if a gopro is still, does it only record for a set amount of time and if so, how do you change it.

im trying to film my workouts when my gopro hero 5 is on a tripiod however, im only getting around 15/18 mins of filming. is this because it is still and not moving?

no, it should record unitl either the battery is flat, memory card full or you stop recording. They don't have any sort of motion detection build in

 

the video files do "chapter", so once the video is 4gb in size it'll create another file & carry on. These do join together seamlessly, are you sure that isn't whats happening

Thank you.

 

I've downloaded the GoPro apps (Quick, Fusion and VR Player) to my home computer, so if i upload my viedows in chapers on there, i'll be able to join them together?

personally i use GoPro studio, its been dropped but can you the file for it if your interested. You'll use the Quik app, but yes if you just put them the timeline they will join together as 1 long video
