I need to control a GoPro Hero 3+ Black from my Windows Vista. I tried WiGo by CamDo but it keeps losing connection to the camera.

Are there alternatives to controlling a GoPro from a PC?

  • As already pointed out, and here some additional hints: what do you want to control, what tasks to perform? What are you willing to invest (price of the product/license/subscription)? The better you describe your needs, the better answers can fit them :)

This is the best solution I've found. The GoPro acts as a server. Thus, you can use curl from the command line to call different URLs to make the camera do different things.


You could try BlueStacks which is a easy-to-use Android simulator for Windows.
Install the GoPro app from Google Play on the system a computer with Wi-Fi, and see if you can connect.
Android 4.4.4 seems like the latest official version, download here. I've used it myself for other purposes.
