GoPro Hero 10 WebCam on Windows 11

Having recently changed to a GoPro Hero 10, I was disappointed to find that the GoPro WebCam application doesn’t work on Windows 11. This is a driver problem that GoPro has yet to fix. Fortunately, there’s a quick fix that will get the camera working again. Here are the steps to take:

  1. Make sure the GoPro WebCam app is running on your PC. It should be visible in the task panel.
  2. Power up and connect your Hero 10 using a USB cable; the GoPro should display USB connected.
  3. Open Device Manager – Network adapters and you should see the GoPro listed as GoPro UsbNcm Host Device with an exclamation mark. The exclamation mark indicates a driver problem.
  4. Right-click on the GoPro entry and choose “Update Drivers” – “Browse my computer for drivers”
  5. In the next window choose “Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer”
  6. You will probably see two drivers, the GoPro and a generic driver called “UsbNcm Host Device”.
  7. Choose the generic device and click Next
  8. That will update the driver.
  9. Exit and restart the GoPro WebCam application and your camera should be working again.
