why is a 2 min clip only 20 seconds when going to edit?

i recorded several videos today, really happy with all but the last.

i dont know if i accidentally pressed buttons, it was on a chest mount all day.

last clip is 20 seconds, but in reality is about 2 minutes, so clip is sped up about 5 times ?

there is no audio, file size is 170mb approx, playing back on gopro gives no option to slow motion, all other clips do (all filmed at 1400 4:3).

 

i want to know what i accidentally pressed / what went wrong / if i can get the file audio (doubt it, did i time lapse it? can you show what each file is encoded with on the gopro? this is my second time out with this new gopro, still learning, all help appreciated.

 

thanks

Hi @cooldusk86747

 

Are you able to share the file? You may do it via YouTube or Dropbox link.

If the file does not have a sound, then there is a possibility that it was a time lapse recording.

Do you remember if this was recorded via QuikCapture (camera is turned off then shutter button was pressed)?

 

When the camera is off and QuikCapture is enabled, you can turn the camera on and immediately begin capturing video or Time Lapse photos just by pressing theShutter/Select button. Press once for video, press and hold for a few seconds for Time Lapse photos. Press again to stop recording and power off the camera.

 

Thanks!
