The GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max 360° cameras require a special pairing process for activating the camera’s WiFi adapter. 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).
The app is available for several systems and can be downloaded here.
The following sections show how to enable the WiFi network on each platform. This step has to be done each time you want to use the WiFi network. It is also important to apply each step in the same order as shown in the video.
Microsoft Windows 10
Apple macOS (10.10 or newer)

Mas como é que se liga ao mesmo tempo o wifi da go pro e de acesso à internet para fazer live streem ?
For the Hero 8 the best way is to use this driver: https://www.gopro2webcam.com/
With this driver you can use the same WiFi connection for the internet and the GoPro camera.

I am getting an Error while connecting device: 5 on windows 10 on the wifi connector for hero 8. I have a Hero 8 Black it shows on the list of devices as GoPro 1756. https://imgur.com/a/CabquiV
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.
Thank you! that worked.
Thank you, that worked!
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? 🙂
Let me add that I get connected to the GoPro WiFi. However I can not connect to it in the suite.
I did the process over again with linking the PC and the phone, deleted and did the process over again with setting up the WiFi connector stuff and it worked.
Are there any plans to release this app for Linux?
The app is only available for Raspberry Pi Linux at the moment.
