Apologies. I missed the desktop mention. Rest assured, we are planning to add the same level of features for Windows as users with Mac currently get with the GoPro Player. Windows is a fragmented operating system that covers a myriad of home setups. These setups require video encoding and decoding support for spherical media that need to be tested across multiple devices. For this reason, we’re taking a little more time to get things ready to make sure it meets the expectation of our users.

 

Next week, we’ll release a new version of the app that features:

1) Support for HEVC and H.264 exports including 360 audio

2) An improved user interface

3) 360 Audio enhancements for videos with Horizon Leveling and World Lock

 

4) Several bug fixes and enhancementsWe would really appreciate it if you could test out the new update when it's released and update this thread so we know that the changes are working properly.

 

Thanks!

Any more updates on the Windows app. I bought the Max and it's completely useless without an app that would let me edit the footage (and before you ask, no I don't use overpriced crap from Apple but do have a top of the range windows and Android device)

Hello @shempl. Sorry, we do not have an update yet on the GoPro MAX Exporter for Windows in terms of the reframe features a la GoPro Player on Mac. The latest version for the Exporter, v1.9.4.0, was released last December 11.

I got a MAX for Christmas which I can't wait to start using - but after shooting my first video and realizing there is no Windows app I was like wait what?  ETA on release?

Io ho acquistato la MAX i primi di novembre e ho dovuto usare un pc apple per elaborare i video perché per windows non c'è un supporto adeguato.

Hanno rilasciato un aggiornamento del software expoter ma ancora non puoi usare i 5.6k. 

Ultimo aggiornamento 1 mese fa!

Puoi usare gopro export per convertire i file e poi il programma della concorrenza insta360 studio per fissare le posizioni nei video a 360 gradi (su windows), su apple funzona il gopro vr player.

any news Gopro guys about the max player? Can you give us some info at least when you want to release it more or less so people not gonna ask about the same all the time. Until April, end of the year 2020? Give us some info lol not only one sentence that you will update this page when you will have the release date. It is so frustrating that we can't use our product properly big - plus whenever we plug gopro max via cable the computer doesn't see the gopro even though there is a sound lol joke and it's not only me there are more people and no this is not a fault of our computers or wrong cables or SD cards :/ Thank you 360 video not supported lol so why do you release product that's not ready to use just because you have to release something and gopro team doesn't have time to even finish it. Gopro 2020 will be just the plastic and the inside you will get in march 2021 software 2022. If you not ready make a delay with the product not with us, or at least inform people that you have gopro max but you want be able to edit your video unless you have adobe or Mac....
