CHOPPY PLAYBACK ON LAST FEW VIDEOS

[ Edited ]

Hi!

 

I am using a GoPro Hero 7 black, Sandisk extreme microsd xc-1 v30 U3 A2.

 

70% of my videos are playing just fine in my macbook using a new version of VLC. However, the last few videos I have recorded were choppy to almost no movement at all when played. What could be the reason? And is there any way I can restore the videos? :(

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi @agilecliff07886

 

What were the video settings used?

Are you getting the same when videos are played back on the camera?

 

Please go over the steps on: How to Correct Choppy or Broken Up Playback

Let us know how it goes.

 

 

Thanks!

I just tried playing the videos on the camera, and it seems to play smoothly....

Thanks for getting back to us. @agilecliff07886

It is possible that the issue is already with the specific files.

 

Would you mind sharing a sample file so we can assess further?

 

Regards,

Re: CHOPPY PLAYBACK ON LAST FEW VIDEOS

Are you moving all of the files over to the computer prior to trying to play them? If not, your issue is most likely just due to the transfer speed and memory load of playing the files from the microSD is the root of your issue.
