Is Gopro4 Session supported?

Post by yb0676 »

I broke the mic of my Sony AZ1 action cam, then Sony service centre messed the wifi hotspot when fixing the mic. I am afraid it will be a long time till they totally fix it.

Can i overlay the video directly from the Gopro4 Session? If so, it would be a good substitute.

Waiting for your reply, thank you.

I have no official information from GoPro on this and no access to a session either. You can overlay footage recorded manual, that's for sure.

I just bought the session and am in the program now trying to figure out how to use it all.....

It does not appear in the sensor list so I am guessing that means it will not work at the moment Harry ?

In settings I chose the Hero4 and set my camera password, beyond that I have not got any further yet, as I have been waiting to get a Hero before using this app properly, despite purchasing it many moons ago :D

Hoping to use this in my race car next season, so fingers tightly crossed it all shakes out.

Cheers

Mark.

Hi Mark,

As written above, you will at least be able to record GoPro footage manually and add it to laps manually too. Details are available in Video Documentation on www.gps-laptimer.de/documentation.

For full Session support, please watch future LapTimer release notes.

Am I to assume there is no further additional support for this program with regards to adding compatibility for newer Go-Pro models Harry ? or is this a WIP thing ?

Please rephrase your question, I do not understand it :-)

WIP = Work in Progress

Or at least that's what I think it means. That is you are, or are planning to, add support.

Yes, as soon as GoPro supports the Session with their API, I will add support.
