Can I regenerate .lrv files if they were mistakenly removed

Hello,

 

I saw that the .lrv files are necessary for the mobile app playback of videos. 

If the .lrv files were deleted, can we re-generate in order to watch the videos on the mobile app?

 

Currently I have to download the videos and a pop up warns me that they still might not be supported on my phone.

 

Can someone assist with this?

 

Cheers!

Unfortunately, the LVR files are made by the camera while recording. You could try making a copy of your mp4 files and then renaming them .lvr

Hi @mrwhitegoespro

 

 

When lrv files are lost, you wont be able to play the files via the GoPro app while the camera is paired.

Downloading the files to your phone will be the next option.

 

 

Thanks!
