How many cameras can this control? I do not mind paying for the app but is there a try before you buy version?
The theoretical limit is the Bluetooth device limit (I think it’s 50). I have tested the app with 6 GoPro cameras.
Can you switch between live previews?
No, the Bluetooth mode supports only basic camera controls but no live preview.
Any idea if this works with hero 8s?
The app is compatible with the Hero 8 camera.
Thanks for the swift reply!
Will I be able to have multiple GoPro’s running to YouTube live into the same “Event”? For example, I want 6 GoPro’s capturing the same thing from different angles, all streaming to YouTube Live.
You can control (e.g. start/stop recording) all cameras with the app at the same time. For streaming from multiple cameras you need an USB HDMI adapter for each GoPro.
How does the setup look… any YouTube videos on that…
You can find demo videos on https://www.tequnique.com/gopromulticam under “YouTube demo videos”.
If I’m filming outside and I don’t have access to a Wifi Connection, can I change and save the settings manually and then use the app to start recording in sync?
You can setup and save all settings on each GoPro and then use the app to start recording with all cameras.
Does the app support the GoPro Hero+
The Hero+ is not supported by the app.
If I run a hotspot on my mobile device and connect all the gopros to the hotspot. is there a way to see all the live feeds on one screen. Like a director’s view? It would be cool in the field to monitor all the camera operators from my device.
What GoPro model are you using?
This is sweet! I try to run 3 cameras simultaneously when I’m out kayak fishing.
Does your app sync time with the cameras?
I use a lot of power because of the darned WiFi needs of the GoPro app. I would love to extend my battery life and reduce the heat of my cameras when they are out in full direct sun.
The app does not sync the time of the cameras. It’s best to make some noise (e.g. clap your hands) so that you have a point of reference for synchronization later in your video editing software.
Thanks for the quick response.
The challenge is having 30 to 50 files for each camera per outing and the files always having the default time from the camera. I guess I’ll have to take the time to manually input the time.
I’ll still purchase your software as turning off wifi alone is a big plus.
Any new features on the horizon?
On which system are you planning to use the app (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.)? Do you have a specific feature in mind?
IOS. I don’t have a specific feature because I haven’t used your app yet. I’ll let you know when I have time with it.
