Remove GoPro Webcam App + Plugin

A while ago I installed the GoPro Webcam App, only to find out my GoPro is too old to work with it. Although I had removed the GoPro Webcam Application itself from /Applications, the GoPro Webcam would still be shown in a list of choices.

To remove the GoPro Webcam from that list, you need to remove the file /Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-ins/DAL/GoProWebcam.plugin

In Finder, use SHIFT+CMD+G to navigate to /Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-ins/DAL/ and then remove the file GoProWebcam.plugin

☝️ If you have other Virtual Cameras installed, you’ll also find them in that folder.

Alternatively, run this in Terminal:

sudo rm /Library/CoreMediaIO/Plug-ins/DAL/GoProWebcam.plugin

(Yes, sudo is required here)

Once the file is removed removed you’ll need to restart the affected applications, as they had already loaded that plugin into memory.

Thank me with a coffee.

I don't do this for profit but a small one-time donation would surely put a smile on my face. Thanks!
