GoPro 7 Black videos won't play on my Smart TV using USB 3 connection

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have recently bought a GoPro 7, and I have been playing with the video features. I have tried then to connect the GoPro 7 to the Smart TV using the USB 3 to watch the videos, but the videos are not even recognized by the TV (they are not shown). Pictures on the other hand can be seen on the TV.  

 

I have tried to record 1080 and 4K videos, but any of those are recognized. The Smart TV is a Sony Bravia.  I have updated the GoPro 7 to the last update available (september 2018)

 

Have anybody encountered this problem?

 

Thank you

Hello @alvarushajab

 

At this time, the only way to display GoPro media to an external display is to an HDTV with the use of a microHDMI cable. You can playback you GoPro media on your smart TV through an SD card adapter, or a USB card reader that is compatible with the TV. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
