gopro hero 5 copying video files directly to PC via usb

[ Edited ]

Is there an issue with copying the gopro video files from the camera directly to a PC when connected via USB (not using Quik or SD card copy)?  When I tried this, the video performance on the PC or Mac goes from normal speed at the start, slows down during the majority of the video, then returns to normal at the end.  Might this have to do with the codec compression used with the gopro files?  Is there a way to modify the files that were copied to the PC-Mac to run normally from start to finish? 

 

Thanks for the help!

Never experienced such a problem. Can you test the same video, copying it via USB to the Mac and then copying it by using uSD card reader.

If the result is different files will be corrupted during USB copy most likely

I'd love to test it, however I left the gopro in Senegal with my daughter and just have the copied files to work with now.  Thanks.
