How to connect to GoPro Hero 8 WiFi network

This tutorial shows how to enable the WiFi network using the WiFi Connector for Hero 8 app. The app pairs your device with the GoPro camera over Bluetooth and enables the camera’s WiFi network. You can then use the WiFi network for live streaming or camera control (e.g. with the Camera Suite or Camera Controller apps).

  2. Mas como é que se liga ao mesmo tempo o wifi da go pro e de acesso à internet para fazer live streem ?

    Obrigado

    • Please try the following:
      1.) Start pairing mode on the GoPro camera.
      2.) Connect to the GoPro’s Bluetooth using the Windows Bluetooth manager.
      3.) Stop the pairing mode on the GoPro (this step is important!).
      4.) Start the pairing mode again on the GoPro.
      5.) Connect to the GoPro from the WiFi Connector app.

  3. I installed both the suite and the connector, but I don’t see the suite appearing in the connector app. Like they’re not linked in some way.

    What may I do about that? 🙂
