PHP tool for controlling a GoPro camera

goprophp.php can be run from the command line goproinc.php can be included into other PHP projects (command line or web)

At present the settings are configured for the GoPro Hero3+ and might give unexpected results for other models. Please report such behaviours to the authors to improve future releases.


Create a new object of the GoPro class:

$gopro = new GoPro('password'); //Use your GoPro's WiFi password

The above should work for almost all use cases. You may also use the more advanced constructor:

$gopro = new GoPro('password', 'Hero3+', 'ip address', 'port number');

You can then access functionality of the GoPro using:
