Gopro playback skips and jumps forward

Hey my gopro isn't properly playing back the footage i just recorded. It skips when I play the videos back on my camera and on the app. Ive tried clearing memory and recording shorter videos and that doesn't seem to work. Any way you could advise me?

Re: Gopro playback skips and jumps forward

Hello @epicwave34738

 

If you are experiencing choppy or broken up, or skipping playback when viewing your videos, this will usually come down to the playback device not being able to process the data of the large HD video files fast enough.

Mobile Devices: https://gopro.com/help/articles/solutions_troubleshooting/Choppy-Video-Playback-on-Mobile-Devices

 

If the playback is also skipping when played on the camera, make sure that your camera is updated to the latest firmware and that you are using the recommended SD card for your camera model. You can check on the list here: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations

 

Thanks,
