how to play hevc vids onto a pc straight from the sd card

ok so im going to ask this question can i play a video from the gopro 7 camera 4k 60 fps hevc
and watch it on a i7 8700k /i7 9700k /9900k

all i want to do is watch it straight from the gopro7 download that file onto a pc and watch it i have a fx 8150 and it wont play properly without looking like its playing in slow motion with sound skipping and syncing in

what amd/ intel pc's do you have that can go straight from the camera onto the pc in hevc with no editing or alterations and watch it in 4k and it plays and sounds great

Check this page from GoPro. Might help you out. You should be able to play the videos. If it's studdering, it's either your computer or the software or applications you're using.

I would then talk with some sort of support team. Either GoPro (call or message) or Bestbuy or any other stores that deals with electronics. Given that you've exhausted all options, we'll just have to let the experts hopefully to do their jobs
