After a lot of searching, tutorial watching and talking to GoPro Technical Support (1 (855) 635-3578), I finally managed to get a live stream from GoPro Hero 4 to my Mac.
In this post, I will put emphasize on what I had problems with. I could not find these notes in any of the other tutorials but after troubleshooting and doing a sanity check using the GoPro app I managed to get the stream from the GoPro Hero 4.
Problemsand their solution:
The is a big lap of about 5 sec and the stream stops after a while.
In order to get a continues stream as soon as the stream begins the python code should be running.
I run it through the terminal by getting to the folder I saved it in and then write “python hero4-udp-keep-alive-send”.
Reducing the delay can be reached by puting this “ffplay -fflags nobuffer -f:v mpegts -probesize 8192 udp://:8554” in the terminal instead of step 2.
I found the following tutorials helpful:
