How to Livestream Your GoPro Footage

Your extreme sports footage can now be broadcast live to your Twitter followers. Twitter and GoPro have teamed up to enable the livestreaming of your action-filled GoPro shots through Periscope, Twitter's live video network. It's a new feature called GoLIVE. Anyone with GoPro Hero4 Silver or Black cameras and an iPhone (there is no Android compatibility) will be able to transmit live video from their GoPros over the internet, whether they're shredding down a mountain or doing another share-worthy stunt.

It only takes three steps to get broadcasting: Connect your iPhone to your GoPro's WiFi network after ensuring it's in video mode. Start Periscope on your iPhone and tap the "broadcast" button. Then, give your broadcast a title and go live. Of course, your iPhone contains its own camera, so this new feature will enable you to switch the feed back and forth between the GoPro shot and the iPhone shot. The two cameras effectively become a small-scale live television studio. 

It also makes it easier to skip the technical and time-consuming step of editing recorded video into a tightly finished product; you simply share your exploits as they happen. Incidentally, GoPro is expected to release a camera-equipped drone later this year called Karma. In short, your Periscope viewers will thank you.
