Streaming tweaks:

Stream BitRate :

Supports any number ( like 7000000), but limited by wifi throughput, packet loss and video glitches may appear. Correct parameter ID is 62!

Stream Window Size:

Sizes with 720 height are tested on Hero 5 Black.

Media Commands:

Delete file:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/storage/delete?p=file (eg. /100GOPRO/G0010124.JPG)

Delete Last media taken:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/storage/delete/last

Reformat SD Card (CAUTION!):

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/storage/delete/all

Tag moment in video file:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/storage/tag_moment/playback?p=XXXGOPRO/XXXXXX.MP4&tag=Miliseconds

XXXGOPRO is the folder, XXXXXX.MP4 is the video and Miliseconds are the miliseconds offset from the start of the video.

For example:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/storage/tag_moment/playback?p=103GOPRO/GOPR1359.MP4&tag=2000

will make a HiLight Tag on 2 seconds of the video GOPR1359.MP4

Extracting a clip from a video (GoPro Clips): (Works on HERO4)

To start a video conversion:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/transcode/request?source=DCIM/[XXXGOPRO]/GOPRXXXX.MP4&res=VIDEO_RESOLUTION&fps_divisor=FPS&in_ms=In_MS&out_ms=Out_MS

Parameters:

  • VIDEO_RESOLUTION:
    • 1080 = 0
    • 960 = 1
    • 720 = 2
    • WVGA = 3
    • 640p = 4
    • 432x240 (live preview resolution) = 5
    • 320x240 = 6
  • FPS: (Divide FPS by)
    • 1/1 = 0 (Leave it as is)
    • 1/2 = 1
    • 1/3 = 2
    • 1/4 = 3
    • 1/8 = 4

Output:

{"status":{"id":STATUS_ID,"source":"DCIM\XXXGOPRO\GOPRXXXX.MP4","status":0,"failure_reason":0,"estimate":1,"completion":0,"output":""}}

If you did it right.

status values:

  • 0 = Started
  • 1 = In Progress
  • 2 = Finished
  • 3 = Cancelled
  • 4 = Conversion failed

failure_reason values:

  • 0 = No fail
  • 1 = Bad file
  • 2 = Bad parameters
  • 3 = No space left on the device
  • 4 = Camera is busy converting something else

To get the status of a conversion:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/transcode/status?id=STATUS_ID (from the previous command)

Output:

{"status":{"id":STATUS_ID,"source":"DCIM\XXXGOPRO\GOPRXXXX.MP4","status":2,"failure_reason":0,"estimate":1,"completion":0,"output":"DCIM/XXXGOPRO/GOPRXXXX.MP4"}}

You can now download the output url, add http://10.5.5.9/videos/ to it.

To cancel a conversion:

http://10.5.5.9/gp/gpControl/command/transcode/cancel?id=STATUS_ID
