hi,

 

here we go:

https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/What-are-thm-and-lrv-files

 

basically, the LRV files are Low Resolution Video files.

GoPro always records all these files

- a mp4 file, full quality

- a .lrv file - this is played by you mobile phone GoPro App when you preview directly the files over WiFi.

(due to limited bandwidth on WiFi, these files have low quality, just to be fit for streamimg over wifi)

- a thm file, that shows the thumbnail jpg in the preview for that particular video

 

I do not need those .lrv and .thm files on PC.

 

(just for curiosity you can try to play a .lrv file in a video player...to see what is about...)

 

only download the mp4 files (and jpg photos) you made...

 

hope this helps,

robert

Re: LRV and THM files

Hi that’s leafed the formatting up. But is there any way to view these files?

Re: LRV and THM files

as I said you can open the .LRV files in a windows video player....
