Gopro footage recorded on class 10 SD card

My mac is running OS X El Capitan, Processor: 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Memory: 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3.

Re: Cannot playback HD video - skips, freezes, extremely choppy

Hi @grandmesa73334

 

Are you still running into this? It's a bit older of a computer, so that might have something to do with it. If you upload the video to YouTube and play it back there, is it still choppy? Also, what media player are you using to play the footage when you see it showing up choppy like that?
