Downloading the content of your GoPro from its WiFi

During my last vacation I had some troubles making my GoPro visible to Ubuntu through the USB charger so I decided to go for a different approach.

Turns out that the camera itself exposes an HTTP server, which lists the contents of the camera, at 10.5.5.9:8080, so after turning on the WiFi hotspot on the camera and connecting my laptop to it I just needed to:

1
wget -r http://10.5.5.9:8080/

Thanks to Lucio for suggesting the -r!
