USB Camera support such as GoPro


#1

Hello,

I’m new on this forum but I have been using CoreELEC since this summer and it’s great!
Many many thanks to the devs and the community!

I was wondering if there were any plans to have support for direct access to camera content such as a GoPro.
It could be handy to watch the recorded media directly on the TV without having to transfer to a USB key or a NAS.

I tried to understand why it was not being recognised as an external drive and here is what I found:

It seems like mptfs might need updating and fuse the rules to mount the device. ExFat is the FS used on the SD.

I think it would be very handy to have this capability.
Anyone else interested?

Thanks,
Matt
