Hero 8 Video Download

[ New ]

I have an 18 minute video that I can view in it's entirety on the camera. However, when I downloaded it to my computer, it was broken up into 3 separate videos with the first 5 minutes missing. Anyone know why this happened, and what the solution is? Thanks.

Hello @edwardw6670. The video may have been chaptered due to its size. This is automatically done in the camera when certain file size is reached. Using the file naming convention information, see if you can locate the missing file.

Thank you.

 

What software is used to put the files back together after the download?

Hi @edwardw6670

 

You would need to stitch the files using a third party application.

You may use the applications listed on Programs to View and Edit Videos

 

Thanks!

Ok, I've got Quik and VLC on my computer, but I don't see how to stitch the files together. Can someone point me where to find those instructions. Thanks.

Typically, you just drag the different videos onto the timeline in the order that you want them in and the editor butts them together. For VSDC, there's a tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3L_bRVMpBc that may help.
