Recording formats - why do I get 3 sets of recordings in diff formats?

[ New ]

After recording I find 3 versions of the same thing - an MP4 set, WAV set, and Windows Media set.  How can I set it to only record in one format so I can have more room on the ScanDisk to record for a longer period?

Hi @grandstar6756

 

 

You may turn Audio off. This option is found when Protune is turned on.

This will not keep a .WAV file for your recordings. 

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

I want to only record MP4 files as well.... if you have found a resolution please post! I would love to have that extra space because I use the goPro to record races and events that do not allow me to empty cards in between but charging is not a problem, I have a BUNCH of cards but it still isn't enough.

 

THANK YOU!

turn off  protune audio that will stop the .WAV file.   

 

I simply do not hook up separatly my sdxc card that brings up the LRV files  I will format he card and not useh tegopro app you may need to fool around to  get just gopro_***** files only.

 

Yi on the other hand you have no ooptio n at all to  not have thesecondary and thm files not load.

Will that turn off the audio on the mp4 files too though?

Hello @braveriver76126

 

Turning off the Protune will not affect or turn off the audio for the MP4 files. 

 

Best,

GoPro does not mute any videos at all, they only offered protune audio to  have high med low or off.
