
If you need help with this there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube. 

After Configuring your Broadcaster settings START THE STREAM!!

Step 6: Live Streams Can Take a While, Dont Let Your Battery DIE!!

I personally Just Ordered a Portable Battery:

And will be mounting my gopro on top of it and this will charge my Gopro Forever ontop of being able to livestream WITH NO WIRES FROM THE CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER!

Enjoy!

    Nice guide but in order to
    get the best video quality from your GoPro you need to use a wired setup. I can
    record full HD from my GoPro directly to my PC and I can also use my GoPro as a
    webcam in Skype, Facebook Messenger and WebEx. Here's the guide to this setup: https://actiongadgetsreviews.com/how-to-use-a-gopro-as-a-webcam

    Just tried this with a hero 3 silver and it sends a link to "Cherokee
    index of" and the live folder is empty, Any thought s here or is this no
    longer a plausible action that the hero 3 silver can do for live
    streaming???

    I tried it with my GoPro Hero Plus but when I go to the URL
    http://10.5.5.9:8080/, the list is empty, there's no amba.m3u8. Any
    help?

    Read this article, how to go live via your GoPro camera - https://www.yatko.com/live-streaming/gopro-live-streaming

    Does this only work with the Hero 3 because I have a Hero 4 Silver

    I know this is an old post....but...I am trying to use this simply to have a live view of the gopro on my screen (sort of as a "jumbotron" at an event). If I view on VLC, the quality is fairly low. Is there a way to improve this? If not, do you know another good way to watch .m3u8 files?

    Thanks!
