No, it's not possible because the WiFi-Connection is not perfomant enaugh for 4K.
To Go4-App it's only a preview-stream.

Sorry i want to make sure i understand. Are you saying i cant stream? I want to stream the visual on the phone? Stream what i see on the phone is what I would like to do?

Were you thinking i want to stream only the camera from the drone without all the telemetry?

Thanks
That is still through the remote, what you see using a phone or tablet is just your visual screen for the remote.

NO NO NO, you can stream through the Go4 app, you are not able to stream at 4k

As for the backdoor bypass, is that for streaming to the public (need 1000 subs) or any streaming privately included?

The only way to get 4K drone video to stream is to get the 4K video from the SD card, and upload it to a web site that can supply 4K streams (youtube, VIMEO). The direct streams from the drone down are only 720 generally, sometimes 1080, limited by the quality of the drone download link

Excellent thanks so technically it will not live stream in 4k but i can simply upload the video after the fact non streaming to youtube in 4k.
Unless we find a way to live stream from an sd card instead. If even possible. Probably not tho.

Any kind of streaming requires a streaming server someplace. YouTube and VIMEO are both streaming servers. You can set your home computer as a server as well, with PLEX which is a free streaming server as well. Note that all the streaming servers require the viewer to connect with the server, and request the streaming video be played.

Another important note is that both VIMEO and YouTube reencode your work, so they are not suitable for making critical quality decisions.
