How to playback continuously on computer iMac?

I have a Hero 8 Black.

I understand that it records in chapters.

I know that I can play back continuously on the GoPro camera.

I'd like to know if it's possible to play one continuous video as I recorded, on my desktop iMac without third party software.

Can GoPro Player do this?

Can QuickTime, QuickTime Pro or iMovie do this?

Just simply want to playback as I recorded over an hour of video.

Thanks!

Hello, @peppydawn4761. The GoPro Player is for MAX media. In order for the video to play continuously, its chapters must be combined first using a third-party editing tool such as those that you mentioned.

Thanks. I wish there was a way to playback on my desktop iMac without having to take additional action. GoPro. Maybe you can consider this as a future function. After a day long bike ride, I'd like to be able to read the microSD card on my desktop and view the video. That's all.

@peppydawn4761. You might want to explore GoPro Labs. It has QR-coded features among which is the ability to record with larger chapters (up to 12 GB as compared to the current 4B). Follow this link should you want to check it out.
