Twitter-owned Periscope has announced today you can now live stream from your GoPro directly to the social network via the company’s iPhone app (which was updated today).
Below are instructions provided on how to set this up on your GoPro HERO 4:
Here’s how it works:
1. Connect to your GoPro’s WiFi, making sure it’s on video mode.
2. Open Periscope on your iPhone & tap the broadcast button.
3. The GoPro button will automatically be highlighted?—?so give your broadcast a title and go live.
In order to switch between your GoPro and iPhone cameras once you’re live, you can double-tap the iOS app to switch between cameras. There’s also a button that will lock your iPhone’s screen, so no accidental button presses will occur once your phone is in your pocket.
Tony Bates, President of GoPro, said “GoPro enables people to capture and share their experiences in the most immersive way possible, and the integration with Periscope provides GoPro users with a great, real-time platform to share their content.”
Periscope rival Meerkat launched live streaming from GoPro cameras last July, so many expected it would debut soon as well for Periscope users. Let us know if you’re going to try this!
