Hero 8 Black Video freezes but audio continues

[ New ]
Hi all,

Recorded videos yesterday on my GoPro 8 Black and the video file freezes half way through, but the audio continues. This happened on all videos I took! Is there anyway to recover this? I’ve got an approved SD card and haven’t seen this happen before.

Hi @epicgorge4271

 

What SD card are you using?

Do you have the camera up to date?

See if switching the low light option off will make a difference.

 

Thanks!

Same issue.  Video records for a while 4K 60fps and eventually video freezes while the audio continues (losing incredible footage). Happens more quickly on subsequent videos.  Low light not turned on.  Tried Sandisk Extreme Pro 64 and 128 cards, reformated cards, lastest updates... Same issue.

I found out that I had an update to complete! I use same SD Card as you. The videos that froze with me were those with more action e.g down hill track on a mountain bike. I recorded a drive in the car. Around 15mins after I completed the update and it hasn’t froze. However, haven’t got amazing confidence it won’t happen again.

If you find a fix, let me know! It’s a strange one.
