So i just bought a hero 7 black, thought id do some test footage in 4k 60fps.
Plays back fine on the go pro, as soon as i copy it on to the PC none of the editing software, Resolve,Hitman etc will recognise the file, If i use VLC it just pauses and then resumes ever 4 seconds or so and then pauses etc.
Now i know its to do with the codec but i dont understand I downloaded it and i am running win 10. I have a decent pc, its a 4 year old alienware.
Can someone please help me, the whole point is recording and using 4k @ 60fps. I dont want to go down the converstion route and lose quality.

Just a little update.
So it appears to play in Divx but not vlc etc and the biggest problem is none of theediting software i currently have work either, they do not detect the file.
Can anyone recommend a editing program that would, im a beginner so dont want something too complicated.
Power director have a monthly payment which i could use to try out if it would work that is?

Devinci Resolve is free and can be used for editing. You can also buy the HEVC codec from Microsoft for .99 cents.
Or if you prefer, use a free program like Handbrake to convert the file into something your PC recognizes.

Thanks I did buy the codec it still didnt work, i can get it to work in divix player but for example VLC it wont work and even resolve or hitman express do not pick up that file, they deem it as invalid.
Should i just spend that extra time then in converting it to 264 and then editing it ?
Will i loss quality though by using handbrake

I am using SONY Vegas 14Pro. Yesterday I edited 4k/60fps 11-minutes video. Render time over 6 hours ;) 50Mbit. Uploaded on YT:
I use CUDA on my 1060 and 6 cores/12threads processor with NVME SSD and 16GB of RAM but quality of GP7HB is OUTSTANDING.....
Anyway - what PC do you have, maybe is to slow to play HEVC 4k files....it is really demanding stuff.

I have a 980 TI graphics card.
Cpu is a i7 5820k Haswell-E/EP
I think using HEVC directly is out of the window? Im not sure if my tech is up to date enough.
I will have to go down the converstaion route, perhaps convert it to h264 and then edit and render but its a shame because the quality goes to crap.
Quite annoyed tbh.
Any kind of ideas or help would be great.

I didnt convert files, I just drag and drop to the time-line. Most of the time I record 2,7K instead of 4k. 4k needs more time to deal with it;) if you want something important in the highest quality - yes 4k. Here are my example settings for render:
