gopro 10 as webcam - problem with virtual camera

GoPro 10 with latest firmware
OBS Version: 29.0.2

OS: Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon
Linux Kernel: 5.4.0-139-generic

GoPro 10 is working perfect as a webcam.
No problem with live stream to youtube.
No problem with recording to local media.

When I try to start Virtual Camera the output video of the gopro is distorted with flickering gray colors. You can't even see me on the screenshot because it gets so distorted. And sometimes OBS crashes. I check the logs and I see no errors. See attached screenshot and log file.

If I use my built-in webcam and I disable gopro in OBS, Virtual Camera works fine. So there must be some kind of compatibility issue is using gopro.

Any suggestion?
