Streaming with your GoPro

A step-by-step guide...

Step 1: Power on your camera

  • Power on your camera. Open the utility drawer by swiping from the top to the bottom of the touch display.
  • Swipe left and select "Connections" and then tap on "Connect Device."

Step 2: Download the app

  • Download the GoPro mobile app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
  • Open the app
  • Select the camera icon at the top right corner of the app and it will automatically begin scanning for your camera.

Step 3: Connect your camera

  • Press the blue "Connect" button.
  • If this button doesn't appear, double-check that your phone's bluetooth is on and that your GoPro is in pairing mode.

Step 4: Set up streaming

  • Swipe left on the row of buttons at the bottom of the screen to get to a button that reads "Set up live".

  • Press that button.

  • When prompted, select "RTMP" as your streaming destination. You may have to remove the default Facebook setting to do so.
  • When prompted, enter in your RTMP information provided by sidelineHD. You can find this information by going to the sidelineHD website --> "Streaming" tab --> Your GoPro camera --> "Camera info". We strongly recommend copy and pasting this text to ensure there are no typos.
  • Press "Set up Live Stream".

Step 5: Go LIVE

  • Press "Go Live" to start the stream. You should receive a text message shortly after doing so. If you do not receive the text, double check that all your RTMP information is accurate.
