Why my GoPro Max footage looks bad (has weird artifacts - something is wrong with the lenses?)

[ New ]
My GoPro Max footage has some weird shadows. It looks like the videos from both lenses aren't merged correctly.

Please take a look: https://youtu.be/uQexxWcmdOE

If you download your footage on the Samsung S20 and then upload it to youtube, then it's an edit.  There's an ongoing issue with the graphics chipset that the Samsung S20 uses and it causes these glitches.

Are you editing using a Samsung S20?

I'm downloading my footage on my Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (I don't edit it though).
