why can I not watch the video on my desktop but I can on my phone?????

I connect my Hero 5 session to my gopro app on my andriod and i can watch the videos.  On my desk top i can view only the first one. I have tried real player, the software from gopro and VLC  all do the same thing????

Re: why can I not watch the video on my desktop but I can on my phone?????

I need more information please, have you transferred all the clips to the pc or are you playing them from the GoPro or SD card?

 

Do you have an error msg,? Do you have audio but no video?

 

please fill in the gaps.

Re: why can I not watch the video on my desktop but I can on my phone?????

I have the same problem.  I can connect and view videos on my iPhone but when I try to connect my Session 5 to my PC I can't see any of the videos on the Capture app.  I've tried connecting with the Wifi just like I do with my phone.  I've also connected it with the cable provided.  nothing.  I can't even see the files in the Windows Explorer view from my pc when it's connected.  I think that is the problem.  Go Pro was so worried that we'd use some other app to view the photos that they messed it all up.  Just my theory.  Please help if you can.

 

Cheers,

Re: why can I not watch the video on my desktop but I can on my phone?????

I can get the videos on to my computer,  I just needed to remove the sd card and install it into my computer and then download them.  kinda of a pain but manageable.  I do not know why it will not work through the camera.
