Add BLE control for GoPro cameras

Post by rookie1 »

Hi,

Feature request for Harry's Laptimer Grand Prix Edition:
GoPro cameras have slowly been moving away from using Wifi for (most of) remote control commands.
Since the GoPro Hero 5 remote control commands via Bluetooth LE have been added and the latest Hero 9 doesn't even enable Wifi anymore if it doesn't receive a BLE command to do so (Wifi is only anymore used for streaming/media transfer/video preview).

Would be great to get the following commands to GoPro for Laptimer supported via BLE:
  • start/stop recording
  • enable wifi (for certain actions like media transfer)
A list of the necessary BLE commands is available here: https://github.com/KonradIT/goprowifiha ... chLinux.md
