GoPro 8 Skipping Frames?

Anyone having an issue with playback where it looks like it's skipping frames or it's choppy?

 

Running 1080/60 Superview with Hypersmooth on. SD Card is good SanDisk Extreme 128gb, Computer is good not peaking GPU or CPU when playback just seems like it's buffering or skipping frames.

Re: GoPro 8 Skipping Frames?

Hello @photogromer. How are you playing back your GoPro media? Are you using any particular media player? Do all the videos show the same behavior? Is this seen only in 1080/60 videos? 

 

The links below provide tips to fix depending on the device that you are using. See if any of the suggestions will help:

Let us know how it goes. Thanks!

I am having the same issue, it is a recording problem. The playback is choppy on the gopro, on the app through the cloud, after I download to my laptop, through vlc player. It is having a problem, intermittently. I recorded mine in 4k,30, hypersmooth, superview. Getting ready to start a warranty ticket. And post this to youtube.

Thank you for the details that you provided, @xdrockx. Yes, it would be best to get in touch with Support if the recommended steps above do not work. Are you also using the same SD card? A sample clip showing the issue will help the team better understand what's going on. If alright, please update this thread with the outcome of your interaction with Support. It will be a great help for others who may be observing the same. Many thanks! (Support contact information is at https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs )

What sort of video do you record? GoPro in a mount? When you disable hypersmooth 2.0 has the video the same issues/problems?

I recognize in my videos somthing similar  when using a mount that bounce or shake a little, this overwhelmed hypersmooth in my opinion. Here some example footages.

Auf einigen meiner Videos mit der Hero 8 Black zeigt sich ein sehr störendes Verhalten. Beispiele hier sind 1080p/50Hz aufgenommen mit den unterschiedlichen HS 2.0 Modi. Eine Vermutung, woran dieses "Zucken" liegt, habe ich auch. 0:51 Vergleich der HS 2.0 Modi über Kopfsteinpflaster mit "Zucken" ...

Thanks, thats looks different. Horrible for the eyes. Looks not normal to me. Hope you get it fixed or replaced.
