Re: GoPro max samsung galaxy s20 issues

What I dont get is, when I play 360 footage via gopro cloud on my s20, it is amazing. After downloading the 360 to my phone and watch the same video, its terrible. Somethings not right.

Not being rude but its funny when someone puts up a remark telling others not to buy the gopro max in the support forum.

I didn't buy it. Luckily I read the forum BEFORE purchasing. Smiley Wink

Re: GoPro max samsung galaxy s20 issues

When you play the file from the cloud, you're playing a streaming file that's using a different bunch of decoders and protocols.  When you play the file from your phone, you're playing the original file that's using a different processing engine to deal with the encoding.  

 

Since the S20 is pretty much a brand new phone, GoPro are playing catchup with trying to fix the bugs associated with the graphics driver.  There's also only so much they can do, especially if it's an issue on the Samsung side of things.  Maybe companies don't like competition especially since the failure of their ability to launch their own 360 camera.

I have the same problem, galaxy s20+ (exynos).
Is there any update or acknowledgement of the issue? I kinda liked the Max so far...

Yeah buddy, they've acknowledged it. As per my post on the previous page though, they're not actively working on it - it's got no set timeframe to be fixed. I left the beta group and gave up hope, really.

Re: GoPro max samsung galaxy s20 issues

It looks like only the exynos variant is affected. Maybe some issue with the GPU driver or sth.
