It's been a few years since I've done it.

The link bashy provided is correct, at least in the general concept, but if you're not familiar with VLC it might look cryptic.

You should probably check out youtube for tutorials on how to stream video from your GoPro using VLC.  I just checked and there seem to be many out there.  (I searched youtube with "VLC stream gopro").

Greetings,

What everybody is describing is a method of doing what GoPro's basically do not want you to do... 
You are trying to grab the cache of of the live feed before GoPro kills it off.
Apples and PC's place the data in slightly different areas but the concept is the same.
The reason it is so convoluted is for some reason GoPro does not want their cameras used in stationary live mode.
Maybe some of their later camera's allow this but at least mine and older ones do not so we had to come up with these crazy workarounds...
