Happiest day coming up, selling my Gopro 7 Black

Tonight is the finale. I recorded a 7 minute video . I usually use a GH5 runnin at full 4k and Gopro was supposed to make life easier.

 

I recorded another irreplaceable clip only to have it practically destroy final cut in editing, skipping frames. Yet I can go to any GH5 footage all plkays smooth. The system starts to play and then gets bogged down with the Gopro

 

Not sure what the gopro does to make it unmanageable. I have wasted 2 hours dealing with this will finish the project and this will be the end of thegopro for me.

 

Mid winrer the stabilizatuion shook so badly while the camera was on a tripod that I lost the footage it was recording. No explanation for why it would do that, shaking like it had a seizure.

 

Now this. I have no idea why this camera is thsi terrible but I can't record video with it. What a dissapoinrtment. 

 

I would record a Youtube video explaining how much I hate this camera but the Hero 7 would probablt clip it until the audio was uniltelligible.

 

Just remember before you blame my system that EVERY bit of GH5 footage some hundreds of gig plays perfect.

Re: Happiest day coming up, selling my Gopro 7 Black

Hey, not sure what specs etc but did you record in HEVC? Seems some hardware can't play that back well. Try using handbrake.fr to re-encode the file to see if that helps. Sry,. work around at best.
