Re: Can not open movie from GoPro hero 5 sd card in my tablet

Hello @ispoons. Could it be that the tablet does not support the format type of the GoPro video?  Were you getting any error message? Which OS is your tablet running on? If you are using the GoPro app on your tablet, make sure that you have the latest version and that the video is downloaded to the App or your device prior to viewing them 

 

Also, check whether the videos on the SD card can be viewed using other programs, such as those described here . Let us know what you find out.

I did at one time take the SD card from my hero 5 and put it in my 7.1 Android table and it showed videos,now the message says no Chromecast,check lan do you have any programs to fix this problem

Re: Can not open movie from GoPro hero 5 sd card in my tablet

Which device were you using when you got the Chromecast message? This odd because the error message is not related to GoPro or its applications. If you haven't done it yet, try installing the GoPro app on your tablet, then pair the tablet with the camera to import the files. Let us know how it goes. Thanks!
