HERO 9 recording Format h.264 + hevc

I've just got a Hero 9 and imported my first video to my PC it wont play back the file and neither will my iPhone 7.

I've set the record setting to h.264+HEVC and would have thought it would be compatible..

This is going to be a big problem for me!!!

 

I'm using Davinci Resolve 16 and I have an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU - Where do I get the Codec support?


HELP!

There was thread here on this forum. (I don't see a search available) Users went to Windows Store to purchase and install the HEVC codec.

It is a problem, gopro wont let you choose the codec. Some combianations of resolution and frame rate trigger HEVC instead of h.264. For example 1080/24 uses HEVC while 1080/25/30 use h.264. Oddly designed.

 

Here you can get the microsoft codec for windows 10 for free: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/hevc-video-extensions-from-device-manufacturer/9n4wgh0z6vhq
