Livestream App Now Streams Live Footage Straight from your GoPro

Livestream app streams footage from GoPro Hero4 live on the internet

The new Livestream iOS app lets you stream video from GoPro HERO cameras live via your iPhone’s 4G cellular data connection, sending the action straight to your friends via a shared link. They’ve also updated the app to let you lock the screen during use, so you can set it streaming then tuck your phone safely inside your pack or pocket.

You’ll need one of the GoPro HERO3 or HERO4 with built in WiFi (or, presumably, the WiFi bacpac for the older models) to connect your phone to the camera’s network, then select the GoPro from the Livestream App’s menu to let it see what your camera’s seeing. Once there, just tell it to go live and anyone with the link you’ve shared can watch your action in real time.

The app will even allow two-way chatting while broadcasting, the ability to post snapshots to the feed and live video filters. As long as you’ve got 4G or LTE signal strength, you should be good to go. Check video of it in action below…

Randy Orton RKOs the Internet – and Kelly McGarry

You can thank the internet for a lot of things. Videos of cats, Reddit¬† AMAs, YouTube sensations, and apparently the newest obsession – Randy Orton RKO pictures, Vines, and Videos. Seeing as how many cyclists also love the internet [guilty], it’s not surprising that we have what may be the first RKO mountain bike video brought to us by Chain Reaction Cycles.¬† Now Kelly McGarry’s crash makes a lot more sense…

Check out the original video by Blaize Potts after the break…

PDW Lars Rover: Into the Night

Portland Design Works lars rover 650 450 barkeep blaq (2)

As far as we were concerned, the new PDW Lars Rover lights had already blasted off after seeing them at Interbike. In what has become tradition for Portland Design Works however, the new product isn’t really launched until there is an entertaining video featuring the new goods. At 650 lumens for the more powerful version, the Lars Rover has more than enough power for most nocturnal shenanigans.

Seriously, night riding is awesome when you have a good light. Power up with the Lars Rover next…

Photo Gallery: 2014 RedBull DreamLine Competition at the Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch

Red Bull Dream line dirt jump BMX oskar blues reeb ranch 2014 (321)

Before spotting anything else while rolling up to the Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch, your eyes were immediately drawn to the the massive mounds of red North Carolina dirt. Probably visible from the planes above, the massive jumps were to be the home of the latest edition of the Redbull Dreamline BMX competition.

Set on the grounds of the Reeb Ranch in Hendersonville, NC, the venue would serve as a host to the best BMX dirt jumpers in the world to compete on the perfect line – the Dreamline. At first it appeared the weather would derail the fun, the crowd and riders stuck it out through a two hour rain delay to put on a great show.

Get the highlights next…

Hands On with the New Sony Action Cam Mini – It’s all in the Wrist

Sony Action Cam Mini camera  (12)

Let’s be real for a moment. You can have the most feature packed action camera around, but if it isn’t easy to use you’ll end up with a bunch of boring footage that’s probably either of the ground or the sky. The introduction of the smart phone app and wireless capabilities was a huge step forward in terms of being able to properly capture the actual action, but they still leave things to be desired – connecting can be troublesome, and you still have to do something with your smartphone once you start riding. To keep you from having to constantly dig into your bag to fish out your phone, many cameras are paired with wrist or handlebar mounted remotes that allows you to control the recording.

Even so, wouldn’t it be more convenient if the same functions were available in a single wrist mounted remote?

That seems to be what Sony is thinking and is exactly what they offer with the new Action Cam Mini AZ1. In addition to the live view remote, the camera is 30% smaller than the original AS20 and the replacement AS100V. The smaller size means you can stick it just about anywhere to create some creative videos while simultaneously controlling it from your wrist. Sony brought us out to Northern New Jersey for a crash course in the new camera which included mountain bikes, mountain coasters, and even archery.

After just a day playing with the Action Cam Mini, we can’t help but think GoPro has some serious competition…

Kenda Dark Mountain Collective Teases New Video Series w/ Porter, McGarry, Tschugg & More!

Kenda’s Dark Mountain Collective is their group of pro factory riders that test new treads, rubber compounds and casings to make the brand’s tires better. The marketing around the group thus far has been somewhat low key, but now they’re set to release a video series showing the exploits of Eric Porter, Kelly McGarry, Carson Storch, Tibor Simai, Guido Tschugg, and Andrea Bruno. The videos were shot over 10 days at Selle Nevea (Italy), Saalbach-Hinterglemm (Austria), and Bovec (Slovenia) in July.

Must Watch: Danny Macaskill – The Ridge

Danny Mac

The latest riding masterpiece from Danny Macaskill is out. Even though we’ve grown to expect crazy stunts, army tanks, sculpted jumps, and even Playboy Bunnies, the newest video from Danny is au naturel. After making his way back home to the Isle of Skye, Danny jumps on a mountain bike instead of his trusty trial rig and tackles a crazy line though the Cuillin Ridgline. Fortunately for us, Cut Media was there to document it, and the result is a winner. Watch the video next.
