Hi @natis50643

 

Normally it happens if your phone is not compatible with the video format of the camera. 

 

Such as timelapse and HEVC files.

You can use a computer though to access the files.

Hello @natis50643

 

Would you be able to determine if the error message comes up for particular resolution settings used? Do the videos play on the camera or on other devices (a computer, for example)? Are you able to import the videos through Quik for desktop? Hope to hear back from you. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Yes all the resolutions for the videos are the same, yes the videos play at the camera and even in preview

Glad to hear back from you, @natis50643 . Did you mean all the videos encountering the error message are of the same resolution? Which one is that? Thanks!
